[isabelle] International School on Rewriting 2017: First Call for Participation
First Call for Participation
9th INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL ON REWRITING (ISR 2017)
July 3-7, 2017, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
Early registration deadline: May 15, 2017
The 9th International School on Rewriting (ISR 2017) is aimed at master
and PhD students, researchers, and practitioners interested in the study
of rewriting concepts and their applications.
The school features lectures by renowned researchers in rewriting, and
is organized in two parallel tracks: the Basic Track and the Advanced Track.
The BASIC TRACK is intended for students who enter the field. The basic
track can, if desired, be round off with an examination of 3EC.
The teachers of the Basic Track are
Aart Middeldorp (University of Innsbruck)
Sarah Winkler (University of Innsbruck)
The ADVANCED TRACK consists of eight shorter courses, showing different
areas of rewriting research and applications. The teachers and courses
of the Advanced Track are:
Beniamino Accatoli (INRIA)
The Complexity of Beta-Reduction
Carsten Fuhs (University of London)
Proving Program Termination via Term Rewriting
Thomas Genet (IRISA, France)
Tree Automata for Reachability in Rewriting
Philippe Malbos (University of Lyon) and
Samuel Mimram (Ecole Polytechnique)
Two-dimensional Rewriting Techniques and Applications
Temur Kutsia (University of Linz)
Solving Equational Problems: Matching and Unification
Julian Nagele (University of Innsbruck) and
Vincent van Oostrom (University of Innsbruck)
Christian Sternagel (University of Innsbruck) and
RenÃ Thiemann (University of Innsbruck)
Formalizing Rewriting in Isabelle
Johannes Waldmann (RWTH Leipzig)
Weighted Automata and Rewriting
There will be the opportunity for participants to present their own

International Schools on Rewriting are promoted
by the IFIP Working Group 1.6 Term Rewriting.
Rewriting is a branch of computer science whose origins go back
to the origins of computer science itself (with Thue, Church, Post,
and many other prominent researchers). It has strong links with
mathematics, algebra, and logic, and it is the basis of well-known
programming paradigms like functional and equational programming.
In these programming paradigms and corresponding languages, the notions
of reduction, pattern matching, confluence, termination, strategy,
etc., are essential. Rewriting provides a solid framework for
understanding, using, and teaching all these notions. Rewriting
techniques are also used in many other areas of software engineering
(scripting, prototyping, automated transformation of legacy systems,
refactoring, web services, etc.) Rewriting techniques play a relevant
role in computing research, education, and industry.
