Certified Programs and Proofs (CPP) is an international conference on 
practical and theoretical topics in all areas that consider formal 
verification and certification as an essential paradigm for their work. 
CPP spans areas of computer science, mathematics, logic, and education.

CPP 2024 (https://popl24.sigplan.org/home/CPP-2024) will be held on 
15-16 January 2024 and will be co-located with POPL 2024 in London, UK. 
CPP 2024 is sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN, in cooperation with ACM SIGLOG.

CPP 2024 will welcome contributions from all members of the community. 
The CPP 2024 organizers will strive to enable both in-person and remote 
participation, in cooperation with the POPL 2024 organizers.


* Abstract Submission Deadline: 12 September 2023 at 23:59 AoE (UTC-12h)
* Paper Submission Deadline: 19 September 2023 at 23:59 AoE (UTC-12h)
* Notification (tentative): 21 November 2023
* Camera Ready Deadline (tentative): Mid December 2023 (TBA)
* Conference: 15-16 January 2024

Deadlines expire at the end of the day, anywhere on earth. Abstract and 
submission deadlines are strict and there will be no extensions.


Around 10% of the accepted papers at CPP 2024 will be designated as 
Distinguished Papers. This award highlights papers that the CPP program 
committee thinks should be read by a broad audience due to their 
relevance, originality, significance and clarity.


We welcome submissions in research areas related to formal certification 
of programs and proofs. The following is a non-exhaustive list of topics 
of interest to CPP:
* certified or certifying programming, compilation, linking, OS kernels, 
runtime systems, security monitors, and hardware;
* certified mathematical libraries and mathematical theorems;
* proof assistants (e.g, ACL2, Agda, Coq, Dafny, F*, HOL4, HOL Light, 
Idris, Isabelle, Lean, Mizar, Nuprl, PVS, etc);
* new languages and tools for certified programming;
* program analysis, program verification, and program synthesis;
* program logics, type systems, and semantics for certified code;
* logics for certifying concurrent and distributed systems;
* mechanized metatheory, formalized programming language semantics, and 
logical frameworks;
* higher-order logics, dependent type theory, proof theory, logical 
systems, separation logics, and logics for security;
* verification of correctness and security properties;
* formally verified blockchains and smart contracts;
* certificates for decision procedures, including linear algebra, 
polynomial systems, SAT, SMT, and unification in algebras of interest;
* certificates for semi-decision procedures, including equality, 
first-order logic, and higher-order unification;
* certificates for program termination;
* formal models of computation;
* mechanized (un)decidability and computational complexity proofs;
* formally certified methods for induction and coinduction;
* integration of interactive and automated provers;
* logical foundations of proof assistants;
* applications of AI and machine learning to formal certification;
* user interfaces for proof assistants and theorem provers;
* teaching mathematics and computer science with proof assistants.


Prior to the paper submission deadline, the authors should upload their 
anonymized paper in PDF format through the HotCRP system at


The submissions must be written in English and provide sufficient detail 
to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the contribution. 
They must be formatted following the ACM SIGPLAN Proceedings format 
using the acmart style with the sigplan option, which provides a 
two-column style, using 10 point font for the main text, and a header 
for double blind review submission, i.e.,


The submitted papers should not exceed 12 pages, including tables and 
figures, but excluding bibliography and clearly marked appendices. The 
papers should be self-contained without the appendices. Shorter papers 
are welcome and will be given equal consideration. Submissions not 
conforming to the requirements concerning format and maximum length may 
be rejected without further consideration.

CPP 2024 will employ a lightweight double-blind reviewing process 
following the process from previous years. To facilitate this, the 
submissions must adhere to two rules:
(1) author names and institutions must be omitted, and
(2) references to 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 PC and external reviewers 
come to an initial judgment 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 or 
makes the job of reviewing it more difficult. In particular, important 
background references should not be omitted or anonymized. In addition, 
authors are free to disseminate their ideas or draft versions of their 
papers as usual. For example, authors may post drafts of their papers on 
the web or give talks on their research ideas. Note that POPL 2024 
itself will employ full double-blind reviewing, which differs from the 
light-weight CPP process.  This FAQ from previous SIGPLAN conference 
addresses many common concerns: 

We strongly encourage the authors to provide any supplementary material 
that supports the claims made in the paper, such as proof scripts or 
experimental data. This material must be uploaded at submission time, as 
an archive, not via a URL. Two forms of supplementary material may be 
(1) Anonymous supplementary material is made available to the reviewers 
before they submit their first-draft reviews.
(2) Non-anonymous supplementary material is made available to the 
reviewers after they have submitted their first-draft reviews and have 
learned the identity of the authors.

Please use anonymous supplementary material whenever possible, so that 
it can be taken into account from the beginning of the reviewing process.

The submitted papers must adhere to the SIGPLAN Republication Policy 
(https://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Policies/Republication/) and the ACM 
Policy on Plagiarism 
(https://www.acm.org/publications/policies/plagiarism). Concurrent 
submissions to other conferences, journals, workshops with proceedings, 
or similar forums of publication are not allowed. The PC chairs should 
be informed of closely related work submitted to a conference or journal 
in advance of submission. One author of each accepted paper is expected 
to present it at the (possibly virtual) conference.


The CPP 2024 proceedings will be published by the ACM, and authors of 
accepted papers will be required to choose one of the following 
publication options:
(1) Author retains copyright of the work and grants ACM a non-exclusive 
permission-to-publish license and, optionally, licenses the work under a 
Creative Commons license.
(2) Author retains copyright of the work and grants ACM an exclusive 
permission-to-publish license.
(3) Author transfers copyright of the work to ACM.

For authors who can afford it, we recommend option (1), which will make 
the paper Gold Open Access, and also encourage such authors to license 
their work under the CC-BY license. ACM will charge you an article 
processing fee for this option (currently, US$700), which you have to 
pay directly with the ACM. You don’t need to pay this fee if the 
corresponding author’s affiliating institution is part of ACM OPEN 

For everyone else, we recommend option (2), which is free and allows you 
to achieve Green Open Access, by uploading a preprint of your paper to a 
repository that guarantees permanent archival such as arXiv or HAL. This 
is anyway a good idea for timely dissemination even if you chose option 1.

The official CPP 2024 proceedings will also be available via SIGPLAN 
OpenTOC (http://www.sigplan.org/OpenTOC/#cpp).

For ACM’s take on this, see their Copyright Policy 
(http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/copyright-policy) and Author 
Rights (http://authors.acm.org/main.html).
