Mon 20 - Fri 24 October 2014 Portland, Oregon, United States
SPLASH 2015(Tue 28 Oct 2014)

SPLASH 2015 will take place October 25-30, 2015. The conference venue is the Sheraton Station Square Hotel in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, United States.


Inspirations @ SPLASH'14(Thu 23 Oct 2014)

The Inspirations @ SPLASH is collocated with the SPLASH 2014 conference, which is a premiere conference in the field of Programming Languages and Software Engineering.

The purpose of Inspirations is to give promising undergraduate students considering pursuing a graduate degree in this field, or new graduate students looking to get a leg up, an overview of what research in this field looks like, and how to get into and succeed in graduate school. In other words, a combination whirlwind tour of this research area, networking opportunity, and how-to-succeed guide. Inspirations will be held over two days:

  • Friday, Oct 24th, students attend programs from the SPLASH/OOPSLA conference (concluded with a special dinner for Inspirations participants).
  • Saturday, Oct 25th, students attend programs specifically designed for Inspirations

Participation is by invitation only, based on nominations from faculty at U of Washington, U of Oregon, Oregon State, and Portland State. Organizers Prof Danny Dig and Prof Carlos Jensen (Oregon State University). For questions regarding logistics (e.g., hotel, dinner), please contact Sruti (srinivas@onid.oregonstate.edu).


Lunch at SPLASH (Mon 20 Oct 2014)

SPLASH is not providing lunch for attendees. The hotel restaurant, Truss, is not open for lunch, although the lobby Bistro is open. There are myriad possibilities within a few blocks — this Yelp link may help.

See the Insiders Guide to Portland for many options.

For a true Portland experience, there is a large food cart “pod” on 4th Avenue, South of the Marriott, between Hall and College.
