Call for Papers for 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  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.
