Just a note: DLS is an excellent venue for papers on Racket, and I
encourage Racketeers everywhere to submit.


Dynamic Languages Symposium 2012

October 22, 2012

Co-located with SPLASH 2012
In association with ACM SIGPLAN
Tucson, Arizona, USA


**** Call for Papers ****

The 8th Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at SPLASH 2012 is a forum
for the discussion of dynamic languages, their implementation and
application. While mature dynamic languages including Smalltalk, Lisp,
Scheme, Self, Prolog, and APL continue to grow and inspire new
converts, a new generation of dynamic scripting languages such as
JavaScript, Python, Ruby, PHP, Tcl, Lua, and Clojure are successful in
a wide range of applications. DLS provides a place for researchers and
practitioners to come together and share their knowledge, experience,
and ideas for future research and development.

DLS 2012 invites high quality papers reporting original research,
innovative contributions or experience related to dynamic languages,
their implementation and application. Accepted Papers will be
published in the ACM Digital Library.

Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

 * Innovative language features and implementation techniques
 * Development and platform support, tools
 * Interesting applications
 * Domain-oriented programming
 * Very late binding, dynamic composition, and runtime adaptation
 * Reflection and meta-programming
 * Software evolution
 * Language symbiosis and multi-paradigm languages
 * Dynamic optimization
 * Hardware support
 * Experience reports and case studies
 * Educational approaches and perspectives
 * Object-oriented, aspect-oriented, and context-oriented programming

=== Submissions and proceedings ===

We invite original contributions that neither have been published
previously nor are under review by other refereed events or
publications. Research papers should describe work that advances the
current state of the art. Experience papers should be of broad
interest and should describe insights gained from substantive
practical applications. The program committee will evaluate each
contributed paper based on its relevance, significance, clarity,
length, and originality.

Papers should be of a length appropriate to their content: a shorter
paper may be sufficient to describe a smaller but still significant
result, and no paper will be rated poorly solely based on its length.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

Papers are to be submitted electronically at
http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=dls12 in PDF format.
Submissions should not exceed 12 pages and need to use the ACM format,
templates for which can be found at

=== Important dates ===

Submission of papers: July 11, 2012 (hard deadline)
Author notification: August 1, 2012
Final versions due: August 15, 2012
DLS 2012: October 22, 2012
SPLASH 2012: October 19-26, 2012
