Call for Papers
Dyla 2007: 3rd Workshop on Dynamic Languages and Applications
July 31, 2007, Berlin (Collocated with ECOOP 2007)

http://dyla2007.unibe.ch


Objective

The goal of this workshop is to act as a forum where we can discuss
new advances in the conception, implementation and application of
object-oriented languages that radically diverge from the statically
typed class-based reflectionless doctrine. The goal of the workshop
is to discuss new as well as older “forgotten” languages and features
in this context. Topics of interest include, but are certainly not
limited to:

  • agents, actors, active objects, distribution, concurrency and
    mobility
  • delegation, prototypes, mixins
  • first-class closures, continuations, environments
  • reflection and meta-programming
  • (dynamic) aspects for dynamic languages
  • higher-order objects & messages
  • … other exotic dynamic features which you would categorize as OO
  • multi-paradigm & static/dynamic-marriages
  • (concurrent/distributed/mobile/aspect) virtual machines
  • optimisation of dynamic languages
  • automated reasoning about dynamic languages
  • “regular” syntactic schemes (cf. S-expressions, Smalltalk, Self)
  • Smalltalk, Python, Ruby, Scheme, Lisp, Self, ABCL, Prolog, …
  • … any topic relevant in applying and/or supporting dynamic
    languages.

We solicit high-quality submissions on research results
and/or experience. Submitted papers must be unpublished
and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions
should not exceed 10 pages, LNCS format (www.springer.com/lncs).

Submission

Prospective attendees are requested to submit a position paper or an
essay (max 10 pages, references included) on a topic relevant to the
workshop to Alexandre Bergel ([email protected]).
Submissions are demanded to be in .pdf format and should arrive
before May 13, 2007.

A selection of the best papers will be made, which will require an
extension for an inclusion in a special issue in Electronic
Communications of the EASST (eceasst.cs.tu-berlin.de). For this
purpose, a new deadline will be set after the workshop.

Moreover, Springer publishes a Workshop-Reader (as in the case of
previous ECOOPs) which appears after the Conference and which
contains Workshop-Reports (written by the organizers) and not the
position papers submitted by the participants.

Important dates

May 27, 2007: deadline for the workshop submissions. Submissions
should follow LNCS format (www.springer.com/lncs) and should be
sorter than 10 pages. extended deadline

June 12-13, 2007: Author notification of their submission

June 15, 2007: ECOOP’07 Early Registration

July 31, 2007: Workshop

August 05, 2007: Selection of best papers for Electronic
Communications of the EASST

September 10, 2007: deadline for revised and extended version of
submission for the communications.
