Abstract : In the context of the rewriting calculus, we introduce and study an exception mechanism that allows us to express in a simple way rewriting strategies and that is therefore also useful for expressing theorem proving tactics. The proposed exception mechanism is expressed in a confluent calculus which gives the ability to simply express the semantics of the first tactical and to describe in full details the expression of conditional rewriting.
