    ## Symposium

    Software systems are the engines of modern information society. Our ability to cope 
    with the increasing complexity of software systems is limited by the programming 
    languages we use to build them. Bridging the gap between domain concepts and 
    the implementation of these concepts in a programming language is one of the core 
    challenges of software engineering. Modern programming languages have considerably 
    reduced this gap, but often still require low-level programmatic encodings of domain 

    On Thursday January 16 and Friday January 17, 2014, TU Delft hosts a symposium 
    on the future of programming, which will provide an overview of the challenges in 
    software development and programming languages and visions to their solution from 
    different angles by a line-up of distinguished national and international speakers 
    from academia and industry.

    The symposium is followed by the inaugural speech of Eelco Visser on the occasion 
    of his appointment as Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Professor at TU Delft.
