-- PLAN-X 2007 Aim and Scope

    The XML data model and its associated languages add interesting twists
    to programming language practice as well as theory. Just like its
    four predecessors, the PLAN-X 2007 workshop turns the spotlight on how
    programming languages can embrace, for example, tree-shaped XML data
    structures, regular expression types extracted from schema
    descriptions, very small or large XML instances, queries against XML
    data, and XML transformations. XML reaches deep into all aspects of
    language design, type systems, compilers, as well as runtimes and
    PLAN-X 2007 is THE forum to present and discuss novel research work in
    this area.

    We invite contributions -- papers as well as software demonstrations
    -- from members of the programming language, database, theory, and
    document processing communities and look forward to a workshop in
    which this diversity of contributions and attendees leads to lively
    discussion and a fun event.

    If you are architecting a software system that fuses programming
    language and XML technology in interesting and innovative ways, please
    submit a software demonstration proposal to PLAN-X 2007. The workshop
    program will feature a special demo session. A two-page description of
    the accepted software demonstrations will be included in the

    PLAN-X 2007 will be held in cooperation with and just after POPL 2007,
    the 34th ACM SIGPLAN-SIGACT Symposium on Principles of Programming
    Languages in the Plaza Hotel in Nice, France, on Januar 20, 2007.

-- PLAN-X 2007 Topics of Interest

    Topics of interest include the following (though interesting
    and/or innovative papers on all aspects of programming languages for
    XML are welcome):

    - Design of programming and query languages for XML
    - Programming in the XML data model itself (e.g., extending XQuery
        into a full-fledged programming language)
    - Formal accounts of XML and its processors (based on logic, automata,
        variants of lambda calculus, etc.)
    - Compilers and interpreters for XML-aware languages and optimization
    - Type systems, schema languages, and other constraints (e.g., keys)
        for tree-shaped data
    - Tree automata and transducers
    - Languages and systems that can cope with XML fragments (messages) or
        very large XML instances (beyond main-memory size)
    - Programming language glue between browsers, web services, and
    - Pioneering applications of XML-aware language technology

-- Proceedings

    Accepted submissions will be collected to form the informal PLAN-X
    2007 proceedings, to be indexed on Michael Ley's DBLP site and
    distributed at the workshop. The material may thus be published
    elsewhere at a later date.

-- Paper Format and Submission

            The web-based paper submission site for PLAN-X 2007 is open!
            Submit at URL


            (Please register as a New User to obtain a login and
            password for the submission site.)

    PLAN-X 2007 calls for contributions relevant to the open list of
    topics sketched above. We explicitly welcome reports on innovative,
    off-beat, and ''early stage'' approaches as long as the submission
    reports on original work not published or submitted elsewhere.

    - Please format your papers according to the ACM guidelines and SIG
        proceedings templates available at


        The mandatory submission file format is PDF.

    - Regular papers should not exceed 10 pages in length including
        references and appendices, but shorter abstracts (of, e.g., 2000
        words) often suffice and are acceptable as well.

    - Software demonstration proposals are limited to 2 pages and should
        include a sketch of the methods you employ as well as a description
        of what exactly will be demoed. Please submit your demonstration
        proposal via the regular paper submission site and add "(Demo)" to
        your submission's title.

-- Important Dates

    - Paper submission (extended): Tue, Oct 10, 2006, 5 PM (PDT)
    - Notification of acceptance: Sat, Nov 25, 2006
    - Camera-ready copy due: Sun, Dec 17, 2006
    - Workshop: Sat, Jan 20, 2007
