We love programming languages (PLs), and we should all be in on the ins and outs of implementing them. If you’re interested in learning the tricks of the trade of PL design and implementation, what better opportunity than the second Programming Languages Implementation Summer School (PLISS for short).
PLISS will be held from May 19th to 24th 2019, and the deadline to express your interest is March 29th, 2019 at 17:00 GMT. More details can be found here.

Two weeks ago, I attended the first Programming Language Implementation Summer School, held in beautiful Bertinoro, Italy.
The goal of PLISS was “to prepare early graduate students and advanced undergraduates for research in the field,” and I think it successfully accomplished that. There were many talks in a variety of areas, such as just-in-time compilers, garbage collection, static analysis, and distributed systems. But PLISS was more than just a series of talks: PLISS provided an environment for interacting with other students as well as senior researchers.
What does every student interested in programming languages need to learn about the practical side of the field? That is the question that the first international summer school on programming language implementation (or PLISS for short) has set out to answer.
