The Programming Languages and Systems (PLaS) research group spans the breadth
and depth of practical and theoretical aspects of programming languages and
system building related to languages. Our work goes across paradigms
(imperative, object-oriented, functional, logic) and is complemented by our
systems research in concurrency, relaxed memory, verified compilation,
verification, language prototypes, garbage collection, and tools. All our
work is linked by a shared vision of the power and impact of programming
languages on the rest of Computer Science. The PLaS group at Kent has a long
history of contributions to the field and continues to be a hotbed of
programming language research in the South East of England:

centre. Canterbury is a small city that retains parts of its medieval walls
(with Roman foundations). Famous for its heritage (Canterbury Cathedral;
Chaucer’s Tales; etc), Canterbury is a vibrant community and UNESCO World
Heritage site whose culture and leisure facilities are enhanced by hosting
three universities. With 125 nationalities represented, the Canterbury campus
has a very cosmopolitan feel. The city and surrounding region combines an
attractive and affordable environment, outstanding schools, and fast
transport links to London and mainland Europe.
