Compilers and the programming languages they compile, are due for a make-over. This talk identifies disparities between what is demanded of programming languages in the twenty-first century and what is provided by current programming techniques.

It suggests directions in which notations might develop to meet this challenge, taking examples from well-known and some not so well-known languages. It outlines a research project to develop industrial strength notations, compilers and software tools that meet the challenge.
