                         PLAN-X 2004
           Programming Language Technologies for XML
              A workshop colocated with POPL 2004

Aims and Scope

The workshop aims at providing a meeting ground for researchers from the XML, 
programming language, and database communities. XML is already a de-facto 
industry standard for data exchange, it has from an early stage been embraced 
by database researchers, and it is gaining increasing interest from programming
language researchers.

At this workshop we hope to present recent results, identify new challenges, 
and inspire the programming language community to focus on XML.

The focus of the workshop is on methods, tools, and theories for processing 
XML. Example topics include (but are not limited to) XML parsing, XML type 
system and schemas, analysis and implementation of technologies such as XPath, 
XSLT, and XQuery, and integration of XML in both general-purpose and 
domain-specific programming languages.


There will be no formal proceedings. Informal proceedings will be distributed at 
the workshop. Thus, accepted material may be published elsewhere at a later 

Important Dates

    * Paper submission deadline: 29 September 2003
    * Notification of acceptance: 19 November 2003
    * Final papers due: 7 December 2003
    * Workshop: 13 January 2004 


We solicit submissions on original research not previously published or 
currently submitted for publication elsewhere. We request extended abstracts 
not exceeding 5000 words (approximately 10 pages), but shorter extended 
abstracts (e.g. 2000 words) are often sufficient. Submitted documents should 
be in screen-readable PDF format.
