DSLDI 2016

Fourth Workshop on
Domain-Specific Language Design and Implementation

October 31, 2016
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Co-located with SPLASH

Deadline for talk proposals: August 1, 2016

*** Workshop Goal ***

Well-designed and implemented domain-specific languages (DSLs) can achieve both
usability and performance benefits over general-purpose programming languages.
By raising the level of abstraction and exploiting domain knowledge, DSLs can
make programming more accessible, increase programmer productivity, and support
domain-specific optimizations.

The goal of the DSLDI workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners interested in discussing how DSLs should be designed,
implemented, supported by tools, and applied in realistic contexts. The focus
of the workshop is on all aspects of this process, from soliciting domain
knowledge from experts, through the design and implementation of the language,
to evaluating whether and how a DSL is successful. More generally, we are
interested in continuing to build a community that can drive forward the
development of modern DSLs.

An additional goal of this year's workshop is to encourage discussion about the
usability of DSLs, and to establish connections with researchers in related
areas, such as end-user software engineering, who have studied human factors of
programming languages and tools.

*** Workshop Format ***

DSLDI is a single-day workshop and will consist of moderated audience
discussions structured around a series of talks. The role of the talks is to
facilitate interesting and substantive discussion. Therefore, we welcome and
encourage talks that express strong opinions, describe open problems, propose
new research directions, and report on early research in progress.

Proposed talks should be on topics within DSLDI's area of interest, which
include but are not limited to:

* solicitation and representation of domain knowledge
* DSL design principles and processes
* DSL implementation techniques and language workbenches
* domain-specific optimizations
* human factors of DSLs
* tool support for DSL users
* community and educational support for DSL users
* applications of DSLs to existing and emerging domains
* studies of usability, performance, or other benefits of DSLs
* experience reports of DSLs deployed in practice

*** Call for Submissions ***

We solicit talk proposals in the form of short abstracts (max. 2 pages). A good
talk proposal describes an interesting position, open problem, demonstration,
or early achievement. The submissions will be reviewed on relevance and
clarity, and used to plan the mostly interactive sessions of the workshop day.
Publication of accepted abstracts and slides on the website is voluntary.
