The CoqPL workshop series is an opportunity for programming languages researchers to meet and interact with one another and with members from the core Coq development team. We will discuss upcoming new features, see talks and demonstrations of exciting current projects, solicit feedback for potential future changes, and work to strengthen the vibrant community around our favorite proof assistant.

Topics in Scope

  • Formalizations of PL research in Coq
  • Experience reports from Coq users in research, education, and industry
  • General-purpose libraries and tactic language extensions
  • Domain-specific libraries for programming language formalization and verification
  • IDEs, profilers, tracers, debuggers, and testing tools

Workshop Format

The workshop format will be driven by you, members of the community. We will solicit abstracts for talks and proposals for demonstrations and flesh out format details based on responses. We expect the final program to include experiment reports, panel discussions, and invited talks (details TBA). Talks will be selected according to relevance to the workshop, based on the submission of an extended abstract.

To foster open discussion of cutting-edge research that can later be published in full conference proceedings, we will not publish papers from the workshop. However, presentations will be recorded and the videos made publicly available.

Previous Workshop Editions


Submissions for talks and demonstrations should be described in an extended abstract, between 1 and 2 pages in length (excluding bibliography). We suggest formatting the text using the two-column ACM SIGPLAN latex style (9pt font). Templates are available from the ACM SIGPLAN page:
