The 17th International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications
(RTA'06) is organized as part of the Federated Logic Conference (FLoC),
collocated with CAV, ICLP, IJCAR, LICS, SAT, and several affiliated workshops.

 Feb 15, 2006: Deadline for electronic submission of title and abstract
 Feb 22, 2006: Deadline for electronic submission of papers
 May 01, 2006: Notification of acceptance of papers
 Jun 01, 2006: 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; proof checking; reasoning about programming languages and
 * Foundations: matching and unification; narrowing; completion techniques;
   strategies; constraint solving; explicit substitutions; tree automata;
 * Frameworks: string, term, graph, and proof rewriting; lambda-calculus and
   higher-order rewriting; proof nets; constrained rewriting/deduction;
   categorical and infinitary rewriting;
 * Implementation: compilation techniques; parallel execution; rewrite tools;
   termination checking;
 * Semantics: equational logic; rewriting logic.

The following workshops are affiliated with RTA'06:
 * HOR'06: 3rd International Workshop on Higher-Order Rewriting
 * RULE'06: 7th International Workshop on Rule-Based Programming
 * UNIF'06: 20th International Workshop on Unification
 * WG1.6: Annual meeting of the IFIP Working Group 1.6 on Term Rewriting.
 * WRS'06: 6th International Workshop on Reduction Strategies in Rewriting
    and Programming
 * WST'06: 8th International Workshop on Termination

Please refer to the RTA'06 web site for further information on the workshops.

Randy Bryant will be the joint plenary speaker of LICS, RTA and SAT. More
RTA invited speakers will be announced later.
