This year's Oregon PL Summer School will take place from July 22nd to August 3rd.  The registration deadline is April 16th.  Full information on registration and scholarships an be found here:


The school has a long and successful tradition (sponsored by the NSF, ACM SIGPLAN, and industry).  It covers current research in the theory and practice of programming languages.  Material is presented at a tutorial level that will help graduate students and researchers from academia or industry understand the critical issues and open problems confronting the field.  Prerequisites are an elementary knowledge of logic and mathematics, as covered in undergraduate classes on discrete mathematics, and some knowledge of programming languages at the level of an undergraduate survey course. 
A new feature this year is a Coq boot camp session, to be held on July 21st -- one day before the summer school officially begins.  The boot camp will provide a one-day, intensive, hands-on introduction to the practical mechanics of the Coq proof assistant.  More information is available at the summer school website. 

This year's program is titled Types, Logic, and Verification.  The speakers and topics include: 

Amal Ahmed -- Logical Relations
Northeastern University

Robert Harper -- Type Theory Foundations
Carnegie Mellon University

Dan Licata -- Dependently-Typed Programming in Agda
Carnegie Mellon University and Institute for Advanced Study 

Greg Morrisett -- Coq as a Programming Language

Andrew Tolmach -- Software Foundations in Coq
Portland State University

Stephanie Weirich -- Designing Dependently-Typed Programming Languages
