The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

A. Foundations

  • foundations and models of rewriting and rewriting logic, including termination, confluence, coherence and complexity
  • unification, generalization, narrowing, and partial evaluation
  • constrained rewriting and symbolic algebra
  • graph rewriting
  • tree automata
  • rewriting strategies
  • rewriting-based calculi and explicit substitution

B. Rewriting as a Logical and Semantic Framework

  • uses of rewriting and rewriting logic as a logical framework, including deduction modulo
  • uses of rewriting as a semantic framework for programming language semantics
  • rewriting semantics of concurrency models, distributed systems, and network protocols
  • rewriting semantics of real-time, hybrid, and probabilistic systems
  • uses of rewriting for compilation and language transformation

C. Rewriting Languages

  • rewriting-based declarative languages
  • type systems for rewriting
  • implementation techniques
  • tools supporting rewriting languages

D. Verification Techniques

  • verification of confluence, termination, coherence, sufficient completeness, and related properties
  • temporal, modal and reachability logics for verifying dynamic properties of rewrite theories
  • explicit-state and symbolic model checking techniques for verification of rewrite theories
  • rewriting-based theorem proving, including (co)inductive theorem proving
  • rewriting-based constraint solving and satisfiability
  • rewriting-semantics-based verification and analysis of programs

E. Applications

  • applications in logic, mathematics, physics, and biology
  • rewriting models of biology, chemistry, and membrane systems
  • security specification and verification
  • applications to distributed, network, mobile, and cloud computing
  • specification and verification of real-time, hybrid, probabilistic, and cyber-physical systems
  • specification and verification of critical systems
  • applications to model-based software engineering
  • applications to engineering and planning.
