           14th International Workshop on Termination (WST)

         Affiliated with CAV, IJCAR and RTA-TLCA at FLoC 2014
                  17 - 18 July 2014, Vienna, Austria



The Workshop on Termination traditionally brings together, in an
informal setting, researchers interested in all aspects of
termination, whether this interest be practical or theoretical,
primary or derived. The workshop also provides a ground for
cross-fertilisation of ideas from term rewriting and from the
different programming language communities. The friendly atmosphere
enables fruitful exchanges leading to joint research and subsequent

The 14th International Workshop on Termination in Vienna continues the
successful workshops held in St. Andrews (1993), La Bresse (1995),
Ede (1997), Dagstuhl (1999), Utrecht (2001), Valencia (2003),
Aachen (2004), Seattle (2006), Paris (2007), Leipzig (2009),
Edinburgh (2010), Obergurgl (2012), and Bertinoro (2013). More
information on earlier WSTs is available on the Termination Portal:



The 14th International Workshop on Termination welcomes contributions
on all aspects of termination and complexity analysis (and their
automation) for various models of computation, ranging from rewrite
systems and state transition systems to programming languages.

Contributions from the imperative, constraint, functional, logic,
and concurrent programming communities, and papers investigating
applications of complexity or termination (for example in program
transformation or theorem proving) are particularly welcome.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

      * Termination of programs
      * Termination of rewriting
      * Termination analysis of transition systems
      * Complexity of programs
      * Complexity of rewriting
      * Implicit computational complexity
      * Implementation of termination and complexity analysis methods
      * SAT and SMT solving for (non-)termination analysis
      * Certification of termination and complexity proofs
      * Termination orders, well-founded orders, and reduction orders
      * Termination methods for theorem provers
      * Strong and weak normalization of lambda calculi
      * Termination analysis for different language paradigms
      * Invariants for termination proving
      * Challenging termination problems
      * Applications to program transformation and compilation
      * Comparison and classification of termination methods
      * Non-termination and loop detection
      * Termination in distributed and concurrent systems
      * Proof methods for liveness and fairness
      * Well-quasi-order theory
      * Ordinal notations and subrecursive hierarchies

Submissions are short papers / extended abstracts which should not
exceed 5 pages using the LIPIcs style for LaTeX:


There will be no formal reviewing, but we will provide informal
feedback for each submission. Accepted papers will be made available
electronically, both on the WST 2014 web page and on the FLoC USB
proceedings. The workshop proceedings are informal as well. Thus,
submission to WST 2014 is not in conflict with an earlier, concurrent,
or later publication of the same material at a journal, a conference,
or another workshop. In case of simultaneous submissions to several
FLoC events, please state in the abstract on easychair to which other
FLoC venues you are submitting as well.

Papers should be submitted electronically via the submission page:



Paper submission      23 April 2014
Notification          07 May 2014
Final versions due    21 May 2014
Workshop date         17 - 18 July 2014
