April 1-2, 2006 Workshop in Vienna



Rewriting logic (RL) is a natural model of computation and an expressive semantic framework for concurrency, parallelism, communication and interaction. It can be used for specifying a wide range of systems and languages in various application fields. It also has good properties as a metalogical framework for representing logics. In recent years, several languages based on RL (ASF+SDF, CafeOBJ, ELAN, Maude) have been designed and implemented. The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers with a common interest in RL and its applications, and to give them the opportunity to present their recent works, discuss future research directions, and exchange ideas.

The topics of the workshop comprise, but are not limited to,


Asilomar, California, September 3-6, 1996,
Pont-a-Mousson, France, September 1-4, 1998,
Kanazawa, Japan, September 18-20, 2000,
Pisa, Italy, September 19-21, 2002.
Barcelona, Spain, March 27-28, 2004.

The proceedings of the WRLA workshops have been published as volumes 4, 15, 36, 71, and 117 in the Elsevier ENTCS series, available at


Selected papers from WRLA'96 have been published in a special issue of Theoretical Computer Science, Volume 285(2), 2002, and selected papers from WRLA 2004 will appear in a special issue of Higher-Order and Symbolic Computation.


WRLA 2006 will be held in Vienna, Austria in April 1-2, 2006. It is a satellite workshop of ETAPS 2006, the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software. For venue, registration and suggested accommodation see the ETAPS 2006 web page

Submissions will be evaluated by the Program Committee for inclusion in the proceedings, which will be available at the time of the workshop and are expected to be published in the Elsevier ENTCS series.

Papers must contain original contributions, be clearly written, and include appropriate reference to and comparison with related work. They must be unpublished and not submitted simultaneously for publication elsewhere. Papers (of at most 15 pages) should be submitted electronically, preferably as PDF files, to the workshop email address


providing also a text-only abstract, and detailed contact information of the corresponding author.

The final program of the workshop will also include system demonstrations and invited presentations to be determined. Based on the quality and interest of the accepted papers, the program committee will study the possibility of preparing a special issue of a scientific journal in the field.
