Category:Academic conferences

This category contains pages describing academic conferences for research on IDEs. It is interesting that almost all of them were born in 1980s. See the corresponding section in the IDE page for the historical background.

HCI conferences

Major forums for research into human–computer interaction (HCI) were born of 1980s, including the ACM SIGCHI Conference on Human Factors in Computing Systems (called simply CHI since 1982) and ACM Symposium on User Interface Software and Technology (UIST, where the first workshop was held in 1982).

Forums specific to programming also appeared in the 1980s, including the Workshop on Empirical Studies of Programming (1986–1999) and the IEEE Symposium on Visual Languages and Human-Centric Computing (VL/HCC since 1984).

SE and PL conferences

Research into software engineering (SE) and programming language design (PL) was also growing rapidly at this time. The International Conference on Software Engineering (ICSE) has been the premier software engineering conference, and has been cohosted by the ACM and the IEEE since 1975. Recently, LIVE 2013, a workshop on live programming that aims to discuss the concept of "liveness" in programming was held in ICSE. It is a good representative of recent trends, melting the boundaries between SE, PL and HCI research.

Programming language design remains an ongoing research topic, with forums including the ACM SIGPLAN conference on Programming Language Design and Implementation (PLDI), the ACM SIGPLAN-SIGACT Symposium on Principles of Programming Languages (POPL), and the ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages, and Applications (OOPSLA).
