                        POPL 2021

          48th ACM SIGPLAN-SIGACT  Symposium on
           Principles of Programming Languages

                POPL: 20 - 22 January 2021
       Affiliated Events: 17-19 January 2021
       		 Venue: Online


The 48th ACM SIGPLAN-SIGACT Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages (POPL 2021) will be held online.

POPL provides a forum for the discussion of fundamental principles and important innovations in the design, definition, analysis, transformation, implementation and verification of programming languages, programming systems, and programming abstractions.

Tutorials for POPL 2021 are solicited on any topic relevant to the POPL community. We are particularly encouraging submissions of introductory tutorials that make the research presented at POPL more accessible to the participants.

Tutorials will be held on Monday January 18, 2021 (two days before the main conference and the day before PLMW). The expected length of a tutorial is 3 hours, including questions and discussion (Q&A).

Due to the pandemic and POPL being held online, the tutorials will be online only. The presenter should divide the tutorials into smaller parts, followed by a Q&A session after each such part to answer the questions from the audience. If a tutorial is prerecorded, participants will be given the opportunity to post questions; the presenter will answer these questions during the live Q&A session. The Q&A session will be recorded.
