3rd International Workshop on Real World Domain Specific Languages


In conjunction with

The International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimisation 2018.

Vienna, Austria, 24 February, 2018

As the use of computers proliferates, the complexity and variety of 
systems continues to grow. As a result, it is becoming increasingly 
inflexible to "hard wire” behaviours into software. Software developers 
can enable more control over their software configurations by exploiting 
Domain Specific Languages (DSLs). Such DSLs provide a systematic way to 
structure the underlying computational components:
to coin a phrase, a DSL is a library with syntax.

There is an enormous variety of DSLs for a very wide range of domains.
Most DSLs are highly idiosyncratic, reflecting both the specific natures 
of their application domains and their designers’ own preferences. This 
workshop will bring together constructors of DSLs for “real world” 
domains; that is, DSLs intended primarily to aid in building software to 
solve real world problems rather than to explore the more theoretical 
aspects of language design and implementation. We are looking for 
submissions that present the motivation, design, implementation, use and 
evaluation of such DSLs.

Submission Instructions:

The EasyChair submission page for this workshop is: 

We anticipate that accepted submissions will be published in the ACM 
Digital Library within its International Conference Proceedings Series, 
as were RWSDL’16 and RWDSL’17. Submissions should be 8-10 pages in ACM 
double-column format. Authors should follow the information for 
formatting ACM SIGPLAN conference papers, which can be found at 
Full submission details are on the workshop web page.
