OPLSS 2018

Paul Downen
We are pleased to announce the program for the 17th annual Oregon Programming
Languages Summer School (OPLSS) to be held from July 3rd to July 21th, 2018 at
the University of Oregon in Eugene. The first week, from July 3rd to July 7th,
will be an introductory session covering the foundations of programming
languages (semantics, types, proof techniques, etc.).  The introductory session
will help attendees who have not taken a course on this material prepare for the
rest of the school. Please contact the organizers if you have questions about
whether the introduction session will be helpful given your background.

The registration deadline is April 2nd, 2018. Registration for the first week is
optional. Full information on registration and scholarships can be found here:
