Abstract of research paper on Materials engineering, author of scientific article — Mark van den Brand, Ralf Lämmel

Abstract Foreword This is the second edition of the Workshop on Language Descriptions, Tools, and Applications (LDTA). Theme of this workshop is the description of (programming) languages and the development and/or generation of tools for these languages based on formal descriptions. The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from academia and industry interested in the formal definition of languages, and the use of these definitions for the derivation of tools and software applications (e.g., interactive transformation tools, software renovation tools, application generators). The contributions for this workshop are based on all kinds and styles of formal language definition including attribute grammars, algebraic approaches, action semantics, operational semantics, and denotational semantics. Many aspects of the definition of languages, and the derivation of tools and applications are independent of the actual formalism used. The workshop also welcomes contributions to compare formalisms or to discuss the benefits and drawbacks of specific formalisms. The LDTA 2002 program consists of 6 regular peer-reviewed papers, which were selected from 14 submissions, one invited talk by Charles Consel on “Domain-Specific Languages: What, Why, How”, and 4 invited tool demonstrations. The selected papers cover a broad range of themes like: applying rewriting strategies to build interpreters, program slicing based on XML, application of aspect oriented programming and XML, multi-lingual bibliography tooling, and incremental attribute evaluators. The tool demonstrations are concerned with presentations of the new ELAN environment, an environment for action semantics, the Grammar Deployment Kit (GDK), and the ELI system. This volume will be published as volume 65-3 in the series Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS). This series is published electronically through the facilities of Elsevier Science B.V. and its auspices. The volumes in the ENTCS series can be accessed at the URL http://www.elsevier.nl/locate/entcs We would like to thank the program committee members for their help in evaluating the papers and making a scientifically interesting selection. Furthermore, we would like to thank the ETAPS organizing committee for taking care of the local organization of our workshop. We are very pleased that these proceedings are published in the Electronic Notes in Theoretical Computer Science (ENTCS) by Elsevier, which increases the visibility of the LDTA workshop.
