PLDI is a forum where researchers, developers, educators, and practitioners exchange information on the latest practical and experimental work in the design and implementation of programming languages.
PLDI seeks original research papers that focus on the design, implementation, development, and use of programming languages.
PLDI emphasizes innovative and creative approaches to compile-time and runtime technology; novel language designs and features; and results from implementations.
The conference itself will be held Monday through Wednesday June 17-19. We currently expect tutorials on the preceding Sunday, and a number of co-located conferences on the following Thursday and Friday.
The original call for papers and tutorials are available here.
This year, there were four distinguished papers:
There are six tutorials this year:
|June 16||June 17||June 18||June 19||June 20||June 21||June 22|
|Tut. 1||Tut. 4||SASB||ISMM|
|Tut. 2||Tut. 5||TAPAS||LCTES|
|Tut. 3||Tut. 6||PASTE||MSPC|
* Sponsored by Microsoft, not ACM.
The student research competition provides an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students attending PLDI 2013 to present their research work in the area of programming language design and implementation. The goal is to give students a forum to discuss their research with experts in their field, and to help them sharpen their research and communication skills.
For more information, see:
The PLDI Fun and Interesting Thoughts (FIT) session provides a venue for new, interesting, provocative, and/or inspiring ideas. The session is open to any idea within the purview of the field of programming languages, broadly construed. Ideas that provide a new perspective on the field, challenge the conventional value system, or point to new technical or social directions for the field are especially welcome.
We anticipate that the PLDI FIT session will consist of short (5 to 10 minute) talks. Each PLDI FIT submission should consist of a short writeup whose length is consistent with the brevity of the planned presentation. We anticipate that one to two pages should be sufficient. Note that it is the responsibility of the authors to deliver a fun and interesting writeup - the members of the program committee are under no obligation to read a writeup they do not find fun and interesting.
Please mail submissions directly to firstname.lastname@example.org by May 4th.
Notification of acceptance will be sent on May 20th.

The SIGPLAN professional activities commitee has limited travel support available to help some attendees attend SIGPLAN events.
Students in need of travel support are encouraged to apply.
For more details, see:
In addition to the regular PAC funding, US students are eligible for travel support from the National Science Foundation. Applying for NSF support is straightforward, by simply filling out the "Funding from other sources" section on the PAC website as part of your regular application.
Only those students who are affiliated with a US institution AND are US citizens or permanent residents are eligible for alternative funding. Please do not fill out the "Funding from other sources" section if you do not meet these conditions.
For travel planning, the PLDI program will run from 9:00am on Monday to 5:00pm on Wednesday.
