The 9th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Software Language Engineering (SLE) is devoted to the principles of software languages: their design, their implementation, and their evolution.

SLE 2016 is to be held on 31st October and 1st November 2016, co-located with SPLASH and GPCE in Amsterdam, the Netherlands.

SLE’s mission is to fuse several communities that have traditionally looked at software languages from different and yet complementary perspectives: programming languages, model driven engineering, domain specific languages, semantic web, and from different technological spaces: context-free grammars, object-oriented modeling frameworks, rich data, structured data, object-oriented programming, functional programming, logic programming, term-rewriting, attribute grammars, algebraic specification, etc.

The next edition, SLE 2017, will be co-located with SPLASH 2017.
