ACM SIGPLAN 2000 Conference on
Programming Language Design and Implementation
Vancouver B.C., Canada, June 18-21, 2000
Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN in cooperation with ACM SIGSOFT
PLDI is a forum where researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners can exchange information on the latest practical and experimental work in the design and implementation of programming languages.
The PLDI conference seeks original papers that focus on practical issues in the design, development, implementation and use of programming languages. Emphasis is placed on novel language designs, innovative uses of compile-time and run-time technology, as well as experimental results and experiences from actual implementations.
Extended abstracts are solicited on, but not limited to, these topics
Prospective authors should submit an extended abstract of not more than 5000 words (approximately 10 pages typeset 10 pt. on 16 pt.) to the program chair by Friday, November 12, 1999. In keeping with the convention established in the last few years, the deadline is firm and no extensions will be given. Web-based electronic submission is required. Submissions should be in Postscript that is interpretable by Ghostscript and printable on USLetter and A4 sized paper. Those individuals for which this requirement is a hardship should contact the program chair. Papers that are too long or are late will be rejected by the program chair. Papers already being reviewed by another conference are not eligible; if a closely related paper has been submitted to a journal, the authors must notify the program chair.
The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to 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.
Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by January 31, 2000. Full versions of accepted papers must be formatted to ACM conventions. A camera-ready copy and electronic abstract must be received by the program chair no later than April 7, 2000. Authors of accepted papers must sign an copyright release form. Proceedings will be distributed at the conference and will appear as an issue of SIGPLAN Notices. Papers published in the proceedings are eligible for publication in refereed ACM publications at the discretion of the editors.
Proposals for co-locating workshops to be held before and after the
conference are also solicited; prospective workshop organizers should contact
the general chair.
