PLDI 2015 : Programming Language Design and Implementation


Conference Series : Programming Language Design and Implementation

Notification Due Feb 5, 2015

Call For Papers

Call for Papers
PLDI is a premier forum for all areas of programming language research, including the design, implementation, theory, and efficient use of languages. PLDI seeks outstanding research that has broad appeal and spans the breadth of programming languages. PLDI’s emphases include innovative and creative approaches to compile-time and runtime technology, novel language designs and features, and results from implementations. Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics:

Language designs and extensions
Static and dynamic analysis of programs
Domain-specific languages and tools
Type systems and program logics
Program transformation and optimization
Checking or improving the security or correctness of programs
Memory management
Parallelism, both implicit and explicit
Performance and energy analysis, evaluation, and tools
Novel programming models
Debugging techniques and tools
Program understanding
Interaction of compilers/runtimes with underlying systems
Program synthesis
PLDI welcomes new topics.

Please note that formatting requirements for PLDI’15 will be different to previous years. Details can be found in the Instructions for Authors.

A link to the website for paper submissions will appear here closer to the submission deadline.

To enable double-blind reviewing, author names and their affiliations must be omitted from submissions, and references to related work by the authors should be in the third person (e.g., not “We build on our previous work …” but rather “We build on the work of …”). However, nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult (e.g., important background references should not be omitted or anonymized). If you have questions about the logistics for the double-blind reviewing process, please look at the double-blind reviewing FAQ.

Papers must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere as described by SIGPLAN’s Republication Policy. Submitters should also be aware of ACM’s Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism.

Evaluation Criteria
The program committee and the external review committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to the PLDI audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, and clarity. The paper must be organized so that it is easily understood by an audience with varied expertise. The paper should clearly identify what has been accomplished, why it is significant, and how it relates to previous work.

Review Process
The PLDI’15 review process will use two phases in order to balance the need for high quality reviews, the growing number of paper submissions, and the practical limits on program committee size. In the first phase, each paper will receive at least three reviews from which the PC and ERC will identify those papers most viable for publication in PLDI’15. Those papers progressing to the second phase will receive a further two reviews. Authors of papers that do not progress will be notified promptly, giving authors as much opportunity as possible to further develop their work. Each phase will have an author response mechanism, on the principle that authors should have the opportunity to respond to each review. The majority of papers will be given the opportunity for author response at the end of the first phase. Some papers may be promoted directly to the second phase without author response (authors of such papers would be notified). Authors are not required nor able to revise their submission after the initial paper submission deadline.

Artifact Evaluation Process
Authors of papers accepted papers will be invited to formally submit these supporting materials to the Artifact Evaluation process. The Artifact Evaluation process, is run by a separate committee whose task is to assess how the artifacts support the work described in the papers. This submission is voluntary and will not influence the final decision regarding the papers. Papers that go through the Artifact Evaluation process successfully will receive a seal of approval printed on the papers themselves. Additional information will be available on the PLDI AEC web page closer to the submission deadline.

Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright release.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: All accepted papers will be available in the ACM Digital Library as early as May 30, 2015. The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
