Welcome to the homepage of IFIP TC-2 working group on Program Generation (WG 2.11)

Program Generation (WG 2.11)

Program generation has the potential to revolutionize software development in the same way that automation and components revolutionized manufacturing. Current research in this area targets a host of technical problems both at the foundational and engineering levels. The aim of this IFIP Working Group of researchers and practitioners is to promote progress in this area.

Current Activity

The next meeting will be in Boston, USA in April 29-May 2nd 2019. WG211/M19Schedule
