PLDI is a forum where researchers, developers, educators, and
practitioners exchange information on the latest practical and
experimental work in the design and implementation of programming


PLDI 2013 and co-located events will be held at the Red Lion 5th
Avenue in Seattle, Washington from June 16 to June 22.

Early registration ends May 15.

You may register directly for PLDI and associated events here:


Co-located tutorials include:

+ Scala, LMS and Delite for High-Performance DSLs and Program Generators
+ Dart: Structured Programming for the Web
+ Using LLVM for Program Analysis and Transformation
+ TouchDevelop - Cross-platform App Creation on Mobile Devices
+ Analyzing JavaScript and the Web with WALA
+ Network Programming in Frenetic

PLDI will once again feature a FIT session:

The PLDI Fun and Interesting Thoughts (FIT) session provides a venue
for new, interesting, provocative, and/or inspiring ideas. The session
is open to any idea within the purview of the field of programming
languages, broadly construed. Ideas that provide a new perspective on
the field, challenge the conventional value system, or point to new
technical or social directions for the field are especially welcome.

We anticipate that the PLDI FIT session will consist of short (5 to 10
minute) talks. Each PLDI FIT submission should consist of a short
writeup whose length is consistent with the brevity of the planned
presentation. We anticipate that one to two pages should be
sufficient. Note that it is the responsibility of the authors to
deliver a fun and interesting writeup - the members of the program
committee are under no obligation to read a writeup they do not find
fun and interesting.

Please mail submissions directly to pldifit2013 at csail.mit.edu by May 4th.

Notification of acceptance will be sent on May 18th.
