Tom Dinkelaker (Darmstadt University, Germany)
Tom Dinkelaker is a last-year PhD student and has German Diploma in computer science from the Technische Universitaet Darmstadt. His research focuses on the implementation of embedded domain-specific languages, and aspect-oriented programming languages. To provide support for customizing languages, he is exploring the potentials of meta-object protocols to enable open language semantics. Tom has embedded a set of languages those syntax and semantics can be extended by language developers or end users in order to customize them for special domains. He was involved in the European Network of Excellence on Aspect-Oriented Software Development (AOSD-Europe) and the German research project on Feature-Driven, Aspect-Oriented and Model-Driven Software Product Line Development (feasiPLe), he is developing technology for building domain-specific aspect languages with support for extensible syntax and semantics using reflective programming techniques. He was a member of the organizing committee of the previous DSAL workshop (DSAL'10). He was a program committee member of the 4th Workshop on Dynamic Languages and Applications (DyLa'10) at the international conference TOOLS'10. He was the general organizer of the 1st Workshop on Model-Driven Product Line Engineering (MDPLE'09) at the European conference ECMDA'09. He was a supporting reviewer for the AOSD, DLS, FSE, and ESSOS conference series.
Jacques Noyé (Ecole des Mines de Nantes, France)
Jacques Noyé is an assistant professor at Ecole de Mines de Nantes and a member of ASCOLA (ASpect and COmposition LAnguages) a joint project-team of Ecole des Mines de Nantes and INRIA. He is interested in many aspects of programming languages and their implementation, in particular better support for programming in the large. He was a member of the organizing committee of the previous DSAL workshops and co-edited the June 2009 special issue of the IET Software Journal on DSALs. He holds a European doctoral degree in computer science from the University of Rennes (France). He worked from 1985 to 1993 at the European Computer-Industry Research Centre in Munich on many aspects of Prolog implementation, in particular, hardware support, compilation, and parallelism. From 1994 to 1996, he was, within the Compose group at Irisa in Rennes, one of the main designers of Tempo, a partial evaluator for C.
Éric Tanter (University of Chile, Chile)
Éric Tanter is assistant professor at the University of Chile, in the PLEIAD laboratory of the Computer Science Department. His research focuses on programming paradigms and languages for modular and adaptable systems. This includes studying how language mechanisms, computational reflection, program transformation, and aspect-oriented programming can be leveraged to enhance the development of complex software systems. He co-organized several workshops on Pervasive Computing and AOP (at ECOOP, ICPS, AOSD, GPCE). He serves on the PC of many prestigious conferences including AOSD and ECOOP, among others. He holds a PhD from the University of Nantes and University of Chile (2004) as well as a MSc from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (2000).
