POPL 2021 will welcome contributions from all members of the community. Independent of what will happen with global Covid-19 crisis and the complications of its aftermath, authors and other participants will be given the choice to participate in-person or remotely.
The paper submission deadline (July 9, 2020) is firm and not subject to change.
POPL will take place January 17-22, 2021, as a physical, virtual, or hybrid physical/virtual meeting. We will be monitoring the Covid-19 situation and will announce a decision on the nature of the meeting in time.
Welcome to the website of the 48th ACM SIGPLAN Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages (POPL 2021).
The annual Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages is a forum for the discussion of all aspects of programming languages and programming systems. Both theoretical and experimental papers are welcome, on topics ranging from formal frameworks to experience reports. We seek submissions that make principled, enduring contributions to the theory, design, understanding, implementation or application of programming languages.
The symposium is sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN, in cooperation with ACM SIGACT and ACM SIGLOG.
