Call for papers

The 17th Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at SPLASH 2021 is the premier forum for researchers and practitioners to share research and experience on all aspects on dynamic languages.

DLS 2021 invites high quality papers reporting original research and experience related to the design, implementation, and applications of dynamic languages.

Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

Submission Details

Submissions must neither be previously published nor under review at other events. DLS 2021 uses a lightweight double-blind, two-phase reviewing process.

Papers are assumed to be in one of the following categories:

       Research Papers:
              describe work that advances the current state of the art

       Experience Papers:
              describe insights gained from substantive practical
              applications that should be of a broad interest

       Dynamic Pearls:
              describe a known idea in an appealing way to remind the
              community and capture a reader’s interest

The program committee will evaluate each paper based on its relevance, significance, clarity, and originality. The paper category needs to be indicated during submission, and papers are judged accordingly.

Papers are to be submitted electronically in PDF format. Submissions must be in the ACM SIGPLAN conference acmart format, 10 point font, and should not exceed 12 pages. Please see full details in the instructions for authors available at:


DLS 2021 will run a two-phase reviewing process to help authors make their final papers the best that they can be. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library and will be freely available for one month, starting two weeks before the event.
