Programming languages is a core field in computer science that studies the design, theory and applications of both new and existing programming languages. Topics in programming languages include compiler construction, program analysis, program transformations, meta programming, parsing, formal semantics, program verification, and type systems.
In this course, we will read scientific journal and conference articles in the field of programming languages to get a deeper understanding of programming languages.
If you wish to do a MSc thesis in the programming languages group, we highly recommend taking this course.
The student will acquire:
- Skills to read and discuss scientific articles.
- Understanding of the topics in the research field of programming languages.
- Understanding of the research methodology in the research field programming languages.
We will run this seminar as a discussion seminar with meetings twice a week. In each meeting, we discuss a scientific article that has been studied by the participants in advance. The following activities are required for each meeting:
- Reading a scientific article
- Writing and submitting a short summary of the article (max 0.5 pages)
- Active participation in the discussion of the article
- 4h Discussion sessions
- 6h Reading paper at home
