    ACM Dynamic Languages Symposium 2005
    October 18, 2005
    San Diego, California
    (co-located with OOPSLA'05)



    In industry, static languages (such as Java, C++ and C#) are much more
    widely used than their dynamic counterparts (like CLOS, Python, Self,
    Perl, php or Smalltalk). So it appears as though dynamic language
    concepts were forgotten and lost the race.

    But this is not the case.

    Java and C#, the latest mainstream static languages, popularized to a
    certain extent dynamic language features such as garbage collection,
    portability and (limited forms of) reflection. In the near future, we
    expect this dynamicity to increase even further. E.g., it is getting
    clearer year after year that pervasive computing is becoming the rule
    and that concepts such as meta programming, reflection, mobility,
    dynamic reconfigurability and distribution are becoming increasingly
    popular. All of these features are the domain of dynamic languages, and
    hence it is only logical that more dynamic language concepts have to be
    taken up by static languages, or that dynamic languages can make a

    Currently, the dynamic language community is fragmented, split over a
    multitude of paradigms (from functional over logic to object-oriented),
    languages and syntaxes. This fragmentation severely hinders research as
    well as acceptance, and results in either language wars or, even worse,
    language ignorance. The goal of this symposium is to provide a highly
    visible, international forum for researchers working on dynamic
    features and languages. We explicitly invite submissions from all kinds
    of paradigms (object-oriented, functional, logic, ...), as can be seen
    from the structure of the program committee.

    Areas of interests include, but are not limited to:
    - closures
    - delegation
    - actors, active objects
    - constraint systems
    - mixins and traits
    - reflection and meta-programming
    - language symbiosis and multi-paradigm languages
    - experience reports on successful application of dynamic languages

    Accepted Papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

    Submission Guidelines

    Papers will need to be submitted using an online tracking system, of
    which the URL will be given later.

    All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format (or
    PostScript, if you do not have access to PDF-producing programs, but
    this is not recommended). Submissions, as well as final versions, must
    be formatted to conform to ACM Proceedings requirements: Nine point
    font on ten point baseline, two columns per page, each column 3.33
    inches wide by 9 inches tall, with a column gutter of 0.33 inches, etc.
    See the ACM Proceedings Guidelines. You can save preparation time by
    using one of the templates from that page. Note that MS Word documents
    must be converted to PDF before being submitted.

    Important Dates

    - Deadline for receipt of submissions: June 24th 2005
    - Notification of acceptance or rejection: August 5th 2005
    - Final version for the proceedings: To be announced later
