This year's PLDI in Toronto, Canada features the 2nd FIT session for Fun Ideas and Thoughts. FIT follows in the spirit of sessions held at other conferences that feature Wild And Crazy Ideas (aka WACI). As FIT organizers, we believed that such venues can nurture budding ideas, and evidence has shown that ideas presented in such venues eventually materialize into high quality conference publications.
We evaluated 12 submissions in response to the call for Fun and Interesting Thoughts, and selected 8 for presentation. We received permission to post all 12 submission to this blog. For the presented papers, we will also post the slides after the conference. We encourage everyone to comment on the ideas, but please do so respectfully and critically: convince the reader why your point of view is valid.
We hope that this online forum fosters ongoing discussion of fun and interesting thoughts and in turn provides positive feedback to the authors, potentially leading to new research, collaboration, and opportunities.
Your interest and feedback will make FIT a success.
