The eighth workshop (SIGPX)

SIGPX is a Japanese domestic study group for those interested in programming environments and their programming experience, founded in January 2016. We gather for exchanging information on state-of-the-art research and development projects relevant to programming experience. This page shows the overview of its eighth workshop.


17 researchers (including 6 students) attended the event, introducing their latest research work. The attendees provided about 20min presentations and received feedback through discussions and Slack messages.

We are using the Slack team and Google Docs for fostering discussions during and even after the event. Let me know if you are interested in participation, though the primary language is Japanese.
