SCRIPT Workshop

Vrije University is hosting the SCRIPT Workshop.
Workshop on Secure Cloud and Reactive Internet Programming Technology
When and where?
The workshop will take place 12 to 13th of November 2013 at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel in Brussels, Belgium.
Theme and Goal of the Workshop
With the advent of JavaScript as a mature and powerful programming language running in the web browser, the web has changed for good from a mere document delivery service to a true distributed computing platform. Scripts now regularly use asynchronous message passing to send complex, structured data back and forth among distributed machines.
Unfortunately JavaScript was never designed to serve as a language to build advanced reliable and secure distributed applications. This has recently given rise to a number of language design initiatives that use the JavaScript infrastructure as an advanced virtual machine on top of which new web languages can be implemented.
We feel that we have only seen the tip of the iceberg on this subject and that many new language design initiatives will follow. The goal of the SCRIPT workshop (Secure Cloud and Reactive Internet Programming Technology) is to gather expert language designers and to let them present their view on the state of the art in this domain. SCRIPT is a workshop, not just a symposium, and the audience is more than welcome to actively engage with the speakers during and after the talks.
Speakers include:

Eelco Visser (Delft U., NL)
Daan Leijen (MS Research Redmond, US)
Manuel Serrano (INRIA Sophia-Antipolis, FR)
Adam Koprowski (Google, US)
Sébastien Doeraene (EPFL, CH)
Mario Südholt (Ecole des Mines de Nantes, FR)
Philip Wadler (U Edinborough, UK)
Gavin Bierman (MS Research Cambridge, UK)
Shriram Krishnamurthi (Brown U., US)
Adam Chlipala (MIT, US)

I'm looking forward to it!
