This seminar is intended to introduce and involve students in research conducted at the Laboratory for Software Science. The seminar is mainly in the form of paper discussions. The reading schedule is set according to our research agenda. This semester I have a sabbatical and want to catch up with the cutting-edge research in programming languages, so we will focus mainly on papers published in POPL and PLDI this year.
We will look at both work that is close to what we have done ourselves, such as verification of local solvers, and some of the recent intersections with machine learning, including differentiable programming.
- This is a research seminar intended for our Ph.D. students to present their work or get up to speed on literature essential to their thesis. We expect basic familiarity and interest in the field of programming languages, but of course we will answer any questions the participants have.
- Students must select topics from POPL/PLDI or suggest something directly related to the seminar focus. This must be agreed upon with the content curators.
- To pass the course, students need to give a single well-prepared presentation.
Suppose you want to try the ideas out or want to do some practical work during this seminar. Well, we can register you to MTAT.03.272 (Programmeerimiskeelte uurimisprojekt / Special Assignment in Programming Languages). This provides an extra 3 ECTS credits for completing an independent task in the field of programming languages.
