             47th ACM SIGPLAN-SIGACT  Symposium on
              Principles of Programming Languages

                   POPL: 19–25 January 2020
          Affiliated Events: 19-21, 25 January 2020
                      New Orleans, USA


The 47th ACM SIGPLAN-SIGACT Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages (POPL 2020) will be held in New Orleans, USA.

POPL provides a forum for the discussion of fundamental principles and important innovations in the design, definition, analysis, transformation, implementation and verification of programming languages, programming systems, and programming abstractions.

Events focusing on experimental and theoretical topics are welcome.

Proposals are invited for workshops and other events to be co-located with POPL 2020. All Co-located Events are sponsored by SIGPLAN (http://acm.org/sigplan/).

Workshops should be more informal and focused than POPL itself, include sessions that enable interaction among the workshop attendees. The preference is for one-day workshops, but other schedules can also be considered.

SIGPLAN Sponsorship

POPL Co-located Events are sponsored by SIGPLAN (http://sigplan.org/).
