7th Workshop on Advances in Programming Languages

by Maria João Varanda Pereira, Jan. 29, 2019

Programming languages are programmers' most basic tools. With appropriate programming languages one can drastically reduce
the cost of building new applications as well as maintaining
existing ones. In the last decades there have been many advances
in programming languages technology in traditional programming
paradigms such as functional, logic, and object-oriented programming, as well as the development of new paradigms such as aspect-oriented programming. The main driving force was and will be to better express programmers' ideas. Therefore, research in programming languages is an endless activity and the core of computer science. New language features, new programming paradigms, and better compile-time and run-time mechanisms can be foreseen in the future.

The aim of this event is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and experience in topics concerned with programming languages and systems. Original papers and implementation reports are invited in all areas of programming languages.

SCOPE & TOPICS

Programming languages are programmers' most basic tools. With
appropriate programming languages one can drastically reduce
the cost of building new applications as well as maintaining
existing ones. In the last decades there have been many advances
in programming languages technology in traditional programming
paradigms such as functional, logic, and object-oriented programming,
as well as the development of new paradigms such as aspect-oriented
programming. The main driving force was and will be to better express
programmers' ideas. Therefore, research in programming languages is
an endless activity and the core of computer science. New language
features, new programming paradigms, and better compile-time
and run-time mechanisms can be foreseen in the future.

The aim of this event is to provide a forum for exchange of ideas and
experience in topics concerned with programming languages and systems.
Original papers and implementation reports are invited in all areas of
programming languages. Major topics of interest include but are not
limited to the following:

  + Automata theory and applications
  + Compiling techniques
  + Context-oriented programming languages to specify dynamic adaptations
  + Domain-specific languages
  + Formal semantics and syntax
  + Generative and generic programming
  + Grammarware and grammar based systems
  + Green computing
  + Knowledge engineering languages
  + Languages and tools for trustworthy computing
  + Language theory and applications
  + Language concepts, design and implementation
  + Markup languages (XML)
  + Metamodeling and modeling languages
  + Model-driven engineering languages and systems
  + Practical experiences with programming languages
  + Program analysis, optimization and verification
  + Program generation and transformation
  + Programming paradigms (aspect-oriented, functional, logic, object-oriented, etc.)
  + Programming tools and environments
  + Proof theory for programs
  + Specification languages
  + Teaching programming
  + Type systems
  + Virtual machines and just-in-time compilation
  + Visual programming languages
