About the conference

Why a conference on emerging programming languages? As new problems in computing arise, new languages are being created to help tackle those problems. We want to bring together programming language creators, researchers, and enthusiasts to share goals, experiences, and challenges. Our goal is advancing the state of the art in programming language design and implementation.
