APLAS aims at stimulating programming language research by providing a
forum for the presentation of latest results and the exchange of ideas in
topics concerned with programming languages and systems. APLAS is based in
Asia, but is an international forum that serves the worldwide programming
language community.

APLAS is sponsored by the Asian Association for Foundation of Software
(AAFS) founded by Asian researchers in cooperation with many researchers
from Europe and the USA. The past APLAS symposiums were successfully held
in Kenting ('11), Shanghai ('10), Seoul ('09), Bangalore ('08), Singapore
('07), Sydney ('06), Tsukuba ('05), Taipei ('04) and Beijing ('03) after
three informal workshops.  Proceedings of the past symposiums were
published in Springer-Verlag's LNCS.

**The 2012 conference will be held at Kyoto, Japan.**


The symposium is devoted to both foundational and practical 
issues in programming languages and systems. Papers are solicited 
on, but not limited to, the following topics:

+ semantics, logics, foundational theory;
+ design of languages and foundational calculi;
+ domain-specific languages;
+ type systems;
+ compilers, interpreters, abstract machines;
+ program derivation, synthesis and transformation;
+ program analysis, constraints, verification, model-checking;
+ software security;
+ concurrency, parallelism;
+ tools for programming, verification, implementation. 

APLAS 2012 is not limited to topics discussed in previous
symposiums. Papers identifying future directions of 
programming and those addressing the rapid changes of the 
underlying computing platforms are especially welcome. 
Demonstration of systems and tools in the scope of APLAS are 
welcome to the System and Tool presentations category. 
Authors concerned about the appropriateness of a topic are
welcome to consult with Program Chair prior to submission.

Submission Information

We solicit submissions in two categories:

(a) *Regular research papers*: describing original research results,
including tool development and case studies, from a perspective of
scientific research. Regular research papers should not exceed 16
pages in the Springer LNCS format, including bibliography and
figures. They should clearly identify what has been accomplished and
why it is significant. Submissions will be judged on the basis of
significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity. In
case of lack of space, proofs, experimental results, or any
information supporting the technical results of the paper could be
provided as Appendix or a link to a web page.

(b) *System and Tool presentations*: describing systems or tools that support
theory, program construction, reasoning, and/or program execution in the
scope of APLAS. Unlike presentations of regular research papers,
presentation of accepted papers in this category is expected to be centered
around a demonstration. The paper and the demonstration should identify the
novelties of the tools and use motivating examples. System and Tool papers
should not exceed 8 pages in the Springer LNCS format, including
bibliography and figures. Submissions will be judged based on both the
papers and the systems or tools as described in the papers. It is highly
desirable that the tools are available on the web.

Papers should be submitted electronically via the submission web page


Acceptable formats are PostScript or PDF, viewable by Ghostview or Acrobat
Reader. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not submitted for
publication elsewhere. Papers must be written in English. The
proceedings will be published as a volume in Springer-Verlag's 
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Accepted papers must 
be presented at the conference.
