The First Scala Workshop
Call for Papers
Scala is a general purpose programming language designed to express
common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe
way. It smoothly integrates features of object-oriented and
This workshop is a forum for researchers and practitioners to share
new ideas and results of interest to the Scala community. The first
workshop will be held at EPFL in Lausanne, Switzerland, on Thursday
15 April 2010, co-located with Scala Days 2010 (15-16 April).
We seek papers on topics related to Scala, including (but not
1. Language design and implementation -- language extensions,
optimization, and performance evaluation.
2. Library design and implementation patterns for extending Scala --
embedded domain-specific languages, combining language features,
generic and meta-programming.
3.Formal techniques for Scala-like programs -- formalizations of the
language, type system, and semantics, formalizing proposed language
extensions and variants, dependent object types, type and effect
4. Concurrent and distributed programming -- libraries, frameworks,
language extensions, programming paradigms: (Actors, STM, ...),
performance evaluation, experimental results.
5. Safety and reliability -- pluggable type systems, contracts,
static analysis and verification, runtime monitoring.
6. Tools -- development environments, debuggers, refactoring
tools, testing frameworks.
7. Case studies, experience reports, and pearls

Notification: Monday, Feb 15, 2010
Final revision: Monday, Mar 15, 2010
Workshop: Thursday, Apr 15, 2010
Submitted papers should describe new ideas, experimental results, or
projects related to Scala. In order to encourage lively discussion,
submitted papers may describe work in progress. All papers will be
judged on a combination of correctness, significance, novelty,
clarity, and interest to the community.
Submissions must be in English and at most 12 pages total length in
the standard ACM SIGPLAN two-column conference format (10pt).
No formal proceedings will be published, but there will be a webpage
linking to all accepted papers. The workshop also welcomes short papers.
Submission instructions will be published at:
Ian Clarke, Uprizer Labs
William Cook, UT Austin
Adriaan Moors, KU Leuven
Martin Odersky, EPFL (chair)
Kunle Olukotun, Stanford University
David Pollak, Liftweb
Lex Spoon, Google
