This paper presents generalized application conditions (GACs), a new formalism for nested application conditions. GACs are not only suitable for DPO rewriting, but for rewriting in reactive systems as well. The main theorem states that it is possible to construct an equivalent reactive system rule with a GAC for a DPO rule with application conditions under very mild conditions. The resulting reactive system rules live in the cospan category of the category C, in which the DPO rules live. It

It turns out that these GACs for reactive systems provide a slightly more powerful way to control the application of a rewriting rule, than it is possible in the original DPO setting. At the end, we give a short outlook on the applications of this formalism to the field of bisimulation theory, sketch our latest results and discuss future work.
