                                CALL FOR PAPERS

                       First International Workshop on

    Rewriting Techniques for Program Transformations and Evaluation 

                         affiliated with RTA/TLCA 2014
       (a FLoC 2014 workshop, FLoC is part of the Vienna Summer of Logic 
                        13th July 2014, Vienna, Austria


Aims and Scope
The aim of WPTE is to bring together the researchers working on
program transformations, evaluation, and operationally based programming
language semantics, using rewriting methods, in order to share the
techniques and recent developments and to exchange ideas to encourage
further activation of research in this area.

Topics of interest and in the scope of WPTE are:

* Correctness of program transformations, optimizations and translations.
* Program transformations for proving termination, confluence and other
* Correctness of evaluation strategies.
* Operational semantics of programs, operationally-based program 
   such as contextual equivalences and bisimulations.
* Cost-models for arguing about the optimizing power of transformations 
and the
   costs of evaluation.
* Program transformations for verification and theorem proving purposes.
* Translation, simulation, equivalence of programs with different 
   and evaluation strategies.
* Program transformations for applying rewriting techniques to programs in
   specific programming languages.
* Program inversions and program synthesis.

The programming languages of interest include pure, deterministic, impure,
non-deterministic, concurrent, parallel  languages, and may employ 
paradigms such as functional, logical, typed,  imperative, object-oriented,
and higher-order.

Paper Submissions and Proceedings
WPTE accepts two different kinds of contributions:

* Full-papers:
    Full-papers must represent original work and should be submitted 
using the
    EasyChair interface.  We plan to publish full-papers as formal 
    in the 'OpenAccess Series in Informatics (OASIcs)' of
    'Schloss Dagstuhl Leibniz-Zentrum fuer Informatik'.
    Full-papers should not exceed   12 pages   using the OASIcs 

* Work in progress:
    There will also be a slot for presenting work in progress.
    An extended abstract of at most   4 pages   is required to be 
submitted using
    the EasyChair interface.  These contributions will not be included 
in the
    OASIcs proceedings but they will be distributed to the workshop 

One author of each accepted paper or abstract is expected to present
it at the workshop.

Important Dates
* Submission deadline: 25 April 2014
* Notification of acceptance: 23 May 2014
* Deadline for camera-ready proceedings: 28 May 2014
* Workshop:  13 July 2014, Austria, Vienna
