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:
- foundations and models of RL;
- languages based on RL, including implementation issues;
- RL as a logical framework;
- RL as a semantic framework, including applications of RL to
  object-oriented systems, concurrent and/or parallel systems,
  interactive, distributed, open ended and mobile systems,
  specification of languages and systems;
- use of RL to provide rigorous support for model-based software
- formalisms related to RL, including real-time and probabilistic
  extensions of RL, tile logic, rewriting approaches to behavioral
- verification techniques for RL specifications, including equational
  and coherence methods, and verification of properties expressed in
  first-order, higher-order, modal and temporal logics;
- comparisons of RL with existing formalisms having analogous aims;
- application of RL to specification and analysis of distributed
  systems, physical systems.

The proceedings will be published in Springer's Lecture Notes in
Computer Science (LNCS) 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They must be unpublished and not submitted simultaneously for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 should not exceed 15 pages,
should be formatted according to the guidelines for Springer LNCS papers
and should be submitted electronically using Easychair:


Authors of selected papers will be invited to publish extended versions
of their papers in special issue of The Journal of Logic and Algebraic


There will also be a rewrite engine competition at WRLA'10.
If you are a rewrite engine developer, you are welcome to participate.
A paper will be published in the proceedings, with all the tool
participants as authors, where the preoblems and the results of
the competition will be discussed. Feel free to contact the WRLA'10
rewrite engine competition organizer, Francisco Duran
  for questions or further clarifications.
