LangDev'20 Call for Talk Proposals

April 27-28, Mainz, Germany

The Language Developer's Meetup (LangDev) is an informal two-day meeting where language engineering enthusiasts from both industry and academia can come together to discuss the state-of-the-art and state-of-the-practice of language engineering. 

On April 27/28, 2020 the third edition of LangDev will be held, at JGU Mainz in Germany. In this call for presentations, we solicit talk proposals concerning the application, development, and innovation of language engineering. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- Novel meta languages for language construction and composition
- Holistic approaches to language engineering that cross-cut multiple language aspects (e.g. abstract and concrete syntax, semantics, transformations) and/or integrate with program analysis, validation, testing, or other advanced techniques. 
- New language workbenches or novel extensions of existing language workbenches.
- Backend infrastructure of (web-based) language workbenches explaining solutions to collaboration, synchronization, or communication. 
- Industrial case studies: experience reports, large-scale evaluations, and human factors to adoption. 

LangDev seeks presentations that demonstrate applied aspects of language engineering. Presentations explaining the theory behind language engineering are also welcome, but they need to showcase the practical applicability of the presented approaches. Presentations about preliminary or unfinished work are welcome.  

We encourage presenters to demonstrate their work with a demo or live coding over "just" showing slides. Additionally, we encourage speakers to accompany their presentations with a reproduction package that helps the participants to (easily) run the presented tools, experiment with them, or to tweak benchmark experiments. This helps to create a lasting contribution. 

Talk proposals should be submitted by February 29 to 


A proposal includes a title and a short (maximum 200 words) abstract. Presenters will have 30 minutes for their talks (25 min talk + 5 min Q&A). 

All proposals will undergo light reviewing by the program committee, consisting of:

- Andreas Wortmann, RWTH Aachen University, wortmann at se-rwth.de
- Federico Tomassetti, Strumenta, federico at strumenta.com
- Niko Stotz, Canon Production Printing, niko.stotz at nikostotz.de
- Tamas Szabo, itemis/JGU Mainz, tamas.szabo at itemis.de
- Tijs van der Storm, CWI Amsterdam, storm at cwi.nl
