2nd Workshop on Language Descriptions, Tools and Applications

LDTA 2002

Affiliated with ETAPS 2002

April 13, 2002, Grenoble, France

Scope and Motivation

The aim of this one day workshop is to bring together researchers from academia
and industry interested in the formal definition of languages, and the use
of the definitions for the derivation of tools and software applications (e.g.,
interactive transformation tools, software renovation tools, application generators).
The workshop welcomes contributions based on all kinds and styles of formal
language definition including attribute grammars, algebraic approaches, action
semantics, operational semantics, and denotational semantics. Many aspects
of the definition of languages, and the derivation of tools and applications
are independent of the actual formalism used. The workshop also welcomes contributions
to compare formalisms or to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of specific


Invited Speaker

The invited speaker at LDTA'2002 will be Charles Consel. His research interests
are in the field of developing programming language techniques and tools to
enable generic and well-structured system components to be built without loss
of efficiency. It includes among others, domain specific languages, adaptable
software components, and program specialization.



Submissions will be evaluated by the Program Committee for inclusion in the
formal proceedings. The proceedings will probably be published in the ENTCS
series. Papers must contain original contributions, be clearly written, and
include appropriate reference to and comparison with related work. Papers
(of at most 15 pages) should be submitted electronically as (optionally compressed/gzipped)
PostScript or PDF files to the workshop chair. The message should also contain
a text-only abstract and author information. Final copies of accepted papers,
after revision, must not be longer than 20 pages and have to respect the proceedings
style. In addition, a special issue of a journal to publish selected papers
is under negotiation.

Preliminary dates[TABLE NOT SHOWN]



The workshop emerged from the 'Workshops on Attribute Grammars and their Applications'
(WAGA'90, Paris, SAGA'91, Prague, WAGA'99, Amsterdam, and WAGA'00, Ponte de
Lima) and 'ASF+SDF workshops' (ASF+SDF'95, Amsterdam, and ASF+SDF'97, Amsterdam).
The 1st Workshop on Language Descriptions, Tools and Applications (LDTA 2001
) was a satellite event of ETAPS 2001 held in Genoa.
