                           CALL FOR PAPERS

                             APLAS 2010

     Eighth Asian Symposium on Programming Languages and Systems

                           Shanghai, China

                     November 28-December 1, 2010





  APLAS aims at stimulating programming language research by providing a

  forum for the presentation of latest results and the exchange of ideas

  in topics concerned with programming languages and systems.  APLAS is

  based in Asia, but is an international forum that serves the worldwide

  programming language community.


  APLAS is sponsored by the Asian Association for Foundation of Software

  (AAFS) founded by Asian researchers in cooperation with many

  researchers from Europe and the USA.  The past APLAS symposiums were

  successfully held in Seoul ('09), Bangalore ('08), Singapore ('07),

  Sydney ('06), Tsukuba ('05), Taipei ('04) and Beijing ('03) after

  three informal workshops held in Shanghai ('02), Daejeon ('01) and

  Singapore ('00).  Proceedings of the past symposiums were published in

  Springer-Verlag's LNCS 2895, 3302, 3780, 4279, 4807, 5356, and 5904.


  The 2010 edition will be held at Shanghai Jiao Tong University, China.




  The symposium is devoted to both foundational and practical issues in

  programming languages and systems.  Papers are solicited on, but not

  limited to, the following topics:


    * semantics, logics, foundational theory;

    * design of languages and foundational calculi;

    * type systems;

    * compilers, interpreters, abstract machines;

    * program derivation, analysis, transformation;

    * software security, safety, verification;

    * concurrency, constraints, domain-specific languages;

    * tools for programming, verification, implementation.


  APLAS 2010 is not limited to topics discussed in previous symposiums.

  Papers identifying future directions of programming and those

  addressing the rapid changes of the underlying computing platforms are

  especially welcome.  Demonstration of systems and tools in the scope

  of APLAS are welcome to the System and Tool presentations category.

  Authors concerned about the appropriateness of a topic are welcome to

  consult with Program Chair prior to submission.





  We solicit submissions in two categories:


  1. REGULAR RESEARCH PAPERS, describing original research results,

     including tool development and case studies, from a perspective of

     scientific research.  Regular research papers should not exceed 16

     pages in the Springer LNCS format, including bibliography and

     figures.  They should clearly identify what has been accomplished

     and why it is significant.  Submissions will be judged on the basis

     of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity.

     In case of lack of space, proofs, experimental results, or any

     information supporting the technical results of the paper could be

     provided as Appendix or a link to a web page.


  2. SYSTEM AND TOOL PRESENTATIONS, describing systems or tools that

     support theory, program construction, reasoning, and/or program

     execution in the scope of APLAS.  Unlike presentations of regular

     research papers, presentation of accepted papers in this category

     is expected to be centered around a demonstration.  The paper and

     the demonstration should identify the novelties of the tools and

     use motivating examples.  System and Tool presentations papers

     should not exceed 8 pages in the Springer LNCS format, including

     bibliography and figures.  Submissions will be judged based on both

     the papers and the systems or tools as described in the papers.  It

     is highly desirable that the tools are available on the web.


  Papers should be submitted electronically via the submission web page

  at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=aplas2010.  Acceptable

  formats are PostScript or PDF, viewable by Ghostview or Acrobat

  Reader.  Submitted papers must be unpublished and not submitted for

  publication elsewhere.  Papers must be written in English.  The

  proceedings are planned to be published as a volume in

  Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.  Accepted

  papers must be presented at the conference.
