7th Workshop on
Non-Classical Models
of Automata and
Applications (NCMA 2015)
August 31 and September 1, 2015, Porto, Portugal

Many non-classical models of automata and grammar-like structures are the natural objects of theoretical computer science. They are studied from different points of view in various areas, both as theoretical concepts and as formal models for applications. The aim of the workshops on "Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications" is to provide an opportunity for researchers who work on different aspects of non-classical models of automata and grammars to exchange and develop novel ideas.
The first workshop on Non-Classical Models of Automata and Applications, NCMA 2009, was held in Wroclaw, Poland, in 2009 as a satellite event of FCT 2009, sponsored by the AutoMathA project of the European Science Foundation (ESF). The second workshop, NCMA 2010, was held in Jena, Germany, as an associated workshop of the Conference on Membrane Computing (CMC 2010), the third workshop, NCMA 2011, was organized at the Universita degli Studi di Milano, Milan, Italy, the fourth workshop, NCMA 2012, was held in Fribourg, Switzerland, and the fifth workshop, NCMA 2013, was held in Umeå, Sweden. Finally, the sixth workshop, NCMA 2014, took place in Kassel, Germany.

NCMA 2015 will take place in Porto, the second largest city in Portugal, located by the Douro river and the Atlantic Ocean. Porto dates back to the IV century and the city center is classified as world heritage patrimony by UNESCO. The city is also known worldwide for the renowned Port Wine.
The venue will be the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto located in Campo Alegre area and very close to the conference hotels.
