DSLDI 2016

Fourth Workshop on
Domain-Specific Language Design and Implementation

October 31, 2016
Amsterdam, Netherlands
Co-located with SPLASH


Deadline for talk proposals: August 1, 2016

*** Workshop Goal ***

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.

The goal of the DSLDI workshop is 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.

An additional goal of this year's workshop is to encourage discussion about
the usability of DSLs, and to establish connections with researchers in
related areas, such as end-user software engineering, who have studied
human factors of programming languages and tools.

*** Workshop Format ***

DSLDI is a single-day workshop and will consist of moderated audience
discussions structured around a series of 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 DSLDI'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 Submissions ***

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.
