Sounds like this could be of interest for PyPy development (and/or
funding?), especially since the program committee is highly aware
of Python, already! ;-)

> Lightweight Languages Workshop 2003 (LL3)
> Saturday, November 8, 2003, MIT, Cambridge, MA
> http://ll3.ai.mit.edu/ mailto:ll3 at ai.mit.edu
> CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS
> LL3 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 workshop series focuses on programming languages, tools, and
> processes that are usable and useful. Lightweight languages have been
> an effective vehicle for introducing new features to mainstream
> We encourage presentations on topics of interest to the community of
> lightweight language users and designers. We prefer topics that will
> interest a broad audience. We do not require the presentation of
> novel research ideas.
> Proposal Abstracts
> Due Friday Oct. 17
> We seek two to five page abstracts of talks to be given at the
> workshop. Talks will be 30 minutes long, including time for
> questions and answers. Presenters are not expected to submit
> papers, but slides will be published on the workshop web site.
> We will also consider proposals for talks of different lengths.
> Some suggested topics are:
> * Language design: New language features, type systems and other
> reasoning tools, critiques of existing languages.
> * Implementation techniques: Interpreters and virtual machines,
> optimizations, cross-language interactions.
> * 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.
> Application war stories.
> * From ivory tower to cubicle -- what language implementors need
> to know from academic programming languages research -- and
> * Lightweight pearls: Elegant and instructive examples of
> programs in lightweight languages.
> * Programming tools and development processes.
> Send submissions to: ll3-submit at ai.mit.edu
> 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 two invited
> talks. After the workshop, there will be an evening social event and
> Dates: Tuesday, Oct. 17 -- submissions due by end of day.
> Tuesday, Oct. 24 -- notification of acceptance or rejection
> Saturday, Nov. 8 -- 9am-7pm, LL3!
> Program Committee:
> Ken Anderson, BBN (co-chair)
> Jeremy Hylton, Python Software Foundation (co-chair)
> Geoffrey Knauth, BAE Systems
> Shriram Krishnamurthi, Brown University
> Erik Meijer, Microsoft Research
