Workshop on Attribute Grammars
Published on in ORCHESTRATION (PATH ACTIVITIES)
A workshop on attribute grammars was organized by Prof. Uwe Aßmann -- Chair of Software Technology at the TU Dresden, and Prof. Wolf Zimmermann - Chair of Software Engineering and Programming Languages at the Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg and took place on February 2nd, 2016.
The talks included various topics, such as possible application areas of attribute grammars, engineering and optimizing domain specific languages and runtime models. The used attribute grammar formalisms ranged from Ordered Attribute Grammars to Rewritable Reference Attribute Grammars.
A lively discussion of similarities, differences and overlaps followed the nine talks. For instance, both groups use attribute grammars to generate sets of linear equations to solve various, domain-specific problems.
Another workshop to follow up on the lively discussion and to intensify the exchange of the groups is expected to take place in May 2016.
