Extended deadline: [CFP] AOAsia/Pacific 2014 co-located with FSE 2014

[Apologies if you received this more than once]
==============================================================================
			   Call for Papers:
			  AOAsia/Pacific'14
A one day workshop co-located with FSE 2014 in Hong Kong, November 21, 2014
	     http://prg.is.titech.ac.jp/events/aoasia14/
==============================================================================

* Overview
Separation of concerns is one of the main tenets of software
engineering; it allows developers to reason about a problem in
sensible portions, regardless which phase of the life cycle theyre
working in. Many researchers in software engineering are actually in
the field of advanced software modularization techniques such as
aspect-orientation without realizing it.

A growing number of advanced modularization techniques, including
aspect-oriented programming (AOP) and context-oriented programming
(COP), are investigated to support separation of concerns in software
development. Those techniques need dedicated support for analysis of
artifacts at the various stages of software development. Developers
need to be able to understand, visualize, specify, verify and test,
with existence of those advanced modularization techniques,
requirements, architectures, designs and programs to make it an
industrially viable technology. Tool support is further needed for the
identification of latent (non-modularized) crosscutting concerns in
legacy software and for their subsequent refactoring into modules.

AOAsia/Pacific is a series of international workshops on advanced
modularization techniques not specific to AOP nor COP initially
organized by Asia/Pacific-related researchers in cooperation with many
researchers all over the world. One of the aims for this workshop is
to bring together researchers, who are tackling the problems of
advanced separation of concerns, but who are not yet connected to this
growing, thriving community. The workshop also intends to provide a
forum for discussion of new ideas, new directions, and new
applications.

Though the workshop title contains the term “Asia/Pacific”, it is
open to everyone all over the world who are interested in advanced
modularization techniques. We welcome your involvement!

* Topics of Interest
We invite novel contributions on any topics in advanced software
modularization techniques including (but not limited to)
- Applications and tools
- Software architectures and product lines
- Aspect interference and composition
- Contracts, components and aspects
- Model Driven Architecture and UML
- Software development methods and patterns
- Reverse engineering and refactoring
- Reflection and meta programming
- Semantics and type systems
- Verification, validation and testing
- Distributed systems and middleware
- Evolution and adaptability
- Evaluation and metrics

* Workshop Format
The planned workshop format is poster presentation and a short
lightning talk. One or two supervisors are assigned for each
presentation and lead discussions.

* Submissions
Two separate paper submission deadlines and review stages are
offered. Papers accepted in the first round will be published in ACM
DL and our workshop proceedings and presented at the workshop. Papers
accepted in the secound round will be published in only our workshop
proceedings and presented at the workshop and will not be published in
ACM DL.  

Short papers must be formatted according to ACM SIG format and can be
submitted via [EasyChair] as a PDF file of at most 3 pages. Paper
submission deadlines for the first and secound rounds are July 18,
2014 and October 1, 2014, respectively. Authors in the first and
secound round will be notified of the acceptance or rejection of their
submissions by August 4, 2014 and October 15, 2014.

Left-most derivation with Earley Parsing

Hello,

I am currently trying to implement Earley Parsing.  My ultimate goal
is to combine all the advantages of OMeta and Earley parsing:

- OMeta can handle some context-sensitive grammars.
- OMeta's prioritised choice have obvious semantics.
- Earley work on left-recursive grammars out of the box.
- Earley doesn't require explicit look-ahead.

One crucial aspect of this is the handling of ambiguity.  Basically, I
want to chose a parse tree automatically, in an obvious way, while
letting the user have some control.  For this, OMeta's prioritised
choice is beautiful.

And this is where I am stuck.  I don't know how to turn my heap of
Earley states into a parse tree that makes sense.  I could chose an
arbitrary parse tree of course, but that wouldn't be acceptable.  I
want a *predictable* choice.

I *believe* I want to find the left-most derivations that is based on
prioritised choice.  But I don't know how to get it.

---

Here is an example, so you can have a feel of my progress so far.
First, One sweet ambiguous grammar:

  A -> A A
  A -> 'b'

Second, an input: "bbb"

The derivation I want with this grammar is this one:

A => AA => AAA => bAA => bbA => bbb

Which yields the following parse tree:

      A
     / \
    A   A
   / \  |
  A   A b
  |   |
  b   b

Note that there is another leftmost derivation:

A => AA => bA => bAA => bbA => bbb

Which yields a different parse tree:

    A
   / \
  A   A
  |  / \
  b A   A
    |   |
    b   b

The difference between the two is how I derived the symbol 'A' in the
third step: I can chose 'AA', or I can chose 'b'.  If I want to
respect prioritised choice, the first parse tree is the correct one.

Alas, I don't have direct access to those derivations, or to the
resulting parse trees.  Instead, I have these Earley states:

=== 1 ===
1  (1)  A -> • A A
2  (1)  A -> • 'b'

=== 2 ===
1  (1)  A -> 'b' •   (1,2| b )
2  (1)  A -> A • A   (1,1|2,1)
3  (2)  A -> • A A
4  (2)  A -> • 'b'

=== 3 ===
1  (2)  A -> 'b' •   (2,4| b )
2  (1)  A -> A A •   (2,2|3,1)
3  (2)  A -> A • A   (2,3|3,1)
4  (1)  A -> A • A   (1,1|3,2)
5  (3)  A -> • A A
6  (3)  A -> • 'b'

=== 4 ===
1  (3)  A -> 'b' •   (3,6| b )
2  (2)  A -> A A •   (3,3|4,1)
3  (1)  A -> A A •   (3,4|4,1) (2,2|4,2)
4  (3)  A -> A • A   (3,5|4,1)
5  (2)  A -> A • A   (2,3|4,2)
6  (1)  A -> A • A   (1,1|4,3)
7  (4)  A -> • A A
8  (4)  A -> • 'b'

- The 1st column is just an index.
- The 2nd column is the starting point of the state.
- The 3rd column is the grammar rule (the dot indicates where we are).
- The 4th column is a list of back pointers the states that could have
  triggered the creation of the current one (If there is more than
  one set of pointers, this means ambiguity.)

I *think* I understand the tree structure behind those back pointers.
But I can't find the left-most derivation I want from there.  I
basically have two problems:

  - These are *back* pointers.  Any ambiguity is revealed from the
    *right* side of the rule.  I don't want a rightmost derivation, I
    want a leftmost.
  - Some ambiguities are not readily solvable through prioritised
    choice:  sometimes, the Earley sets mentioned by the child
    pointers don't differ by rule, only by how much input they
    consumed.

I tried not working with the back pointers directly.  It is possible
for instance to construct a forward chain from the backward one.  Here
is what I got:

=== 1 ===
1  (1)  A -> • A A   (2,2|2,1) (3,4|3,2)
2  (1)  A -> • 'b'   (2,1| b )

=== 2 ===
1  (1)  A -> 'b' •
2  (1)  A -> A • A   (3,2|3,1) (4,3|4,2)
3  (2)  A -> • A A   (3,3|3,1)
4  (2)  A -> • 'b'   (3,1| b )

=== 3 ===
1  (2)  A -> 'b' •
2  (1)  A -> A A •
3  (2)  A -> A • A   (4,2|4,1)
4  (1)  A -> A • A   (4,3|4,1)
5  (3)  A -> • A A
6  (3)  A -> • 'b'   (4,1| b )

=== 4 ===
1  (3)  A -> 'b' •
2  (2)  A -> A A •
3  (1)  A -> A A •
4  (3)  A -> A • A
5  (2)  A -> A • A
6  (1)  A -> A • A
7  (4)  A -> • A A
8  (4)  A -> • 'b'

It doesn't make much sense.  The child pointers point to end states,
not to start states.  And there is also one too many ambiguity here.
So, I figured I may need something more like the SPPF format described
by Elizabeth Scott (2008).  I don't fully understand this format
however, and the algorithms she described to generate it are still
impenetrable to me.  Anyway, that wouldn't be enough for my leftmost
derivation.

Ian promised us something easy to implement in his "To Trap a Better
Mouse" talk¹, but the rabbit hole seems to be a bit deeper than that.

[1]: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EGeN2IC7N0Q&t=42m0s

---

Hence my question: how do we find a leftmost derivation with Earley
parsing?  Is there a paper, or a tutorial somewhere?

Thanks,
Loup.

Xanadu has a heartbeat!

Thought I'd let folks know that the Xanadu project has made some very good progress. They now have a mostly-finished implementation in Javascript.

Mill CPU architecture specification

I don’t think anything about the mill has been posted here before.

Here Ivan covers the way entire architecture families are generated from specifications. Including programmatically defining ASM code in a high level language (C++ in this case) but there’s conceptual overlap in how Maru allows defining ASM formats via a function call.

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?

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

I am very interested in learning more about the state of the art in the "communicating with aliens" problem mentioned here and other places.

What techniques have been developed or considered for this?

One technique I have seen references to are method locators (referenced in the VPRI published papers).  Are there other techniques as well?

Any pointers to information would be most welcome.

Thanks very much!

Communicating with Aliens Problem

Greetings!  Long time lurker, first time poster.

I am very interested in learning more about the state of the art in the "communicating with aliens" problem mentioned here and other places.

What techniques have been developed or considered for this?

One technique I have seen references to are method locators (referenced in the VPRI published papers).  Are there other techniques as well?

Any pointers to information would be most welcome.

Thanks very much!
    -Shawn.

Hi,

Two announcements. First, the official Call for Submissions is up.

Second, we will be at StrangeLoop too. We are partnering with Alex Payne and his Emerging Languages Camp to run FPW on the day before StrangeLoop. You can submit for SPLASH or Stran geLoop or both. See the Call for more details.

Now you have twice the motivation to do a killer demo. Get on it!
