Abstract of research paper on Computer and information sciences, author of scientific article — Barrett Bryant, João Saraiva

Abstract This volume contains the papers presented at the Third Workshop on Language Descriptions, Tools and Applications (LDTA ′03), held in Warsaw, Poland, April 6, 2003, as a satellite event of the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS ′03). LDTA ′03 continues the tradition established with the previous two instances of the workshop which were held in Genoa, Italy (2001) and Grenoble, France (2002), as satellite events of ETAPS. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia and industry interested in the field of formal language definitions and language technologies, with a special emphasis on tools developed for or with these language definitions. Benefits of such active research fields are, among others: program analysis, transformation, generation; the formal analysis of language properties, and the automatic generation of language processing tools. The workshop welcomes contributions on all aspects of formal language definitions, with special emphasis on applications and tools developed for or with these language definitions. The LDTA ′03 program consists of 11 regular papers, which were selected from 25 submissions, and one invited talk by Hassan Aït Kaci on An Abstract and Reusable Programming Language Architecture. The selected papers cover a broad range of themes such as visual languages, parsing, refactoring and coverage techniques, attribute grammars, and frameworks for datatype transformation and register allocation. We also wish to express our gratitude to all the members of the program committee, and to all the outside referees for their care in reviewing the papers. We would like to thank the ETAPS organizing committee for taking care of the local organization of the workshop. Furthermore, we are also very pleased with the sponsorship of ACM SIGPLAN and with the publication of these proceedings in the Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS) by Elsevier.

Abstract

This volume contains the papers presented at the Third Workshop on Language Descriptions, Tools and Applications (LDTA '03), held in Warsaw, Poland, April 6, 2003, as a satellite event of the European Joint Conferences on Theory and Practice of Software (ETAPS '03). LDTA '03 continues the tradition established with the previous two instances of the workshop which were held in Genoa, Italy (2001) and Grenoble, France (2002), as satellite events of ETAPS.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia and industry interested in the field of formal language definitions and language technologies, with a special emphasis on tools developed for or with these language definitions. Benefits of such active research fields are, among others: program analysis, transformation, generation; the formal analysis of language properties, and the automatic generation of language processing tools. The workshop welcomes contributions on all aspects of formal language definitions, with special emphasis on applications and tools developed for or with these language definitions.

The LDTA '03 program consists of 11 regular papers, which were selected from 25 submissions, and one invited talk by Hassan Ait Kaci on An Abstract and Reusable Programming Language Architecture. The selected papers cover a broad range of themes such as visual languages, parsing, refactoring and coverage techniques, attribute grammars, and frameworks for datatype transformation and register allocation.

We also wish to express our gratitude to all the members of the program committee, and to all the outside referees for their care in reviewing the papers. We would like to thank the ETAPS organizing committee for taking care of the local organization of the workshop. Furthermore, we are also very pleased with the sponsorship of ACM SIGPLAN and with the publication of these proceedings in the Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS) by Elsevier.
