Call for Papers
ACM SIGPLAN'96 Conference on
Programming Language Design and Implementation
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, May 21-24, 1996
PLDI'96 will again provide a forum for researchers and developers to
hear about the latest practical and experimental work in the design
and implementation of programming languages and compilers. Emphasis will
be placed on experimental results and experience with the languages and
techniques described. The conference seeks original papers relevant to
practical issues concerning the design, development, implementation, and
use of programming languages (in contrast to the POPL symposium, which
typically seeks papers on foundations).
Conference topics include:
Submission of an extended abstract may be in either electronic or hard-copy form.
Electronic submissions must be in Postscript.
Submissions may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
An interactive submission mechanism, which is recommended, is described in
the PLDI'96 homepage at
authors may submit 13 double-sided copies of an extended abstract to
the program chair; persons without access to photocopiers may submit a
- compiler construction
- design and use of languages
- storage management and runtime systems
- benchmarks and assessment
- optimizations for scalar & parallel architectures
- program analysis
- debugging and programming environments
- incremental, interpretive and interactive methods
- intermediate representations
- implementation of non-traditional languages
The first sheet of the abstract - not the cover letter
- must include the phone number and street and Internet addresses for
the corresponding author. Abstracts must not exceed 5000 words, which
is approximately 10 pages typeset 10-point on 16-point spacing.
Excessively long abstracts will be rejected outright by the program
chair. Papers awaiting acceptance by another conference are ineligible
for PLDI'96; if a closely related paper has been submitted to a
journal, the authors must notify the program chair.
The abstract must be organized so that it is easily understood by an
audience with varied expertise. The abstract should clearly identify
what has been accomplished, why it is significant, and how it compares
with previous work. Abstracts will be judged on clarity, significance,
relevance, correctness, and originality.
October 20, 1995 is the strict deadline
for receipt of submissions.
Abstracts received after this date - in any form - will most likely be rejected.
Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by
January 12, 1996 . Full versions of the accepted papers
must be formatted according to ACM conventions, and a camera-ready copy must be
received by the program chair no later than February 8, 1996 .
Authors of accepted papers must sign an ACM copyright release form.
Proceedings will be distributed at the conference and will appear as an
issue of SIGPLAN Notices . All papers published in the proceedings
are eligible for publication in refereed ACM publications at the
discretion of the editors.
The conference will run two and a half days; it will be preceded by
one day of tutorials on May 21.
Announcement of tutorial topics will be provided
in the advance program for the conference and on the Internet
