6th Workshop on Advances in Programming Languages (WAPL'17)

Prague, Czech Republic, 3 - 6 September, 2017

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 aims 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.

Topics

Major topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

  • Automata theory and applications
  • Compiling techniques
  • Context-oriented programming languages to specify the behavior of software systems and dynamic adaptations
  • Domain-specific languages
  • Formal semantics and syntax
  • Generative and generic programming
  • Grammarware and grammar based systems
  • Knowledge engineering languages, integration of knowledge engineering and software engineering
  • 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
  • Type systems
  • Virtual machines and just-in-time compilation
  • Visual programming languages

Best Paper Award

To celebrate WAPL's 10 years old, the 1st edition was in 2007, a Best Paper award will be offered to distinguish a work of high quality presented in the workshop. Award comprises a certificate for the authors and will be announced during the conference dinner.

Keynote Speakers
