The conference aims at bringing together researchers and developers interested in the area of programming languages. The conference addresses all paradigms of programming languages: imperative, object-oriented, functional, logic, concurrent, parallel, or graphical programming languages, as well as languages to support the implementation of distributed systems and concepts for the integration of different paradigms. The first three Working Conferences on Programming Languages took place as part of the annual computer science conferences in Germany (Aachen 1997, Paderborn 1999, Ulm 2004).
Typical but not exclusive topics are:
Techniques, methods, concepts, and tools to improve the safety and reliability of programs are also of interest. The conference also welcomes contributions from enterprises.
Submitted papers must be written in English or German and should contain unpublished works. Contributions will be judged by relevance, originality, correctness, and readability. The significance should be clearly stated and compared to existing works.
It is also intended to organize a session with short presentations about unfinished projects and experience reports. Such short contributions should be clearly marked and submitted like other contributions as an extended abstract of no more than five pages.
The accepted papers will be published in the proceedings of the general conference that consists of printed proceedings that will appear in the GI-Edition Lecture Notes in Informatics (LNI) with one-page abstracts and a CD containing the full papers.
The Call for Papers is also available in ASCII format.
