CALL FOR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS (Deadline: October 23!)

ACM SIGPLAN Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop, Paris, France

Tuesday, January 17, 2017

Co-located with POPL 2017

PLMW web page: http://conf.researchr.org/track/POPL-2017/PLMW-2017

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 
conference.

A number of sponsors (listed below) have generously donated scholarship funds 
for qualified students to attend PLMW. These scholarships should cover 
reasonable expenses (airfare, hotel, and registration fees) for attendance at 
both the workshop and the POPL conference.

Students attending this year will get one year free student membership of 
SIGPLAN, unless they prefer to opt out during their application.

The workshop registration is open to all. Students with alternative sources of 
funding are welcome as well.

APPLICATION for PLMW scholarship:

The scholarship application can be accessed from the workshop web site.
