======= PEPM 2014 ===========
ACM SIGPLAN 2014 WORKSHOP ON PARTIAL EVALUATION AND PROGRAM MANIPULATION
Mon-Tue, January 20-21, 2014
San Diego, California, USA
co-located with POPL'14
Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN
The PEPM Symposium/Workshop series aims at bringing together researchers and
practitioners working in the areas of program manipulation, partial evaluation,
and program generation. PEPM focuses on techniques, theory, tools, and
applications of analysis and manipulation of programs.
The 2014 PEPM workshop will be based on a broad interpretation of semantics-based
program manipulation and continue last years' successful effort to expand the
scope of PEPM significantly beyond the traditionally covered areas of partial
evaluation and specialization and include practical applications of program
transformations such as refactoring tools, and practical implementation techniques
such as rule-based transformation systems. In addition, the scope of PEPM covers
manipulation and transformations of program and system representations such as
structural and semantic models that occur in the context of model-driven
development. In order to reach out to practitioners, a separate category of tool
demonstration papers will be solicited.
Topics of interest for PEPM'14 include, but are not limited to:
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,
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.
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.
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, resource-limited computation, and security.
To maintain the dynamic and interactive nature of PEPM, we will continue the
category of `short papers' for tool demonstrations and for presentations of
exciting if not fully polished research, and of interesting academic, industrial
and open-source applications that are new or unfamiliar.
Student attendants with accepted papers can apply for a SIGPLAN PAC grant to
help cover travel expenses and other support. PAC also offers other support,
such as for child-care expenses during the meeting or for travel costs for
companions of SIGPLAN members with physical disabilities, as well as for travel
from locations outside of North America and Europe. For details on the PAC
programme, see its web page.
All accepted papers, short papers included, will appear in formal proceedings
published by ACM Press. In addition to printed proceedings, accepted papers will
be included in the ACM Digital Library. A special issue for Science of Computer
Programming is planned with recommended papers from PEPM'14.
PEPM has also established a Best Paper award. The winner will be announced at
SUBMISSION CATEGORIES AND GUIDELINES
Regular Research Papers must not exceed 12 pages in ACM Proceedings style
(including appendix). Tool demonstration papers and short papers must not
exceed 6 pages in ACM Proceedings style (including appendix). At least one
author of each accepted contribution must attend the workshop and present the
work. In the case of tool demonstration papers, a live demonstration of the
described tool is expected. Suggested topics, evaluation criteria, and writing
guidelines for both research and tool demonstration papers will be made available
on the PEPM'14 Web-site. Papers should be submitted electronically via the
workshop web site.
Authors using LaTeX to prepare their submissions should use the new improved
SIGPLAN proceedings style (sigplanconf.cls, 9pt template).
