SAIG'01 Extended Deadline

                              CALL FOR PAPERS
 Semantics, Applications and Implementation of Program Generation (SAIG'01)
                    PLI Workshop, September 6th, 2001.

                   (EXTENDED DEADLINE:  June 1st, 2001)

Program generation has the prospect of being an integral part of a wide
range of software development processes.  Many recent studies investigate
different aspects of program generation systems, including their semantics,
their applications, and their implementation.  Existing theories and systems
address both high-level (source) language and low-level (machine) language
generation.  A number of programming languages now supports program
generation and manipulation, with different goals, implementation
techniques, and targeted at different applications. The goal of this
workshop is to provide a meeting place for researchers and practitioners
interested in this research area, and in program generation in general.

Scope:  The workshop solicits submissions related to theoretical and
practical models and tools for building program generators systems,
Examples include:

   * Semantics, type systems,  and implementations for multi-stage
   * Run-time specialization systems:  e.g. compilers, operating systems.
   * High-level program generation (applications, foundations,
   * Program synthesis from high-level specifications.
   * Symbolic computation, linking and explicit substitution, in-lining and

Reports on applications of these techniques to real-world problems are
especially encouraged, as are submissions that relate ideas and concepts
from several of these topics, or bridge the gap between theory and practice.
The program committee is happy to advise on the appropriateness of a
particular subject.

Format:  The one-day workshop will contain slots for technical papers (30
minutes) and position papers (20 minutes. Both times include discussion.) In
addition, there will be one hour allocated for open discussions at the end
of the workshop.  Proceedings will be published as an LNCS volume.

Invited Speakers:

   * Krzysztof Czarnecki, University of Ilmenau and Daimler Chrysler
   * Tim Sheard, Oregon Graduate Institute of Science and Technology
   * Mitch Wand, Northeastern University

Submission Details:  Authors are invited to submit papers of at most 5000
words (excluding figures), in postscript format (letter or A4), using the
electronic submission form by June 1st, 2001. This extended deadline is
final. Both position and technical papers are welcome.  Please indicate at
time of submission. Position papers are expected to describe ongoing work,
future directions, and/or survey previous results.  Technical papers are
expected to contain novel results.  All papers will be reviewed by the
program committee for the above mentioned criteria, in addition to
correctness and clarity.  Authors will be notified of acceptance by June
17th, 2001.  Final version of the papers must be submitted by July 15th,
