# Call for Nominations: Editor-in-Chief, Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages

The term of the current Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages (PACMPL) is coming to an end, and the ACM Publications Board has set up a nominating committee to assist the Board in selecting the next EiC. PACMPL is a Gold Open Access journal publishing research on all aspects of programming languages, from design to implementation and from mathematical formalisms to empirical studies. The journal operates in close collaboration with the Special Interest Group on Programming Languages (SIGPLAN) and is committed to making high-quality peer-reviewed scientific research in programming languages free of restrictions on both access and use.

Nominations, including self nominations, are invited for a three-year term as PACMPL EiC, beginning on November 15, 2022. The EiC appointment may be renewed at most one time. This is an entirely voluntary, unpaid position. Appointed by the ACM Publications Board, Editors-in-Chief (EiCs) of ACM journals are delegated full responsibility for the editorial management of the journal consistent with the journal's charter and general ACM policies. The appointed EiC is assisted by the PACMPL Advisory Board (AB), which is consulted about issues such as publication policies, addition of new issues, interaction with venues, format of PACMPL calls for papers, etc. The AB also selects the new EiC. A complete list of responsibilities is found in the ACM Volunteer Editors Position Descriptions <https://urldefense.com/v3/__http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/position_descriptions__;!!IBzWLUs!UAE1oZWl5fMqg-liwf1gmCA-ynqFGGHDhpkI8e6lNJu-0sshSkEwae-c58GulPEqahCLsjDZZFTaOR9T1LhogbXGCIiMoR19TdoDaw$ >.
