                *** First Call for Papers ***

             The Fifth ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on

          Types in Language Design and Implementation

              Madrid, Spain, January 23, 2010

                (Co-located with POPL 2010)

                Submission Deadline: 5 October 2009

The role of types and proofs in all aspects of language design,

compiler construction, and software development has expanded greatly

in recent years. Type systems, type-based analyses and type-theoretic

deductive systems have been central to advances in compilation

techniques for modern programming languages, verification of safety

and security properties of programs, program transformation and

optimization, and many other areas. The ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Types

in Language Design and Implementation brings researchers together to

share new ideas and results concerning all aspects of types and

programming, and is now an annual event. TLDI 2010 is the fifth

workshop in the series and will be co-located with POPL in Madrid,

Spain in January 2010.

Submissions for TLDI 2010 are invited on all interactions of types

with language design, implementation, and programming

methodology. This includes both practical applications and theoretical

aspects. TLDI 2010 specifically encourages papers from a broad field

of programming language and compiler researchers, including those

working on object-oriented, dynamically-typed or late-bound languages,

systems programming, mobile-code or security, as well as traditional

fully-static type systems. Topics of interest include:

   * Typed intermediate languages and type-directed compilation

   * Type-based language support for safety and security

   * Types for interoperability

   * Type systems for system programming languages

   * Type-based program analysis, transformation, and optimization

   * Dependent types and type-based proof assistants

   * Types for security protocols, concurrency, and distributed computing

   * Type inference and type reconstruction

   * Type-based specifications of data structures and program invariants

   * Type-based memory management

   * Proof-carrying code and certifying compilation

   * Types and objects

This is not meant to be an exhaustive list; papers on novel

utilizations of type information are welcome. Authors concerned about

the suitability of a topic are encouraged to inquire via electronic

mail to the program chair prior to submission.

Submission Guidelines:

Authors should submit a full paper of no more than 12 pages (including

bibliography and appendices) by Monday 5th October, 2009. The

submission deadline and length limitations are firm. Submissions that

do not meet these guidelines will not be considered.

All submissions should be in standard ACM SIGPLAN conference format:

two columns, nine-point font on a ten-point baseline. Detailed

formatting guidelines are available on the SIGPLAN Author Information

page, along with a LaTeX class file and template.

Papers must be submitted electronically via the conference website in

Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF) and must be formatted for US Letter

size (8.5"x11") paper. Authors for whom this is a hardship should contact

the program chair before the deadline.

Submitted papers must adhere to the SIGPLAN Republication

Policy. Submissions should contain original research not published or

submitted for publication elsewhere.

Important Dates:

- Submission of papers: 5 October 2009 (Monday)

- Notification:         6 November 2009 (Friday)

- Final versions due:  15 November 2009 (Sunday)

- Workshop:            23 January 2010 (Saturday)
