SNAPL will take place 3-6 May 2015 at Asilomar.
SNAPL provides a biennial venue to focus on big-picture questions, long-running research programs, and experience reports in programming languages. The ideal SNAPL paper takes one of two forms:
Examples include papers that
- A promising idea that would benefit from discussion and feedback.
- A paper about an ongoing research project that might not be accepted at a traditional conference.
SNAPL is interested in all aspects of programming languages. The PC is broad and open-minded and receptive to interesting ideas that will provoke thought and discussion.
- lay out a research roadmap
- summarize experiences
- present negative results
- discuss design alternatives
Interesting papers would combine the specific with the general. Submissions are limited to five pages (excluding bibliography), and must be formatted using ACM SIG style. The final papers can be up to 10 pages in length. Accepted papers will be published on an open-access site, probably arXiv CoRR.
To encourage authors to submit only their best work, each person can be an author or co-author of a single paper only. SNAPL will prefer experienced presenters and each submission must indicate on the submission site which co-author will present the paper at the conference.
SNAPL also accepts one-page abstracts. Abstracts will be reviewed lightly and all submitted abstracts will be published on the SNAPL 2015 web page. Authors of selected abstracts will be invited to give a 5-minute presentation at the gong show at the conference.
SNAPL is unaffiliated with any organization. It is a conference for the PL community organized by the PL community.
