4th Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems
Historically, operating system development and programming
language development went hand-in-hand. Cross-fertilization
was the norm. Challenges in one area were often approached
using ideas or techniques developed in the other, and advances
in one enabled new capabilities in both. Today, although the
systems community at large retains an iron grip on C, novel
approaches to OS construction based on new programming
language ideas continue to be an active and important area of
research. The systems field continues to provide a wealth of
challenge problems and new results that should spark advances
in programming languages, software designs, and idioms.
This workshop aims to bring together researchers and developers from the
programming language and the operating system domains to discuss recent work at
the intersection of these fields. It will be a platform for discussing
new visions, challenges, experiences, problems, and solutions arising from the
application of advanced programming and software engineering concepts to
operating systems construction, and vice versa.
Presentation slides are available on the program page.
Thanks to Marc, who presented this issue at the SIGOPS business meeting,
future SOSP conferences will have "officially" collocated workshops.
