The ACM International Conference on Principles and Practice of Programming In Java (PPPJ 2008) aims at drawing together researchers, teachers, practitioners, and programmers who study or work with the Java language, in order to discuss the principles and practice of its use in a friendly and fertile academic environment.
PPPJ 2008 is organized by the Departement of Ingegneria dell'Informazione (Computer Science and Engineering). The PPPJ 2008 conference will be held at the Faculty of Engineering ( University of Modena and Reggio Emilia). PPPJ 2008 is organized in co-operation with the SIGAPP and SIGPLAN special interest groups of ACM. The authors of the best papers at PPPJ 2008 will be invited to publish in Elsevier's Science of Computer Programming.
Java has established a dominant position as the major programming language for a wide variety of application areas. The language continues to evolve, while new APIs, libraries and tools continue to be developed. We invite papers which cover all aspects of programming in Java. Both research papers and experience reports are welcome. Please see the call for papers for a list of relevant topics and submission information.
As in the previous editions of PPPJ, the official conference proceedings volume will be published in the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series. The authors of the best papers at the conference will be invited to provide an extended version of their paper for publication in Elsevier's Science of Computer Programming.
