Welcome to the 2011 Dynamic Languages Symposium. This year’s symposium is the 7th of its kind and continues the tradition of being the premier forum for advances in dynamic programming languages.

We received 19 submissions out of which our program committee accepted nine papers. They cover languages from Scheme to JavaScript but also more general aspects of dynamic languages such as just-in-time compilation, memory management, types and type inference, and of course parallel processing.

The symposium hosts two invited speakers—Gilad Bracha will kick off DLS 2011 and speak about the Dart programming language; in the afternoon David Ungar will challenge your knowledge about parallel programming.

DLS 2011 promises to fill a full day with new and exciting material. It is bound to live up to its name and offer a truly dynamic program. Most of all we hope that the symposium will provide you with an opportunity to share ideas with other dynamic language researchers and practitioners from institutions around the world.

Call for Papers

The 7th Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at SPLASH 2011 is a forum for discussion of dynamic languages, their implementation and application. While mature dynamic languages including Smalltalk, Lisp, Scheme, Self, Prolog, and APL continue to grow and inspire new converts, a new generation of dynamic scripting languages such as Python, Ruby, PHP, Tcl, Lua, and JavaScript are successful in a wide range of applications. DLS provides a place for researchers and practitioners to come together and share their knowledge, experience, and ideas for future research and development.

DLS 2011 invites high quality papers reporting original research, innovative contributions or experience related to dynamic languages, their implementation and application. Accepted Papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Innovative language features and implementation techniques
  • Development and platform support, tools
  • Interesting applications
  • Domain-oriented programming
  • Very late binding, dynamic composition, and runtime adaptation
  • Reflection and meta-programming
  • Software evolution
  • Language symbiosis and multi-paradigm languages
  • Dynamic optimization
  • Hardware support
  • Experience reports and case studies
  • Educational approaches and perspectives
  • Object-oriented, aspect-oriented, and context-oriented programming

Submissions and proceedings

We invite original contributions that neither have been published previously nor are under review by other refereed events or publications. Research papers should describe work that advances the current state of the art. Experience papers should be of broad interest and should describe insights gained from substantive practical applications. The program committee will evaluate each contributed paper based on its relevance, significance, clarity, and originality.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

Papers are to be submitted electronically at http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=dls11 in PDF format. Submissions must not exceed 12 pages and need to use the ACM format, templates for which can be found at http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm.
