Rewriting 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 domains. It also has good properties as a meta-
logical framework for representing logics. Several successful languages
based on rewriting (ASF+SDF, CafeOBJ, ELAN,Maude) have been designed and
implemented. The aim of WRLA is to bring together researchers with a
common interest in rewriting and its applications, and to give them the
opportunity to present their recent work, discuss future research
directions, and exchange ideas.

The topics of the workshop include, but are not limited to:

A. Foundations
foundations and models of rewriting and rewriting logic, including
termination, confluence coherence and complexity
unification, generalization, narrowing, and partial evaluation
constrained rewriting and symbolic algebra
graph rewriting
tree automata
rewriting strategies
rewriting-based calculi and explicit substitution

B. Rewriting as a Logical and Semantic Framework
uses of rewriting and rewriting logic as a logical framework,
including deduction modulo
uses of rewriting as a semantic framework for programming language
semantics, rewriting semantics of concurrency models, distributed
systems, and network protocols
rewriting semantics of real-time, hybrid, and probabilistic systems
uses of rewriting for compilation and language transformation

C. Rewriting Languages
rewriting-based declarative languages
type systems for rewriting
implementation techniques
tools supporting rewriting langages

D. Verification Techniques
verification of confluence, termination, coherence, sufficient
completeness, and related properties
temporal, modal and reachability logics for verifying dynamic
properties of rewrite theories
explicit-state and symbolic model checking techniques for
verification of rewrite theories
rewriting-based theorem proving, including (co)inductive theorem
rewriting-based constraint solving and satisfiability
rewriting-semantics-based verification and analysis of programs

E. Applications
applications in logic, mathematics, physics, and biology
rewriting models of biology, chemistry, and membrane systems
security specification and verification
applications to distributed, network, mobile, and cloud computing
specification and verification of real-time, hybrid, probabilistic,
and cyber-physical systems
specification and verification of critical systems
applications to model-based software engineering
applications to engineering and planning.

The program of the workshop will include regular papers, tool papers,
and work-in-progress presentations. The program will also contain
nvited talks, invited papers, and tutorials to be determined by the
program committee.

Regular papers must contain original contributions, be clearly written,
include appropriate references, and comparison with related work. They
must be unpublished and not submitted simultaneously for publication

Tool papers have to present a new tool, a new tool component, or novel
extensions to an existing tool. They should provide a short description
of the theoretical foundations with relevant citations, emphasize the
design and implementation, and give a clear account of the tool’s
functionality. The described tools must be available via the web.

Work-in-progress papers present early-stage work or other types of
innovative or thought-provoking work related to the topics of the
workshop. The difference between work-in-progress and regular papers is
that work-in-progress submissions represent work that has not reached
yet a level of completion that would warrant the full refereed selection
process. We encourage researchers and practitioners to submit work-in-
progress papers as this provides a unique opportunity for sharing
valuable ideas, eliciting useful feedback on ongoing work, and fostering
discussions and collaborations among colleagues.

All submissions should be formatted according to the guidelines for
Springer LNCS papers, and should be submitted electronically using
EasyChair. Papers should be submitted electronically as a PDF file via
the Easychair system at

Regular and work-in-progress papers should not exceed 15 pages including
references. Tool papers should not exceed 6 pages including references
and may have an appendix of up to 4 additional pages with usage details
and tool demonstration.

All submissions will be evaluated by the program committee. Regular
papers, tool papers, and work-in-progress papers that are accepted will
be presented at the workshop and included in the pre-proceedings, which
will be available during the workshop. Following the tradition of the
last editions, regular papers, tool papers, and invited presentations
will be published as a volume in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer
Science (LNCS) series to be distributed after the workshop.

A special issue of JLAMP:the Journal of Logical and Algebraic Methods in
Programming will be devoted to extended versions of selected papers from
WRLA 2018.
