                Workshop on Domain Specific Languages Design and Implementation (DSLDI)

                                                           Collocated with ECOOP 2013

                                             Monday, July 1st, 2013, Montpellier, France



Modern hardware is growing more and more complex, often featuring not only multiple cores
but also heterogeneous components with various types of architecturally different accelerators. 
Consequently, it is increasingly more difficult for the programmers to produce high-performance 
scalable software, which is often equally complex, using general-purpose programming languages
such as Java or C++, as they lack appropriate language-level abstractions. Languages designed
to support high productivity, such as scripting languages exemplified by Python, JavaScript or Perl,
make the programmer's task much easier. Their performance, however, while certainly adequate
for some use cases, is not quite on-par with that of the general-purpose programming languages. 
Domain Specific Languages (DSLs) combine the best features of the general-purpose programming
languages, that is efficiency, and of the languages designed for high productivity, that is ease of
programming. This makes DSLs our best hope for harnessing computational resources available
on modern architectures without requiring super-human programming skills.

The goal of the DSLDI workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in sharing
ideas on how Domain Specific Languages should be designed and implemented and on usage scenarios
for modern DSLs. We are interested both in discovering how already known domains, such as graph
processing or machine learning, can be best supported by DSLs but also in exploring new domains that
could be targeted by DSLs. More generally, we are interested in building a community that can drive
forward development of modern DSLs.

The workshop will consist of a series of short invited talks whose main goal would be to trigger exchange
of opinion and discussions on the topics within DSLDI's area of interest.
