Scala is a general purpose programming language designed to express common programming patterns in a concise, elegant, and type-safe way. It smoothly integrates features of object-oriented and functional languages.
The Scala Symposium is the leading forum for researchers and practitioners related to the Scala programming language. We welcome a broad spectrum of research topics and support many submission formats for industry and academia alike.
This year Scala Symposium is co-located with ICFP 2018 and Strange Loop 2018.
We seek submissions on all topics related to Scala, including (but not limited to):
-Language design and implementation language extensions, optimization, and performance evaluation.
-Library design and implementation patterns for extending Scala stand-alone Scala libraries, embedded domain-specific languages, combining language features, generic and meta-programming.
-Formal techniques for Scala-like programs formalizations of the language, type system, and semantics, formalizing proposed language extensions and variants, dependent object types, type and effect systems.
-Concurrent and distributed programming libraries, frameworks, language extensions, programming models, performance evaluation, experimental results.
-Big data and machine learning libraries and applications using the Scala programming language.
-Safety and reliability pluggable type systems, contracts, static analysis and verification, runtime monitoring.
-Tools development environments, debuggers, refactoring tools, testing frameworks.
-Case studies, experience reports, and pearls.
