The PEPM Symposium/Workshop series aims at bringing together
researchers and practitioners working in the areas of program
manipulation, partial evaluation, and program generation. PEPM focuses
on techniques, theory, tools, and applications of analysis and
manipulation of programs. PEPM is classified as category A in the CORE
ranking of ICT conferences.

The 2009 PEPM workshop will be based on a broad interpretation of
semantics-based program manipulation and continue last years'
successful effort to expand the scope of PEPM significantly beyond the
traditionally covered areas of partial evaluation and specialization
and include practical applications of program transformations such as
refactoring tools, and practical implementation techniques such as
rule-based transformation systems. In addition, the scope of PEPM
covers manipulation and transformations of program and system
representations such as structural and semantic models that occur in
the context of model-driven development. In order to reach out to
practitioners, a separate category of tool demonstration papers will
be solicited.

Topics of interest for PEPM'09 include, but are not limited to:

* Program and model manipulation techniques such as transformations
   driven by rules, patterns, or analyses, partial evaluation,
   specialization, program inversion, program composition, slicing,
   symbolic execution, refactoring, aspect weaving, decompilation, and

* Program analysis techniques that are used to drive program/model
   manipulation such as abstract interpretation, static analysis,
   binding-time analysis, dynamic analysis, constraint solving, and
   type systems.

* Analysis and transformation for programs/models with advanced
   features such as objects, generics, ownership types, aspects,
   reflection, XML type systems, component frameworks, and middleware.

* Techniques that treat programs/models as data objects including
   meta-programming, generative programming, staged computation, and
   model-driven program generation and transformation.

* Application of the above techniques including experimental studies,
   engineering needed for scalability, and benchmarking. Examples of
   application domains include legacy program understanding and
   transformation, domain-specific language implementations, scientific
   computing, middleware frameworks and infrastructure needed for
   distributed and web-based applications, resource-limited
   computation, and security.

We especially encourage papers that break new ground including
descriptions of how program/model manipulation tools can be integrated
into realistic software development processes, descriptions of robust
tools capable of effectively handling realistic applications, and new
areas of application such as rapidly evolving systems, distributed and
webbased programming including middleware manipulation, model-driven
development, and on-the-fly program adaptation driven by run-time or
statistical analysis.


Regular Research Papers must not exceed 10 pages in ACM Proceedings
style. Tool demonstration papers must not exceed 4 pages in ACM
Proceedings style. At least one author of each accepted contribution
must attend the workshop and present the work. In the case of tool
demonstration papers, a live demonstration of the described tool is
expected. Suggested topics, evaluation criteria, and writing
guidelines for both research tool demonstration papers will be made
available on the PEPM'09 Web-site. Papers should be submitted
electronically via the workshop web site. The workshop proceedings
will be published in the ACM Digital Library. A journal special issue
dedicated to PEPM'09 including selected papers is under consideration.
