SBLP 2018 is the 22nd edition of the Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages. It is promoted by the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) and constitutes a forum for researchers, students and professionals to present and discuss ideas and innovations in the design, definition, analysis, implementation and practical use of programming languages.
SBLP's first edition was in 1996. Since 2010, it is part of CBSoft, the Brazilian Conference on Software: Theory and Practice (http://cbsoft.org/cbsoft2018/).
Papers can be written in Portuguese or English. Submission in English is strongly encouraged since the symposium proceedings are indexed in the ACM Digital Library. The acceptance of a paper implies that at least one of its authors will register for the symposium to present it. Papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.
Short papers: up to 3 pages in the same format, can discuss new ideas which are at an early stage of development or can report partial results of on-going dissertations or theses.
List of Topics (related but not limited to the following) ________________________________________________________________________________
• Programming paradigms and styles, scripting and domain-specific languages and support for real-time, service-oriented, multi-threaded, parallel, and distributed programming • Program generation and transformation • Formal semantics and theoretical foundations: denotational, operational, algebraic and categorical • Program analysis and verification, type systems, static analysis and abstract interpretation • Programming language design and implementation, programming language environments, compilation and interpretation techniques
SBLP proceedings will be published in ACM's digital library. As in previous editions, after the conference authors of selected regular papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to be considered for publication in a journal's special issue. Since 2009, selected papers of each SBLP edition are being published in a special issue of Science of Computer Programming, by Elsevier.
