4th Workshop on Programming Languages and Operating Systems
(PLOS 2007)

October 18, 2007
Skamania Lodge
Room "Adams"
Stevenson, Washington, USA

Sponsored by ACM SIGOPS

Historically, operating system development and programming language development went hand-in-hand. Cross-fertilization was the norm. Challenges in one area were often approached using ideas or techniques developed in the other, and advances in one enabled new capabilities in both. Today, although the systems community at large retains an iron grip on C, novel approaches to OS construction based on new programming language ideas continue to be an active and important area of research. The systems field continues to provide a wealth of challenge problems and new results that should spark advances in programming languages, software designs, and idioms.

This workshop aims to bring together researchers and developers from the programming language and the operating system domains to discuss recent work at the intersection of these fields. It will be a platform for discussing new visions, challenges, experiences, problems, and solutions arising from the application of advanced programming and software engineering concepts to operating systems construction, and vice versa.
