UNIF 2022 is associated with IJCAR 2022 part of the Federated Logic 
Conference 2022.

UNIF 2022 is the 36th in a series of annual workshops on unification and 
topics (https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://www.irif.fr/*treinen/unif/__;fg!!IBzWLUs!Ufp81nBbHLcJiCR-osAb1Onv5imGIoF3EG4JCSTlq2cMhbtiqo3txVgt4OJV3rozBSAfUyxg6WdvhTJ0hswXaSNZ3maOkmc$ ). Just as its predecessors', 
the purpose
of UNIF 2022 is to bring together researchers interested in unification 
theory and
its applications, as well as closely related topics, such as matching 
(i.e., one-
sided unification), anti-unification (i.e., the dual problem to 
unification), dis-
unification (i.e., solving equations and inequations) and the 
admissibility problem
(which generalizes unification in modal logics). It is a forum for 
presenting recent
(even unfinished) work, and discuss new ideas and trends in this and 
related fields.

Unification is concerned with the problem of identifying given (first- 
or higher-
order) terms, either syntactically or modulo a theory. It is a 
fundamental technique
that is employed in various areas of Computer Science and Mathematics. 
In particular,
unification algorithms are key components in completion of term 
rewriting systems,
resolution-based theorem proving, and logic programming. But unification 
is, for
example, also investigated in the context of natural language 
processing, program
analysis, types, modal logics, and in knowledge representation.

Submission Information
Following the tradition of UNIF, we call for submissions of extended 
abstracts (5 pages)
in EasyChair style, to be submitted electronically as PDF through the 
EasyChair submission
site: https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=unif2022__;!!IBzWLUs!Ufp81nBbHLcJiCR-osAb1Onv5imGIoF3EG4JCSTlq2cMhbtiqo3txVgt4OJV3rozBSAfUyxg6WdvhTJ0hswXaSNZ_Se9xss$ 

Abstracts will be evaluated by the Program Committee (if necessary with 
support from
external reviewers) regarding their significance for the workshop. We 
also allow submission
of work presented/submitted in/to another conference.

Accepted abstracts will be presented at the workshop and made available 
at the Web-page
of UNIF 2022.
