*Analysis and Programming Languages for Web Applications and Cloud Applications *

(APLWACA 2010)

Toronto, Canada, Sunday June 6, 2010
Co-located with PLDI 2010

Submission due date: Friday March 26, 2010

Analysis and Programming Languages for Web Applications and Cloud Applications (APLWACA, pronounced "apple-whacka") is a new workshop that provides a forum for exploring and evaluating ideas on the use of program analysis and programming language techniques to improve web and cloud applications. Web applications are distributed systems that communicate using Web protocols, and contain client systems executing within commodity web browsers. Cloud applications are distributed systems that utilize cloud computing technologies.

The focus of the workshop is primarily on reliability, security, and performance of web and cloud applications. Strongly encouraged are proposals of new, speculative ideas; evaluations of new or known techniques in practical settings; and discussions of important existing and emerging problems.

The scope of APLWACA includes, but is not limited to:

   * Static analysis of web and cloud applications
   * Runtime analysis of web and cloud applications and enhanced web
     and cloud application runtimes
   * Program analysis techniques for discovering reliability issues,
     security vulnerabilities, or performance bottlenecks
   * Testing and model checking of web and cloud applications
   * Compiler- and language-based mechanisms for security and performance
   * New languages, techniques, and runtimes for programming web and
     cloud applications, including client-side programming
   * Characterizing web and cloud application workloads and benchmarks,
     especially as it comes to large distributed applications like
     Facebook or Hotmail
