     Sixth International Workshop on Context-Oriented Programming
      Worokshop in conjunction with ECOOP 2014
                 Uppsala, Sweden, 29 July, 2014



Context information plays an increasingly important role in our
information-centric world. Software systems must adapt to changing
contexts over time and must change even while they are
running. Unfortunately, mainstream programming languages and
development environments do not support this kind of dynamic change
very well, leading developers to implementing complex designs to
anticipate various dimensions of variability. Starting from this
observation, Context-Oriented Programming (COP) has emerged as a
solution to directly support variability depending on a wide range of
dynamic attributes, making it possible to dispatch run-time behavior
on any property of the execution context.

The goal of the 6th Workshop on Context-Oriented Programming (COP-14)
is to further establish context orientation as a common thread to
language design, application development, and system support.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Interesting application domains and scenarios
- Programming language abstractions
- Theoretical foundations
- Configuration languages transformational approaches
- Interaction between non-functional programming concerns and COP
- Modularization approaches plugins
- Programming guidelines and best practices
- Runtime support
- Tooling

Submission guidelines

COP-14 invites submissions of high-quality papers reporting original
research, or describing innovative contributions to, or experience
with COP, its implementation, and application. Papers that depart
significantly from established ideas and practices are particularly
welcome.  Submissions must not have been published previously and must
not be under review for any another refereed event or publication. The
program committee will evaluate each contributed paper based on its
relevance, significance, clarity, and originality.

It is planned to publish accepted papers in the ACM Digital Library,
unless the authors choose not to. In case of publication in the ACM
Digital Library, authors must transfer copyright to ACM upon
acceptance (for government work, to the extent transferable), but
retain various rights (see ACM Copyright Policy. Authors are
encouraged to publish auxiliary material with their paper (source
code, test data, etc.); they retain copyright of auxiliary material.

Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair
(https://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=cop14) in PDF format.
Submissions must be written in English (the official language of the
workshop) and must not exceed 6 pages. They should use the ACM SIGPLAN
10 point format, templates for which are available at
