The colloquium on Principles, Logics, and Implementations of high-level programming languages (PLI 2000) will be held in Montreal September 18-23, 2000. PLI 2000 includes ICFP 2000 (ACM-SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming) and PPDP 2000 (ACM-SIGPLAN 2nd International Conference on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming). Workshops affiliated with the colloquium will be held as parallel events during the week. The purpose of these workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less formal and possibly more focussed way than the conferences themselves. As such, it also offers a good opportunity for young researchers to present their work and to obtain feedback from an interested community. The format of each workshop is to be determined by the organizers, but it is expected that they contain ample time for general discussion.
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for workshops to the PLI 2000 Workshop Chair by January 7, 2000. Such a proposal should be no longer than two pages and should describe the topic of the workshop (that should relate broadly to declarative and/or functional programming), the names and contact information of the organizers, the expected number of participants and duration, and any other factors relevant to its selection. The preference is for day-long workshops, but longer or shorter workshops will be considered.
Proposals will be evaluated by the PLI 2000 Workshop Chair, the ICFP and PPDP Program Chairs, and the ICFP General Chair. Acceptance decisions will be made by February 1, 2000. The titles and brief information related to accepted workshop proposals will be included in the conference program and advertised in the call for participation. Workshop organizers will be responsible for producing a full-blown Call for Papers, giving it adequate visibility, reviewing and making acceptance decisions on submitted papers, scheduling workshop activities in consultation with the local organizers, and producing (informal) proceedings for the workshop participants.
