                                                      Call for Papers
                      The 22nd Annual ACM SIGPLAN-SIGACT Symposium on
                                  Principles Of Programming Languages

                                            San Francisco, California
                                                  January 23-25, 1995

The twenty-second symposium on Principles of Programming Languages
will provide a forum for discussion of principles, innovations, and
accomplishments in the design, definition, analysis, and implementa-
tion of programming languages and systems. Reports on experiences
with the application or use of such principles and innovations are
encouraged. Papers presented at the symposium must describe work that
has not previously been published or presented in any major or widely
disseminated forum.

The program committee welcomes papers on a diversity of topics, par-
ticularly those that pioneer new directions. The symposium is not
limited to topics discussed in previous symposia nor to formal ap-
proaches. Authors concerned about the appropriateness of a topic may
consult with the program chair prior to submission.

Authors should submit 14 copies (printed double-sided if possible) of
a technical summary of a prospective paper to the program chair. The
length of the summary must not exceed 5000 words, excluding bibliogra-
phy and figures. The summary should be formatted single-column with a
font size no smaller than 11pt, normal interline spacing, and at least
one-inch margins. Thus, most summaries should fit comfortably within
12 pages. The program chair will either reject or arbitrarily trun-
cate all excessively long summaries.

The summary should explain the contribution of the paper, both in gen-
eral and in technical terms. It is important to identify what has been
accomplished, to explain why it is significant, and to compare with
previous work. Papers will be judged on originality, significance,
correctness, and clarity. Authors should make every effort to make the
technical content of their papers understandable to a broad audience.
Authors are strongly encouraged to read the specific suggestions for
writing summaries, available in a file called suggestions which re-
sides in a directory established for conference-related announcements:
This information is also available on the world-wide web via Mosaic:

Submissions must be received by July 22, 1994. They should include a
return postal address and an electronic mail address (if available).
Authors will be notified of the acceptance or rejection of their pa-
pers by September 19, 1994. Full versions of the accepted papers must
be received in camera-ready form by October 24, 1994. Authors of ac-
cepted papers will be required to sign ACM copyright release forms.
Proceedings will be distributed at the conference and subsequently
will be available for purchase from ACM Press.
