The 18th Brazilian Symposium on Programming Languages, SBLP 2014, will be held in Maceio, a beautiful city in the Northeastern part of Brazil. The conference will happen between September 28th and October 3rd, 2014. SBLP provides a venue for researchers and practitioners interested in the fundamental principles and innovations in the design and implementation of programming languages and systems. SBLP 2014 invites authors to contribute with technical papers related (but not limited) to:
- Program generation and transformation, including domain-specific languages and model-driven development in the context of programming languages.
- Programming paradigms and styles, including functional, object-oriented, aspect-oriented, scripting languages, real-time, service-oriented, multithreaded, parallel, and distributed programming.
- Formal semantics and theoretical foundations, including denotational, operational, algebraic and categorical.
- Program analysis and verification, including type systems, static analysis and abstract interpretation.
- Programming language design and implementation, including new programming models, programming language environments, compilation and interpretation techniques.
Contributions should be written in Portuguese or English. Papers should fall into one of two different categories: full papers, with at most 15 pages, or short papers, with at most 5 pages. The two previous editions of SBLP have been published in a volume of Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS), by Springer. For this reason, all papers must be prepared using the LNCS template, available at http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0. We encourage the submission of short papers reporting partial results of on-going master dissertations or doctoral theses. All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings distributed in a digital media by the CBSOFT organizers.
Submissions should be done through the SBLP 2014 page at EasyChair, which is available at
As in previous editions, a journal's special issue, with selected papers from accepted contributions, is anticipated. Selected papers from the 2003 to the 2008 editions of SBLP were published in special issues of the Journal of Universal Computer Science, by Springer. The post-proceedings of SBLP from 2009 to 2012, also with selected papers from the conference, have been published as special issues of Science of Computer Programming, by Elsevier.
