New Items

APLAS aims at stimulating programming language research by providing a forum for the presentation of recent results and the exchange of ideas and experience in topics concerned with programming languages and systems. APLAS is based in Asia, but is an international forum that serves the worldwide programming languages community.

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 past formal APLAS symposiums were successfully held in Singapore (2007), Sydney (2006, Australia), Tsukuba (2005, Japan), Taipei (2004, Taiwan), and Beijing (2003,China), after three informal workshops held in Shanghai (2002, China), Daejeon (2001, Korea), and Singapore (2000). Proceedings of the past symposiums were published in Springer-Verlag's LNCS 2895, 3302, 3780, 4279, and 4807.

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