TLDI'03 Call for Papers


			The ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on
		Types in Language Design and Implementation
 (Formerly called TIC, The International Workshop on Types in Compilation)


			     January 18, 2003
			  New Orleans, Louisiana
			  Co-located with POPL'03
The role of types and proofs in all aspects of language design, compiler
construction, and software development has expanded greatly in recent
years.  Type systems, type analyses, and formal deduction have led to new
concepts in compilation techniques for modern programming languages,
verification of safety and security properties of programs, program
transformation and optimization, and many other areas.  In recognition of
this expanding role, the ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Types in Language Design
and Implementation (TLDI'03) expands on the previous three International
Workshops on Types in Compilation (TIC'97, TIC'98 and TIC'00), to bring
together researchers to share new ideas and results in this area.  This
year, TLDI'03 will be sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN and colocated with POPL'03.

Submissions for this event are invited on all interactions of types with
language design, implementation, and programming.  This includes both
practical applications and theoretical aspects.  TLDI'03 specifically
encourages papers from a broad field of programming language and compiler
researchers, including those working in object-oriented, dynamically-typed,
late-binding, and mobile-code paradigms, as well as traditional
fully-static type systems.  Topics of interest include:

 - Proof-carrying code and certifying compilation 
 - Typed intermediate languages and type-directed compilation 
 - Type-based language support for safety and security 
 - Types for interoperability 
 - Type safety and security of system programming languages 
 - Type-based program analysis, transformation, and optimization 
 - Dependent types and type-based proof assistants 
 - Types for security protocols, concurrency, and distributed computing 
 - Type inference and type reconstruction 
 - Type-based specifications of data structures and program invariants 
 - Type-based memory management 

This is not meant to be an exhaustive list; papers on novel utilizations of
type information are welcome.  Authors concerned about the suitability of a
topic are encouraged to inquire via electronic mail to the program chair
prior to submission.


We solicit submissions on original research not published or submitted for
publication elsewhere.  Technical summaries, in English and not to exceed
5000 words (approximately 10 pages), should be submitted to the program
chair by FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 27, 2002.  Because of hard constraints imposed
for the publication of the proceedings, this is a hard deadline.


To submit a paper, authors should complete the following two steps by the
submission deadline:

 1) Send an e-mail message to petel@cs.cmu.edu containing the title,
    authors' contact information, and an abstract (not to exceed 200 words)
    in ASCII.

 2) Send the technical summary itself. The summary should also be sent
    electronically to petel@cs.cmu.edu.  (Persons to whom electronic
    submission poses a hardship may make individual arrangements with the
    program chair.)

Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) is strongly preferred for all
submissions.  Authors should be sure to use full font inclusion to ensure
portability.  All papers must be formatted for US Letter (8.5"x11") paper.
Postscript (PS) format submissions will also be accepted, provided that
they preview and print properly using Ghostscript with standard fonts.

All submissions must include a return postal address and an electronic mail
address.  Receipt of the submissions will be acknowledged by e-mail within 2

The proceedings for the workshop will be published by the ACM Press.


Please note: Due to the short time from submission to publication of the
proceedings, the submission deadlines given above are firm.
