Scottish Programming Languages Seminar Series

The Scottish Programming Languages Seminar (SPLS) is a forum for discussion of all aspects of programming languages. We meet for a day or afternoon once every few months, at some congenial location in Scotland. Talks by Scots and by visitors are welcome. Please contact us if you would like to host a meeting or give a talk.

Meetings are open, and all are welcome to attend. If you are travelling far or if you do not subscribe to the mailing list, you are advised to contact the organiser to check that there have been no last-minute changes.
