The long-term goal of this workshop-series is to build a solid and modern CS-research community in Romania, closely connected to the current global research-trends. Generally, our workshop aims also to attract participants from Romania and abroad, helping to establish international collaboration between researchers working on common topics.

The previous editions were Theory Day in Computer Science 2014 (satellite workshop of ICTAC 2014) and DACS 2015 (satellite workshop of CiE 2015). DACS 2016 will be organised as a satellite event of the 18th International Conference on Descriptional Complexity of Formal Systems (DCFS 2016).

The programme of DACS 2016 will host both a series of contributed talks on the topics of the workshop (see here), as well as a tutorial and a series of invited talks given by remarkable researchers (selected by the Programme Committee), surveying recent relevant results in the same areas. The accepted papers as well as extended abstracts of the invited talks will be published in the proceedings volume that will appear as an issue of the Annals of the University of Bucharest.
