Topics
------
This joint RTA and TLCA conference is the major forum for the presentation of 
research on all aspects of rewriting and typed lambda-calculi. Areas of 
interest include but are not limited to:
- Foundations: string rewriting; term rewriting; graph rewriting; 
lambdacalculi; higher-order rewriting; binding techniques; constrained 
rewriting and deduction; categorical and infinitary rewriting; stochastic 
rewriting; net rewriting; Petri nets; higher-dimensional rewriting; process 
calculi; explicit substitution; tree automata; confluence; termination; 
complexity; modularity.
- Algorithmic aspects and implementation: strategies; matching; unification; 
anti-unification; narrowing; constraint solving; theorem proving; completion 
techniques; implementation techniques; parallel execution; certification of 
rewriting properties; abstract machines; automated (non)termination and 
confluence provers; automated complexity analysis; SMT solving; system 
descriptions.
- Logic: proof theory; natural deduction; sequent calculi; proof assistants; 
cut elimination and normalization; propositions as types; linear logic and 
proof nets; equational logic; rewriting logic; rewriting calculi; proof 
checking; reasoning about programming languages and logics; homotopy type 
theory;
type-theoretic aspects of complexity; implicit computational complexity.
- Types: dependent types; polymorphism; intersection types and related 
approaches; subtyping; type inference and type checking; types in databases.
- Semantics: denotational semantics; operational semantics; game semantics; 
realisability; domain theory; categorical models; universal algebra.
- Programming: foundational aspects of functional programming, object oriented 
programming, and other programming paradigms; flow analysis
of higher-type computation; program equivalence; program transformation;
program optimization; program refactoring; rewriting models of programs;
rule-based (functional and logic) programming; control operators; symbolic and 
algebraic computation; system synthesis and verification; XML queries and 
transformations; types in program analysis and verification; analysis of 
cryptographic protocols; systems biology; linguistics.
