Extended deadline: CfP IEEE Software Special Issue on Rapid


                    IEEE Software Special Issue
   Rapid Application Development with Dynamically Typed Languages

                          Call for Papers

                Publication: September/October 2007
           Extended submission deadline: 15 February 2007


Dynamically typed programming languages were once seen as slow,
and suitable only for small throw-away tasks. However, their ability to
rapid systems development and to facilitate the pervasive, mobile, and
frequently updated systems that are increasingly in demand in the modern
world has led to their stock rising considerably.

While developers are ever keen to find out more about the details of
programming languages, managers are interested in finding out how they
complement existing approved languages without diluting their
technical focus.

We thus solicit contributions in several areas related to dynamic
programming languages. Topics of interest include:

  • Dynamic programming languages “in use”.
  • Organizations’ experiences in integrating dynamic programming
    into their existing language menagerie.
  • Experiences of and techniques for using dynamic programming
    effectively (including efficiency and scalability concerns).
  • How dynamic programming languages have evolved and how they might
    develop in the future.
  • New techniques in challenging areas such as metaprogramming,
    dynamic reconfigurability, and mobility.

Manuscripts must not exceed 5,400 words including figures and tables,
count for 200 words each. Submissions in excess of these limits may be
rejected without refereeing. The articles we deem within the theme’s
will be peer-reviewed and are subject to editing for magazine style,
clarity, organization, and space.
