Call For Papers
PLDI is a premier forum for all areas of programming language research, including the design, implementation, theory, and efficient use of languages. PLDI seeks outstanding research that has broad appeal and spans the breadth of programming languages. PLDI’s emphases include innovative and creative approaches to compile-time and runtime technology, novel language designs and features, and results from implementations. Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics:

    Language designs and extensions
    Static and dynamic analysis of programs
    Domain-specific languages and tools
    Type systems and program logics
    Program transformation and optimization
    Checking or improving the security or correctness of programs
    Memory management
    Parallelism, both implicit and explicit
    Performance and energy analysis, evaluation, and tools
    Novel programming models
    Debugging techniques and tools
    Program understanding
    Interaction of compilers/runtimes with underlying systems
    Program synthesis

PLDI welcomes new topics.


Please note that formatting requirements for PLDI’15 will be different to previous years. Details will be made available shortly.

A link to the website for paper submissions will appear here closer to the submission deadline.

To enable double-blind reviewing, author names and their affiliations must be omitted from submissions, and references to related work by the authors should be in the third person (e.g., not “We build on our previous work …” but rather “We build on the work of …”). However, nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult (e.g., important background references should not be omitted or anonymized). If you have questions about the logistics for the double-blind reviewing process, please look at the double-blind reviewing FAQ from PLDI 2014.

Papers must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere as described by SIGPLAN’s Republication Policy. Submitters should also be aware of ACM’s Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism.

Evaluation Criteria

The program committee and the external review committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to the PLDI audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, and clarity. The paper must be organized so that it is easily understood by an audience with varied expertise. The paper should clearly identify what has been accomplished, why it is significant, and how it relates to previous work.

Artifact Evaluation Process

Authors of papers accepted papers will be invited to formally submit these supporting materials to the Artifact Evaluation process. The Artifact Evaluation process, is run by a separate committee whose task is to assess how the artifacts support the work described in the papers. This submission is voluntary and will not influence the final decision regarding the papers. Papers that go through the Artifact Evaluation process successfully will receive a seal of approval printed on the papers themselves. Additional information will be available on the PLDI AEC web page closer to the submission deadline.


Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright release.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: All accepted papers will be available in the ACM Digital Library as early as May 30, 2015. The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
