POPL97 General Information and Call For Participation

The 24th Annual ACM SIGPLAN-SIGACT Symposium on
Principles of Programming Languages

Paris, France, January 15-17, 1997

ACM SIGPLAN and SIGACT are proud to organize POPL'97, the 24th Annual Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages. The symposium is a forum for discussion of principles, innovations, and accomplishments in the design, definition, analysis, and implementation of programming languages and systems. This year, we are pleased to bring the conference to Paris, the first European site for POPL since Munich in 1987.

In addition to the main three-day POPL'97 program on January 15-17, 1997, five one-day workshops will be held. Preceding POPL'97 on Tuesday, January 14, will be the First ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Automated Analysis of Software (AAS'97), the Second ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Continuations (CW'97), and the workshop on Logical and Operational Methods in the Analysis of Programs (LOMAPS). Then, after POPL'97 on Saturday, January 18, the Fourth International Workshop on the Foundations of Object-Oriented Languages (FOOL-4) and the First ACM SIGPLAN Work-shop on Domain-Specific Languages (DSL'97) will be held.

Together, these six meetings will attract the top researchers in the principles of programming languages, to present and discuss the latest research ideas, new advances in theoretical foundations, and reports on experience with promising applications. POPL has always been characterized by an extraordinary breadth and depth of the research topics, and this year we see this strengthened even further by the extension of POPL'97 to a full three-day program.

We sincerely look forward to your participation in POPL-97.
