Call For Papers

Call for Papers - XXIV Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages (SBLP 2020)

SBLP 2020 was scheduled to be held in Natal (Brazil), but due to the COVID-19
circumstances the event was postponed to October and it will be held online.

SBLP 2020, October 19-23, 2020
Submission link:

SBLP 2020 is the 24th 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 is part of CBSoft,
the Brazilian Conference on Software: Theory and Practice.

Submission Guidelines

Papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Submissions in
English are encouraged because the proceedings will be indexed
in the ACM Digital Library. The acceptance of a paper implies
that at least one of its authors will register for the symposium
to present it. Papers must be original and not simultaneously
submitted to another journal or conference.

SBLP 2020 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 third person.
Authors with a conflict of interest with a PC member should
fill the following form:

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, available at

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.

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, and distributed 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


SBLP proceedings will be published in ACM's digital library.
As in previous editions, authors of selected regular papers will be
invited to submit an extended version of their work to be considered
for publication in a journal's special issue. Since 2009, selected
papers of each SBLP edition are being published in a special issue
of Science of Computer Programming, by Elsevier.

Important dates

Abstract submission: 28 June, 2020
Paper submission: 5 July, 2020
Author notification: 21 August, 2020
Camera ready deadline: 6 September 2020
