CoRTA 2009 - Compilers, Programming Languages, Related Technologies and Applications

CoRTA (3nd edition) is a forum where researchers, developers, educators, research students and practitioners exchange ideas and information on the latest academic or industrial work in compiler technology, programming language design and implementation and their application.


The conference emphasizes theoretical, practical and experimental work and invites "research papers" but also "position papers" and "extended abstract" on methods and tools for all aspects of compiler technology and all language paradigms. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  •   compilation and interpretation techniques
  •   program representation and analysis
  •   code generation
  •   code optimization
  •   run-time techniques
  •   memory management
  •   dynamic and just-in-time compilation
  •   virtual machines
  •   programming tools
  •   programming, refactoring and debugging environments
  •   formal techniques for compilation and execution
  •   design of novel language constructs and their implementation
  •   programming language concepts and methodologies.


A selection of accepted papers will be invited for a special issue of the Journal of Computer Science and Information Systems. See the conference website for more details.

Important Dates

  •   Submission deadline    June 5 14, 2009
  •   Author notification    June 26 30, 2009

Invited talks

Simulation and animation of visual languages

Bastian Cramer, Universitaet Paderborn

Today, visual languages are often used in the software engineering process to specify a system on a high abstraction level. Generator frameworks are often used to generate environments for visual languages. Hence, it is possible to derive even challenging editors for VLs with modest effort and to use them in rapid development processes.
Indeed, today's software design process focuses on static visual languages. The simulation and animation of such a language could bridge the gap between program and program execution which must always be in the programmers mind.
This talk presents how we have extended our VL environment generator DEViL (Development Environment for Visual Languages) with simulation and animation support. Simulation is achieved through a domain analysis and  the reuse of existing specification concepts in DEViL. An animation is automatically derived from a simulation specification. This results in a formal mapping between simulation and animation.
Animation is then a (nearly) linear graphical interpolation which can be adapted by means of 'animation patterns' in a declarative way.

Bastian Cramer received his degree in Computer Science from the University of Paderborn, Germany in 2005. Then he joined the research group 'Programming Languages and Compilers' of Prof. Kastens at the same university. His research focus is the generation of software from specifications and especially the generation of environments for visual domain specific languages. He has several years of experience in language design in corporation with the automotive industry. Currently he is working on his PhD concerning simulation and animation of visual languages.
