Analysis and Programming Languages for Web Applications and Cloud Applications (APLWACA, pronounced "apple-whacka") is a new workshop that provides a forum for exploring and evaluating ideas on the use of program analysis and programming language techniques to improve web and cloud applications. Web applications are distributed systems that communicate using Web protocols, and contain client systems executing within commodity web browsers. Cloud applications are distributed systems that utilize cloud computing technologies.
The focus of the workshop is primarily on reliability, security, and performance of web and cloud applications. Strongly encouraged are proposals of new, speculative ideas; evaluations of new or known techniques in practical settings; and discussions of important existing and emerging problems.
APLWACA 2010 will be held on Sunday June 6 in Toronto, Canada, co-located with PLDI 2010. Please see the PLDI 2010 website for local arrangements.
