SPLASH 2013
Sat 26 - Thu 31 October 2013 Indianapolis, United States

The 9th Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at SPLASH 2013 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 JavaScript, Python, Ruby, PHP, Tcl, Lua, and Clojure 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.

The ACM International Conference on Systems, Programming, Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity (SPLASH) is sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN.

SPLASH is the home of OOPSLA Research Papers, Onward!, and the Dynamic Languages Symposium, among other events.

DLS 2013 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

Selection Process

Submission

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, length, and originality.

Papers should be of a length appropriate to their content: a shorter paper may be sufficient to describe a smaller but still significant result, and no paper will be rated poorly solely based on its length.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

Papers are to be submitted electronically at http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=dls13 in PDF format. Submissions should not exceed 12 pages and need to use the ACM format, templates for which can be found at http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm.

The above dates are preliminary, final dates will be announced.
