                          IEEE Software Special Issue
         Rapid Application Development with Dynamically Typed Languages
                                Call for Papers

                      Publication:  September/October 2007
                      Submission Deadline: 1 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

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  

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  
        into their existing language menagerie.
    * Experiences of and techniques for using dynamic programming  
        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,  
        dynamic reconfigurability, and mobility.

For detailed author guidelines, please visit:

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
