Invited Talks

ACM SIGPLAN 2013 Workshop on Partial Evaluation and Program Manipulation
We are proud to present the following two invited talks:

  • Zhenjiang Hu (National Institute of Informatics, Japan): Practical Aspets of Bidirectional Graph Transformations

    Abstract Coming soon...

  • Peter Thiemann (Institut für Informatik, Technische Fakultät, Universität Freiburg, Germany): Partially Static Operations

    Abstract Partial evaluation assigns binding times to values manipulated in a program. A partial evaluator processes values with a static binding time whereas a dynamic binding time mandates code generation. Binding time descriptions have evolved from monolithic to fine grained, partially static data structures where different components may have different binding times.

    We consider the next step in this evolution where not just data structures but also operations can give rise to partially static structures, which are processed by the partial evaluator. We introduce this notion in an online setting, generalize it, generate a binding-time analysis for it, and implement an offline partial evaluator supporting partially static operations with it. We report on our initial experiences with this new approach.
