                  Call for Papers
                     UNIF 2014
   The 28th International Workshop on Unification
          July 13, 2014. Vienna, Austria
    a FLoC workshop hosted by RTA-TLCA and IJCAR

UNIF 2014 is the 28th event in a series of international meetings devoted to
unification theory and its applications. Unification is concerned with the
problem of identifying terms, 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.

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 current state of the art in
unification theory.

A non-exhaustive list of topics of interest includes:

  * syntactic and equational unification
  * matching
  * constraint solving
  * unification in modal, temporal, and description logics
  * narrowing
  * disunification
  * anti-unification
  * semi-unification
  * higher-order unification
  * complexity issues
  * implementation techniques
  * applications

Short papers or extended abstracts, up to 5 pages in EasyChair style, should be
submitted electronically as PDF files through the EasyChair submission site:


Accepted abstracts will be presented at the workshop and included in the
preliminary proceedings, available in the electronic form at the workshop and
also at the UNIF web page:
