Combinatorics on Words

Place and Date

Hojsova stráž, Czech Republic, May 17 – 21 2010

Topic and Scope

The main theme is combinatorics on words and its applications in physics, informatics, and cryptography.
The topics cover

  • properties of infinite words obtained by interval exchange transformation
  • properties of infinite words coding beta-integers in non-standard numeration systems
  • Sturmian words and Sturmian morphisms
  • palindromes in aperiodic infinite words, recurrent infinite words
  • probability and combinatorics

The conference is aimed mainly for graduate and undergraduate students and young researchers in the field.
