PLI'03 Call for Workshop Proposals

				  PLI '03
			Call for Workshop Proposals

			      Uppsala, Sweden
			    August 25-29, 2003

The 2003 colloquia on Principles, Logics, and Implementations of High-Level
Programming Languages (PLI 2003) will be held in Uppsala, Sweden, on August
25-29, 2003. PLI 2003 is a federation of colloquia that includes ICFP 2003
(the ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming) and
PPDP 2003 (the ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Principles and
Practice of Declarative Programming).

Proposals for workshops are invited for consideration ofACM SIGPLAN
sponsorship and affiliation with PLI 2003. Affiliated workshops will be
held in parallel with the ICFP and PPDP colloquia. The purpose of these
workshops is to provide a platform for presenting novel ideas in a less
formal and possibly more focused way than the conferences themselves. As
such, they also offer 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. The preference is for
one-day workshops, but other schedules will also be considered.

Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit workshop proposals to
the PLI 2003 Workshop Chair, Peter Lee (petel@cs.cmu.edu), NO LATER THAN
FEBRUARY 14, 2003. Submission may be made by e-mail (Postscript, PDF, or
ASCII) with "PLI03 Workshop Submission" in the subject header. Following
ACM SIGPLAN's sponsorship procedures, proposals must include:

  1. The name of the workshop and the sponsoring conference, if any (ICFP,
     PPDP, or neither).
  2. A statement of goals for the workshop.
  3. The names and addresses of the organizers.
  4. The names of potential participants, such as program committee
