CoRTA 2011 (5th edition) is a track of INForum 2011 to be held in Coimbra, Portugal, on September 8-9th, 2011.

CoRTA is a forum where researchers, developers, educators exchange ideas and information on the latest academic or industrial work on language design, processing, assessment and applications thereof.

The conference focuses on theoretical, practical and experimental work and invites research papers but also short “position” papers as well as "posters or tool demos" on methods and tools for all aspects of compiler technology, code analysis, and all language paradigms. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
  • Compilation and interpretation techniques
  • Program representation and analysis
  • Code generation
  • Code optimization
  • Run-time techniques
  • Memory management
  • Dynamic and just-in-time compilation
  • Virtual machines
  • Programming tools
  • Programming, refactoring and debugging environments
  • Formal techniques for compilation and execution
  • Design of novel language constructs and their implementation
  • Programming language concepts and methodologies.

Previous editions of CoRTA were held in Braga (2010), Lisbon (2009), Bragança (2008) and Covilhã (2007). Starting with the 2009 edition, CoRTA has been organized as part of INForum.
