                July 21st, 2002, Copenhagen, Denmark 

                   Held in conjunction with FLOC'02

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

* Applications

  proof checking, 
  theorem proving, 
  declarative programming, 
  program transformation.

* Foundations

  pattern matching,
  syntactic properties,
  type theory.

* Frameworks:
  term rewriting, 
  conditional rewriting, 
  graph rewriting, 
  net rewriting, 
  comparisons of different frameworks.
* Implementation:
  rewriting tools, 
  compilation techniques.

* Semantics:

  semantics of higher-order rewriting, 
  higher-order abstract syntax,


Authors are invited  to submit a one-page abstract  in PostScript format by
e-mail  to Delia.Kesner@lri.fr.   Accepted abstracts  will be  collected in
