Foundations for Scripting Languages (Dagstuhl Seminar 12011)

Robert Hirschfeld, Shriram Krishnamurthi & Jan Vitek
This report documents the program and the outcomes of Dagstuhl Seminar 12011 on the ``Foundations for Scripting Languages''. The choice of ``for'' rather than ``of'' is intentional: it is our thesis that scripting languages are in need of foundations to support their extensive use but lack them, and we hope this event consolidated and advanced the state of the art in this direction.
