Call For Papers
The DYLA Workshop series focuses on the revival of dynamic languages. These days, dynamic languages (like Ruby, Python, JavaScript, Lua, etc…) are getting ever more popular. This is a call to arms for academia! We need to explore the future of dynamic languages through its human aspects and technical issues. We also ought to look back and pick up solutions from existing dynamic languages (such as Scheme, Smalltalk, or Self) to be rediscovered and spread around. 

Goal and Topics 

The goal of this workshop is to act as a forum where we can discuss dynamic languages and their applications. Topics of interest include any topic relevant in applying and/or supporting dynamic languages: Ruby, Python, Groovy, JavaScript, Lua, Clojure, Lisp, Scheme, Smalltalk, Self, ABCL, Prolog, and many more… 

Human aspects of dynamic languages, such as 
—	empirical studies about the application of dynamic languages 
—	best practices and patterns specific to dynamic languages 
—	program correctness through unit testing (as opposed to types) 
—	improved or novel IDE support for dynamic languages 
—	use of dynamic features by library & framework developers 
—	scripting of static application with dynamic languages 
—	reverse engineering and analysis of dynamic applications 

Technical aspects of dynamic languages, such as 
—	what features make a language a dynamic one? 
—	agents, actors, active object, distribution, concurrency and mobility 
—	delegation, prototypes, mix-ins, traits 
—	first-class closures, continuations, environments 
—	reflection and meta-programming 
—	automated reasoning about programs written in dynamic languages 
—	(concurrent/distributed/mobile/aspect) virtual machines 
—	optimization of dynamic languages 
—	multi-paradigm & static/dynamic-marriages 
—	type systems for dynamic languages 
—	(dynamic) aspects for dynamic languages 
—	higher-order objects & messages 
—	…other exotic dynamic features 


The workshop will have a demo-oriented style. The idea is to allow participants to demonstrate new and interesting features and discuss what they feel is relevant for the dynamic language community. 
Participants need to submit a 2–4 page position paper of their work in ACM, sig-alternate.cls format. At the workshop, participants will be asked to give 10-minute “lightning demos” of their contributions.
