at the 2009 Conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI).
Tuesday, June 16, 2009
We thank everyone who submitted a FIT paper. The following 7 papers were selected for presentation. You can read these papers, and a few of the other submissions on the FITness blog or follow the individual links below.Presented ideas
FIT follows in the spirit of Wild And Crazy Ideas (aka WACI) presented at past ASPLOS, DAC, and other conferences. FIT provides a venue for ideas that present fresh insights, unveil surprising ideas, identify hidden trends, or that are simple neat and fun for a PLDI audience. Unlike PLDI conference talks that typically propose complete solutions with a full set of results, Fun and Interesting Thoughts should promote revolutionary ideas and inspire discussion. The format of the session is anticipated to be a series of 8-10 minutes talks with time for a few questions. Topics of submission are expected to be consistent with the mission of PLDI. We explicitly decline to list specific topic areas.
Call for FIT Papers
We are looking for new ideas, insights, concepts and problem formulations, not for definitive and polished answers to long-standing problems. Speakers will have to convince the audience with insights that their forward-looking idea is worth thinking about. Here are some very general guidelines for a "fit" submission:
Submitted papers will be published online in a FITness blog. We hope that "fit" papers will generate a buzz that lasts beyond the conference. Attendees and the community will be encouraged to blog their reactions and comments to the papers.Important Dates
Please send submissions by the deadline to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include a complete list of authors, their affiliations and contact information (e.g., address, telephone number, and email address), and please identify the corresponding author with your submission.
