PLOS 2017 Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems
October 28, 2017, Shanghai, China

9th Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems (PLOS 2017)

October 28, 2017
Shanghai, China

In conjuction with the
26th ACM Symposium on Operating Systems Principles (SOSP '17)


Historically, OS development and programming language development went hand-in-hand. Although C is the workhorse language of the systems community today, novel approaches to OS construction based on new programming language ideas continue to be an active and important area of research. The connection between OS development and programming languages is both significant and current.

The goal of the PLOS workshop series is to bring together researchers and developers from the programming languages (PL) and the operating systems (OS) domains to discuss recent work at the intersection of these fields. PLOS is a platform for discussing visions, challenges, experiences, problems, and solutions arising from the application of advanced programming and software engineering concepts to operating systems construction, and vice versa.
