The Grace Object-Oriented Educational Programming Language design
project was started at ECOOP in Slovenia to design a new OO language
for teaching and research. This workshop will allow the core project
team to present their results back to the community: a specification,
reference implementation, and experience teaching with Grace. The
workshop will also allow the Grace project to gain feedback on the
current design and implementation, and to plan for the future.

The latest draft of the Grace Language Specification (currently 0.7.0)
is hosted here: http://gracelang.org/applications/documentation/spec/

# Call for Expressions of Interest

We invite short research papers, position papers, and tool
demonstrations in areas such as:

 • experience implementing Grace
 • critiques and feedback on the Grace specification
 • proposed extensions to Grace
 • lessons that Grace may take from other related language projects
          (such as Pyret, Racket, BlueJ, Wyvern, Stride, TouchDevelop,
          TrumpScript etc)
 • lessons that Grace may take from language workbench
   	  implementation tools 

Expressions of interest to submit position papers or make
