WORDS is a biannual international conference covering the mathematical theory of words (sequences of symbols) from all points of view: combinatorial, algebraic, algorithmic, as well as its applications to biology, linguistics, physics, and others. The previous WORDS conferences have taken place in Rouen (1997, 1999), Palermo (2001), Turku (2003, 2013), Montreal (2005), Marseille (2007), Salerno (2009), Prague (2011). This year we celebrate the 10th edition of WORDS.

The list of TALKS accepted for presentation at WORDS 2015 can be seen here:

A refereed proceedings volume, including extended abstracts of the invited talks as well as original contributions, that fulfil the high quality standards required by a formal publication in computer science, will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. In addition, a local proceedings volume will be published, including, in the spirit of mathematics conferences, a series of less formal contributions informing on current research and work in progress.

In the first day of the conference, an OPEN PROBLEMS session will also be organized.

The PROGRAM COMMITTEE, that selected the talks to be presented at the conference, consists of:
Maxime Crochemore (London), Juhani Karhumaki (Turku), Dirk Nowotka (Kiel - chair), Stepan Holub (Prague), Antonio Restivo (Palermo), Manfred Kufleitner (Stuttgart), Gad Landau (Haifa), Michel Rigo (Liege), James Currie (Winnipeg), Mikhail V. Volkov (Ekaterinburg), Wojciech Plandowski (Warsaw), Luca Zamboni (Lyon).


The social program of the conference includes an excursion and the conference dinner (supported by the organizers), as well as a couple of informal dinners.


The complete schedule of the conference will be soon available on the web-site. A tentative schedule can be seen here:
