Call for Papers

Symposium on Programs as Data Objects (PADO-II)
Aarhus, Denmark, May 21-23, 2001

PADO-II will bring together researchers working in the areas of
programming and programming languages.  The symposium focuses on
techniques and supporting theory for treating programs as data objects.
Technical topics include, but are not limited to:

* Program manipulation: program specialization, type specialization,
partial evaluation, normalization, reflection, rewriting, run-time
code generation, self-application.

* Program analysis: abstract interpretation, constraints, type
inference, binding-time analysis.

* Theoretical issues in representing and classifying programs:
semantics, algorithmics, logics.

* Applications: interpretation, compilation, compiler generation,
verification, certification, meta-programming, instrumentation,
incremental computation, staging, prototyping, debugging.

Original results that bear on these and related topics are solicited.
arrive no later than December 1, 2000, which is an extended deadline.
Authors concerned about the appropriateness of a topic are encouraged to
consult with the program chairs prior to submission.

Complete papers should be submitted electronically, either in PostScript
Filenames should result from the catenation of the names of its authors
(ie, *not* "paper.ps", "pado2.ps", "popl00.ps", etc., but, eg,
"dupond-dupont.ps.gz", "brown-al.ps.gz", or "pedersen.ps.gz").
Submissions should not exceed 14 pages in the LNCS format
<http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html>.  They must designate a
corresponding author, include an e-mail address, and contain page numbers

Submitted papers will be judged on the basis of relevance, significance,
correctness, originality, and clarity.  They should include a clear
identification of what has been accomplished and why it is significant.
Submissions must include an abstract and a discussion of related work.
They must describe work that has not previously been published in a major
forum.  The authors should indicate if a closely related paper is also
being considered for another conference or journal.

Authors will be notified of acceptance by January 16, 2001.  Full
versions of the accepted papers should be formatted in the LNCS format,
and received no later than February 16, 2001.  Accepted papers will be
presented at the symposium and will appear in the proceedings, which will
be published as a Springer LNCS volume.  Further information about the
