Request for Participation in the First Workshop on Programming
Languages and Integrated Development Environments (PLIDE)

When: Monday, October 22nd 2007 Where: OOPSLA 2007 in Montreal,
Quebec Canada

Deadline: please express interest through the wiki before August 15th

A programming languages success increasingly depends on how well it
is supported by integrated development environments (IDEs).
Unfortunately, despite the advent of open and extensible IDEs, adding
language support to an IDE largely remains a black art; the
necessary knowledge and experience, learned mostly through trial-and-
error, is not easily disseminated. This workshop will bring together
industry practitioners and researchers to exchange, discuss, and
develop techniques for supporting languages in IDEs including (but
not limited to) Eclipse, NetBeans, Visual Studio, and IntelliJ.
Topics that will be discussed include how to build presentation
compilers that underlie IDE services, how to build these IDE
services, intra and inter-language refactoring and program analysis,
and special considerations for dynamic or interactive languages. In
the course of this workshop, existing practices and open problems in
this field will be identified with the goal of creating ongoing
communication and collaboration within this community.

If you want to participate in PLIDE, please express interest through
the workshop wiki:


Instructions: under the Interested in Participating section of the
wiki, link in a page about yourself that describes how to contact you
and why you are interested in attending this workshop. Also, your
page should identify a discussion topic for the workshop: a challenge
problem, a position statement, or a description of some novel
technology that you are working on. After August 15th 2007, we will
finalize the participant list, which is limited to 20 or so people to
ensure a lively discussion, and use the wiki to collectively finalize
the program of the workshop.

Questions can be fielded by email to sean.mcdirmid@epfl.ch.
