The dependency pair technique of Arts and Giesl for termination proofs of term rewrite systems is extended to rewriting modulo equations. Up to now, such an extension was only known in the special case of AC-rewriting. In contrast to that, the proposed technique works for arbitrary non-collapsing equations (satisfying a certain linearity condition). With the proposed approach, it is now possible to perform automated termination proofs for many systems where this was not possible before. In other words, the power of dependency pairs can now also be used for rewriting modulo equations.
