Generative and component approaches are revolutionizing software
development just as automation and componentization revolutionized
manufacturing. Key technologies for automating program development are
Generative Programming for program synthesis, Component Engineering for
modularity, and Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) for compact problem-
oriented programming notations.

The International Conference on Generative Programming and Component
Engineering is a venue for researchers and practitioners interested in
techniques that use program generation and component deployment to increase
programmer productivity, improve software quality, and shorten the time-to-
market of software products. In addition to exploring cutting-edge
techniques of generative and component-based software, our goal is to
foster further cross-fertilization between the software engineering and the
programming languages research communities.


Research papers

10 pages in SIGPLAN proceedings style with 10 pt. font size
(sigplanconf.cls with the [10pt] option, see
http://www.sigplan.org/authorInformation.htm) reporting original and
unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, or experimental
research that contributes to scientific knowledge in the areas listed below
(the PC chair can advise on appropriateness).

Tool demonstrations

Tool demonstrations should present tools that implement generative and
component-based software engineering techniques, and are available for use.
Any of the GPCE'12 topics of interest are appropriate areas for tool
demonstrations. Purely commercial tool demonstrations will not be accepted.
Submissions have to contain a tool description of 4 pages in SIGPLAN
proceedings style with 10 pt. font size (sigplanconf.cls with the [10pt]
option) and a demonstration outline including screenshots of up to 4 pages.
The four page tool description will, if the demonstration is accepted, be
published in the proceedings. The four page demonstration outline will only
be used by the program committee for evaluating the submission.

Tech talks

Tech talks are about an hour in length and, similarly to tutorials, do not
need to present original new research material. Unlike longer tutorials,
these talks cannot be very interactive, and should instead aim to be
'keynote' style presentations. Please see the tech talks call for
contributions for details:


Please contact the chairs (chairs at gpce.org) if you would like to organize a
workshop of interest to the GPCE audience.

Special issue: Science of Computer Programming

After the conference, the authors of distinguished papers will be invited
to submit extended versions of their papers to a GPCE special issue of the
journal Science of Computer Programming.


GPCE seeks contributions in software engineering and in programming
languages related (but not limited) to:

* Generative programming
 + Reuse, meta-programming, partial evaluation, multi-stage and multi-
   level languages, step-wise refinement, generic programming, automated
   code generation
 + Semantics, type systems, symbolic computation, linking and explicit
   substitution, in-lining and macros, templates, program transformation
 + Runtime code generation, compilation, active libraries, synthesis from
   specifications, development methods, generation of non-code artifacts,
   formal methods, reflection

* Generative techniques for
 + Product-line architectures
 + Distributed, real-time and embedded systems
 + Model-driven development and architecture
 + Resource bounded/safety critical systems.

* Component-based software engineering
 + Reuse, distributed platforms and middleware, distributed systems,
   evolution, patterns, development methods, deployment and configuration
   techniques, formal methods

* Integration of generative and component-based approaches

* Domain engineering and domain analysis
 + Domain-specific languages including visual and UML-based DSLs

* Separation of concerns
 + Aspect-oriented and feature-oriented programming,
 + Intentional programming and multi-dimensional separation of concerns

* Applications of the above in industrial scenarios or to real-world
 problems, bridging the gap between theory and practice

* Empirical studies
 + Original work in any of the areas above where there is a substantial
   empirical dimension to the work being presented. Such contributions
   might take the form of a case/field study, comparative analysis,
   controlled experiment, survey or meta-analysis of previous studies.

Incremental improvements over previously published work should have been
evaluated through systematic, comparative, empirical, or experimental
evaluation. Submissions must adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy
(http://www.sigplan.org/republicationpolicy.htm). Please contact the
program chair if you have any questions about how this policy applies to
your paper (chairs at gpce.org).
