Dear colleagues,

Please find below the second call for papers for UNIF 2019, the
33rd International Workshop on Unification, proposed as a satellite
event for FSCD 2019.

We would be very grateful if you could help us disseminating it
among your interested students and colleagues, and of course
much more grateful if you consider submitting a paper.

Best regards

Serdar Erbatur and Daniele Nantes
UNIF 2019 Co-chairs

Second Call for Papers: UNIF 2019

The 33rd International Workshop on Unification is the 33rd event in a series
of international meetings devoted to unification theory and its applications.
Unification is concerned with the problem of making two terms equal, finding
solutions for equations, or making formulas equivalent.  It is a fundamental
process used in a number of fields of computer science, including automated
reasoning, term rewriting, logic programming, natural language processing,
program analysis, types, etc.

Traditionally, the scope of the UNIF workshops has covered the topic of
unification in a broad sense. Topics of interest to this forum include, but
are not limited to:

    Unification algorithms, calculi, and implementations
    Equational unification and unification modulo theories
    Admissibility of Inference Rules
    Unification in modal, temporal and description logics
    Formalisation of unification
    Matching Problems
    Unification in Special Theories
    Higher-Order Unification
    Combination problems
    Constraint Solving
    Complexity Issues
    Type Checking and reconstruction

The International Workshop on Unification (UNIF) is a yearly forum for
researchers in unification theory and related fields to meet old and new
colleagues, to present recent (even unfinished) work, and to discuss new
ideas and trends. It is also a good opportunity for young researchers and
scientists working in related areas to get an overview of the state of the art
in unification theory.

The workshop is proposed to be hosted by the 4th International Conference
on Formal Structures for Computation and Deduction (FSCD, Dortmund, 24-29
June 2019).

**  Invited Speakers

Jörg Siekmann (DFKI and University of Saarland)
Narciso Marti-Oliet (Universidad Complutense de Madrid)

**  Submission Instructions

Following the tradition of UNIF, we call for submissions of abstracts (5 pages)
in EasyChair style, to be submitted electronically as PDF through the EasyChair
submission site:


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

Accepted abstracts will be presented at the workshop and included in
the informal
proceedings of the workshop, available in printed form at the workshop and in
electronic form from the UNIF homepage:


Based on the number and quality of submissions we will decide whether
to organise
a special journal issue.

**  Important Dates

Submission of titles and abstracts: April 14, 2019
Submission of full paper:  April 21, 2019
Author notification: May 31, 2019
Camera-ready papers: June 4, 2019
UNIF 2019: June 24, 2019 (intended)
