    ACM SIGPLAN 2006 Workshop on Partial Evaluation and Program Manipulation
    (Affiliated with POPL 2006)

    January 9-10, 2006
    Charleston, South Carolina

    The PEPM Symposium/Workshop series aims to bring together researchers
    and practitioners working in the areas of program manipulation,
    partial evaluation, and program generation. PEPM focuses on
    techniques, supporting theory, tools, and applications of the analysis
    and manipulation of programs.

    The 2006 PEPM workshop will be based on a broad interpretation of
    semantics-based program manipulation. This year, a concerted effort
    will be made to expand the scope of PEPM significantly beyond the
    traditionally covered areas of partial evaluation and specialization
    and include practical applications of program transformations such as
    refactoring tools, and practical implementation techniques such as
    rule-based transformation systems. In addition, the scope of PEPM
    will be broadened to cover manipulation and transformations of program
    and system representations such as structural and semantic models that
    occur in the context of model-driven development. In order to reach
    out to practitioners, a separate category of tool demonstration papers
    will be solicited.

    Topics of interest for PEPM'06 include, but are not limited to:

    * Program and model manipulation techniques such as transformations
    driven by rules, patterns, or analyses, partial evaluation,
    specialization, slicing, symbolic execution, refactoring, aspect
    weaving, decompilation, and obfuscation.

    * Program analysis techniques that are used to drive program/model
    manipulation such as abstract interpretation, static analysis,
    binding-time analysis, dynamic analysis, constraint solving, and type

    * Analysis and transformation for programs/models with advanced features
    such as objects, generics, ownership types, aspects, reflection, XML
    type systems, component frameworks, and middleware.

    * Techniques that treat programs/models as data objects including
    meta-programming, generative programming, model-driven program
    generation and transformation.

    * Application of the above techniques including experimental studies,
    engineering needed for scalability, and benchmarking in a wide variety
    of domains including source code manipulation, domain-specific
    language implementations, scientific computing, middleware frameworks
    and infrastructure needed for distributed and web-based applications.

    We especially encourage papers that break new ground including
    descriptions of how program/model manipulation tools can be integrated
    into realistic software development processes, descriptions of robust
    tools capable of effectively handling realistic applications, and new
    areas of application such as rapidly evolving systems, distributed and
    web-based programming including middleware manipulation, model-driven
    development, and on-the-fly program adaptation driven by run-time or
    statistical analysis.

    Submission Categories, Guidelines, and Proceedings:
    Regular Research Papers must not exceed 10 pages in ACM Proceedings
    style. Tool demonstration papers must not exceed 4 pages in ACM
    Proceedings style, and authors will be expected to present a live
    demonstration of the described tool at the workshop. Suggested
    topics, evaluation criteria, and writing guidelines for both research
    tool demonstration papers will be made available on the PEPM'06
    Web-site. Papers should be submitted electronically via the workshop
    web site. We plan to publish the workshop proceedings in ACM SIGPLAN
    Notices (with full papers appearing in the ACM Digital Library) and
    selected papers will be invited for a journal special issue dedicated
    to PEPM'06.
