SBLP 2022 : XXVI Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages
Call For Papers
26th Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages
SBLP 2022 is the 26th edition of the Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages. It is promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) and constitutes a forum for researchers, students, and professionals to present and discuss ideas and innovations in the design, definition, analysis, implementation, and practical use of programming languages. SBLP's first edition was in 1996. Since 2010, it has been part of CBSoft, the Brazilian Conference on Software: Theory and Practice.
The Conference is planned to be held on October 3-7, 2022, fully online.
Papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Submissions in English are encouraged considering that only accepted papers written in English will appear in the proceedings, usually indexed in the ACM Digital Library (to be confirmed). The acceptance of a paper implies the registration of at least one author in the symposium to present it. Papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. No-show of scheduled papers will result in excluding them from the proceedings.
SBLP 2022 will use a lightweight double-blind review process. The manuscripts should be submitted for review anonymously (i.e., without listing the author’s names on the paper) and references to own work should be made in the third person.
Papers must be submitted electronically (in PDF format) via the Easychair System.
The following paper categories are welcome (page limits include figures, references and appendices):
Full papers: up to 8 pages long in ACM 2-column conference format. Full papers can be further specialized, at submission time, as Student papers (i.e., as papers describing research conducted mainly by a student at any level). Student papers will be subject to the exact same reviewing process and criteria but may be entitled for an award (see below).
Short papers: up to 3 pages in the same format. Short papers can discuss new ideas which are at an early stage of development or can report partial results of on-going dissertations or theses.
Each paper can have a maximum of one extra page for references.
Active graduate and undergraduate students seeking feedback are invited to submit short papers of their original unpublished and in-progress research work. A set of selected papers, which did not get accepted as full papers, may be accepted as short papers.
Two best paper awards will be attributed, distinguishing full paper submissions of the best:
List of Topics (related but not limited to the following)
Programming paradigms and styles, scripting and domain-specific languages and support for real-time, service-oriented, multi-threaded, parallel, distributed, and quantum programming
Program generation and transformation
Formal semantics and theoretical foundations: denotational, operational, algebraic and categorical
Program analysis and verification, type systems, static analysis, and abstract interpretation
Programming language design and implementation, programming, language environments, compilation and interpretation techniques
Programming languages for the blockchain technology: design and implementation of Smart Contract languages, implementation of consensus protocols, language-based security and cryptographic primitives
A selection of the best papers appearing in the last editions of SBLP have been invited to be extended and considered for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Computer Languages (COLA), by Elsevier. We will approach COLA for a similar special issue regarding the 2022 edition of SBLP.
