CFP: Language Descriptions Tools and Applications (LDTA 2009)
LDTA: Workshop on Language Descriptions Tools and Application
Call For Papers 2009
This is the Call For Papers for the Ninth Workshop on Language Descriptions, Tools and Applications (LDTA 2009)
LDTA is a two-day satellite event of ETAPS which takes on the 28th and 29th of March 2009 in York, England.Scope
LDTA is an application and tool oriented forum on meta programming in a broad sense. A meta program is a program that takes other programs as input or output. The focus of LDTA is on generated or otherwise efficiently implemented meta programs, possibly using high level descriptions of programming languages. Tools and techniques presented at LDTA are usually applicable in the context of "Language Workbenches" or "Meta Programming Systems" or simply as parts of advanced programming environments or IDEs. The applications areas include, but are not limited to:
LDTA is a well-established workshop next to other conferences and workshops on (programming) language engineering topics such as SLE and GPCE.LDTA is traditionally a forum where computer science theories are put to the test of real-world software engineering issues, for example by applying:
Submission Procedure and Publication
Submissions in the following categories are admissible:
final versions of accepted papers will probably(*) be published in
Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS), Elsevier
Science, and will be made available during the workshop. (*)Due to
organizational changes at Elsevier, publication by ENTCS publication is
provisional; another comparable venue will be found otherwise.
The authors of each submission are required to give a presentation at LDTA 2009. The authors of the tool papers are required to include an interactive demonstration in their presentations.
The authors of the best papers will be invited to write a journal version of their paper which will be separately reviewed and, assuming acceptance, be published in journal form. As in past years, this will be done in a special issue devoted to LDTA 2009 of the journal Science of Computer Programming (Elsevier Science).
The authors of the best tool papers will be invited to write a paper and submit the source of code of their tool, which will both be separately reviewed and, assuming acceptance, be published in the special issue on Experimental Software and Toolkits (EST) of the journal Science of Computer Programming (Elsevier Science).
