    ********************************************************

The 19th International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and
Applications (RTA 2008) is organised as part of the RISC Summer
2008, which comprises five conferences, five workshops and the
Training School in Symbolic Computation, and is followed by the
3rd International School on Rewriting in Obergurgl.

IMPORTANT DATES:
  Early registration deadline:           June 30, 2008
  Pre-conference workshops:              July 14, 2008
  Conference:                         July 15-17, 2008
  Pre-conference workshops:              July 18, 2008
  IFIP WG 1.6 meeting:                   July 18, 2008

RTA is the major forum for the presentation of research on all
aspects of rewriting. Typical areas of interest include
(but are not limited to):

 * Applications: case studies; analysis of cryptographic protocols;
   rule-based (functional and logic) programming; symbolic and
   algebraic computation; theorem proving; system synthesis and
   verification; proof checking; reasoning about programming
   languages and logics; program transformation;

 * Foundations: matching and unification; narrowing; completion
   techniques; strategies; rewriting calculi, constraint solving;
   tree automata; termination; combination;

 * Frameworks: string, term, and graph rewriting; lambda-calculus
   and higher-order rewriting; constrained rewriting/deduction;
   categorical and infinitary rewriting; integration of decision
   procedures;

 * Implementation: implementation techniques; parallel execution;
   rewrite tools; termination checking;

 * Semantics: equational logic; rewriting logic; rewriting models
   of programs.

INVITED TALKS:
 * Véronique Cortier (LORIA, CNRS, Nancy). 
       Verification Techniques for Cryptographic Protocols.
 * Thomas Hillenbrand (MPI, Saarbrücken).
       Fast Equational Reasoning with Waldmeister. 
 * Albert Rubio (UPC, Barcelona). 
       Present and Future of Proving Termination of Rewriting.

INVITED TUTORIAL:
 *  Erich Kaltofen (North Carolina State University). 
       The algebraic Synthesis of Algorithms.
