IBM Programming Languages and Development Environments Seminar 2010
IBM Research - Haifa
April 14, 2010

Call for Contribution

The PLDE seminar provides an Israeli and global forum for industrial and academic innovation in the field of programming languages and development environments. Participants will enjoy both free lunch and free registration for the event, scheduled for mid-April in Haifa.
As usual, the schedule will include exciting presentations and ample opportunity to meet, mingle, and share ideas.  Among the special events planned for the seminar are two keynote talks that will provide retrospective evaluations of two of today's most popular programming languages -- one by Gilad Bracha (on Java) and the other by Zeev Suraski with an introduction by Micky Rodeh (on PHP).

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Programming paradigms
  • Software development environments, methods, and tools
  • Methods and tools for application modernization
  • Business aspects of software development
  • Software process and supporting tools
  • Model-driven development
  • Governance of software development

We invite researchers and practitioners to contribute submissions of different kinds:

  • Technical papers describing relevant research
  • Position papers describing innovative ideas and research in progress
  • Experience reports
  • Demonstrations of techniques and tools
