Hi my name is Ben Greenman and I am a 2nd year PhD student working with Matthias Felleisen at Northeastern University. This June I will be a humble student volunteer at PLDI. I'm very grateful for travel support from the NSF to make this possible.

Looking forward to meeting new and old friends, drinking coffee on the beach, and attending many interesting talks. Maybe I'll come away with an idea worth presenting at next year's PLDI.

Pre-PLDI 2016

My name is Kirshanthan Sundararajah. I am a PhD student at School of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Purdue University. I am advised by Prof. Milind Kulkarni.

First of all I would like to thank PLMW and NSF for funding my travel to PLDI2016. I hope it will be a great experience to participate as a student volunteer in PLDI2016.

This is my very first time attending PLDI. I hope to gain critical knowledge on research areas of my interest. My research interest spans the areas programming languages, compilers and operating systems. I am specifically interested in enhancing the performance of irregular programs through compiler transformations. I am looking forward to meet pioneers and peer researchers to discuss about exciting research ideas. See you all at Santa Barbara.


I am coming, PLDI 2016

First, thanks for the travel grant support from ACM and thanks for giving me the opportunity to be a student volunteer in PLDI 2016.

My name is Qingkai SHI from the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. My advisor is Dr. Charles Zhang. Our research focuses on how to troubleshoot complex software systems using both static and dynamic program analysis techniques.

This is my second time to attend PLDI, which is the premier forum for all areas of programming language research, including the design, implementation, theory, and efficient use of languages. I am looking forward to meeting experts and researchers from the PL area. There is no doubt that they can teach me a lot.

I am coming, PLDI 2016.
