This book constitutes the thoroughly refereed post-workshop proceedings of the 6th International Workshop on Theory & Applications of Graph Transformation held in Paderborn, Germany, in November 1998. The 33 revised full papers presented in the book were carefully reviewed & selected from a total of 55 papers presented at the meeting. The book addresses all current aspects in the area. The papers are organized in sections on graph languages, graph theory, categorical approaches, concurrency & distribution, artificial intelligence, visual languages, specification concepts, modularity & refinement, & software engineering.
