Higher-Dimensional Rewriting and Applications

3rd edition of the workshop
September 8-9, 2017, Oxford, United Kingdom
Satellite workshop of FSCD 2017, co-located with the STRING workshop.


Rewriting consists in orienting equalities. This seemingly simple point of view has given rise to a rich theory, which was first developped in computer science for handling strings and terms, and was then extended over the recent years to many other settings (operads, monoidal categories, higher categories, etc.), allowing it to have applications in algebra, homotopy theory and physics. All these generalizations fit into the general scope of higher-dimensional rewriting theory, which has emerged as a unifying algebraic framework.

The aim of the workshop is to gather people interested in pushing further rewriting theory, using (higher) category theory as a common language. It is open to all topics concerning higher-dimensional generalizations and applications of rewriting theory, including


Deadline for submissions: June 25, 2017.
