The annual Symposium on Principles of Programming
Languages is a forum for the discussion of fundamental principles and important
innovations in the design, definition, analysis, transformation, implementation
and verification of programming languages, programming systems, and programming
abstractions. Both experimental and theoretical papers are welcome.
The Program Committee seeks submissions on the entire range of topics. Furthermore POPL 2007 is not limited to topics discussed at previous symposia.
POPL 2007 will include a new category of short papers and short presentations. The objective is to provide authors with an opportunity to present innovative ideas (without working out a full paper) and to get feedback from a broad audience. Short papers should therefore emphasize the novelty in their submission over others.
Finally the Program Committee reserves the right to accept long submissions in both categories, that is, as either regular papers or as short papers for short presentations. Authors of long submissions who don't wish to be considered for short presentations and short papers may indicate so during the submission process.
Due date & time: Submissions must be filed at the web site by 5:00 AM EDT (New York time) Saturday 15 July 2006. Some equivalents to this time are

Both short and long submissions should use the standard ACM SIGPLAN conference format. For detailed style guidelines, see
The page limit for a long submissions is 12 pages (including any appendices); for short submissions it is 6 pages (including any appendices). The length limits in each category are strictly enforced.
Submissions will be carried out electronically via the Web, at the URL given above. Papers must be submitted in PDF format. They must be printable on US Letter sized paper. Individuals for which this requirement is a hardship should contact the program chair at least one week before the deadline.
Submitted papers must adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy. Concurrent submissions to other journals, conferences, workshops, or similar forums of publication are not allowed. In general, each paper should explain its contributions in both general and technical terms, clearly identifying what has been accomplished, explaining why it is significant, and comparing it with previous work. Authors should strive to make the technical content of their papers understandable to a broad audience.
Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign the ACM copyright form. Proceedings will be published by ACM Press.
Students who have a paper accepted for the conference are offered SIGPLAN student membership free for one year. As members of SIGPLAN they may apply for travel fellowships from the PAC fund.
