Dynamic Languages Symposium 2011  

Co-located with SPLASH 2011
In association with ACM SIGPLAN

Portland, Oregon, USA, October 24, 2011

*** 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 in PDF format. Submissions must not exceed 12 pages and need to use the ACM format, templates for which can be found at
