Semantics, Applications and Implementation of Program Generation (SAIG'01)
PLI Workshop, September 6th, 2001.  (Extended Deadline:  June 1st, 2001)



Program generation has the prospect of being an integral part of a wide range of software development processes.  Many recent studies investigate different aspects of program generation systems, including their semantics,  their applications, and their implementation.  Existing theories and systems address both high-level (source) language and low-level (machine) language generation.  A number of programming languages now supports program generation and manipulation, with different goals, implementation techniques, and targeted at different applications. The goal of this workshop is to provide a meeting place for researchers and practitioners interested in this research area, and in program generation in general.

Scope:  The workshop solicits submissions related to theoretical and practical models and tools for building program generators systems,  Examples include:

Reports on applications of these techniques to real-world problems are especially encouraged, as are submissions that relate ideas and concepts from several of these topics, or bridge the gap between theory and practice. The program committee is happy to advise on the appropriateness of a particular subject.

Format:  The one-day workshop will contain slots for technical papers (30 minutes) and position papers (20 minutes. Both times include discussion.) In addition, there will be one hour allocated for open discussions at the end of the workshop.  Proceedings will be published as an LNCS volume.

Invited Speakers:

Submission Details:  Authors are invited to submit papers of at most 5000 words (excluding figures), in postscript format (letter or A4), using the electronic submission form by June 1st, 2001. This extended deadline is final. Both position and technical papers are welcome.  Please indicate at time of submission. Position papers are expected to describe ongoing work, future directions, and/or survey previous results.  Technical papers are expected to contain novel results.  All papers will be reviewed by the program committee for the above mentioned criteria, in addition to correctness and clarity.  Authors will be notified of acceptance by June 17th, 2001.  Final version of the papers must be submitted by July 15th, 2001.
