The Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop (PLMW) aims to encourage graduate students and senior undergraduate students to pursue careers in programming language research. The workshop brings together world leaders in programming languages research and teaching from academia and industry to provide (a) technical sessions on cutting edge PL research and (b) mentoring sessions on how to prepare for a research career. The workshop aims to engage students in a process of imagining how they might contribute to our research community. We especially encourage women and under-represented minority students and students with disabilities to attend PLMW.
After the resounding success of prior Programming Languages Mentoring Workshops at POPL 2012 - 2018, the 8th SIGPLAN Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop will be co-located with POPL 2019 . PLMW will be held immediately before POPL on Tuesday, January 15. PLMW 2019 is open for registration to all students interested in programming languages research (funded or not).
Accommodation for all funded students will be provided for the full duration of PLMW and POPL. On the evening of the 15th, after the last PLMW session, organizers, speakers, and panelists plan to form groups with students and have dinner together in nearby restaurants, where the PLMW discussions can continue in a more casual setting.
Students are encouraged to apply for participation in both PLMW and the POPL Student Volunteers program at the same time.
