What is PLMW?
The Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop (PLMW) aims to encourage graduate students and senior undergraduate students to pursue careers in programming language research. The workshop brings together world leaders in programming languages research and teaching from academia and industry to provide (a) technical sessions on cutting edge PL research and (b) mentoring sessions on how to prepare for a research career. The workshop aims to engage students in a process of imagining how they might contribute to our research community. We especially encourage women and under-represented minority students and students with disabilities to attend PLMW.
After the resounding success of the first five Programming Languages Mentoring Workshops at POPL 2012 - 2016, the 6th SIGPLAN Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop will be co-located with POPL 2017 in Paris, France. PLMW will be held immediately before POPL on Tuesday, January 17. PLMW 2017 is open for registration to all students interested in programming languages research (funded or not).
Attending and social activities
Accommodation for all funded students will be provided at the Kellermann Centre. On the evening of the 17th, after the last PLMW session, organizers, speakers, and panellists plan to form groups with students and have dinner together in nearby restaurants, where the PLMW discussions can continue in a more casual setting.
