PLOS 2021 Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems
October 25, 2021, Online Workshop

Paper Submission


PLOS welcomes research, experience, and position papers; papers describing industrial experience are particularly encouraged. All papers must be written in English and should be formatted according to the two-column ACM article style (, using the options sigplan, 10pt). The CCS Concepts, Keywords, and ACM Reference Format sections are not required in submissions. Submissions are single blind: author names and affiliations should be included.

Submissions must not be more than six (6) pages in length, using 10-point font. The bibliography does not count towards the page limit. The page limit will be strictly enforced, and shorter papers are encouraged. Papers must be submitted in PDF format via the workshop website. They will be reviewed by the workshop program committee and designated external reviewers. Papers will be evaluated based on technical quality, originality, relevance, and presentation.

By default, accepted papers will be published electronically in the ACM Digital Library. The authors of accepted papers to be included in the ACM Digital Library will be required to sign ACM copyright release forms. The publication of a paper in the PLOS workshop proceedings is not intended to replace future conference publication.
