A prize of 500 EUR will be given to the best paper as judged by the program committee. The program committee may decline to make the award or may split it among several papers.


Submissions must be original and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions should fall into one of the following categories:

1. Regular research papers describing new results; they will be judged on correctness and significance.

2. Papers describing the experience of applying rewriting techniques in other areas; they will be judged on relevance and comparison with other approaches.

3. Problem sets that provide realistic and interesting challenges in the field of rewriting.

4. System descriptions; they should contain a link to a working system and will be judged on usefulness and design.

All submissions will be judged on originality. Submissions in the first three categories can be up to 15 proceedings pages long, system descriptions 4 proceedings pages.
