The 22nd International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and
Applications (RTA 2011) is organized as part of the
Federated Conference on Rewriting, Deduction, and Programming
(RDP 2011), together with the International Conference on
Typed Lambda Calculi and Applications (TLCA 2011), and several
RDP 2011 will be held at the University of Novi Sad, Serbia.

Notification: March 4, 2011 (Friday)
Final version: April 3, 2011 (Sunday)

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; analysis of cryptographic protocols;
rule-based (functional and logic) programming; symbolic and algebraic
computation; theorem proving; system synthesis and verification;
proof checking; reasoning about programming languages and logics;
program transformation; XML queries and transformations
* Foundations: matching and unification; narrowing;
strategies; rewriting calculi; constraint solving; tree automata;
termination; complexity; combination;
* Frameworks: string, term, and graph rewriting; lambda-calculus and
higher-order rewriting; constrained rewriting/deduction;
categorical and infinitary rewriting; integration of decision procedures;
net rewriting; binding techniques;
* Implementation: implementation techniques; parallel execution;
rewrite tools; termination checking; abstract machines; explicit
* Semantics: equational logic; rewriting logic; rewriting models of
Ashish Tiwari (SRI,USA) and Sophie Tison (Univ. Lille and LIFL, France) will be invited
speakers at RTA.
Stephanie Weirich, Univ. Pennsylvania will be the invited RDP speaker\\
BEST PAPER AWARD:
A prize of 500 Euro will be given to the best paper as judged by the
program committee. The program committee may decline to make the award
or may split it among several papers.

RTA proceedings will be published by LIPIcs (Leibniz International
Proceedings in Informatics). LIPIcs is open
access, meaning that publications will be available online and free of
charge, and authors keep the copyright for their papers. LIPIcs
publications are indexed in DBLP. STACS, FSTTCS and ICLP proceedings also
appear in LIPIcs. See
http://www.dagstuhl.de/en/publications/lipics for more information about
Printed proceedings of RTA will be provided to the participants at the conference.
Submissions must be original and not submitted for publication
elsewhere. Submissions must fall into one of the
following categories (to be indicated in the title page):
1. Regular research Papers: describing new results; they will be judged
on correctness and significance.
2. Experience papers: describing the experience of applying rewriting
techniques in other areas; they will be judged on relevance and
comparison with other approaches.
3. Problem sets that provide realistic and interesting challenges in
the field of rewriting.
4. System descriptions; they should contain a link to a working system
and will be judged on usefulness and design.
All submissions will be judged on originality and quality of
presentation. Submissions in the first three categories can be up to 15
proceedings pages long, system descriptions up to 10 proceedings pages.
Additional material, for instance proof details, may be given in an
appendix which is not subject to the page limit.
However, submissions must be self-contained within the respective page
limit; reading the appendix should not be
necessary to assess the merits of a submission.
Abstracts and papers must be submitted electronically through the
EasyChair system at:
INSTRUCTIONS FOR AUTHORS:
Submitted works are limited to 15 pages, including references.
An appendix may or may not be part of the submission, which
will not be included in the proceedings. Submissions must
use the LaTeX class lipics.cls, and should take the information on the LaTeX
formatting into acount. LaTeX files and formatting information is
available for download at
Questions concerning submissions may be addressed to the PC chair,
Manfred Schmidt-Schauss (schauss "AT" ki.informatik.uni-frankfurt.de).
