Technical Track on "Programming Languages"

SAC '16
Over the past 30 years, the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing has 
become a primary forum for applied computer scientists, computer 
engineers, software engineers, and application developers from around 
the world to interact and present their work. SAC 2016 is sponsored by 
the ACM Special Interest Group on Applied Computing (SIGAPP). For 
additional information, please check the SAC web page:

A technical track on Programming Languages will be held at SAC'16. It 
will be a forum for engineers, researchers and practitioners throughout 
the world to share technical ideas and experiences relating to 
implementation and application of programming languages. Original papers 
and experience reports are invited in all areas of programming 
languages. Major topics of interest include but are not limited to the 
-     Compiling Techniques,
-     Domain-Specific Languages,
-     Formal Semantics and Syntax,
-     Garbage Collection,
-     Language Design and Implementation,
-     Languages for Modeling,
-     Model-Driven Development and Model Transformation,
-     New Programming Language Ideas and Concepts,
-     New Programming Paradigms,
-     Practical Experiences with Programming Languages,
-     Program Analysis and Verification,
-     Program Generation and Transformation,
-     Programming Languages from All Paradigms (Agent-Oriented, 
Aspect-Oriented, Functional, Logic, Object-Oriented, etc.),
-     Visual Programming Languages.


Paper submissions must be original, unpublished work. Submissions should 
be in electronic format, via the link provided at SAC web page: 
Author(s) name(s) and address(es) must not appear in the body of the 
paper, and self-reference should be avoided and made in the third 
person. Submitted papers will undergo a blind review process. Authors of 
accepted papers should submit an editorial revision of their papers that 
fits within six two-column pages (an extra two pages, to a total of 
eight pages, may be available at a charge). Please comply with this page 
limitation already at submission time. For accepted papers the paper 
registration is required, allowing the inclusion of the paper/poster in 
the conference proceedings. An author or a proxy attending SAC MUST 
present the paper. This is a requirement for the paper/poster to be 
included in the ACM/IEEE digital library. No-show of scheduled papers 
and posters will result in excluding them from the ACM/IEEE digital 
library. A set of selected papers, which did not get accepted as full 
papers, will be accepted as poster papers and will be published as 
extended 3-page abstracts (an extra page, to a total of four pages, may 
be available at a charge)  in the symposium proceedings. After the 
conference, selected accepted papers will be invited to a special issue 
of the Computer Languages, Systems and Structures journal 

SAC 2016 will also hold a Student Research Competition (SRC). To enter 
this in the area of programming languages, please submit via the link at 
SAC web page: http://www.acm.org/conferences/sac/sac2016/.
