ESOP 2009 : 18th European Symposium on Programming
Conference Series : European Symposium on Programming
Call For Papers
ESOP is a member conference of the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS), which is the primary European forum for academic and industrial researchers working on topics relating to Software Science. ETAPS 2009 is the 12th joint conference in this series.
The prior conferences have been ETAPS 1998 in Lisbon, ETAPS 1999 in Amsterdam, ETAPS 2000 in Berlin, ETAPS 2001 in Genova, ETAPS 2002 in Grenoble, ETAPS 2003 in Warsaw, ETAPS 2004 in Barcelona, ETAPS 2005 in Edinburgh, ETAPS 2006 in Vienna, ETAPS 2007 in Braga, and ETAPS 2008 in Budapest.
Call for Papers
ESOP is an annual conference devoted to fundamental issues in the specification, design, analysis, and implementation of programming languages and systems. ESOP 2009 is the eighteenth edition in this series and seeks contributions on all aspects of programming language research including, but not limited to, the following areas:
* Programming paradigms and styles: functional programming, aspect-oriented programming, object-oriented programming, logic programming, constraint programming, extensible programming languages, domain-specific languages, biologically-inspired languages, synchronous and real-time programming languages.
* Methods and tools to write, reason about, and specify languages and programs: module systems, programming techniques, meta programming, type systems, logical foundations, denotational semantics, operational semantics, program verification, static analysis, testing, language-based security.
* Methods and tools for implementation: rewriting systems, program transformations, partial evaluation, experimental evaluations, virtual machines, intermediate languages, run-time environments.
* Concurrency and distribution: parallel programming, process algebras, concurrency theory, service-oriented computing, distributed and mobile languages.
What is New This Year
Rebuttal phase: Authors will be given a 60-hours period (from Saturday 22 November 11:00 Apia time to Monday 24 November 23:00 Apia time) to read and respond to the reviews of their papers before the PC meeting. Rebuttals will be at most 500 words long.
Papers must be written in English, unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. The proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Final papers will be in the format specified by Springer-Verlag in this page.
Submissions must be in PDF format, formatted in the LNCS style and be at most 15 pages long. Additional material, that is not to be included in the final version, but may help assessing the merits of the submission, must be placed in a separate PDF file and submitted as an attachment: referees will decide whether to use it or not. Submissions that do not adhere to these guidelines will be rejected immediately.
* Thursday 2 October 2008, 23:00 Apia time: Abstract submission;
* Thursday 9 October 2008, 23:00 Apia time: Paper submission;
* Saturday 22 November 2008, 11:00 Apia time: Start of Author Response Period;
* Friday 12 December 2008: Author notification;
* Sunday 4 January 2009: Camera-ready paper versions due
Submission deadlines are strict (site will close at 23:00 Apia time, that is at noon on Friday in Paris). Submission of an abstract implies no obligation to submit a full version; abstracts with no corresponding full versions by the full paper deadline will be considered as withdrawn.
Jean-Marc Eber, Lexifi, CEO and Founder.
Prior to founding LexiFi in 2000, Mr. Eber worked for ten years at Société Générale where he served most recently as Global Head of Quantitative Research in the Capital Markets Division. In this capacity, Mr. Eber was responsible for the design and implementation of software tools and mathematical models for trading complex derivative products. Mr. Eber is a regular speaker at financial engineering conferences and has published numerous papers on financial risk management and on the application of programming language theory to financial trading and risk management. Mr. Eber holds an M.S. in econometrics and an M.S. in mathematics from the University of Strasbourg and a Ph.D. in mathematical economics from the University of Bonn.
