In the programming languages research program, we aim at improving the effectiveness and reliability of programming languages and systems. Effectiveness such that programmers can express intent at the right level of abstraction and get actionable feedback that is relevant and timely. Reliability such that programmers can trust the execution and analysis of programs. Find us on Mastodon!
A commemorative symposium for Eelco Visser is to be held on the first anniversary of his untimely passing in April 2022. It will bring together colleagues from various communities, with presentations of papers on topics related to his research and his other academic activities.
In case of a potential submission, please note the following deadlines:
- Friday 30 Sep 2022: Declaration of intent to submit
- Friday 28 Oct 2022: Paper submission deadline
For further details, see symposium.eelcovisser.org
In our teaching we emphasize the study of the fundamental concepts of programming languages that prepare students for (contributing to the design and implementation of) the programming languages and systems of the future. Our course topics include algorithms and data-structures, compiler construction, semantics, type systems, static and dynamic analysis, software verification, model checking, and language engineering.
Programming and Validating Software Restructurings
Composable and Safe-by-Construction Programming Language Definitions
Verified Programming Language Interaction
DSLs for Adaptable Digital Print Systems
