Currently at OOPSLA 09 and have just scribed for the DSM 09 Workshop and co-organized the 3rd KISS workshop. Interesting that in both these workshops there seems a great deal of interest in language components. This chimes with Role-based Approach Towards Modular Language Engineering presented at SLE 09. Domain Specific Languages researchers seems to be looking for a way to define languages using reusable fragments. Of course there is no consensus on what a language component is, but the term 'semantics' comes up alot. Laurie Tratt and are working on this issue and have termed the overall approach 'Language Factories'. Our paper is to be presented at Onward! 09.
