======== DLS 2015 ===========

11th Dynamic Languages Symposium 2015

October, 2015

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States

http://DLS2015.inria.fr

Co-located with SPLASH 2015

In association with ACM SIGPLAN

The 11th Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at SPLASH 2015 is the premier forum for researchers and practitioners to share knowledge and research on dynamic languages, their implementation, and applications. The influence of dynamic languages — from Lisp to Smalltalk to Python to Javascript — on real-world practice and research continues to grow.

DLS 2015 invites high quality papers reporting original research, innovative contributions, or experience related to dynamic languages, their implementation, and applications. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library, and freely available for 2 weeks before and after the event itself.  Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

Innovative language features and implementation techniques

Development and platform support, tools

Interesting applications

Domain-oriented programming

Very late binding, dynamic composition, and run-time adaptation

Reflection and meta-programming

Software evolution

Language symbiosis and multi-paradigm languages

Dynamic optimization

Hardware support

Experience reports and case studies

Educational approaches and perspectives

Semantics of dynamic languages

== Invited Speaker ==

DLS is pleased to announce a talk by the following invited speaker:

Eelco Visser: Declare your Language.

== Submissions and proceedings ==

Submissions should not have been published previously nor under review at other events. Research papers should describe work that advances the current state of the art. Experience papers should be of broad interest and should describe insights gained from substantive practical applications. The program committee will evaluate each contributed paper based on its relevance, significance, clarity, length, and originality.

Papers are to be submitted electronically at

http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=dls15 in PDF format. Submissions must be in the ACM format (see

http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm) and not exceed 12 pages. Authors are reminded that brevity is a virtue.

DLS 2015 will run a two-phase reviewing process to help authors make their final papers the best that they can be. After the first round of reviews, papers will be rejected, conditionally accepted, or unconditionally accepted. Conditionally accepted papers will be given a list of issues raised by reviewers. Authors will then submit a revised version of the paper with a cover letter explaining how they have or why they have not addressed these issues. The reviewers will then consider the cover letter and revised paper and recommend final acceptance or rejection.

Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

Spur in 64!

20 November, 2014

bits

From Eliot Miranda:

Hi All,

I’m pleased to say that today the simulator got as far as redrawing the
entire display and finishing the start-up sequence for a bootstrapped
64-bit Spur image. That means it correctly executed over 26 million
bytecodes. So at least a 64-bit Spur Stack VM is not too far off.

best,
Eliot

Pyonkee (Scratch on iPad)

28 August, 2014

pyonkee

From Masashi-san:

Hi all,

 

I have just released a Scratch clone running on iPad. It is based on Scratch 1.4 from the MIT Media Laboratory.

The app is now called “Pyonkee” – freely available on App Store.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pyonkee/id905012686

 

Pyonkee was originally started as a fork of John M McIntosh’s Scratch Viewer.

https://github.com/johnmci/Scratch.app.for.iOS.

 

While Scratch Viewer just works as a viewer of the existing Scratch projects, Pyonkee supports creation/edit of projects.

 

Other features:

– User interfaces are optimized for iPad

– Native font support

– Embedded camera support

– IME support

– Auto-saving project

– Sending projects via e-mail

– Project import/export through iTunes (currently disabled)

 

Moreover, source code is open on github. Feel free to fork it.

https://github.com/SoftUmeYa/Pyonkee

 

Enjoy!

SqueakJS-Etoys-20140704

From Bert Freudenberg:

Hi all,

my SqueakJS VM has reached a major milestone. It is now sufficiently complete to run a full Etoys image (and possibly other non-closure images, too). It has support for most BitBlt modes, WarpBlt, even some Balloon2D rendering (for TTF fonts), a virtual file system, image saving etc.

Try it: http://bertfreudenberg.github.io/SqueakJS/etoys/
(Safari and IE are significantly faster than Firefox and Chrome, best is Safari Webkit nightly, works on iPad too, hopefully Android)

For more details, see my blogpost:
http://croquetweak.blogspot.de/2014/07/squeakjs-runs-etoys-now.html

Feedback and contributions welcome :)
