CPP 2016

The 5th ACM SIGPLAN Conference on

Certified Programs and Proofs

in cooperation with ACM SIGLOG

Saint Petersburg, Florida, USA - January 18-19, 2016

Paper Submission and Review Process

Submitted papers should not exceed 12 pages in the ACM SIGPLAN Proceedings format. Shorter papers are welcome and will be given equal consideration. The proceedings of the conference will be published by the ACM. Templates for ACM SIGPLAN format can be found on the ACM SIGPLAN website.

Papers should be submitted in PDF format, through the EasyChair submission page. Abstracts must be submitted by the deadline given on the front page. The deadline for full papers falls one week later, and authors have the option to withdraw their papers during the window between the two.

Each submission must be written in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the paper. It should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance and relevance to the conference, all phrased for the non-specialist. Technical and formal developments directed to the specialist should follow. Whenever appropriate, the submission should come along with a formal development, using whatever prover, e.g., Agda, Coq, Elf, HOL, HOL-Light, Isabelle, Matita, Mizar, NQTHM, PVS, Vampire, etc. References and comparisons with related work should be included. Papers not conforming to the above requirements concerning format and length may be rejected without further consideration.

The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the proceedings of other published conferences or workshops. The PC chairs should be informed of closely related work submitted to a conference or journal in advance of submission. Original formal proofs of known results in mathematics or computer science are among the targets. One author of each accepted paper is expected to present it at the conference.

AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work. (For those rare conferences whose proceedings are published in the ACM Digital Library after the conference is over, the official publication date remains the first day of the conference.)
