Scope of SAS'98
SAS'98 is the Fifth International Static Analysis Symposium. Static
Analysis is increasingly recognised as a fundamental tool for high
performance implementations and verification systems of high-level
programming languages. The last two decades have witnessed substantial
developments in this area, ranging from theoretical frameworks to
design, implementation, and application of analysers in optimising
compilers.  Previous SAS symposia were held in Namur, Glasgow, Aachen
and Paris.

Submissions can address any programming paradigm, including
concurrent, constraint, functional, imperative, logic and
object-oriented programming.  Survey papers that present some aspect
of the above topics with a new coherence are also welcome.
Contributions are welcome on all aspects of Static Analysis,
including, but not limited to

Abstract Interpretation           Data Flow Analysis 
Complexity                        Theoretical Frameworks          
Experimental Evaluation           Verification Systems            
Specific Analyses                 Type Inference       
Partial Evaluation                Optimising Compilers            
Abstract Domains 

Scope of PLILP/ALP'98
The Joint International Symposium PLILP/ALP'98 unites the tenth PLILP
(Programming Languages, Implementations, Logics and Programs)
 and the seventh ALP (Algebraic and Logic Programming) conferences. 
The  PLILP symposia traditionally aim at stimulating research 
in declarative programming languages, and seek to disseminate 
insights in the relation between the logics of those languages, 
implementation techniques, and the use of these languages 
in constructing real programs.

The ALP conferences traditionally promote the exchange of ideas and
experiences among researchers from the declarative programming
communities.  In addition to the standard topics, the 98 Joint
Symposium welcomes contributions also from other programming 
areas, in particular from the concurrent and object-oriented fields.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to

Functional, Logic, and Constraint Programming
Object-Oriented Programming
Integration of Different Paradigms
Concurrent Extensions
Typing and Structuring Systems
Executable Specifications
Implementation of Declarative Languages
Compiler Specification and Construction
Parallel and Distributed Implementations
Programming Environments

Conferences venue
The Symposia will take place at the Palazzo dei Congressi of Pisa,
Italy.  Pisa is one of the oldest towns in Italy: its Etruscan origins
go back nearly 3,000 years. In Roman times Pisa became an important
port, and asserted itself as a seagoing power in the 12th century.
This period was the start of a phase of economic prosperity and
artistic splendour.  Furthermore it became also an active centre of
culture: its world famous University was founded in 1334.  Nowadays
Pisa's historical, cultural and artistic heritage attracts many
tourists from all over the world.
Pisa is well connected to the rest of Europe by its international
airport, which has daily flights to the main European cities, and by
good road and rail links.

SAS'98 will be held from September 14 to September 16, 1998.
PLILP/ALP'98 will be held from September 16 to September 18, 1998.
The technical program of both conferences will consist of invited
lectures, tutorials, presentations of refereed papers, and software

The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag
in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series.
