James Noble-3
Dynamic Languages Symposium 2009

October 26, 2009

Co-located with OOPSLA 2009
Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN
Disney's Contemporary Resort, Orlando, Florida

***** Call for papers *****

The 5th Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at OOPSLA 2009 is a forum  
for discussion of dynamic languages, their implementation and  
application. While mature dynamic languages including Smalltalk, Lisp,  
Scheme, Self, Prolog, and APL continue to grow and inspire new  
converts, a new generation of dynamic scripting languages such as  
Python, Ruby, PHP, Tcl, 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.

DLS 2009 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 ACM Digital Library.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

* Innovative language features and implementation techniques
* Development and platform support, tools
* Interesting applications
* Domain-oriented programming
* Very late binding, dynamic composition, and runtime adaptation
* Reflection and meta-programming
* Software evolution
* Language symbiosis and multi-paradigm languages
* Dynamic optimization
* Hardware support
* Experience reports and case studies
* Educational approaches and perspectives
* 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  

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

Papers are to be submitted electronically at 
  in PDF format. Submissions must not exceed 12 pages and need to use  
the ACM format, templates for which can be found at 

=== Important dates ===

Submission of papers: June 1, 2009 (hard deadline)
Author notification: July 13, 2009
Final versions due: August 4, 2009
DLS 2009: October 26
