Interpreted programming languages are increasingly gaining importance in both the commercial and scientific world.

Python, for instance, is used by both Hollywood's digital designers to script visual effects and astronomers, who like it because of its good support for numerical mathmatics. Perl has been the de facto standard for UNIX system administration for almost 20 years now and PHP already drives more than 15 million websites.

This world of interpreted programming languages, to which also C# and Java belong, is changing: New platforms and runtime environments like Microsoft.Net or Parrot, which will become the core of Perl 6, emerge while languages like PHP and Python evolve and younger languages like Ruby enter the stage.

The "1st International Workshop on Interpreted Languages" will take this into account and present current developments from the exciting world of interpreted languages as part of the Net.ObjectDays conference that is held September 27-30 in Erfurt, Germany.

Net.ObjectDays is one of the major international conferences on object-oriented and internet-based technologies, concepts, and applications. Based on a strong research and innovation focus, Net.ObjectDays has a tradition in bringing together leading researchers from academia and industry on the one hand and system architects, developers, and users from industry and administration on the other hand.
