Research areas in Programming Languages

Posted 15 December 2015 - 12:35 PM

Hello all

Didn't know where else to post this.
What are some currently trending(in demand or very interesting) research areas in the field of Programming Languages?
I am a 1st year M.Tech(CSE) student from India. I would like to take up some area of programming languages as my research area( because I like programming a lot).
I am asking you and not my guide because I haven't been assigned a guide as yet. Also, I want to get ahead of the class and try and finish my Master within two years and go for internship( some financial constraint also involved).
Please do help me.

Thanks and Regards

Isn't that your area to research based on your own interests and not some internet whim?

I mean basic search terms like "current areas of computer research" yield 919,000,000 some odd results.

I already know a few like visual programming languages and code optimization. I was hoping to get a few things that I don't know about or rather a consolidated list, then download papers on each topic, read and then finally decide. I am sure about PL but what inside PL is the question. To answer that I must know what what inside PL. :)
