ESOP 2021

30th European Symposium on Programming

ESOP is an annual conference devoted to fundamental issues in the specification, design, analysis, and implementation of programming languages and systems. ESOP seeks contributions on all aspects of programming language research including, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Programming paradigms and styles: functional programming, object-oriented programming, logic programming, constraint programming, extensible programming languages, domain-specific languages, synchronous and real-time programming languages;
  • Methods and tools to write and specify programs and languages: programming techniques, logical foundations, formal semantics, meta-programming, language-based security;
  • Methods and tools for reasoning about programs: type systems, static and dynamic program analysis, program verification, testing;
  • Methods and tools for implementation: program transformations, rewriting systems, partial evaluation, experimental evaluations, virtual machines, intermediate languages, run-time environments;
  • Concurrency and distribution: process algebras, concurrency theory, parallel programming, service-oriented computing, distributed and mobile computing.

Contributions bridging the gap between theory and practice are particularly welcome.

Important dates and submission

See the ETAPS 2021 joint call for papers.  Submit your paper via the ESOP 2021 author interface of EasyChair.

The review process of ESOP 2021 is single-blind, with a rebuttal phase.

ESOP 2021 has just one paper category: regular research papers of max 25 pp llncs.cls (excluding bibliography).

The authors may append clearly marked appendix after the bibliography. The reviewers are under no obligation to look at the appendix.

Special issue

Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their work to ACM Trans. on Programming Languages and Systems.
