Dynamic Languages Symposium 2006 - Technical Papers (CfP)

Robert Hirschfeld
Dynamic Languages Symposium 2006 - Technical Papers

Call for papers

Portland, Oregon, United States, October 22, 2006


The Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at OOPSLA 2006 is a forum for
discussion of dynamic languages, their implementation and application.
While mature dynamic languages including Smalltalk, Lisp, Scheme, and
Prolog continue to grow and inspire new converts, a new generation of
dynamic scripting languages such as Python, Ruby, PHP, and JavaScript
are successful in a wide range of applications. DLS provides a place for
researchers and practitioners to come together and share their
knowledge, experience, and ideas for future research and development.

The Technical Papers track of DLS 2006 invites high quality papers
reporting original research, innovative contributions or experience
related to dynamic languages, their implementation and application.
Accepted Papers will be published in the OOPSLA conference companion and
the ACM Digital Library.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to

* Reflection and meta-programming
* Very late binding, dynamic composition, and runtime adaptation
* Actors and active objects
* Innovative language features and implementation techniques
* Development and platform support, tools
* Language symbiosis and multi-paradigm languages
* Experience reports and case studies
* Interesting applications
* Educational approaches and perspectives
* Domain-oriented programming
* Object-oriented, aspect-oriented, and context-oriented programming

Submissions and proceedings

We invite original contributions that neither have been published
previously nor are under review by other refereed events or
publications. Research papers should describe work that advances the
current state of the art. Experience papers should be of broad interest
and should describe insights gained from substantive practical
applications. The program committee will evaluate each contributed paper
based on its relevance, significance, clarity, and originality.

Papers are to be submitted electronically at
http://www.dcl.hpi.uni-potsdam.de/node2006/ in PDF format. Submissions
need to use the ACM format, templates for which can be found at
