What is PLMW

The Programming Language Mentoring Workshop is designed to broaden the exposure of late-stage undergraduate students and early-stage graduate students to research and career opportunities in programming languages. The workshop program will include technical sessions that cover both the history and current practice of core subfields within programming languages, mentoring sessions that cover effective habits for navigating the research landscape, and social sessions that create opportunities for students to interact with researchers in the field. Applications from underrepresented groups in computing are especially welcome.

Based on the success of previous PLMW @ PLDIs in 2016 and 2017, we are proud to announce that PLMW @ PLDI 2018 will be co-located with the conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation, and will be held the full day of June 19th, 2018.
