PL 2008 is the first summer school on Programming Languages, organized by the PLEIAD laboratory of the University of Chile, together with the Chilean Computer Science Society (SCCC).

This two-day school is intended to provide interested students with an overview of some major topics and research issues in the area of programming languages. It covers a wide range of programming paradigms, as well as challenges and techniques in language design, formalization and implementation.

The program of the school is divided into two parts, one covering basic topics, and the other covering more advanced, research-level issues. Lectures are given by international experts in the fields.

The school is free of charge for participants, but there is a limited number of positions available. Full attendance to the two days is required. Also, due to the international profile of the lectures, good understanding of English is mandatory for all participants. More information on how to apply.

The school is co-located with the Chilean Computing Week (JCC 2008), and will be held in Punta Arenas, in Chilean Patagonia, on November 11th and 12th, 2008.
