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 2006, 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. This includes scientific presentations, but also descriptions of applications and softwares using unification as a strong component.
Submission and PublicationAuthors are invited to submit 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 using the UNIF'06 submission page, handled by the EasyChair conference system.
Authors have been encouraged to use LaTeX2e and the Springer llncs class files.
Informal proceedings of accepted contributions will be available on-line. A hard copy will be distributed at the workshop to registered participants.
