Eelco Visser (1966–2022) was Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Professor of Computer
Science and Chair of the Programming Languages Group in the Department of
Software Technology at TU Delft. His research career started with studies
at the University of Amsterdam and CWI, followed by appointments at Oregon
Graduate Institute and Utrecht University. He was highly influential in the
software language engineering and programming language design communities.
His many scientific contributions about meta-languages and domain-specific
languages have been of high importance in both the scientific and
industrial communities. He was a founding member of IFIP Working Groups
2.11 (Program Generation) and 2.16 (Programming Language Design).

Eelco Visser’s work on the cutting-edge language workbench *Spoofax*

2010, for which he received a *Most Influential Paper* award at OOPSLA
2020. As a strong advocate of tool-supported programming education, he led
the development of *WebLab* <https://urldefense.com/v3/__https://weblab.tudelft.nl/__;!!IBzWLUs!WIdfeiryDRFhvDvJBXRAcaaUUmJK51ikH8k_CNwSI1CU57yglC_mK21oMk4iQOELc-VhDc0poj4nFTy6vyYMb9c5ieBFPbZVf67b_LglozVH$  >, a learning
management system that is in use for a range of programming languages and
courses at TU Delft. He also led the design, implementation and use of
conf.researchr.org, a content management system for scientific events used
by hundreds of international events since 2014.
