More formally: Should the ACM SIGPLAN Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI) publish its proceedings in the Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages (PACM-PL) journal?
The Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages (PACM-PL) journal launched in 2017, and since then papers from the ICFP, OOPSLA and POPL conferences have been published annually in the journal.
Before the launch of PACM-PL, the reasons for and against the ACM SIGPLAN Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI) joining PACM-PL were blogged about, and the Programming Languages community was surveyed to gather opinions on whether PLDI should also join PACM-PL.
Taking into account the results of this survey, the PLDI Steering Committee voted that PLDI would not join PACM-PL. However, it was agreed that a follow-up survey should take place after several years, to see whether the views of the community on the upsides and downsides of PLDI joining PACM-PL have changed over time.
The follow-up survey is here and is available until the end of June 16, AoE. Thank you for taking the time to complete it.
