============================================================================ 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, unreliable, and suitable only for small throw-away tasks. However, their ability to aid 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 dynamic programming languages, managers are interested in finding out how they can complement existing approved languages without diluting their organizations' 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 languages into their existing language menagerie. * Experiences of and techniques for using dynamic programming languages 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, reflection, dynamic reconfigurability, and mobility. For detailed author guidelines, please visit: http://www.computer.org/software/author.htm Manuscripts must not exceed 5,400 words including figures and tables, which count for 200 words each. Submissions in excess of these limits may be rejected without refereeing. The articles we deem within the theme's scope will be peer-reviewed and are subject to editing for magazine style, clarity, organization, and space. For more information, please contact the Guest Editors Laurence Tratt and Roel Wuyts at firstname.lastname@example.org.
