Computing with Terms and Graphs

8th International Workshop
Vienna Summer o f Logic

13 July 2014, Vienna


Research in term and graph rewriting ranges from theoretical questions to practical issues. Computing with graphs handles the sharing of common subexpressions in a natural and seamless way, and improves the efficiency of computations in space and time. Sharing is ubiquitous in several research areas, for instance: the modelling of first- and higher-order term rewriting by (acyclic or cyclic) graph rewriting, the modelling of biological or chemical abstract machines, the implementation techniques of programming languages: many implementations of functional, logic, object-oriented, concurrent and mobile calculi are based on term graphs. Term graphs are also used in automated theorem proving and symbolic computation systems working on shared structures. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers working in different domains on term and graph transformation and to foster their interaction, to provide a forum for presenting new ideas and work in progress, and to enable newcomers to learn about current activities in term graph rewriting.

Previous editions of the workshop took place in Barcelona (2002), Rome (2004), Vienna (2006), Braga (2007), York (2009), Saarbrücken (2011), and Rome (2013). The permanent TERMGRAPH site has further information. This year TERMGRAPH is affiliated with the joint RTA and TLCA conference, which is part of FLoC, which in turn participates in the Vienna Summer of Logic 2014.
