Dynamically typed programming languages were once seen as slow, unreliable,
and suitable only for small throw-away tasks. However, their ability to aid
rapid systems development and to facilitate the pervasive, mobile, and
frequently updated systems that are increasingly in demand in the modern
world has led to their stock rising considerably.
While developers are ever keen to find out more about the details of dynamic
programming languages, managers are interested in finding out how they can
complement existing approved languages without diluting their organizations'
We thus solicit contributions in several areas related to dynamic
programming languages. Topics of interest include:
* Dynamic programming languages "in use".
* Organizations' experiences in integrating dynamic programming languages
into their existing language menagerie.
* Experiences of and techniques for using dynamic programming languages
effectively (including efficiency and scalability concerns).
* How dynamic programming languages have evolved and how they might
develop in the future.
* New techniques in challenging areas such as metaprogramming, reflection,
dynamic reconfigurability, and mobility.
