The 10k problem

So, it seems that we have some ideas regarding the 20k LOC problem...
Maybe the list (being somewhat quiet) has some fresh suggestions for the C10k problem?

Dynamic Languages Symposium: Call for Papers

===========================================================================
                      Dynamic Languages Symposium 2014
                              October 21, 2014

               Co-located with SPLASH 2014, Portland, OR, USA

             http://www.dynamic-languages-symposium.org/dls-14/
===========================================================================

The 10th Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) at SPLASH 2014 is the premier
forum for researchers and practitioners to share knowledge and research on
dynamic languages, their implementation, and applications. The influence of
dynamic languages -- from Lisp to Smalltalk to Python to Javascript -- on
real-world practice, and research, continues to grow.

DLS 2014 invites high quality papers reporting original research, innovative
contributions, or experience related to dynamic languages, their
implementation, and applications. Accepted papers will be published in the
ACM Digital Library, and freely available for 2 weeks before and after the
event itself. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

 * Innovative language features and implementation techniques
 * Development and platform support, tools
 * Interesting applications
 * Domain-oriented programming
 * Very late binding, dynamic composition, and run-time adaptation
 * Reflection and meta-programming
 * Software evolution
 * Language symbiosis and multi-paradigm languages
 * Dynamic optimization
 * Hardware support
 * Experience reports and case studies
 * Educational approaches and perspectives
 * Semantics of dynamic languages

  Submissions

Submissions should not have been published previously nor be under review at
other events. Research papers should describe work that advances the current
state of the art. Experience papers should be of broad interest and should
describe insights gained from substantive practical applications. The program
committee will evaluate each contributed paper based on its relevance,
significance, clarity, length, and originality.

Papers are to be submitted electronically at
http://www.easychair.org/conferences?conf=dls14 in PDF format. Submissions
must be in the ACM format (see http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm)
and not exceed 12 pages. Authors are reminded that brevity is a virtue.

DLS 2014 will run a two-phase reviewing process to help authors make their
final papers the best that they can be. After the first round of reviews,
papers will be rejected, conditionally accepted, or unconditionally accepted.
Conditionally accepted papers will be given a list of issues raised by
reviewers. Authors will then submit a revised version of the paper with a
cover letter explaining how they have / why they have not addressed these
issues. The reviewers will then consider the cover letter and revised paper
and recommend final acceptance / rejection.

  Important dates

Submissions: June 8 2014 (FIRM DEADLINE)
First phase notification: July 14 2014
Revisions due: August 4 2014
Final notification: August 11 2014
Camera ready: August 15 2014
DLS: October 21 2014

Re: Communicating with Aliens Problem

Hmm, quite a test of Unicode!

'FACE WITH ROLLING EYES' not in unicode. Perhaps use
'FACE WITH STUCK-OUT TONGUE AND WINKING EYE' (U+1F61C)
'SPARKLES' (U+2728)
'FEARFUL FACE' (U+1F628)
'PERSON RAISING BOTH HANDS IN CELEBRATION' (U+1F64C)
'FERRIS WHEEL' (U+1F3A1)
'DOLPHIN' (U+1F42C)

In a suitably unicode-capable setup, that should be:
😜✨😨🙌🎡🐬

(And perhaps in a less capable setup, some substitution using the unicode descriptions would be ideal?)

Cheers
Ed

Avaz freespeech

Maybe you've seen the TED talk on http://avazapp.com/freespeech/  it appears to be something like intentional software for natural language.  You design what you are trying to communicate using icons and answering questions to relate the icons.  Once the meaning is captured, the English is generated using an engine.  The same meaning can be used to generate other languages.

SASO 2014 - First CfP (The Eight IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems)

************************************************************************************************************

CALL FOR PAPERS

The Eight IEEE International Conference on Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing Systems (SASO 2014)
Imperial College, London (UK); 8-12 September 2014 http://www.iis.ee.imperial.ac.uk/saso2014/

************************************************************************************************************

Part of FAS* - Foundation and Applications of Self* Computing Conferences Collocated with:
The International Conference on Cloud and Autonomic Computing (CAC 2014) The 14th IEEE Peer-to-Peer
Computing Conference 

-------------------
Aims and Scope
-------------------

The aim of the Self-Adaptive and Self-Organizing systems conference series (SASO) is to provide a forum
for the foundations of a principled approach to engineering systems, networks and services based on
self-adaptation and self-organization. The complexity of current and emerging networks, software and
services, especially in dealing with dynamics in the environment and problem domain, has led the
software engineering, distributed systems and management communities to look for inspiration in
diverse fields (e.g., complex systems, control theory, artificial intelligence, sociology, and
biology) to find new ways of designing and managing such computing systems. In this endeavor,
self-organization and self-adaptation have emerged as two promising interrelated approaches. 

The eight edition of the SASO conference embraces the inter-disciplinarity and the scientific,
empirical and application dimensions of self-* systems and welcomes novel results on both
self-adaptive and self-organizing systems research. The topics of interest include, but are not
limited to:

- Self-* systems theory: theoretical frameworks and models; biologically- and socially-inspired
paradigms; inter-operation of self-* mechanisms;
- Self-* systems engineering: reusable mechanisms, design patterns, architectures, methodologies;
software and middleware development frameworks and methods, platforms and toolkits; hardware; self-* materials;
- Self-* system properties: robustness, resilience and stability; emergence; computational awareness
and self-awareness; reflection;
- Self-* cyber-physical and socio-technical systems: human factors and visualization; self-* social
computers; crowdsourcing and collective awareness;
- Applications and experiences of self-* systems: cyber security, transportation, computational
sustainability, big data and creative commons, power systems.

Contributions must present novel theoretical or experimental results; novel design patterns,
mechanisms, system architectures, frameworks or tools; or practical approaches and experiences in
building or deploying real-world systems and applications. Contributions contrasting different
approaches for engineering a given family of systems, or demonstrating the applicability of a certain
approach for different systems, are equally encouraged. Where relevant and appropriate, accepted
papers will also be encouraged to submit accompanying papers for the Demo or Poster Sessions.

-------------------
 Important Dates
--------------------

Abstract submission: May 2, 2014
Paper submission: May 09, 2014
Notification: June 21, 2014
Camera ready copy due: July 18, 2014
Early registration: August 22, 2014
Conference: September 8 - 12, 2014

---------------------------
Submission Instructions
----------------------------

All submissions should be 10 pages and formatted according to the IEEE Computer Society Press proceedings
style guide and submitted electronically in PDF format. 
Please register as authors and submit your papers using the SASO 2014 conference management system, which
is located at:
https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=saso2014
The proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press, and made available as a part of the IEEE
digital library. Note that a separate call for poster submissions has also been issued.

--------------------
   Review Criteria
--------------------

Papers should present novel ideas in the cross-disciplinary research context described in this call,
clearly motivated by problems from current practice or applied research. 
We expect both theoretical and empirical contributions to be clearly stated, substantiated by formal
analysis, simulation, experimental evaluations, comparative studies, and so on. 
Appropriate reference must be made to related work. Because SASO is a cross-disciplinary conference,
papers must be intelligible and relevant to researchers who are not members of the same specialized
sub-field. Authors are also encouraged to submit papers describing applications. Application papers
are expected to provide an indication of the real world relevance of the problem that is solved, including
a description of the deployment domain, and some form of evaluation of performance, usability, or
comparison to alternative approaches. Experience papers are also welcome but they must clearly state
the insight into any aspect of design, implementation or management of self-* systems which is of benefit
to practitioners and the SASO community
