History of programming languages Conferences


ACM SIGPLAN Conferences on the History of Programming Languages

In 1978, the first History of Programming Language Conference (HOPL) described the development of 13 computer programming languages, the people who participated in that work, and the context in which it was undertaken. In 1993, HOPL-II contained 14 papers on the genesis and evolution of programming languages. In 2007, HOPL-III was held in conjunction with Federated Computing Research Conference (FCRC 2007) in San Diego.
