The research area of graph grammars and graph transformations dates back only two decades. But already methods and results from the area of graph transformation have been applied in many fields of computer science, such as formal language theory, pattern recognition and generation, compiler construction, software engineering, concurrent and distributed systems modelling, and database design and theory. This volume contains 24 selected and revised papers from an international seminar held in Dagstuhl, Germany, in 1993. The papers cover topics in the following areas: foundations of graph grammars and transformations; and applications of graph transformations to concurrent computing, specification and programming, and pattern generation and recognition.
