Salon des Refusés ("exhibition of rejects") was an 1863 exhibition of artworks rejected from
the official Paris Salon. It displayed works by later famous modernists such as Édouard Manet,
whose paintings were rejected by the conservative jury of the Paris Salon. A similar space
is needed to explore new ways of doing computer science.
Many interesting ideas about programming struggle to find space in the modern programming
language research community, often because they are difficult to evaluate. To provide space for
unorthodox thought provoking ideas, we take inspiration from literary criticism. Papers that
spark an interesting debate among the program committee are presented together with an
attributed critique that discusses the merits of the work.
