There are several. The two big ones, in my opinion, are PLDI and POPL.

    Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI)

A variety of papers, tending towards practical.
Used to be Compiler Construction.

Late June, abstracts due in November.
This year, June 20-24 in Orlando.

    Principles of Programming Languages (POPL)

More theoretical. Plenty of language design
(think type theory and denotational semantics)
Occasional papers on analysis or optimization.
They're trying to diversify.

Late January, abstracts due in July.
This year, due July 22nd, conference in Portland (I think)

More specialized conferences include:

        Lisp and Functional Programming (LFP or L&FP)

A nice mix of theory and implementation,
obviously emphasizing Lisp and friends.

Early July

        Object-Oriented Programing Systems, Languages, and Applications (OOPSLA)

I call this one "more specialized", but it's enormously
popular and well attended.


In addition, there are often compiler papers in related conferences

        Architectural Support for Programming Languages and Systems (ASPLOS)


        International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation
        Techniques (PACT)

plus a variety of workshops in the US and Europe.

Join the ACM and SIGPLAN (special interest group on programming
languages). That'll probably get you on most of the mailing lists.
Subscribe to comp.lang.sigplan and comp.compilers.
