Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop 2016What is PLMW
The Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop (PLMW) aims to encourage graduate students and senior undergraduate students to pursue careers in programming language research. The workshop brings 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 aims to engage students in a process of imagining how they might contribute to our research community. We especially encourage women and under-represented minority students to attend PLMW.
After the resounding success of the first four Programming Languages Mentoring Workshops at POPL 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015, we announce the 5th SIGPLAN Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop, co-located with POPL 2016. POPL is the ACM’s flagship conference for foundational aspects of programming languages, and its 43rd edition will take place in Florida, USA next year. PLMW will be held immediately before POPL 2016, on Tuesday, January 19. We hope that participants will stay through the entire conference.
PLMW sponsors 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.
Access the scholarship application form here.
The deadline for full consideration of funding is FRIDAY, OCTOBER 23.
Selected participants will be notified by NOVEMBER 15 or earlier.
