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 2008 is to bring together people interested in unification, present recent (even unfinished) work, and discuss new ideas and trends in unification and related fields. This includes scientific presentations, but also descriptions of applications and software using unification as a strong component.
The 22nd International Workshop on Unification is colocated with the 19th International Conference on Rewriting Techniques and Applications, RTA 2008, organised as part of the RISC Summer 2008, which comprises five conferences, six workshops and the Training School in Symbolic Computation, and is followed by the 3rd International School on Rewriting in Obergurgl.
This workshop is the 22nd 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).
