PLOS 2023 Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems
October 23, 2023, Koblenz, Germany

12th Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems (PLOS 2023)

October 23, 2023
Koblenz, Germany

In conjunction with the
29th ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP '23)


Historically, operating system (OS) development and programming language (PL) 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, modern PL ideas continue to spark innovations in OS design and construction. Conversely, the systems field continues to provide a wealth of challenging problems and practical results that should spark advances in PLs, software designs, and idioms.

This workshop will bring together researchers and developers from the PL and OS domains to discuss recent work at the intersection of these fields. It will be a venue for discussing new visions, challenges, experiences, problems, and solutions arising from the application of advanced programming and software engineering concepts to OSes construction, and vice versa.
