WAPL 2019
7th Workshop on Advances in Programming Languages

Organized within the framework of FedCSIS,
the Federated Conference on Computer Science & Information Systems

Leipzig, Germany, 1-4 September, 2019



Programming languages are programmers' most basic tools. With
appropriate programming languages one can drastically reduce
the cost of building new applications as well as maintaining
existing ones. In the last decades there have been many advances
in programming languages technology in traditional programming
paradigms such as functional, logic, and object-oriented programming,
as well as the development of new paradigms such as aspect-oriented
programming. The main driving force was and will be to better express
programmers' ideas. Therefore, research in programming languages is
an endless activity and the core of computer science. New language
features, new programming paradigms, and better compile-time
and run-time mechanisms can be foreseen in the future.

The aim of this event is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and
experience in topics concerned with programming languages and systems.
Original papers and implementation reports are invited in all areas of
programming languages. Major topics of interest include but are not
limited to the following:

+ Automata theory and applications
+ Compiling techniques
+ Context-oriented programming languages to specify dynamic adaptations
+ Domain-specific languages
+ Formal semantics and syntax
+ Generative and generic programming
+ Grammarware and grammar based systems
+ Green computing
+ Knowledge engineering languages
+ Languages and tools for trustworthy computing
+ Language theory and applications
+ Language concepts, design and implementation
+ Markup languages (XML)
+ Metamodeling and modeling languages
+ Model-driven engineering languages and systems
+ Practical experiences with programming languages
+ Program analysis, optimization and verification
+ Program generation and transformation
+ Programming paradigms (aspect-oriented, functional, logic, object-oriented, etc.)
+ Programming tools and environments
+ Proof theory for programs
+ Specification languages
+ Teaching programming
+ Type systems
+ Virtual machines and just-in-time compilation
+ Visual programming languages

WAPL'2019 is integrated in FedCSIS 2019.

Deadline for Position Papers: June 04, 2019, 23:59:59 pm HST (no extensions)
(; FedCSIS IEEE conference number: #45574)

KEY FACTS: publication: IEEE event (multiple units); 26 events in 5 focal
areas; conference fee covers lunches and 3 social events; Leipzig -
historical town in Eastern Germany, place where J.S. Bach spent most of his
life / professional career.

The FedCSIS 2019 Federated Conference invites submissions of POSITION
PAPERS to its respective events. Position papers must not exceed 8 pages
and they should relate to an ongoing research or experience. Position
papers will be presented by the authors alongside regular papers. Position
papers may be also submitted as DEMO PAPERS and presented as demonstrations
of software tools and products. They should describe non-for-profit
software tools in a prototype-, alpha-, or beta-version.


- EMERGING RESEARCH PAPERS present preliminary research results from
work-in-progress based on sound scientific approach but presenting work not
completely validated as yet. They must describe precisely the research
problem and its rationale. They must also define the intended future work
including the expected benefits from solution to the tackled problem.

- CHALLENGE PAPERS propose and describe research challenges in theory or
practice of computer science and information systems. The papers in this
category must be based on deep understanding of existing research or
industrial problems and should be defining new promising research


Position papers will be published as a Volume of the Annals of Computer
Science and Information Systems series (, with an
ISBN, ISSN and DOI numbers. The papers will be submitted for indexing to
DBLP Computer Science Bibliography and Google Scholar. The Annals-CSIS
volume will NOT be placed in the IEEE Digital Library and will NOT be
submitted to Clarivate Analytics Web of Science.

Authors should submit a position paper in English, carefully checked for
correct grammar and spelling, using the on-line submission procedure. The
guidelines for paper formatting provided at the conference website ought to
be used for all submitted papers. The required submission format is the
same as the camera-ready format. Please check, and carefully follow, the
instructions and templates provided. Papers that are out of the conference
scope of the selected event, or that contain any form of (self)plagiarism
will be rejected without reviews. All position papers will be refereed
before inclusion in the conference program.


Position paper submission (strict deadline): June 4, 2019
Author notification: June 25, 2019
Final paper submission and registration: July 10, 2019
Final deadline for discounted fee: August 1, 2019
Conference date: September 1-4, 2019
