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)
>           ----------------------------------
>

>             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
> programmers.
>
> 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
>       back.
>
>     * 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
> dinner.
>
> Dates:  Tuesday, Oct. 17 -- submissions due by end of day.
>         Tuesday, Oct. 24 -- notification of acceptance or rejection
>         Saturday, Nov. 8 -- 9am-7pm, LL3!
