7th Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems
Historically, operating system development and programming language
development went hand-in-hand. Challenges in one area were often
approached using ideas or techniques developed in the other, and
advances in one area enabled new capabilities in the other.
Today, although the systems community at large retains an iron grip
on C, modern programming language ideas continue to spark innovations
in OS design and construction. Conversely, the systems field
continues to provide a wealth of challenging problems and practical
results that should lead to advances in programming languages,
software designs, and idioms.
This workshop will bring together researchers and developers from the
programming language and operating system domains to discuss
recent work at the intersection of these fields. It will be a
platform for discussing new visions, challenges, experiences,
problems, and solutions arising from the application of advanced
programming and software engineering concepts to operating systems
construction, and vice versa.
