We've extended the deadline for DSLDI talk proposals until the 24th.


DSLDI 2018

Sixth Workshop on
Domain-Specific Language Design and Implementation

November 6th, 2018
Boston, USA
Co-located with SPLASH


Deadline for talk proposals: 24th of August, 2018, AoE

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.

## Workshop Goal

Domain-Specific Language Design and Implementation (DSLDI) is a
workshop intended 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.

## Workshop Format

DSLDI is a single-day workshop and will consist of an invited speaker
followed by moderated audience discussions structured around a series
of short 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 DSLDIā€™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 Talk Proposals

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.

* Deadline for talk proposals: August 17th, 2018
