The WATA conferences cover all aspects of weighted automata, ranging from the theory of quantitative automata and logics to applications for real-time systems and natural language processing. The aim is to present tutorials and survey lectures by outstanding scientists in this area. Moreover, we encourage everybody to participate in this workshop and to present their own technical contribution in this area.
