The annual Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages is a forum for
the discussion of fundamental principles and important innovations in the
design, definition, analysis, transformation, implementation and
verification of programming languages, programming systems, and programming
abstractions. Both experimental and theoretical papers on principles and
innovations are welcome, ranging from formal frameworks to reports on
practical experiences.

Submissions on a diversity of topics are sought, particularly ones that
identify new research directions. POPL 2006 is not limited to topics
discussed in previous symposia. Authors concerned about the appropriateness
of a topic may communicate by electronic mail with the program chair prior
to submission.

Authors should submit a 100-200 word abstract and a full paper by 23:00
Apia, Samoa Time on Monday, 18 July, 2005. Submissions should be no more
than 12 pages (including bibliography) in standard ACM SIGPLAN conference
format: two columns, nine-point font on a ten-point baseline, with pages
20pc (3.33in) wide and 54pc (9in) tall, with a column gutter of 2pc
(0.33in). Detailed formatting guidelines are available at
http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm, along with formatting
templates or style files for LaTeX. You don't need to include categories,
keywords, etc., though you are welcome to do so. Also, note that the ACM
copyright notice is not required of submissions, only of accepted papers.

Authors wishing to supply additional material to the reviewers beyond the
12-page limit can do so in clearly marked appendices, on the understanding
that reviewers are not required to read the appendices. Submissions that do
not meet these guidelines will not be considered. The submission deadline
and length limitations are firm.

Submissions will be carried out electronically via the Web, at the URL given
above. Papers must be submitted in either PDF format or as PostScript
documents that are interpretable by Ghostscript.  They must be printable on
US Letter sized paper. Individuals for which this requirement is a hardship
should contact the program chair at least one week before the deadline.

Submitted papers must adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy.  Each paper
should explain its contributions in both general and technical terms,
clearly identifying what has been accomplished, explaining why it is
significant, and comparing it with previous work. Authors should strive to
make the technical content of their papers understandable to a broad

Authors will be given a 2-day period (23:00 12 Sept. to 23:00 14 Sept. 2005
Samoa time) to read and respond to the reviews for their papers before the
PC meeting.  Authors of submitted papers will receive more details from the
submission site.

Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign the ACM copyright form.
Proceedings will be published by ACM Press.
