CFP: European Symposium on Programming - ESOP 2012 2012, 24 March - 1 April. Tallinn, Estonia. http://www2.in.tum.de/esop2012/
ESOP is an annual conference devoted to fundamental issues in the specification, design, analysis, and implementation of programming languages and systems. ESOP 2012 is the twenty second edition in this series and seeks contributions on all aspects of programming language research including, but not limited to, the following areas:
Programming paradigms and styles: functional programming, aspect-oriented programming, object-oriented programming, logic programming, constraint programming, extensible programming languages, domain-specific languages, biologically-inspired languages, synchronous and real-time programming languages. Methods and tools to write, reason about, and specify languages and programs: module systems, programming techniques, meta programming, type systems, logical foundations, denotational semantics, operational semantics, program verification, static analysis, testing, language-based security. Methods and tools for reasoning about programs: type systems, abstract interpretation, program verification, testing; Methods and tools for implementation: rewriting systems, program transformations, partial evaluation, experimental evaluations, virtual machines, intermediate languages, run-time environments. Concurrency and distribution: parallel programming, process algebras, concurrency theory, service-oriented computing, distributed and mobile languages.
ESOP is a member conference of the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS), which is the primary European forum for academic and industrial researchers working on topics relating to Software Science. ETAPS 2012 is the 15th joint conference in this series.
Papers must be written in English, unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere. The proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Final papers will be in the format specified by Springer-Verlag in this page.
Submissions must be in PDF format, formatted in the LNCS style and be at most 20 pages long. Additional material, that is not to be included in the final version, but may help assessing the merits of the submission - for example details of proofs - may be placed in a clearly marked appendix that is not included in the page limit. ETAPS referees are at liberty to ignore appendices, and papers must be understandable without them.
Papers can be sumitted via the following submission page:
7 October 2011 (23:59 Apria, Samoa time): Submission deadline for abstracts (strict) 14 October 2011 (23:59 Apia, Samoa time): Submission deadline for full papers (strict) 6/7 December 2011: Rebuttal phase 16 December 2011: Notification of acceptance 6 January 2012: Camera-ready versions due 24 March - 1 April, 2012: Conference
The submission deadline for papers is strict (site will close at 23:59 Samoan time). Submission of an abstract implies no obligation to submit a full version; abstracts with no corresponding full versions by the full paper deadline will be considered as withdrawn.
