Submission Website:

The European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP) is the 
premium international conference covering all areas of object technology 
and related software development technologies. ECOOP 2013 will take 
place from the 1st to the 5th of July, 2013 in Montpellier, France. The 
2013 edition will be the 27th of the ECOOP conferences series and will 
embrace a broad range of topics related to object-orientation, including:
- Aspects, components, modularity, and reflection
- Concurrent and parallel systems
- Databases and object persistence
- Distributed and cloud computing, mobile systems
- Programming environments, virtualization
- Versioning, refactoring, software evolution
- Language definition and design
- Language implementation, execution environments, compiler construction
- Testing, profiling, and performance analysis
- Metrics and empirical studies
- Software modeling, meta-modelling
- Memory management, garbage collection
- Object ownership
- Design methods and design patterns
- Real-time systems
- Security
- Frameworks, product lines, and software architectures
- Specification, verification, model checking, program synthesis
- Theoretical foundations, program analysis, and type systems
- Service-oriented and Web programming

ECOOP 2013 solicits high quality submissions describing original and 
unpublished results. Papers will be evaluated according to originality 
and significance, precision and correctness, presentation and clarity, 
and relevance. Incremental improvements over previously published work 
should have been evaluated through systematic, comparative, empirical or 
experimental evaluation. Submissions of papers describing groundbreaking 
approaches to emerging problems will be considered based on timeliness 
and potential impact.

Only papers that have not been published and are not under review for 
publication elsewhere can be submitted. Double submissions will be 
rejected without review. Authors are required to disclose prior 
publication (formal or informal) of parts of the paper submitted to 
ECOOP or of closely related papers. Such prior publications must be 
notified to the ECOOP 2013 program chair, cited in the submission and 
their relationship to the current submission explained. Authors are also 
required to inform the ECOOP 2013 program chair about closely related 
work submitted to another conference while the ECOOP submission is under 

Submissions will be carried out electronically via CyberChair. Papers 
must be written in English, and be no longer than 25 pages, including 
references, appendices and figures, and written using the LNCS style. 
For more information about formatting please consult the Springer LNCS 
web site at http://www.springer.com. Clearly marked additional 
appendices, not intended for the final publication, containing 
supporting proofs, analyses, statistics, etc, may be included beyond the 
25 page limit. The paper must stand alone, however, and reviewers are 
under no obligation to read any additional appendices. Reviewers are 
more likely to consult additional appendices rather than separate 
technical reports. ECOOP papers will be reviewed by the programme 
committee and additional expert reviewers.  Authors will be given a 
60-hours period (from Saturday 9 February 2013, 11:00 American Samoa 
time to Monday 11 February 2013 23:00 American Samoa time) to read and 
respond to the reviews of their papers before the PC meeting. Rebuttals 
will have no length limit but concision will be highly appreciated by 
the program committee.

For ECOOP 2013, submissions that have been submitted but not accepted by 
previous prestigious conferences (such as ECOOP, OOPSLA, POPL, PLDI, 
ESOP, ICSE, or AOSD) may additionally submit a Note to Reviewers. The 
Note to Reviewers should a) identify the previous venue(s) (e.g. ECOOP 
'12, OOPSLA '10); b) list the major issues identified by the reviews at 
those venues; and c) describe the changes made to the paper in response 
to those reviews.

Artifact Evaluation:
To reward creation of artifacts and replication of experiments, authors 
of accepted research papers can have their artifacts (tools, data, 
models, videos...) evaluated by an Artifact Evaluation Committee. 
Artifacts that pass muster will be recognized formally, and be 
fast-tracked for additional presentation. Artifacts that are deemed 
especially meritorious will be singled out for special recognition in 
the proceedings and at the conference.
