DSLDI 2014

Second Workshop on
Domain-Specific Language Design and Implementation

October 20/21, 2014
Portland, USA
Co-located with SPLASH/OOPSLA


If designed and implemented well, domain-specific languages (DSLs)
combine the best features of general-purpose programming languages
(e.g., performance) with high productivity (e.g., ease of

*** Workshop Goal ***

The goal of the DSLDI workshop is to bring together researchers and
practitioners interested in sharing ideas on how DSLs should be
designed, implemented, supported by tools, and applied in realistic
application contexts. We are both interested 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 the development of modern

*** Workshop Format ***

DSLDI is a single-day workshop and will consist of a series of short
talks whose main goal is to trigger exchange of opinion and
discussions. The talks should be on the topics within DSLDI's area of
interest, which include but are not limited to the following ones:

* DSL implementation techniques, including compiler-level and
 runtime-level solutions
* utilization of domain knowledge for driving optimizations of DSL
* utilizing DSLs for managing parallelism and hardware heterogeneity
* DSL performance and scalability studies
* DSL tools, such as DSL editors and editor plugins, debuggers,
 refactoring tools, etc.
* applications of DSLs to existing as well as emerging domains, for
 example graph processing, image processing, machine learning,
 analytics, robotics, etc.
* practitioners reports, for example descriptions of DSL deployment in
 a real-life production setting

*** Call for Submissions ***

We solicit talk proposals in the form of short abstracts (max. 2
pages). A good talk proposal describes an interesting position,
demonstration, or early achievement. The submissions will be reviewed
on relevance and clarity, and used to plan the mostly interactive
sessions of the workshop day. Publication of accepted abstracts and
slides on the website is voluntary.

* Deadline for talk proposals: August 27, 2014
* Notification: September 12, 2014
* Workshop: October 19 or 20, 2014
* Submission website: https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dsldi2014
