The 18th International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications
(RTA'07) is organized as part of the Federated Conference on Rewriting,
Deduction, and Programming (RDP'07), which comprises, in addition to RTA'07, 
the conference on Typed Lambda Calculi and Applications (TLCA'07) and eight 
workshops (HOR, PATE, RULE, SecReT, UNIF, WFLP, WRS, and WST).


IMPORTANT DATES:
 Jan 26, 2007: Deadline for electronic submission of title and abstract
 Jan 31, 2007: Deadline for electronic submission of papers
 Apr 02, 2007: Notification of acceptance of papers
 Apr 23, 2007: Deadline for final versions of accepted papers


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

 * Foundations: matching and unification; narrowing; completion techniques;
   strategies; constraint solving; explicit substitutions; tree automata;
   termination; combination;

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

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

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


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