UNIF is the main international meeting on unification. Unification is concerned with the problem of identifying given terms, either syntactically or modulo a given logical theory. Syntactic unification is the basic operation of most automated reasoning systems, and unification modulo theories can be used, for instance, to build in special equational theories into theorem provers.
The aim of UNIF 2003, as that of the previous meetings, is to to bring together people interested in unification, present recent (even unfinished) work, and discuss new ideas and trends in unification and related fields. In particular, it is intended to offer a good opportunity for young researches and researchers working in related areas to get an overview of the current state of the art in unification theory and get in contact with the experts in the field.
This workshop is the seventeenth in the series: UNIF'87 (Val D'Ajol, France), UNIF'88 (Val D'Ajol, France), UNIF'89 (Lambrecht, Germany), UNIF'90 (Leeds, England), UNIF'91 (Barbizon, France), UNIF'92 (Dagstuhl, Germany), UNIF'93 (Boston, USA), UNIF'94 (Val D'Ajol, France), UNIF'95 (Sitges, Spain), UNIF'96 (Herrsching, Germany), UNIF'97 (Orléans, France), UNIF'98 (Rome, Italy), UNIF'99 (Frankfurt, Germany), UNIF'00 (Pittsburgh, USA), UNIF'01 (Siena, Italy), UNIF'02 (Copenhagen, Denmark).
This worshop will include a panel on Open Problems in Unification
TOPICS OF INTEREST
The meeting will include invited talks, contributed talks, and social time to discuss current topics of interest, which include (but are not limited to):
BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD
An award of 300 EUR will be given to the best paper exclusively written by one or several young researchers who have not yet obtained their PhD degrees. The organizing committee may decline to make the award or may split it among several papers. Papers included in this category should be clearly marked "student paper" in the submission.
Authors are invited to submit via email an abstract (1-5 pages), a paper (no longer than 15 pages), or a system description (no more than 5 pages) in Postscript or PDF format to firstname.lastname@example.org before April 17, 2003.
