The conference, organised under the auspicies of the European Association for Theoretical Computer Science (EATCS), is supported by the New Zealand Royal Society. It will be held at the Auckland Campus of Massey University at Albany in Auckland, New Zealand. The conference will be accompanied by two thematic workshops, the International Workshop on Automata, Structures and Logic (organised by B. Khoussainov) and the International Workshop "Tilings and Cellular Automata" (organised by M. Margenstern).

Original papers are solicited in formal language and automata theory, and related areas. Typical, but not exclusive, topics include: grammars and acceptors for strings, graphs, arrays; efficient text algorithms; combinatorial and algebraic properties of languages; decision problems; relations to complexity theory and logic; picture description and analysis; cryptography; concurrency; DNA and quantum computing.

The proceedings were published as volume 3340 in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) Series.

Extended versions of selected papers from the proceedings have appeared in the special issue of the International Journal of Foundations of Computer Science 16, No. 4 (August 2005). BEATCS Report
