APLAS aims at stimulating programming language and systems research by providing an international forum for the presentation of original results and the exchange of ideas and experience.

The APLAS series is sponsored by the Asian Association for Foundation of Software (AAFS), which has been founded by Asian researchers in cooperation with many researchers from Europe and the USA. The first two formal APLAS symposiums were successfully held in Taipei (2004, Taiwan) and Beijing (2003, China), after three informal workshops held in Shanghai (2002, China), Daejeon (2001, Korea), and Singapore (2000).


The symposium is devoted to all topics ranging from foundational to practical issues in programming languages and systems. Submissions are invited on, but not limited to, the following topics:


Invited Speakers: Patrick Cousot, Haruo Hosoya, Thomas Reps

Detailed Program

APLAS technical program consists of paper presentations, invited talks, and a dedicated session for posters.
  During the poster session students and professionals can present their works-in-progress or very recent results and can get feedback from other colleagues. Before the symposium, all the poster authors are asked to read other posters' abstracts and give feedbacks beforehand.
  New! On November 2nd, one day before the main program, we have two tutorials. Please visit the program page for details.
