Course Description

This seminar explores issues related to the theory and practice of programming languages. While topics vary by semester, the seminar will provide a forum for discussion of principles, innovations, and accomplishments in the design, definition, analysis, and implementation of programming languages and systems. Students involved in this seminar are expected to read, present, and discuss relevant research papers, drawn from seminal and recent literature.

Intro For Students

This manual is intended to help you in two ways:
  1. as a central, on-line source for information regarding the course itself;
  2. as a study guide for learning the concepts taught in the course.
The CS678x Home Page provides you with links for both types of information.

A lot of work has gone into making the manual helpful for you. Our goal has been to bring a well-organized and accurate web of data on-line. However, heed two warnings:

  1. Any course information in this manual is overruled by handouts, announcements in class, or email;
  2. Let the student beware: subject information may have been provided by students, not professors. So don't view it as gospel. See the manual disclaimer!
Please email your grader to report any errors you find or make suggestions. Contributions of pages are also very welcome. We want this manual to be as helpful to you as possible.
