Higher-Order and Symbolic Computation: Editorial


Danvy, O et al. Higher-Order Symb Comput (2009) 22: 113. doi:10.1007/s10990-009-9045-9


Higher-Order and Symbolic Computation is an international journal that presents a broad-spectrum forum for discussion of results and ideas on programming with higher-order and symbolic facilities: first-class functions and continuations, effects and higher-order types, objects, actors, and programs as data. Contents include papers ranging from theory and design to practice and experience and especially about theory used in practice. The journal promotes the exchange of ideas and synergy among researchers with a wide range of interests and expertise.

Coverage includes functional programming with effects; object-oriented programming; parallel, concurrent, distributed, and mobile symbolic and functional computation; programming concepts and abstractions – data abstraction, lazy evaluation, infinite data objects, self reference, reflection, continuations, components, generic functions, inheritance, encapsulation, protection, persistence, meta-objects, communication protocols, and more.
