2nd CALL FOR PAPERS: Rewriting Techniques and Applications, 24-26 June 2013 Eindhoven, THE NETHERLANDS

RTA 2013

abstract submission    February 1   2013
paper submission       February 5   2013
rebuttal period        March 18-21  2013
notification           April 4      2013
final version          April 26     2013

The 24th International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications
(RTA 2013) is organized as part of the Federated Conference on Rewriting,
Deduction, and Programming (RDP 2013), together with the 11th International
Conference on Typed Lambda Calculi and Applications (TLCA 2013), and several
workshops. RDP 2013 will be held at the Eindhoven University of Technology
in the Netherlands.

- Simon Peyton-Jones (Microsoft Research, UK)
joint invited speaker for TLCA+RTA 2013
- Jarkko Kari (University of Turku, Finland) invited speaker for RTA 2013
- Mitsu Okada (Keio University, Japan) invited speaker for RTA 2013

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;
   SMT solving; theorem proving; system synthesis and verification; proof
   checking; reasoning about programming languages and logics; program
   transformation; XML queries and transformations; systems biology;
   homotopy theory; implicit computational complexity;

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

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; higher-dimensional rewriting;

Implementation: implementation techniques; parallel execution; rewrite and
   completion tools; certification of rewriting properties; abstract
   machines; explicit substitutions; automated (non)termination and
   confluence provers; automated complexity analysis.

The 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. For more information about LIPIcs please consult:

Submissions must be
- original and not submitted for publication elsewhere,
- written in English,
- a research paper, or a problem set, or a system description,
- in pdf prepared with pdflatex using the LIPIcs stylefile:
- at most 10 pages for system description,
   at most 15 pages for the other two types of submissions
- submitted electronically through the EasyChair system at:

The page limit and the deadline for submission are strict.

Additional material for instance proof details, may be given 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.
