UW PLSE Reading Group (Spring 2015) (Wed 3:30pm in CSE 203)

We’ll be reading and discussing exciting recent papers from the programming languages and software engineering communities. Participants should subscribe to the 590p mailing list. Note the list also has many current and former department members interested in programming languages.

Some paper links may point into the ACM Digital Library or the Springer online collection. Using a UW IP address, or the UW libraries’ off-campus access, should provide access.

A classic:
