  • JFP Special Issue on Gradual Typing
  • 03 Jul 2019,
  • The field of gradual typing has grown exponentially over the past decade, both in terms of research and industrial adoption. Gradual typing, the idea of adding/strengthening types in existing programs, demands work on design, theory, implementation, and usability. As such, the field deserves a special journal issue with reflective papers.
