Dear colleges,

You might want to consider Dyla'07 as a good venue to present your  
work using your favourite programming language,


Call for Papers
Dyla 2007: 3rd Workshop on Dynamic Languages and Applications
July 31, 2007, Berlin (Collocated with ECOOP 2007)



The goal of this workshop is to act as a forum where we can discuss  
new advances in the conception, implementation and application of  
object-oriented languages that radically diverge from the statically  
typed class-based reflectionless doctrine. The goal of the workshop  
is to discuss new as well as older "forgotten" languages and features  
in this  context. Topics of interest include, but are certainly not  
limited to:

   - agents, actors, active object, distribution, concurrency and  
   - delegation, prototypes, mixins
   - first-class closures, continuations, environments
   - reflection and meta-programming
   - (dynamic) aspects for dynamic languages
   - higher-order objects & messages
   - ...  other exotic dynamic features which you would categorize as OO
   - multi-paradigm & static/dynamic-marriages
   - (concurrent/distributed/mobile/aspect) virtual machines
   - optimisation of dynamic languages
   - automated reasoning about dynamic languages
   - "regular" syntactic schemes (cf. S-expressions, Smalltalk, Self)
   - Smalltalk, Python, Ruby, Scheme, Lisp, Self, ABCL, Prolog, ...
   - ... any topic relevant in applying and/or supporting dynamic  

We solicit high-quality submissions on research results
and/or experience. Submitted papers must be unpublished
and not submitted for publication elsewhere. Submissions
should not exceed 10 pages, LNCS format (www.springer.com/lncs).


Prospective attendees are requested to submit a position paper or an  
essay (max 10 pages, references included) on a topic relevant to the  
workshop to Alexandre Bergel (Alexandre.Bergel at cs.tcd.ie).  
Submissions are demanded to be in .pdf format and should arrive  
before May 13, 2007.

A selection of the best papers will be made, which will require an  
extension for an inclusion in a special issue in Electronic  
Communications of the EASST  (eceasst.cs.tu-berlin.de). For this  
purpose, a new deadline will be set after the workshop.

Moreover, Springer publishes a Workshop-Reader (as in the case of  
previous ECOOPs) which appears after the Conference and which  
contains Workshop-Reports (written by the organizers) and not the  
position papers submitted by the participants.
