Lightweight Languages Worshop 2002 (LL2) ----------------------------------
Saturday, November 9, 2002, MIT, Cambridge, MA http://ll2.ai.mit.edu mailto:email@example.com
CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
LL2 will be an intense, exciting, one-day forum bringing together the best programming language implementors and researchers, from both academia and industry, to exchange ideas and information, to challenge one another, and to learn from one another.
The focus of the workshop is not whether or not a particular language is "lightweight", but how to get usable and useful programming tools into the hands of programmers, minimizing dogma, and maximizing flexibility.
Proposal Abstracts - due Tuesday Oct. 8: ------------------
We are seeking two to five page abstracts of talks to be given at the workshop. There will be two talk lengths:
(1) Rapid Fire: 10 minutes strict time limit. (2) Regular: 30 minutes.
Some suggested topics are:
* Success or failure stories: History and analysis of: - language design: features that either worked out great or were a curse, - language implementation: clever implementation ideas that either worked or failed miserably, - application war stories involving lightweight languages.
* "From scripts to programs" - software engineering with lightweight and/or a mix of languages. How to (or not to!) scale from little scripts to large, complex applications.
* From ivory tower to cube - what language implementors need to know from academic programming languages research.
* and back.
Indicate whether you intend the talk to be a 10 minute or a 30 minute talk.
Send submissions to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We want presentations that will inspire, motivate, and educate. We want language implementors and researchers to leave the workshop fired up with ideas for future languages, features, and implementation tricks. We want language users to leave the workshop fired up with new ideas and new tools.
In addition to submitted presentations, there will be a number of invited talks, and a panel or debate. After the workshop, there will be an evening social event and dinner.
Last year's workshop is online at http://ll1.mit.edu.
Dates: Tuesday, Oct. 8 - submissions due by end of day. Tuesday, Oct. 15 - notification of acceptance Saturday, Nov. 9, 9am-7pm - LL2!
