(co-located with POPL 2023)
The ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Partial Evaluation and Program
Manipulation (PEPM) has a history going back to 1991 and has been
co-located with POPL every year since 2006. It originated with the
discoveries of useful automated techniques for evaluating
programs with only partial input. Over the years, the scope of PEPM
has expanded to include a variety of research areas centred around the
theme of semantics-based program manipulation — the systematic
exploitation of treating programs not only as subjects to black-box
execution but also as data structures that can be generated,
analysed, and transformed while establishing or maintaining important
In addition to the traditional PEPM topics (see below), PEPM 2023
welcomes submissions in new domains, in particular:
* Semantics based and machine-learning based program synthesis and
* Modelling, analysis, and transformation techniques for distributed
and concurrent protocols and programs, such as session types,
linear types, and contract specifications.
More generally, topics of interest for PEPM 2023 include, but are not
* Program and model manipulation techniques such as:
supercompilation, partial evaluation, fusion, on-the-fly program
adaptation, active libraries, program inversion, slicing, symbolic
execution, refactoring, decompilation, and obfuscation.
* Techniques that treat programs/models as data objects including
metaprogramming, generative programming, embedded domain-specific
languages, program synthesis by sketching and inductive
programming, staged computation, and model-driven program
generation and transformation.
* Program analysis techniques that are used to drive program/model
manipulation such as: abstract interpretation, termination
checking, binding-time analysis, constraint solving, type systems,
automated testing and test case generation.
* Application of the above techniques including case studies of
program manipulation in real-world (industrial, open-source)
projects and software development processes, descriptions of
robust tools capable of effectively handling realistic
applications, benchmarking. Examples of application domains
include legacy program understanding and transformation, DSL
implementations, visual languages and end-user programming,
scientific computing, middleware frameworks and infrastructure
needed for distributed and web-based applications, embedded and
resource-limited computation, and security.
This list of categories is not exhaustive, and we encourage
submissions describing new theories and applications related to
semantics-based program manipulation in general. If you have a
question as to whether a potential submission is within the scope of
the workshop, please contact the programme co-chairs, Edwin Brady
(ecb10 at st-andrews.ac.uk) and Jens Palsberg (palsberg at ucla.edu).
Submission categories and guidelines
Two kinds of submissions will be accepted:
* Regular Research Papers should describe new results, and will be
judged on originality, correctness, significance, and clarity.
Regular research papers must not exceed 12 pages.
* Short Papers may include tool demonstrations and presentations of
exciting if not fully polished research, and of interesting
academic, industrial, and open-source applications that are new or
unfamiliar. Short papers must not exceed 6 pages.
References and appendices are not included in page limits. Appendices
may not be read by reviewers. Both kinds of submissions should be
typeset using the two-column ‘sigplan’ sub-format of the new ‘acmart’
format available at:
and submitted electronically via HotCRP:
Reviewing will be single-blind.
Submissions are welcome from PC members (except the two co-chairs).
Accepted regular research papers will appear in formal proceedings
published by ACM, and be included in the ACM Digital Library.
Accepted short papers do not constitute formal publications and will
not appear in the proceedings.
At least one author of each accepted contribution must attend the
workshop (physically or virtually) and present the work. In the case
of tool demonstration papers, a live demonstration of the described
tool is expected.
* Paper submission deadline : **Thursday 13th October 2022 (AoE)**
* Author notification : **Thursday 10th November 2022 (AoE)**
* Workshop : **Monday 16th January 2023 to
Tuesday 17th January 2023**
Best paper award
PEPM 2023 continues the tradition of a Best Paper award. The winner will be
announced at the workshop.
