Distinguished paper at Principles of Programming Language conference


Congratulations to Sam Staton (and co-writers Matthijs Vákár and Ohad Kammar), whose paper ‘A Domain Theory for Statistical Probabilistic Programming’ picked up a distinguished paper award at the Principles of Programming Languages conference (POPL), which took place in Portugal this week.

Distinguished paper awards are new in POPL this year, awarded to at most 10% of the accepted papers (6 awards out of 77 accepted papers this year). They highlight papers that the POPL program committee thinks should be read by a broad audience due to their relevance, originality, significance and clarity. The selection of the distinguished papers was based on the final version of the paper and through a second review process.
