**************** CALL FOR SHORT PAPERS *****************

                    Onward! 2010

The conference for new ideas, new paradigms, and reflections
     on everything to do with programming and software.


Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN in cooperation with SIGSOFT
Co-located with SPLASH 2010 - http://splashcon.org
Reno-Tahoe, Nevada - USA
October 17 – 21, 2010

Short Paper Submission: July 1st, 2010
Short Paper Notification: July 22nd, 2010



Onward! 2010 is opening a second round for the submission of short papers.
Onward!’s focus on forward-thinking papers will be enhanced with this
two-phase approach. Short paper submissions may not exceed 8 pages. This
second round will accept submission of new papers, and also papers from
the first round with a review result of “resubmit after revision”. The
authors may resubmit the revised paper as a short paper with a letter to
the reviewers. The same reviewers will consider the revised paper.

Electronic submission is required through the Onward! website. Text
submissions must follow the standard ACM SIGPLAN format. Detailed author
guidelines are also available at the website. Submissions must not have
been previously published, and must not be concurrently submitted for
publication elsewhere (including journals and formal proceedings of
conferences and workshops). Violation of this policy will result in
desk-rejection of the submission.


Onward! is more radical, more visionary and more open than other
conferences to not so well-proven but well-argued ideas. We welcome
different ways of thinking about, approaching, and reporting on
programming language and software engineering research. Onward! fosters
the multidisciplinarity of software development. We are interested in
anything to do with programming and software. Processes, methods,
languages, art, philosophy, biology, economics, communities, politics,
ethics, and of course applications. Anything!

Sounds good? Do you want to bring new insights to the community? Or you
want to know more about innovations, visions and the future of programming
languages and software engineering? Then... Join Onward!, the unique,
creative and collaborative environment to discuss and investigate
challenging problems related to software, its creation and nurturing.
Onward! is innovative not only with regard to its topics and ideas but
also to the contribution formats. This year, we seek high quality
submissions in one of the following categories:


At Onward! we are interested in papers that describe work with potential
to change significantly the field. But Onward! isn't a venue for just any
old thing - an Onward! paper must say something substantially original,
and must be sufficiently important and interesting to deserve the
attention of the programming and software communities. An Onward! paper
must present some supporting evidence - not pure conjecture. Evidence may
be in the form of a compelling argument or analysis, a sketch of validity,
or an initial implementation. The scope of an Onward! paper can be broad:
It can be single idea, a new approach, or a new paradigm. It can talk
about programming languages, programming methodologies, process, software
engineering, collaboration, and anything to do with programming and
creating software. But above all, an Onward! paper must be well thought
out, well-written, and compelling in its argument. Onward! is a fully
peer-reviewed conference, and accepted papers will appear in the SPLASH
proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.
