21th Workshop on Formal Techniques for Java-like Programs

Formal techniques can help analyze programs, precisely describe program behavior, and verify program properties. Languages such as Java, C#, and Scala are interesting targets for formal techniques due to their ubiquity and wide user base, stable and well-defined interfaces and platforms, and powerful (but also complex) libraries. New languages and applications in this space are continually arising, resulting in new PL research challenges.

Work on formal techniques and tools and on the formal underpinnings of programming languages themselves naturally complement each other. FTfJP is an established workshop which has run annually since 1999 alongside ECOOP, with the goal of bringing together people working in both fields. The workshop has a broad PL theme; the most important criterion is that submissions will generate interesting discussions within this community. Example topics of interest include:

  • Language design and semantics
  • Type systems
  • Concurrency and new application domains
  • Specification and verification of program properties
  • Program analysis (static or dynamic)
  • Security
  • Pearls (programs or proofs)

FTfJP welcomes submissions on technical contributions, case studies, experience reports, challenge proposals, and position papers. Just as the number and the feature set of Java-like languages is expanding, the term “Java-like” should be interpreted broadly.
