Dynamic Languages Symposium 2008

Co-located with ECOOP 2008, Paphos, Cyprus, July 8, 2008
Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN

Submission deadline: April 25, 2008 (hard deadline)
Author notification: May 23, 2008
Camera-ready copy due: June 6, 2008
DLS 2008: July 11 (to be finalized)

The Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at ECOOP 2008 in Paphos, Cyprus,
is a forum for discussion of dynamic languages, their implementation
and application. While mature dynamic languages including Smalltalk,
Lisp, Scheme, Self, Prolog, and APL continue to grow and inspire new
converts, a new generation of dynamic scripting languages such as
Python, Ruby, PHP, Tcl, 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.

DLS 2008 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 ACM Digital Library.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

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

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 =
in PDF format. Submissions must not exceed 12 pages and need to use
the ACM format, templates for which can be found at =

Accepted Papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
