After the resounding success of the first five Programming Languages Mentoring
Workshops at POPL 2012-2016 we proudly announce the 2017 SIGPLAN Programming
Languages Mentoring Workshop (PLMW), co-located with POPL 2017 and organised by
Loris D'Antoni, Eva Darulova, Alexandra Silva, and Dimitrios Vytiniotis.
The purpose of this mentoring workshop is to encourage graduate students and
senior undergraduate students to pursue careers in programming language
research. This workshop will bring together world leaders in programming
languages research and teaching from academia and industry to provide (a)
technical sessions on cutting-edge PL research and (b) mentoring sessions on
how to prepare for a research career. The workshop will engage students in a
process of imagining how they might contribute to our research community.
We especially encourage women, underrepresented minority students, and people
with disabilities to attend PLMW.
This workshop is part of the activities surrounding POPL, the Symposium on
Principles of Programming Languages, and takes place the day before the main
conference. One goal of the workshop is to make the POPL conference more
accessible to newcomers. We hope that participants will stay through the entire
