Principles, Logics, and Implementations
of high-level programming languages

Montréal, Canada
September 17 - 22, 2000

PLI 2001

Program in PostScript and PDF


The colloquium on Principles, Logics, and Implementations of high-level programming languages is a collection of conferences and workshops aimed at the advancement of high-level programming languages. The first edition of PLI was held in September 1999 in Paris and brought together two popular conferences ICFP and PPDP focused on functional and declarative programming languages, and a collection of related satellite events. The second edition will be held in September 2000 in Montréal.

The events composing PLI will cover a spectrum of topics important to language development and use, including issues such as semantics, design, analysis, implementation, and application. Theoretical issues relevant to language design and programming, such as the use of type theory, logic, and logical methods in understanding and efficiently carrying out computations, will be represented. Implementation questions will provide an emphasis on compilation methods, distributed computation and static debugging techniques. There will also be a focus on industrial and educational applications. The programming languages and paradigms that are of interest have a special significance in the practice of software and at least one objective is to enhance the state-of-the-art in this realm.
