In recent years, extensions of rewriting techniques that go
beyond the traditional untyped algebraic rewriting framework have
been investigated and developed.  Among these extensions,
conditional and typed systems are particularly important, as are
higher-order systems, graph rewriting systems, etc. 

To further research in these and related areas, the Second
International Workshop will be held this summer.  Topics will
include the theory of conditional rewriting and its application
to programming languages,  specification languages, automated
deduction, as well as typed rewriting, higher-order rewriting,
graph rewriting, combinator based languages, and their
application to parallel architectures, parallel computation
models, and compilation techniques.  (This list is not meant to
be exhaustive.)  Sessions for formal presentations of papers, for
system demonstrations, and for informal discussion are scheduled.
Speakers for keynote lectures to initiate discussion sessions include
V. Breazu-Tannen & J. Gallier, H. Ganzinger, J. Hsiang, J. W. Klop, 
J. Meseguer, A. R. Meyer, and J. L. Remy.

June 11-14, 1990, beginning at 9:30 A.M. on June 11.


Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada

The CTRS Workshop will take place at the downtown Sir George
Williams campus of Concordia University, in the Hall Building at
1455 de Maisonneuve Blvd. West.  Most events will take place in
the Faculty Club on the 7th floor; some others will take place 
in the Department of Computer Science on the 9th floor.


Montreal is served by two airports:  Dorval (for flights
originating in Canada or the USA), and Mirabel (for other
international flights).  At each airport, there is an "Aerocar"
service bringing passengers to the Queen Elizabeth Hotel in 
downtown Montreal.  On the afternoon and evening of June 10, and 
on the morning of June 11, there will be a limousine service from 
the Queen Elizabeth Hotel to the places where accomodation has 
been arranged for the Workshop.

Amtrack, the US passenger rail service, has two daily trains (one
during the day; the other at night) to Montreal from New York
City.  The trip takes about ten hours, and costs about US $79 for
a round trip ticket.  It is possible to connect with these trains
>from Philadelphia, or other eastern US cities.
