                         Call for Participation
    The Sixth Asian Symposium on Programming Languages and Systems
                    December 9 - December 11, 2008
                           Bangalore, India

Scope of the Conference

APLAS aims at stimulating programming language research by providing a
forum for the presentation of recent results and the exchange of ideas
and experience in topics concerned with programming languages and
systems.  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 recently been founded by Asian
researchers in cooperation with many researchers from Europe and the
USA.  The past formal APLAS symposiums were successfully held in
Singapore (2007), 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 symposiums are published in
Springer-Verlag's LNCS.

Conference Location

APLAS'08 will be held at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, India,
as part of the institute's centenary celebrations and is co-located
with FSTTCS 2008 (Foundations of Software Technology and Theoretical Computer
