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,
      - rewriting approaches to behavioral specifications,
      - tile logic;
  - 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 final program of the workshop will include regular papers, work-in-progress 
presentations, and invited presentations to be determined. 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 They must be unpublished and not submitted simultaneously for 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. They should be formatted according to the guidelines for 
Springer LNCS papers, and should be submitted electronically using EasyChair.

Papers should not exceed 15 pages.

All submissions will be evaluated by the Program Committee. All accepted papers will be 
presented at the workshop and included in the proceedings, which will be published by 
the organization of ETAPS. Regular papers and invited presentation papers will also be 
published in a volume in Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series. 

Depending on the number and the quality of the contributions, we will consider the 
preparation of a special issue in some scientific journal in the field with extended 
versions of a selection of the papers of the workshop.
