The Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages (POPL) is an annual gathering of thought leaders from around the world to discuss all aspects of programming languages and systems, so it is a given that as the 40th instance of the event gets under way in Rome on Jan. 23, Microsoft Research will be providing robust support.Twenty-two papers, co-written by a total of 36 Microsoft Research scientists, were selected for presentation during the symposium, which concludes Jan. 25, and its co-located events—which began Jan. 20 and run through Jan. 26. Twenty attendees, spanning the Research in Software Engineering team from Microsoft Research Redmond, the Programming Principles and Tools group from Microsoft Research Cambridge, and the Programming Languages and Tools unit from Microsoft Research India.It’s only natural, says Judith Bishop, director of Computer Science for Microsoft Research Connections.“Microsoft has a long tradition of innovation in programming languages,” she says, “with C# and F# being two that have become part of the Windows ecosystem in the past decade. Microsoft Research also looks ahead at the wider issues discussed during POPL on how principles underpin practice.“Security of code, speedup through concurrency, and abstraction for easier creation of code are all aspects covered by our researchers. With researchers in programming-languages groups in three Microsoft Research labs across the globe, POPL serves as a forum where we can meet other experts and inspire the upcoming talents of new graduates.”In addition to serving as a sponsor of the event, Microsoft Research will be involved in a broad array of POPL activities, including:
