PLT Redex Summer School, Call for Participation

LOCATION: University of Utah, Salt Lake City
DATES: July 27 - July 31, 2015

PLT Redex is a lightweight, embedded DSL for modeling programming
languages, their reduction semantics, and their type systems. It comes with
an IDE and a toolbox for exploring, testing, debugging, and type-setting
language models. The PLT research group has successfully used Redex to
model and analyze a wide spectrum of published models.

The summer school will introduce students to the underlying theory of
reduction semantics, programming in the Redex language, and using its
tool suite effectively.  The course is intended for PhD students and
researchers in programming languages. Enrollment is limited to 25

While the workshop itself is free, attendees must pay for travel, room, and
board. We expect room and board to be around $500, assuming an arrival in
the evening of Sunday July 26 and leaving Friday July 31 or August 1.
Partial financial support for PhD students is available.

To register, send email to Matthew Flatt ([email protected]). If you
are a PhD student and requesting financial support, CC your advisor
and ask for a one-line confirmation email.
