The Fifth ASIAN Symposium on Programming Languages and Systems (APLAS 2007)
November 29 - December 1, 2007, Singapore



APLAS aims at stimulating programming languages and systems research by providing an international forum for the presentation of original results and the exchange of ideas and experience.

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 first four formal APLAS symposiums were successfully held in 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, and 4279.


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

Original results that bear on these and related topics are solicited. Papers investigating novel uses and applications of language systems are especially encouraged. Authors concerned about the appropriateness of a topic are welcome to consult with the program chair ( prior to submission.
