Please consider contributing to this main PL conference in Brazil, an event with a long tradition to bring international researchers together. All topics within the scope of TYPES are welcome. The deadline has been extended, with April 22 for the abstract, and April 29 for the full paper.

Best regards,
Fernando and David


The Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages is a well-established symposium which provides a venue for researchers and practitioners interested in the fundamental principles and innovations in the design and implementation of programming languages and systems. SBLP 2016 will be held in Maringa, in the Southern region of Brazil, and will be the 20th edition of the symposium. SBLP is part of the 7th edition of CBSoft, the Brazilian Congress on Software: Theory and Practice. More information is available athttp://cbsoft.org/sblp2016/xx-brazilian-symposium-on-programming-languages.


Abstract submission: April 22nd 2016

Paper submission: April 29th 2016

Author notification: June 10th 2016

Camera ready deadline: June 24th 2016

Symposium dates: September 22nd and 23rd

Authors are invited to submit original research on any relevant topic which can be either in the form of regular or short papers.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- Program generation and transformation, including domain-specific languages, and model-driven development in the context of programming languages.
- Programming paradigms and styles, including functional, object-oriented, aspect-oriented, scripting languages, real-time, service-oriented, multithreaded, parallel, and distributed programming.
- Formal semantics and theoretical foundations, including denotational, operational, algebraic, and categorical.
- Program analysis and verification, including type systems, static analysis, and abstract interpretation.
- Programming language design and implementation, including new programming models, programming language environments, compilation, and interpretation techniques.


All submissions will be peer-reviewed and judged on the basis of its originality, contribution to the field, technical and presentation quality, and relevance to the symposium. Contributions should be written in Portuguese or English.

Papers should fall into one of two different categories: regular papers, which can be up to 15 pages long in LNCS format, or short papers, with up to 6 pages in LNCS format. Short papers can discuss new ideas which are at an early stage of development and which have not yet been thoroughly evaluated. We encourage the submission of short papers reporting partial results of on-going master dissertations or doctoral theses.

Accepted papers written in English will be published in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), by Springer. Both regular and short papers must be prepared using the LNCS format, available athttp://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0.

Papers must be submitted electronically (in PDF format) via the Easychair System:http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sblp2016.

As in previous editions, after the conference, authors of selected regular papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to be considered for publication in a journal special issue. Since 2009, selected papers of each SBPL edition are being published in a special issue of Science of Computer Programming, by Elsevier.
