Lang.NEXT Call for Participation
We invite you to attend Lang.NEXT, a cross-industry conference on programming language design and implementation. The focus is on mutual inspiration and novel ideas in both industry and academia. The event is held at the Microsoft Campus on Apr 2-4, and includes talks, panels, and discussions from 9-5 each day. Attendance is free, and includes lunch.
We have an impressive list of speakers signed up:
Andrew Black, Portland State University
Andy Gordon, Microsoft
Andy Moran, Galois
Brian Goetz, Oracle
Donna Malayeri, Microsoft
Dustin Campbell, Microsoft
Gilad Bracha, Google
Herb Sutter, Microsoft
James Noble, Victoria University of Wellington
Jeroen Frijters, Sumatra Software
John Cook, University of Texas Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences
Kim Bruce, Pomona College
Kunle Olukotun, Stanford
Luke Hoban, Microsoft
Mads Torgersen, Microsoft
Martin Odersky, EPFL, Typesafe
Martyn Lovell, Microsoft
Peter Alvaro, University of California at Berkeley
Robert Griesemer, Google
William Cook, University of Texas at Austin
Please share the invitation with friends and colleagues! We are still setting up an official site on Channel 9, but registration is open now at http://www.regonline.com/langnext2012.
We are closed for new speakers. However, there will be a number of slots for lightning talks, which will be allotted on a first come, first served basis at the event itself.
If you have heard of or attended Lang.NET on the Microsoft Campus in the past, that is no coincidence: this is the same event revived! We changed the name since the event isn't particularly focused on .NET. Indeed, we traditionally have a large majority of speakers and attendees from outside Microsoft
Hope to see you in April!
