Paris, September 19--21, 1990



Although attribute grammars have been introduced more than 20 years
ago, they are still not as widely used as it could have been hoped
initially, in particular in the industry, despite their qualities as a
specification tool.

The aim of WAGA is hence to show that attribute grammars are still an
active research topic which --- and this is important --- now leads to
useful applications in various areas. It is open to anyone interested
in the field (researchers, engineers, students, ...).

The workshop will cover all aspects of attribute grammars, with an
emphasis on practical results and applications. It will feature three
invited talks, 21 presentations selected by the Program Committee and
a discussion.

WAGA will be held at Ministe`re de la Recherche et de la Technologie,
in the former buildings of prestigious E'cole Polytechnique. They are
located in one of the most pleasant district of Paris, at walking
distance from Quartier Latin, Jardin du Luxembourg and Jussieu campus,
which groups the Universities of Paris VI and Paris VII.
