CALL FOR PAPERS: Rewriting techniques and Applications, 28 May - 2 Jun 2012, JAPAN

http://rta2012.trs.cm.is.nagoya-u.ac.jp/

RTA 2012- Rewriting Techniques and Applications 23rd International Conference Nagoya (Japan)

The 23rd International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications (RTA 2012) is the major
forum for the presentation of research on rewriting.


IMPORTANT DATES:
Abstract:           Jan 04, 2012
Paper Submission:   Jan 09, 2012
Notification:       Mar 02, 2012
Final version:      Mar 26, 2012

RTA 2012 seeks original submissions 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; SMT solving; theorem proving; system
    synthesis and verification; proof checking; reasoning about
    programming languages and logics; program transformation;
    XML queries and transformations; systems biology;

  * Foundations: equational logic; rewriting logic; rewriting models
    of programs;  matching and unification; narrowing; completion
    techniques; strategies; rewriting calculi; constraint solving;
    tree automata; termination; complexity; combination;

  * Frameworks: string, term, and graph rewriting; lambda-calculus
    and higher-order rewriting; constrained rewriting/deduction;
    categorical and infinitary rewriting; stochastic rewriting;
    net rewriting; binding techniques; Petri nets;

  * Implementation: implementation techniques; parallel execution;
    rewrite and completion tools; confluence and termination checking;
    certification of rewriting properties; abstract machines; explicit
    substitutions;

BEST PAPER AWARD:
An award is given to the best paper or papers as decided by the program committee.

STUDENT SUPPORT:
Limited student support will be available and announced in future versions of this call.

PUBLICATION:
RTA proceedings will be published by LIPIcs (Leibniz International Proceedings in Informatics). 
LIPIcs is open access, meaning that publications will be available online and free of charge, and 
authors keep the copyright for their papers. LIPIcs publications are indexed in DBLP. STACS, 
FSTTCS and ICLP proceedings also appear in LIPIcs. 
See http://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics for more information about LIPIcs.
Accepted papers will be considered for publication in a special issue of the journal Logical 
Methods in Computer Science (LMCS).

SUBMISSIONS:
Submissions must be original and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Submission categories 
include regular research papers, applications of rewriting techniques, problem sets, and system 
descriptions.

The page limit for submissions is 10 proceedings pages for system descriptions and 15 proceedings 
pages for all other categories. Additional material may be provided in an appendix which is not 
subject to the page limit. However, submissions must be self-contained within the respective page 
limit; reading the appendix should not be necessary to assess the merits of a submission.

Submissions are accepted in either Postscript or PDF format.

Abstracts and papers must be submitted electronically through the EasyChair system at:
       http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=RTA2012

Questions concerning submissions may be addressed to the PC chair, Ashish Tiwari by emailing
