ESOP is a member conference of the European Joint Conferences
on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS), which is the primary
European forum for academic and industrial researchers working on
topics relating to Software Science.
ETAPS 2011 is the 14th
joint conference in this series.
The prior conferences have been ETAPS 1998 in Lisbon, ETAPS 1999 in Amsterdam, ETAPS 2000 in Berlin, ETAPS 2001 in Genova, ETAPS 2002 in Grenoble, ETAPS 2003 in Warsaw, ETAPS 2004 in Barcelona, ETAPS 2005 in Edinburgh, ETAPS 2006 in Vienna, ETAPS 2007 in Braga, and ETAPS 2008 in Budapest, ETAPS 2009 in York, UK, and ETAPS 2010 in Paphos, Cyprus.
Call for Papers
ESOP is an annual conference devoted to fundamental issues in the
specification, design, analysis, and implementation of programming
languages and systems. ESOP 2011 is the twentieth edition in this
series and seeks contributions on all aspects of programming language
research including, but not limited to, the following areas:
- Programming paradigms and styles: functional programming, aspect-oriented
programming, object-oriented programming, logic programming, constraint
programming, extensible programming languages, domain-specific languages,
biologically-inspired languages, synchronous and real-time programming
- Methods and tools to write, reason about, and specify languages and programs:
module systems, programming techniques, meta programming, type systems,
logical foundations, denotational semantics, operational semantics, program
verification, static analysis, testing, language-based security.
- Methods and tools for implementation: rewriting systems, program
transformations, partial evaluation, experimental evaluations,
virtual machines, intermediate languages, run-time environments.
- Concurrency and distribution: parallel programming, process algebras,
concurrency theory, service-oriented computing, distributed and mobile languages.
Authors will be given a 60-hours period (from
Monday, November 22) to read and respond to the reviews of their papers before the PC meeting.
Papers must be written in English, unpublished and not submitted for
publication elsewhere. The proceedings will be published in the Springer-Verlag
Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. Final papers will be in the format
specified by Springer-Verlag in this page.
Submissions must be in PDF format, formatted in the LNCS style and be
at most 20 pages long. Additional material, that is not to be included
in the final version, but may help assessing the merits of the
submission - for example details of proofs - may be placed in a
clearly marked appendix that is not included in the page limit. ETAPS
referees are at liberty to ignore appendices, and papers must be
understandable without them.
Papers can be sumitted via the following
The submission deadline for papers is strict (site will close at
23:59 Samoan time). Submission of an abstract implies no obligation to
submit a full version; abstracts with no corresponding full versions
by the full paper deadline will be considered as withdrawn.
- Monday, 4 October 2010: Abstract submission deadline (postponed from Oct. 1);
- Friday, 8 October 2010: Paper submission deadline;
- Monday, 22 November 2010: Start of author response period;
- Friday, 10 December 2010: Author notification;
- Monday, 3 January 2011: Camera-ready paper versions due
