Colocated Conferences

Onward! logo

Onward! (an OOPSLA conference) is more radical, more visionary and more open than other conferences to not so well proven but well argued ideas. It welcomes different ways of thinking about, approaching, and reporting on programming language and software engineering research.

Onward! fosters the multidisciplinarity of software development. We are interested in anything to do with programming and software. Processes, methods, languages, art, philosophy, biology, economics, communities, politics ethics, and of course applications. Anything!

Dynamic Languages Symposium

The 5th Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at OOPSLA 2009 is a forum for discussion of dynamic languages, their implementation and application. While mature dynamic languages including Smalltalk, Lisp, Scheme, Self, Prolog, and APL continue to grow and inspire new converts, a new generation of dynamic scripting languages such as Python, Ruby, PHP, Tcl, and JavaScript are successful in a wide range of applications. DLS provides a place for researchers and practitioners to come together and share their knowledge, experience, and ideas for future research and development.
