FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS (EXTENDED)
Workshop (Wednesday Sep 28, 2005,
[A full-day tutorial will also be given the day before.]
MetaOCaml is a multi-stage extension of the widely used functional programming language OCaml. It provides a generic core for expressing macros, staging, and partial evaluation. As such, it also provides unique support for building aspect weavers in a statically typed setting. The workshop is a forum for discussing experience with using MetaOCaml as well as possible future developments for the language. The scope of the workshop includes all aspects of the design, semantics, theory, application, and implementation of MetaOCaml. The workshop welcomes reports on
Each submission will be reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee (PC). The PC will work to provide detailed and constructive comments to the authors. The workshop will only have informal proceedings, and is intended to be close in spirit to the Haskell, ML, and Scheme workshops.
Based on author requests and PC decisions, authors will be given either 25-minute or 15-minute slots to present their ideas, either of which will be followed by 15 minutes of questions and discussion. At the end of the workshop, one hour will be allocated to an open discussion to review the outcomes of the meeting, and to discuss future challenges and directions for MetaOCaml.
For uniformity, authors are encouraged to use the
SIGS conference style file (option 1).
We also request that submissions be limited to 12 pages in this style.
We ask that papers be submitted through the following
