PLPV 2013

The Seventh ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on
Programming Languages meets Program Verification 

22nd January, 2013
Rome, Italy
(Affiliated with POPL 2013)


The goal of PLPV is to foster and stimulate research at the intersection of programming languages and program verification, by bringing together experts from diverse areas like types, contracts, interactive theorem proving, model checking and program analysis. Work in this area typically attempts to reduce the burden of program verification by taking advantage of particular semantic or structural properties of the programming language. One example are dependently typed programming languages, which leverage a language's type system to specify and check rich specifications. Another example are extended static checking systems which incorporate contracts with either static or dynamic contract checking.

We invite submissions on all aspects, both theoretical and practical, of the integration of programming language and program verification technology. To encourage interaction between different communities, we seek a broad scope for PLPV. In particular, submissions may have diverse foundations for verification (based on types, Hoare-logic, abstract interpretation, etc), target different kinds of programming languages (functional, imperative, object-oriented, etc), and apply to diverse kinds of program properties (data structure invariants, security properties, temporal protocols, resource constraints, etc).

Important Dates

Submission 8th October, 2012
Notification 1st November, 2012
Final Version 8th November, 2012
Workshop 22nd January, 2013


We seek submissions of up to 12 pages related to the above topics; shorter submissions are also welcome. Submissions may describe new work, propose new challenge problems for language-based verification techniques, or present a known idea in an elegant way (i.e., a pearl).

Submissions should be prepared with
SIGPLAN two-column conference format. Submitted papers must adhere to the SIGPLAN republication policy. Concurrent submissions to other workshops, conferences, journals, or similar forums of publication are not allowed.

To submit a paper, access the submission site.


Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in the ACM Digital library.
