Dynamic Languages Symposium 2019  OOPSLA/SPLASH 2019

Co-located with SPLASH 2019

In association with ACM SIGPLAN

Athens, Greece, October 20, 2019


It is a pleasure to welcome you to the 15thedition of the Dynamic Language Symposium (DLS 2019), co-located with SPLASH 2019 in Athens, Greece.

Dynamic Languages play a fundamental role in today’s world of software, from the perspective of research and practice. Languages such as JavaScript, R, and Python are vehicles for cutting edge research as well as building widely used products and computational tools. Their long standing tradition building on Lisp, Snobol, Smalltalk and other languages influenced programming research and practice fundamentally.

As the premier forum, DLS aims to enable researchers and practitioners to share research results and general experience on all aspects of dynamic languages. This year we received fourteen high-quality submissions reporting original research and experience related to the design, implementation, and applications of dynamic languages. Six research papers and three experience reports have been accepted for presentation covering implementation of systems and tools, memory management, and parallelism.

As in previous years, reviewing was done with a two-round process. The second phase allowed a strong interaction between the authors and the Program Committee, which not only selected the papers but contributed to improve them.

We are very happy to host a keynote by Michael Lippautz titled: Untangling the web: Memory management in Chrome’s web platform implementation

We warmly thank the Program Committee, the SPLASH organization, the authors, and, last but not least, the audience.
