Scope & Paper Categories

The annual Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages is a forum
for the discussion of fundamental principles and important innovations
in the design, definition, analysis, transformation, implementation
and verification of programming languages, programming systems, and
programming abstractions. Both experimental and theoretical papers are

The Program Committee seeks submissions on the entire range of
topics. Furthermore POPL 2007 is not limited to topics discussed at
previous symposia.

POPL 2007 will include a new category of short papers and short
presentations.  The objective is to provide authors with an
opportunity to present innovative ideas (without working out a full
paper) and to get feedback from a broad audience. Short papers should
therefore emphasize the novelty in their submission over others.

Finally the Program Committee reserves the right to accept long
submissions in both categories, that is, as either regular papers or
as short papers for short presentations. Authors of long submissions
who don't wish to be considered for short presentations and short
papers may indicate so during the submission process.

Submission guidelines

Due date & time: Submissions must be filed at the web site by 5:00 AM
New York time 15 July 2006.

Submission URL: Check the main POPL 2007 website.

Both short and long submissions should use the standard ACM SIGPLAN
conference format.  For detailed style guidelines, see


The page limit for a long submissions is 12 pages; for short
submissions it is 6 pages. The length limits in each category are
strictly enforced.

Submissions will be carried out electronically via the Web, at the URL
given above. Papers must be submitted in PDF format.  They must be
printable on US Letter sized paper. Individuals for which this
requirement is a hardship should contact the program chair at least
one week before the deadline.

Submitted papers must adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy.
Concurrent submissions to other journals, conferences, workshops, or
similar forums of publication are not allowed. In general, each paper
should explain its contributions in both general and technical terms,
clearly identifying what has been accomplished, explaining why it is
significant, and comparing it with previous work. Authors should
strive to make the technical content of their papers understandable to
a broad audience.

Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign the ACM copyright
form.  Proceedings will be published by ACM Press.

Student Attendees

Students who have a paper accepted for the conference are offered
SIGPLAN student membership free for one year. As members of SIGPLAN
they may apply for travel fellowships from the PAC fund.
