[DMANET] DLT 2023 – Last Call for Papers

DLT 2023 – Last Call for Papers

27th International Conference on Developments in Language Theory
Umeå, Sweden
June 12-16, 2023

The International Conference on Developments in Language Theory (DLT 2023) is an event organized to bring together members of the academic, research, and industrial community who have an interest in formal languages, automata theory, and related areas (see possible topics below).

The conference will be held in conjunction with the 14th International Conference on Words (WORDS 2023) in Umeå, Sweden, one week before midsummer. Hence, for those attending it may be a good opportunity to extend their stay in northern Sweden by a week.

During the conference, one or more prizes for the best student papers (sponsored by MDPI) will be awarded.

*Important dates*
Deadline for abstract submission: February 19, 2023
Deadline for paper submission: February 26, 2023
Notification: April 1, 2023
Final Version: April 10, 2023
DLT 2023: June 12-16, 2023
Deadlines are strict and will not be extended!

*Submission guidelines*
Authors are invited to submit papers presenting original and unpublished research. The proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series. Simultaneous submission to journals or other conferences with published proceedings is not allowed. Submitted papers should not exceed 12 pages excludingbibliography and must follow the LNCS-style LaTeX2e (available at

In order to facilitate the review process, all proofs omitted due to page limitations can be given in an appendix or made accessible through a reliable link to a freely available electronic preprint. Please note that the paper should be self-contained; reviewers are not required to read any additional pages, thus consulting the appendix is up to the reviewer. Papers should be
submitted electronically in PDF through the EasyChair system:

All questions about submissions should be emailed to
