On January 17, 2014 I'm giving my inaugural speech on the occasion of my appointment as full professor at TU Delft.
This seemed like a good excuse to organize a symposium and get some great speakers from the programming languages community to come to Delft. I am delighted that the following excellent researchers and speakers accepted my invitation to speak at the symposium on The Future of Programming on January 16 and 17 in Delft:
- Arie van Deursen: On software changes, large and small. Versioning in the Maven ecosystem
- Brandon Hill: DSL engineering in industry -- Spoofax at Oracle Labs
- Daan Leijen: Programming with effects
- Erik Meijer: Reactive programming
- Guido Wachsmuth: Meta-languages for language design
- Harry Buhrman: Programming quantum computers
- John Hughes: The future of testing
- Manuel Serrano: From PCs to tablets: Programming the diffuse Web
- Markus Püschel: Teaching computers to write fast libraries
- Markus Völter: mbeddr: Extensible languages for embedded software engineering
- Sebastian Erdweg: Library-based language extensions in SugarJ
- Stefan Hanenberg: Empirical evaluation of programming language constructs
- Tiark Rompf: Lightweight modular staging in Scala
Registration is free and includes lunch. While seating at the inaugural speech is virtually unlimited, seating at the symposium is limited and quickly filling up. Make sure to register soon.
