Certified Programs and Proofs (CPP) is an international forum on
theoretical and practical topics in all areas, including computer
science, mathematics, and education, that consider certification as an
essential paradigm for their work. Certification here means formal,
mechanized verification of some sort, preferably with production of
independently checkable certificates.

In 2019, CPP will be co­located with Principles of Programming
Languages (POPL) in Cascais/Lisbon, Portugal.

Important Dates (AoE, UTC-12h)

     Abstract Deadline: Wednesday, 11 October 2018
     Paper Submission Deadline: Wednesday, 18 October 2018
     Author Notification: Wednesday, 22 November 2018
     Conference dates: 14 January - 15 January 2019

Topics of interest

We welcome submissions in research areas related to formal
certification of programs and proofs. The following is a suggested
list of topics of interests to CPP. This is a non-exhaustive list and
should be read as a guideline rather than a requirement.

  - certified or certifying programming, compilation, linking, OS
    kernels, runtime systems, and security monitors;
  - program logics, type systems, and semantics for certified code;
  - certified decision procedures, mathematical libraries, and
    mathematical theorems;
  - proof assistants and proof theory;
  - new languages and tools for certified programming;
  - program analysis, program verification, and proof-carrying code;
  - certified secure protocols and transactions;
  - certificates for decision procedures, including linear algebra,
    polynomial systems, SAT, SMT, and unification in algebras of
  - certificates for semi-decision procedures, including equality,
    first-order logic, and higher-order unification;
  - certificates for program termination;
  - logics for certifying concurrent and distributed programs;
  - higher-order logics, logical systems, separation logics, and
    logics for security;
  - teaching mathematics and computer science with proof assistants.

Submission Guidelines

Papers should be submitted in PDF format through the EasyChair
submission page at


Submitted papers must be formatted following the ACM SIGPLAN
Proceedings format using the acmart format with the sigplan option,
using 10 point font for the main text, and a header for single blind
review submission, e.g.,


Submitted papers should not exceed 12 pages, including tables and
figures, but excluding bibliography. Shorter papers are welcome and
will be given equal consideration.

Submissions must be written in English and provide sufficient detail
to allow the program committee to assess the merits of the paper. They
should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of the
main results, and a brief explanation of their significance and
relevance to the conference, all phrased for the
non-specialist. Technical and formal developments directed to the
specialist should follow. References and comparisons with related work
should be included. Submitted papers are not allowed to have an
appendix. Papers not conforming to the above requirements concerning
format and length may be rejected without further consideration.

Whenever appropriate, the submission should come along with a formal
development, using whatever prover, e.g., Agda, Coq, Dafny, Elf, HOL,
HOL-Light, Isabelle, Lean, Matita, Mizar, NQTHM, PVS, Vampire,
etc. Such formal developments must be submitted together with the
paper as auxiliary material, and will be taken into account during the
reviewing process. Please do so by including a link to your files in
the text of your paper, or by sending a zip or tar file to the PC
chairs at cpp2019 at easychair.org with your paper number included in the
subject of your email.

The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication
elsewhere, including the proceedings of other published conferences or
workshops. The PC chairs should be informed of closely related work
submitted to a conference or journal in advance of
submission. Original formal proofs of known results in mathematics or
computer science are welcome. One author of each accepted paper is
expected to present it at the conference.

For any questions about the formatting or submission of papers, please
consult the PC chairs (cpp2019 at easychair.org).
