PLMW@ICFP: CALL FOR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS and PARTICIPATION (deadline June 30!)

PLMW@ICFP: CALL FOR SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS and PARTICIPATION (deadline June 30!)

ACM SIGPLAN Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop
Co-located with ICFP'18

PLMW web page: https://icfp18.sigplan.org/track/PLMW-ICFP-2018

The purpose of the programming languages mentoring workshop (PLMW) is to encourage senior undergraduate and early career (first or second year) to pursue careers in programming language research. We are specifically interested in attracting groups who have traditionally not had the opportunity to participate in research in functional programming. This workshop will be a combination of learning about the work being done in several areas of programming language research and mentoring with respect to helping students prepare for graduate school and the rest of their career. We will bring together leaders in programming language research from academia and industry to give talks on the kind of research typically performed after obtaining a Ph.D. The workshop will engage students, specifically interested in programming language research, in a process of imagining how they might contribute to the world.

We especially encourage women and underrepresented minority students to attend PLMW.

This workshop is part of the activities surrounding ICFP, the International Conference on Functional Programming, and  takes place the day before the main conference. One goal of the workshop is to make ICFP conference more accessible to newcomers. We hope that participants will stay through the entire conference.
