Dyla is a successful series of workshop on dynamic languages. As the previous year, It will be collocated with TOOLS EUROPE. The deadline is April 18 for a two-pages submission.
Feel free to ask for more details.
DYLA @ TOOLS EUROPE'11
July 1, 2011, Zürich, Switzerland
Goal and Topics
The goal of this workshop is to act as a forum where we can discuss new advances in the design, implementation and application of dynamically typed languages that, sometimes radically, diverge from the statically typed class-based mainstream with limited reflective capabilities. Another objective of the workshop is to discuss new as well as older "forgotten" languages and features in this context.
Topics of interest include, but are certainly not limited to:
Human aspects of dynamic languages, for example...
-empirical studies about the application of dynamic languages
-best practices and patterns specific to dynamic languages
-program correctness through unit testing (as opposed to types)
-improved or novel IDE support for dynamic languages
-use of dynamic features by library & framework developers
-scripting of static application with dynamic languages
-reverse engineering and analysis of dynamic applications
Technical aspects of dynamic languages, for example...
-what features make a language a dynamic one?
-agents, actors, active object, distribution, concurrency and mobility
-delegation, prototypes, mixins, traits
-first-class closures, continuations, environments
-reflection and meta-programming
-(dynamic) aspects for dynamic languages
-higher-order objects & messages
-...other exotic dynamic features
-multi-paradigm & static/dynamic-marriages
-(concurrent/distributed/mobile/aspect) virtual machines
-optimisation of dynamic languages
-automated reasoning about programs written in dynamic languages
- type systems for dynamic languages, pluggable types, partial typing, type reconstruction...
The workshop will have a demo-oriented style. The idea is to allow participants to demonstrate new and interesting features and discuss what they feel is relevant for the dynamic language community. Participants need to submit a 2-4 page position paper of their work in *ACM sig-alternate.cls>http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates* format. At the workshop, participants will be asked to give 10-minute "lightning demos" of their contributions.
