We are pleased to invite students interested in programming languages to the Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop (PLMW) at SPLASH. The goal of this workshop is to introduce senior undergraduate and early graduate students to research topics in programming languages as well as provide career mentoring advice. We have recruited leaders from the programming languages community to provide overviews of current research topics and give students valuable advice about how to thrive in graduate school, search for a job, and cultivate habits and skills that will help them in research careers.
This workshop is part of the activities surrounding SPLASH, and takes place the day before the main conference. A key goal of the workshop is to make SPLASH more accessible to newcomers.
Through the generous donation of our sponsors, we are able to provide travel scholarships to fund student participation. These travel scholarships will cover reasonable travel expenses (airfare and hotel) for attendance at both the workshop and the following main three days of SPLASH.
The workshop is open to all. Students with alternative sources of funding for their travel and registration fees are welcome. In particular, many student attendance programs provide full or partial travel funding for students to attend SPLASH 2016.
