Julius-Richard Bchi (1924-1984) was a Swiss logician and a mathematician who received his Dr. sc. nat. in 1950 
at the ETH Zrich under the supervision of Paul Bernays. Almost half a century ago, in 1962, he invented what is
now called the Bchi automaton. In the recent years there has been tremendous efforts devoted to extending Bchi's 
results. I The aim of this workshop is to bring together some among the best specialists from this new trend of 
automata theory and discuss the existing results and the ones to come.
