Proceedings of the 3rd Workshop on Domain-Specific Language Design and Implementation (DSLDI 2015) [article]

Tijs van der Storm, Sebastian Erdweg
2015 arXiv   pre-print
The goal of the DSLDI workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners interested in sharing ideas on how DSLs should be designed, implemented, supported by tools, and applied in realistic application  ...  We are both interested in discovering how already known domains such as graph processing or machine learning can be best supported by DSLs, but also in exploring new domains that could be targeted by DSLs  ...  Quoted terms allow the DSL to share the syntax and type system of the host language. Normalising quoted terms ensures the subformula property, which  ...
