10th International Workshop on Confluence

23rd July 2021, Buenos Aires, Argentina

Colocated with FSCD



Confluence provides a general notion of determinism and has been conceived as one of the central properties of rewriting systems. Confluence relates to many topics of rewriting (completion, modularity, termination, commutation, etc.) and has been investigated in many formalisms of rewriting, such as first-order rewriting, lambda-calculi, higher-order rewriting, constraint rewriting, conditional rewriting, and so on. Recently there is a renewed interest in confluence research, resulting in new techniques, tool support, confluence competition, and certification as well as in new applications. The scope of the workshop is all these aspects of confluence and related topics.

The goal of the workshop is to provide a forum for researchers interested in the topic of confluence to exchange and share new developments in the field. The workshop will enable discussion on theoretical results, new problems, applications, implementations and benchmarks, and share the current state-of-the-art on the development of confluence tools.

The 10th Confluence Competition CoCo 2021 will run live during IWC 2021.
