Well-designed and implemented domain-specific languages (DSLs) can achieve both usability and performance benefits over general-purpose programming languages. By raising the level of abstraction and exploiting domain knowledge, DSLs can make programming more accessible, increase programmer productivity, and support domain-specific optimizations.

The goal of the DSLDI workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in sharing ideas on how DSLs should be designed, implemented, supported by tools, and applied in realistic application contexts. We encourage talks on any aspect of this process, from soliciting domain knowledge from experts, through the design and implementation of the language, to evaluating whether and how a DSL is successful.

More generally, we are interested in continuing to build a community that can drive forward the development of modern DSLs.

Call for Talk Proposals

We solicit talk proposals in the form of short abstracts (max. 2 pages). A good talk proposal describes an interesting position, open problem, demonstration, or early achievement. The submissions will be reviewed on relevance and clarity, and used to plan the mostly interactive sessions of the workshop day. Publication of accepted abstracts and slides on the website is voluntary.
