About these proceedings
Attribute grammars were introduced over twenty years ago, but they are still not as widely used as could have been hoped initially. This is particularly so in industry, despite their qualities as a specification tool. The aim of this International Workshop on Attribute Grammars and their Applications (WAGA), the first to be entirely devoted to this topic, was to show that they are still the subject of active research and now lead to important, useful and practical applications in various areas. The workshop covered all aspects of attribute grammars, with an emphasis on practical results. This volume includes the text of the three invited talks and 21 submitted papers presented at the workshop. This selection provides a wide view of the diverse research being done in the area. Topics include: - Fundamentals: efficient exhaustive and incremental at- tribute evaluation methods, parallel evaluation, space optimization, relationships with functional, logic and object-oriented programming, and systems. - Applications: compiler construction, natural language processing, and interactive program manipulation.
