PLDI 2021
Sun 20 - Fri 25 June 2021 Virtual Conference

The Programming Language Mentoring Workshop is designed to broaden the exposure of late-stage undergraduate students and early-stage graduate students to research and career opportunities in programming languages. The workshop program will include technical sessions that cover both the history and current practice of core subfields within programming languages, mentoring sessions that cover effective habits for navigating the research landscape, and social sessions that create opportunities for students to interact with researchers in the field. Applications from underrepresented groups in computing are especially welcome.

PLMW @ PLDI 2021

Based on the success of previous PLMW @ PLDIs in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019, and 2020, we are delighted to announce that PLMW @ PLDI 2021 will be co-located with the conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation. It is currently planned to be held over one full day; the date is yet to be determined. The workshop program will cover important topics such as,

  • How to choose a research topic.
  • How to navigate the ups and downs of a research career.
  • How to leverage communication and your social network to better your research.

Scholarships

PLMW @ PLDI will have scholarships available for students who – without these scholarships – would otherwise be unable to participate. Scholarships will cover full registration fees for both PLMW @ PLDI and the PLDI conference. As PLDI 2021 is a virtual conference, we do not anticipate covering any additional expenses for scholarship recipients.
