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. Papers discussing new ideas and areas are most welcome, as are high-quality expositions or elucidations of existing concepts that are likely to yield new insights ("pearls").
A committee of experts will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its accessibility to both experts and the general POPL audience. All papers will be judged on significance, originality, relevance, correctness, and clarity. Each paper should explain its contributions in both general and technical terms, identifying what has been accomplished, explaining why it is significant, and comparing it with previous work. The submissions are not anonymous and should therefore include all author names, affiliations and contact information. More advice on writing technical papers can be found on the SIGPLAN author information page.
Authors should submit an abstract of at most 300 words and a full paper of no more than 12 pages (including bibliography and appendices) formatted according to the ACM proceedings format. SIGPLAN conference paper templates are available for LaTeX and Word at http://sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm (use the 9 pt template). Submissions must be in PDF. The submission deadline and length limitations are firm.
Submitted papers must adhere to the SIGPLAN Re-publication Policy and the ACM Policy on Plagiarism. Concurrent submissions to other conferences, workshops, journals, or similar forums of publication are not allowed. Submissions that do not meet these guidelines may not be considered.
The URL for submission of abstracts and papers http://popl2013.ens.fr will be opened closer to the submission deadline.
Authors will have a four-day period to read and respond to the reviews of their papers before the PC meeting. Details of the response process will be announced by email a few days beforehand.
Authors of accepted submissions are expected to transfer the copyright to the ACM and may sign a release for video of their presentation. Authors are encouraged to publish auxiliary material with their paper; they retain copyright of auxiliary material.
Students with accepted papers or students who are participating in the student session are encouraged to apply for a SIGPLAN PAC grant that will help covering travel expenses.
