Call For Papers

Workshop on Real World Domain Specific Languages

In conjunction with

The International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimisation 2016.

Barcelona, 12-13 March, 2016

As the use of computers proliferates, the complexity and variety of
systems continues to grow. As a result, it is becoming increasingly
inflexible to "hard wire” behaviours into software. Software
developers can enable more control over their software configurations
by exploiting Domain Specific Languages (DSLs). Such DSLs provide a
systematic way to structure the underlying computational components:
to coin a phrase, a DSL is a library with syntax.

There is an enormous variety of DSLs for a very wide range of
domains. Most DSLs are highly idiosyncratic, reflecting both the
specific natures of their application domains and their designers’ own
preferences. This workshop will bring together constructors of DSLs
for “real world” domains; that is, DSLs intended primarily to aid in
building software to solve real world problems rather than to explore
the more theoretical aspects of language design and implementation. We
are looking for submissions that present the motivation, design,
implementation, use and evaluation of such DSLs.
