Welcome to the PLV@NUS club!

The seminar series are aimed at strengthening the synergy between multiple NUS SoC researchers working in different areas related to design and implementation of programming languages, and verification. Of particular interest are such topics as program synthesis, repair, static analysis, type systems and logics, as well as their applications to security, privacy, algorithms and ML.

Meeting Schedule

The remaining meetings in Spring 2020 are cancelled to avoid unnecessary risks of exposing the attendees to COVID-19. Seminar series will continue in Autumn 2020.

Kinds of Talks to Give

A typical talk takes roughly 1 hour or less, including a Q&A session. The following types of talks are welcomed:

  • Paper-based talk, focused on presenting the speaker's own work or some paper they have read and would like to discuss. The paper is announced in advance, so the others would have a chance to read it before the meeting.
  • Work-in-Progress talk, dedicated to discussing some promising, but not yet published work.
  • Practice talk for conferences and workshops. As those are usually short, we can have 2-3 talks in a single session.
  • Trip report - a collection of 3-5 short summaries of the conference talks recently attended by the speaker
  • Invited talk by the guests of the department

More suggestions are welcome!

Contributing with a Talk
