ACM SIGPLAN Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop, New Orleans, Louisiana
Tuesday, January 21, 2020
Co-located with POPL 2020

After the success of the first eight Programming Languages Mentoring 
Workshops at POPL 2012-2019 we are announcing the 9th SIGPLAN 
Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop (PLMW), co-located with POPL 
2020 and organized by Stephanie Balzer, Justin Hsu, Robbert Krebbers, 
and Nobuko Yoshida.

The purpose of this mentoring workshop is to encourage graduate students 
and senior undergraduate students to pursue careers in programming 
language research. This workshop will bring together world leaders in 
programming languages research and teaching from academia and industry 
to provide (a) technical sessions on cutting-edge PL research and (b) 
mentoring sessions on how to prepare for a research career. The workshop 
will help students imagine how they might contribute to our research 

We especially encourage women and underrepresented minority students, 
and people with disabilities to attend PLMW.

This workshop is part of the activities surrounding POPL, the Symposium 
on Principles of Programming Languages, and takes place the day before 
the main conference. One goal of the workshop is to make the POPL 
conference more accessible to newcomers. We hope that participants will 
stay through the entire conference.

A number of sponsors (listed below) have generously donated scholarship 
funds for qualified students to attend PLMW. These scholarships should 
cover reasonable expenses (airfare, hotel, and registration fees) for 
attendance at both the workshop and the POPL conference.

Students attending this year will get one year free student membership 
of SIGPLAN, unless they prefer to opt out during their application.

The workshop registration is open to all. Students with alternative 
sources of funding are welcome as well.
