POPL 2009 Important Dates
As in the past, students with an accepted paper may apply for travel fellowships from the PAC fund. However, PAC now also provides a new kind of grant, called Companion Travel Grants. These grants support travel costs for companions of SIGPLAN members with physical disabilities or small children. For details on the PAC program, see the PAC web page.
Scope of the Conference
The annual Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages is a forum for the discussion of all aspects of programming languages and systems, with emphasis on how principles underpin practice. Both theoretical and experimental papers are welcome, on topics ranging from formal frameworks to experience reports.
Submissions on a diversity of topics are sought, particularly ones that identify new research directions. POPL 2009 is not limited to topics discussed in previous symposia. Authors concerned about the appropriateness of a topic may communicate by electronic mail with the program chair prior to submission.
