Dynamic Languages Symposium 2014  OOPSLA/SPLASH 2014

Co-located with SPLASH 2014

In association with ACM SIGPLAN

Portland, Oregon, USA, October 21, 2014


Call for papers

The 10th Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at SPLASH 2014 is the premier forum for researchers and practitioners to share knowledge and research on dynamic languages, their implementation, and applications. The influence of dynamic languages -- from Lisp to Smalltalk to Python to Javascript -- on real-world practice and research continues to grow.

DLS 2014 invites high quality papers reporting original research, innovative contributions, or experience related to dynamic languages, their implementation, and applications. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library, and freely available for 2 weeks before and after the event itself.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

Submissions and proceedings

Submissions should not have been published previously nor under review at other events. 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 are to be submitted electronically at http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=dls14 in PDF format. Submissions must be in the ACM format (see http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm) and not exceed 12 pages. Authors are reminded that brevity is a virtue.

DLS 2014 will run a two-phase reviewing process to help authors make their final papers the best that they can be. After the first round of reviews, papers will be rejected, conditionally accepted, or unconditionally accepted. Conditionally accepted papers will be given a list of issues raised by reviewers. Authors will then submit a revised version of the paper with a cover letter explaining how they have or why they have not addressed these issues. The reviewers will then consider the cover letter and revised paper and recommend final acceptance or rejection.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
