2nd Young Researcher Workshop on Automata, Languages and Programming
(YR-ICALP 2015)

July 5th, 2015

The Young Researcher Forum is a satellite workshop of ICALP 2015 that will
be held on Sunday July 5, 2015 in Kyoto (Japan). The aim of the workshop is
to provide a friendly environment so that students can talk about their
ongoing research and discuss research ideas. The workshop is mainly aimed
towards Ph. D. students, but excellent master or bachelor students are
welcome to participate as well.

Participation in the forum provides students with an opportunity to attend
ICALP, LICS, and other satellite workshops, but can also be educating,
motivating, and allow to create or expand their network of collaborators
(both with other students and with senior scientists).

In order to facilitate participation we will provide financial support to
participants. If budget allows, we plan to cover the registration fee and
local expenses so that the student can also attend ICALP and LICS. See for more
details. Best paper and best presentation awards will also be given to the
contributions deemed more interesting (taking into account the academical
age of the authors).

Submission guidelines:
- Abstracts (up to four pages in LNCS style) should be submitted through
EasyChair webpage [].
Given the space constraints, proof of the claims are not needed. However,
the committee reserves the right to ask for more details if deemed

-Topics must fit into the general theme of ICALP conference. Submissions of
all three tracks will be accepted. See ICALP's website for more details.

- The idea of the event is for young researchers to present new and ongoing
work. As such, submissions should not have appeared (or be scheduled to
appear) in any formally reviewed conference or journal.

- Accepted manuscripts will be compiled in a collection of abstracts. This
collection is not a formal publication, and as such authors are encouraged
to submit their publication elsewhere after the conference.

- At least one of the authors must be a young researcher (that is, without
a formal doctorate) who must present the work at the workshop.

- Submissions will undergo a two-phase submission process. After the first
review, authors will receive a description of changes needed to be
implemented (in both content and presentation of the paper). In the second
phase, the committee will verify that the required changes have been
implemented satisfactorily, and notifications of final acceptance will be
