The annual Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages is a forum for
the discussion of all aspects of programming languages and systems, with
emphasis on how principles underpin practice. Both theoretical and
experimental papers are welcome, on topics ranging from formal frameworks to
experience reports. Papers discussing new ideas and areas are most welcome,
as are high-quality expositions or elucidations of existing concepts that
are likely to yield new insights ("pearls").


The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each
submission as well as its accessibility to both experts and the general POPL
audience. All papers will be judged on significance, originality, relevance,
correctness, and clarity. Each paper should explain its contributions in
both general and technical terms, identifying what has been accomplished,
explaining why it is significant, and comparing it with previous work. More
advice on writing technical papers can be found on the SIGPLAN Author
Information page; advice on writing pearls can be found in the ICFP 2008
Call for Papers.

Submission guidelines

Authors should submit an abstract of at most 300 words and a full paper of
no more than 12 pages formatted according to the ACM proceedings format.
These 12 pages include everything (i.e., it is the total length of the
paper). The program chair will reject papers that exceed the length
requirement or are submitted late. Templates for ACM format are available
for Word Perfect, Microsoft Word, and LaTeX at
http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm (use the 9 pt
template). Submissions should be in PDF and printable on US Letter and A4
sized paper.

Submitted papers must adhere to the SIGPLAN Republication Policy. Concurrent
submissions to other conferences, workshops, journals, or similar forums of
publication are not allowed.

Following the recent history of PLDI and the lengthier history of other
conferences, POPL'12 will employ double-blind reviewing. To facilitate this,
submitted papers must adhere to two rules:

1. author names and institutions must be omitted, and
2. references to authors' own related work should be in the third person
(e.g., not "We build on our previous work ..." but rather "We build on the
work of ...").

Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission
or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult (e.g., important
background references should not be omitted or anonymized). The program
chair has put together a document answering frequently asked questions that
hopefully addresses many common concerns. When in doubt, contact the program

There is an option on the paper submission page to submit supplementary
material, e.g., a tech report including proofs, or the software used to
implement a system. This supplemental material should NOT be anonymized; it
will be made available to reviewers after the intial reviews have been
completed and author names are revealed. As usual, reviewers may choose to
use the supplemental material or not at their discretion.

The URL for paper registration and submission will be announced closer to
the submission deadline.

Author Response Period

Authors will have four days to read and respond to the reviews of their
papers before the PC meeting. Details of the response process will be
announced by e-mail a few days beforehand.
