WGP'09 Proceedings of the 2009 ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Generic Programming
Edited book, 2009
It is our great pleasure to welcome you to the ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Generic Programming 2009 - WGP 2009, held in Edinburgh, UK, on 30th August 2009. The workshop is sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN and is affiliated with the 14th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2009). Previous Workshops on Generic Programming have been held in Marstrand (affiliated with MPC), Ponte de Lima (affiliated with MPC), Nottingham (informal workshop), Dagstuhl (IFIP TC2/IFIP WG2.1 Working Conference), Oxford (informal workshop), Utrecht (informal workshop), Portland (affiliated with ICFP), and Victoria (affiliated with ICFP).
The call for papers generated 14 submissions. Each paper was evaluated by at least three members of the programme committee with the help of additional reviewers. During a five-day virtual meeting, the programme committee selected 8 papers for presentation at the workshop. The papers cover a variety of generic programming topics, including staging, aspects, component frameworks, parametricity and dependent types. We hope that the proceedings will serve as a valuable reference for both researchers and students.
