=== Objectives and Scope ===

Formal techniques can help analyse programs, precisely describe program
behaviour, and verify program properties. Modern programming languages
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 programming
languages (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.
The term “Java-like” is somewhat historic and should be interpreted
broadly: FTfJP solicits and welcomes submissions relating to programming
languages in general, beyond Java, including submissions related to C#,
Scala, and similar languages, and submissions on more general topics
that may be relevant to such languages.

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)
 * Program synthesis
 * Security
 * Pearls (programs or proofs)

FTfJP welcomes submissions on technical contributions, case studies,
experience reports, challenge proposals, and position papers.

=== Paper Categories ===

Contributions are sought in two categories:

 * Full Papers (6 pages, excluding references) present a technical
   contribution, case study, or detailed experience report. We welcome
   both complete and incomplete technical results; ongoing work is
   particularly welcome, provided it is substantial enough to stimulate
   interesting discussions.

 * Short Papers (2 pages, excluding references) should advocate a
   promising research direction, or otherwise present a position likely
   to stimulate discussion at the workshop. We encourage, e.g.,
   established researchers to set out a personal vision, and beginning
   researchers to present a planned path to a Ph.D.

Both types of contributions will benefit from feedback received at the
workshop. Submissions will be peer reviewed, and will be evaluated based
on their clarity and their potential to generate interesting
discussions. Reviewing will be single blind, there is no need to
anonymize submissions.

The format of the workshop encourages interaction. FTfJP is a forum in
which a wide range of people share their expertise, from experienced
researchers to beginning PhD students.

=== Submission Guidelines ===

All submissions and reviews will be managed within EasyChair.
Submissions should be made via


There is no need to indicate the paper category (long/short).

Submissions should be in acmart/sigplan style, 10pt font. Formatting
requirements are detailed on the SIGPLAN Author Information page

We plan that, as in previous years, accepted papers will be published in
the ACM Digital Library, though authors will be able to opt out of this
publication, if desired. At least one author of an accepted paper must
register to the conference by the early registration date and attend the
workshop to present the work and participate in the discussions.

Selected papers will also be considered for extended versions to be
submitted to the Journal of Object Technology (JOT).
