Programming Languages and Systems

Professor Alex Aiken, EECS, CS Division


Programming language research has traditionally focused on developing better programming languages and compilers. Recently, however, the field has been undergoing a transformation and suddenly new and previously unimagined ways of delivering programming language technology are emerging, leading to new research directions and exciting collaborations with other areas of EECS. This talk will sketch out the new directions, the continued importance of work in language design and compilers, and how ongoing research at Berkeley fits into this big picture.
