ESOP 2005: The European Symposium on Programming

Edinburgh, Scotland, April 2-10, 2005

Affiliated with ETAPS'05


Conference Description

ESOP is an annual conference devoted to fundamental issues in the specification, analysis, and implementation of programming languages and systems. This includes:

  • design of programming languages and calculi and their formal properties
  • techniques, methods, and tools for their implementation
  • exploitation of programming styles within different programming paradigms
  • automatic and manual methods for reasoning about programs
  • the design and invention of systems and tools to assist in exploitation of the languages

Contributions bridging the gap between theory and practice are particularly welcome. Topics traditionally covered by ESOP include programming paradigms and their integration, semantics, calculi of computation, security, advanced type systems, program analysis, program transformation, and practical algorithms based on theoretical developments.

More information about ESOP can be found at ESOP's home page.

ESOP'05 is one of the main conferences of ETAPS'05.
