Dynamic Languages Symposium 2006 - Technical Papers

Call for papers

Portland, Oregon, United States, October 22, 2006


The Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at OOPSLA 2006 is a forum for  
discussion of dynamic languages, their implementation and  
application. While mature dynamic languages including Smalltalk,  
Lisp, Scheme, and Prolog continue to grow and inspire new converts, a  
new generation of dynamic scripting languages such as Python, Ruby,  
PHP, and JavaScript are successful in a wide range of applications.  
DLS provides a place for researchers and practitioners to come  
together and share their knowledge, experience, and ideas for future  
research and development.

The Technical Papers track of DLS 2006 invites high quality papers  
reporting original research, innovative contributions or experience  
related to dynamic languages, their implementation and application.  
Accepted Papers will be published in the OOPSLA conference companion  
and the ACM Digital Library.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to

* Reflection and meta-programming
* Very late binding, dynamic composition, and runtime adaptation
* Actors and active objects
* Innovative language features and implementation techniques
* Development and platform support, tools
* Language symbiosis and multi-paradigm languages
* Experience reports and case studies
* Interesting applications
* Educational approaches and perspectives
* Domain-oriented programming
* Object-oriented, aspect-oriented, and context-oriented programming

Submissions and proceedings

We invite original contributions that neither have been published  
previously nor are under review by other refereed events or  
publications. Research papers should describe work that advances the  
current state of the art. Experience papers should be of broad  
interest and should describe insights gained from substantive  
practical applications. The program committee will evaluate each  
contributed paper based on its relevance, significance, clarity, and  

Papers are to be submitted electronically at http://www.dcl.hpi.uni- 
potsdam.de/node2006/ in PDF format. Submissions must not exceed 12  
pages and need to use the ACM format, templates for which can be  
found at http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html.
