The Festschrift Symposium will honor Professor José Meseguer, who will celebrate his 65th birthday in 2015. José Meseguer is a leading computer science researcher who has made key contributions to computer security, logic, rewriting, algebraic specification, formal semantics of models of concurrency and of programming languages, and a large number of other fields. He is the inventor of rewriting logic and the main developer of the formal modeling language and analysis tool Maude.

After obtaining a PhD in mathematics from the University of Zaragoza, and spending a period at Berkeley, Meseguer worked in the Computer Science Laboratory at SRI International until 2001, when he became a professor at the Department of Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

The Festschrift Symposium will feature presentations of invited research articles and essays, which will be published by Springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science in their Festschrift Series.
