2nd USENIX Conference on Domain-Specific Languages (DSL'99)
October 3-6, 1999
Austin, Texas

Sponsored by USENIX, the Advanced Computing Systems Association
Co-sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN, in cooperation with ACM SIGSOFT (pending)

The full Call for Papers can be found at:

Refereed Papers due: March 22, 1999
Program Chair: Thomas Ball, Lucent Technologies

This conference is dedicated to the discussion of the unique aspects
of domain-specific languages (DSLs): their design, their implementation,
and their use in software engineering. It will include refereed papers,
invited talks, Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions, and tutorials.

We seek to advance the practice of DSLs generally by:

* eliciting examples of successful DSLs
* highlighting the spectrum of benefits which DSLs can provide
    (e.g., compile-time guarantees of behavior, improve program
    performance, reduced interval, etc.)
* discovering design principles, methodologies for creating DSLs
* eliciting design techniques and tools for working with DSLs
    throughout the software engineering life cycle
* providing a framework within which language designers from
    different domains can easily communicate
* establishing the practical value of DSLs through the publication
    of empirical data concerning productivity, quality, and
* creating a community that will continue to study and refine the
    practice of software engineering through DSLs

USENIX is the Advanced Computing Systems Association. Its members are
