Dynamic Languages Symposium 2012  OOPSLA/SPLASH 2012

Co-located with SPLASH 2012

In association with ACM SIGPLAN

Tucson, Arizona, USA, October 22, 2012


Call for papers

The 8th Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at SPLASH 2012 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 JavaScript, Python, Ruby, PHP, Tcl, Lua, and Clojure 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 2012 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:

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, length, and originality.

Papers should be of a length appropriate to their content: a shorter paper may be sufficient to describe a smaller but still significant result, and no paper will be rated poorly solely based on its length.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

Papers are to be submitted electronically at http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=dls12 in PDF format. Submissions should not exceed 12 pages and need to use the ACM format, templates for which can be found at http://drupal.sigplan.org/Resources/Author.
