              10th International Workshop on 
      Reduction Strategies in Rewriting and Programming 
               29 May 2011, Novi Sad, Serbia

                  An RDP 2011 workshop 
Federated Conference on Rewriting, Deduction, and Programming

This workshop promotes research and collaboration in the area of 
reduction strategies. It encourages the presentation of new 
directions, developments, and results as well as surveys and 
tutorials on existing knowledge in this area. Reduction strategies 
define which (sub)expression(s) should be selected for evaluation 
and which rule(s) should be applied. These choices affect fundamental 
properties of computations such as laziness, strictness, completeness, 
and efficiency, to name a few. For this reason programming languages 
such as Elan, Maude, OBJ, Stratego, and TOM allow the explicit 
definition of the evaluation strategy, whereas languages such as 
Clean, Curry, and Haskell allow its modification. In addition to 
strategies in rewriting and programming, WRS also covers the use of 
strategies and tactics in other areas such as theorem and termination 

Previous editions of the workshop were held in Utrecht (2001), 
Copenhagen (2002), Valencia (2003), Aachen (2004), Nara (2005), 
Seattle (2006), Paris (2007), Hagenberg (2008), Brasilia (2009), 
and Edinburgh (2010); the last one as a joint workshop with the 
STRATEGIES workshop. Further information can be found at the 
permanent site for WRS <http://www.dsic.upv.es/~wrs/>.

WRS 2011 is planned to be co-located with RTA 2011 (22nd International 
Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications), as a satellite 
event of RDP, the Federated Conference on Rewriting, Deduction, and 
Programming. WRS 2011 will be held at Novi Sad, Serbia on 29 May 2011.

Submissions and Publication: Before the workshop, authors are 
invited to submit an extended abstract (max. 5 pages) to be 
formatted in the EasyChair class style through the EasyChair submission site. 
Accepted abstracts will be presented at the workshop and included in the 
preliminary proceedings, available at the workshop. After the workshop, 
authors will be invited to submit a full paper of their presentation 
(typically a 15-pages paper), which will be refereed and considered 
for publication in an electronic journal, such as Electronic Proceedings 
in Theoretical Computer Science. 

Beyond original ideas and recent results not published nor submitted 
elsewhere, we also invite authors to submit a 5-pages abstract 
describing relevant work that has been or will be published elsewhere, 
or work in progress. These submissions will be only considered for 
presentation at the workshop and inclusion in the preliminary 
proceedings but not in the final proceedings.

We envisage publication of a special issue of a journal dedicated to WRS
after the event.
