Monday, Tuesday Oct 22,23 APL 2007 program
Monday-Friday Oct 22-26 OOPSLA program
APL 2007 keynote speaker: Guy Steele, Sun Microsystems Laboratories
Using objects within APL
Array language practicum
Intro to [language] for other-language users
( We expect that there will be at least one introductory
tutorial on "classic" APL, and hope to have introductions
to a variety of array languages )
We solicit papers and proposals for tutorials, panels and workshops on
all aspects of array-oriented programming and languages; this year we
have particular interest in the themes of
integrating the use of arrays and objects
languages that support the use of arrays as a
central and thematic technique
marketplace and education: making practitioners aware of
array thinking and array languages
Our interest is in the essential use of arrays in programming in any
language (though our historical concern has been the APL family of
languages: classic APL, J, K, NIAL, ....).
Tutorial, panel, and workshop proposals, and notice of intent to
submit papers, are due by Friday June 15, to the Program Chair.
Contributed papers, not more than 10 pages in length, are due
by Monday, July 23, to the Program Chair. Details of form of
submission can be obtained from the program chair.
Deadline for detailed tutorial/panel/workshop information TBA.
