## Symposium

Software systems are the engines of modern information society. Our ability to cope
with the increasing complexity of software systems is limited by the programming
languages we use to build them. Bridging the gap between domain concepts and
the implementation of these concepts in a programming language is one of the core
challenges of software engineering. Modern programming languages have considerably
reduced this gap, but often still require low-level programmatic encodings of domain

On Thursday January 16 and Friday January 17, 2014, TU Delft hosts a symposium
on the future of programming, which will provide an overview of the challenges in
software development and programming languages and visions to their solution from
different angles by a line-up of distinguished national and international speakers
from academia and industry.

The symposium is followed by the inaugural speech of Eelco Visser on the occasion
of his appointment as Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Professor at TU Delft.
