Advanced Topics in DSL Design and Implementation
PhD Course on "Advanced Topics in Domain Specific Language Design and Implementation"
Here you can find information about the PhD course for Spring semester 2015.
Teachers: Andrzej Wasowski. Claus Brabrand. Aleksandar Dimovski.
Registration: firstname.lastname@example.org (Aleksandar Dimovski)
Format: Research seminar. Presentation and discussion 90 minutes a session, 10 sessions. The course participants are supposed to read the paper before the scheduled discussion slots.
Participants take turns presenting the material. Everybody is expected to actively participate in the discussions.
Assessment: Presentation of at least one paper and active participation throughout the seminar is required for passing the course.
Meetings: Our weekly meetings are every Monday from 12:30 till 13:55 starting from 13th April.
4A05 (13.04, 20.04, 27.04, 04.05, 11.05, 18.05, 01.06, 08.06, 15.06, 22.06)
The research seminar will be devoted to mechanism for defining, implementing and analyzing semantics of diverse modeling languages (with minor necessary excursions into issues of syntax).
