NJ Programming Languages and Systems Seminar

Next meeting: Friday, May 10th, 2024 at NYU

Most recent meeting: Friday, Nov 10th, 2023 at Princeton University


The New Jersey Programming Languages and Systems Seminar Series is an informal forum that promotes interaction among programming languages and systems researchers in the New Jersey area. The series provides an opportunity to present unfinished research-in-progress and receive feedback and constructive criticism. We hold one-day meetings every few months, for instance at Agere, AT&T Florham Park, Avaya, Bell Labs Lucent, Rutgers, Princeton, Stevens, or UPenn (New Jersey is a state of mind). Meeting agendas are coordinated by a chair who is selected by popular vote. There are about ten informal talks of about thirty minutes each, usually beginning about 9:00am and ending about 4:00pm. As of 2023, attendance averaged over 50 people.
