International Workshop on Reduction Strategies in Rewriting and Programming (WRS 2001)

  • Deadline: March
  • Conference: May


Reduction strategies in rewriting and programming have attracted an increasing attention within the last years. New types of reduction strategies have been invented and investigated, and new results on rewriting / computation under particular strategies have been obtained. Research in this field ranges from primarily theoretical questions about reduction strategies to very practical application and implementation issues. The need for a deeper understanding of reduction strategies in rewriting and programming, both in theory and practice, is obvious, since they bridge the gap between unrestricted general rewriting (computation) and (more deterministic) rewriting with particular strategies (programming). Moreover, reduction strategies provide a natural way to go from operational principles (e.g., graph and term rewriting, narrowing, lambda-calculus) and semantics (e.g., normalization, computation of values, infinitary normalization, head-normalization) to implementations of programming languages.

Therefore any progress in this area is likely to be of interest not only to the rewriting community, but also to neighbouring fields like functional programming, functional-logic programming, and termination proofs of algorithms.

The workshop wants to provide a forum for the presentation and discussion of new ideas and results, recent developments, new research directions, as well as of surveys on existing knowledge in this area. Furthermore we aim at fostering interaction and exchange between researchers and students actively working on such topics. The workshop will be held in conjunction with RTA 2001 in Utrecht (The Netherlands) on May 26, 2001. It will feature 2 invited talks, a panel discussion, and contributed presentations selected from the submissions, with ample time for discussion.
