19th Asian Symposium on Programming Languages and Systems (APLAS 2021)
Oct 17-Oct 22, 2021,
Chicago, Illinois (co-located with SPLASH 2021)

The 19th Asian Symposium on Programming Languages and Systems (APLAS 2021)
aims to stimulate programming language research by providing a forum for
the presentation of the latest results and the exchange of ideas in
programming languages and systems.  APLAS is based in Asia but is an
international forum that serves the worldwide programming languages
community. APLAS 2021 will be co-located with SPLASH 2021.

Due to the COVID-19 situation, all authors will be given the chance to
present remotely regardless of whether the conference is held as a physical,
virtual, or hybrid physical/virtual meeting.

Papers are solicited on topics such as:

- Semantics, logics, foundational theory
- Design of languages, type systems, and foundational calculi
- Domain-specific languages
- Compilers, interpreters, abstract machines
- Program derivation, synthesis, and transformation
- Program analysis, verification, model-checking
- Logic, constraint, probabilistic, and quantum programming
- Software security
- Concurrency and parallelism
- Tools and environments for programming and implementation
- Applications of SAT/SMT to programming and implementation

Topics are not limited to those discussed in previous symposiums. Papers
identifying future directions of programming and those addressing the rapid
changes of the underlying computing platforms are especially welcome.
Demonstration of tools in the scope of APLAS are welcome to the Tool paper
category. Authors concerned about the appropriateness of a topic are welcome
to consult with program chair prior to submission.


Submission deadline: June 16, 2021 (anywhere on Earth)
Author response: July 28 - 30, 2021
Author notification: August 11, 2021
Final version: September 1, 2021
Conference: October 17 - October 22, 2021


We solicit submissions in the form of regular research papers describing
original scientific research results, including system development and case
studies. Regular research papers should not exceed 18 pages in the Springer
LNCS format, including bibliography and figures. This category encompasses
both theoretical and implementation (also known as system descriptions)
papers. In either case, submissions should clearly identify what has been
accomplished and why it is significant. Submissions will be judged on the
basis of significance, relevance, correctness, originality, and clarity.
System descriptions papers should contain a link to a working system and
will be judged on originality, usefulness, and design. In case of lack of
space, proofs, experimental results, or any information supporting the
technical results of the paper could be provided as an appendix or a link
to a web page, but reviewers are not obliged to read them.


We solicit submissions in the form of tool papers describing a
demonstration of a tool or a system that support theory, program
construction, reasoning, or program execution in the scope of APLAS. The
main purpose of a tool paper is to display a completed, robust and
well-documented tool-highlighting the overall functionality of the tool,
the interfaces of the tool, interesting examples and applications of the
tool, an assessment of the tool’s strengths and weaknesses, and a summary
of documentation/support available with the tool. Authors of tool
demonstration proposals are expected to present a live demonstration of the
tool at the conference. It is highly desirable that the tools are available
on the web. System and Tool papers should not exceed 8 pages in the
Springer LNCS format, including bibliography and figures. They may include
an additional appendix of up to 6 extra pages giving the outline,
screenshots, examples, etc. to indicate the content of the proposed live

Papers should be submitted electronically via the submission web page using
HotCRP (
The acceptable format is PDF. Submitted papers must be unpublished and not
submitted for publication elsewhere. Papers must be written in English.
The proceedings will be published as a volume in Springer’s LNCS series.
Accepted papers must be presented at the conference.


APLAS 2021 will use a lightweight double-blind reviewing process. Following
this process means that reviewers will not see the authors’ names or
affiliations as they initially review a paper. The authors’ names will then
be revealed to the reviewers only once their reviews have been submitted.
To facilitate this process, submitted papers must adhere to the following:
Author names and institutions must be omitted and
References to the authors’ own related work should be in the third person
(e.g., not “We build on our previous work …” but rather “We build on the
work of …”).
The purpose of this process is to help the reviewers come to an initial
judgement about the paper without bias, not to make it impossible for them
to discover the authors if they were to try. Nothing should be done in the
name of anonymity that weakens the submission, makes the job of reviewing
the paper more difficult, or interferes with the process of disseminating
new ideas. For example, important background references should not be
omitted or anonymized, even if they are written by the same authors and
share common ideas, techniques, or infrastructure. Authors should feel free
to disseminate their ideas or draft versions of their paper as they
normally would. For instance, authors may post drafts of their papers on
the web or give talks on their research ideas.


During the author response period, authors will be able to read reviews and
respond to them as appropriate.


The Program Committee reserves the right, up until the time of publication,
to reverse a decision of paper acceptance. Reversal is possible if fatal
flaws are discovered in the paper, or research integrity is found to have
been seriously breached.
