The seventh New England Programming Languages and Systems Symposium
will take place on Tuesday, October 15, 2002 at Worcester Polytechnic
Institute in Worcester, MA.  Please mark it in your calendars!

The speaker selection committee solicits talks for this meeting.  To
propose yourself or someone else, send a title, list of authors, and
abstract.  (Optionally, you may provide other brief information that
may help the speaker selection committee assess the proposal.)  We
particularly invite talks by researchers from outside the area who are
visiting on the date of the NEPLS meeting.

Talks can vary in length.  Speakers may request slots of 15, 30, 45 or
60 minutes; we encourage the shorter formats.  This variety permits
the presentation of smaller results, preliminary work, progress
reports on ongoing projects (such as language standards and compiler
toolkits), and updates to past presentations.  Students who aren't yet
comfortable giving hour-long talks can use the smaller slots to garner
feedback.  In general, NEPLS talks need not sound like conference

For this symposium, we especially invite contributions to a new
category of five minute presentations on incipient work.  We hope to
feature several such presentations, in a session early in the day, to
encourage discussion, suggestions, debate ...

The submission deadline is Wednesday, September 18, 2002.  Send your proposal
to talks@nepls.org.  (Replying to this message will work in most cases, but
some mailing lists masquerade as your correspondents -- please check before
