Look at the papers presented at recent PL conferences.

CMU maintains a list.


I would add ICFP and TLDI to the top of the list. Remove PLDI - when it comes to type theory it is mostly irrelevant these days.

I would list the following

To me the following are hot topic in type-theory research.

  • Types for concurrency, (e.g. session types, channel types).
  • More expressive typing systems (e.g. refinement types, dependent types) and their integration with other forms of specification and verification (Hoare logic, interactive theorem proving, contracts).
  • Integration of static and dynamic typing (e.g. gradual typing, hybrid typing).
  • Types that are useful for meta-programming (e.g. environment classifiers).
