 CFP: PLDI'97 - ACM Conf. on Prog. Lang. Design and Implementation

                             CALL FOR PAPERS

                       ACM SIGPLAN 1997 Conference on
               Programming Language Design and Implementation

                     Las Vegas, Nevada, 15-18 June 1997

PLDI'97 provides a forum for researchers, developers, and practitioners to
hear about, discuss, and generally interact concerning the latest practical
and experimental work in the design and implementation of programming
languages. The conference seeks original papers that focus on practical
issues concerning programming languages, in contrast to the POPL symposium,
which typically seeks papers on foundations. Emphasis is placed on exciting
new directions, on language design, and on experimental results and
experience derived from the design and implementation techniques presented.

Topics of interest include:

   * Implementation of programming languages
        o compiler construction
        o program analysis
        o optimizations for traditional & novel architectures
        o intermediate representations
        o storage management and runtime systems
        o implementation of non-traditional languages
        o incremental, interpretive, and interactive methods
   * Evaluation of aspects of programming languages and their environments
        o benchmarks and assessment
        o experimental results on usability of languages/environments
        o experimental results on performance of languages/environments
        o debugging and related support
   * New directions in programming languages
        o design of new programming language and environmental features
        o visual programming language design, implementation, and use
        o end-user programming language design, implementation, and use
        o programming language issues for mobile platforms and the
          World-Wide Web

Submission Procedure and Deadlines

Each submission method described below has its own strict deadline: late
abstracts will most likely be rejected by the program chair. Receipt of a
submission will be acknowledge immediately to the contact author, who is
ultimately responsible for verifying arrival of the abstract to the program

  1. The preferred method for submission is the interactive method described
     in the PLDI '97 homepage. Submissions by this method are due by 5 PM
     CST on Friday, 8 November 1996.
  2. Alternatively, ghostview-readable postscript may be electronically

     PM CST on Friday, 8 November 1996.
  3. Where the above methods are infeasible, authors may submit 15
     double-sided copies of an extended abstract to the program chair;
     persons without access to photocopiers may submit a single copy.
     Submissions by this method must be sent by airmail and postmarked (not
     metered) on or before Friday, 1 November 1996.

The first sheet of the abstract - not the cover letter - must include the
phone number and street and Internet addresses for the corresponding author.
Abstracts must not exceed 5000 words, which is approximately 10 pages
typeset 10-point on 16-point spacing. Excessively long abstracts will be
rejected outright by the program chair. Papers awaiting acceptance by
another conference are ineligible for this conference; if a closely related
paper has been submitted to a journal, the authors must notify the program

Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by 20 January 1997. Full
versions of the accepted papers must be formatted according to ACM
conventions, and a camera-ready copy and electronic abstract must be
received by the program chair no later than 3 March 1997. Authors of
accepted papers must sign an ACM copyright release form. Proceedings will be
distributed at the conference and will appear as an issue of SIGPLAN
Notices. All papers published in the proceedings are eligible for
publication in refereed ACM publications at the discretion of the editors.

Submission Evaluation

The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of a
submission as well as its general accessibility by the PLDI audience.
Abstracts will be judged on clarity, significance, relevance, correctness,
and originality. The abstract must be organized so that it is easily
understood by an audience with varied expertise. The abstract should clearly
identify what has been accomplished, why it is significant, and how it
compares with previous work.

The conference will run two and a half days; it will be preceded by one day
of tutorials on Sunday, 15 June. Announcement of tutorial topics will be
provided in the advance program for the conference and on the Internet
newsgroup comp.lang.sigplan. Information is also available on the Wide World
Web at http://www.*-*-*.com/
