# SPLASH 2016

The ACM SIGPLAN conference on Systems, Programming, Languages and
Applications: Software for Humanity (SPLASH) embraces all aspects of
software construction, to make it the premier conference at the
intersection of programming, languages, systems, and software engineering.
We invite high quality submissions describing original and unpublished work.

## OOPSLA Research Papers

Papers that address any aspect of software development are welcome,
including requirements, modeling, prototyping, design, implementation,
generation, analysis, verification, testing, evaluation, maintenance,
reuse, replacement, and retirement of software systems. Papers may address
these topics in a variety of ways, including new tools (such as languages,
program analyses, and runtime systems), new techniques (such as
methodologies, design processes, code organization approaches, and
management techniques), and new evaluations (such as formalisms and proofs,
corpora analyses, user studies, and surveys).

Submissions due: Wed 23 March, 2016

## Onward! Research Papers

Onward! is a premier multidisciplinary conference focused on everything to
do with programming and software: including processes, methods, languages,
communities, and applications. Onward! is more radical, more visionary, and
more open than other conferences to ideas that are well-argued but not yet
proven. We welcome different ways of thinking about, approaching, and
reporting on programming language and software engineering research.

Submissions due: Fri 1 April, 2016

## Onward! Essays

Onward! Essays is looking for clear and compelling pieces of writing about
topics important to the software community. An essay can be an exploration
of a topic, its impact, or the circumstances of its creation; it can
present a personal view of what is, explore a terrain, or lead the reader
in an act of discovery; it can be a philosophical digression or a deep
analysis. It can describe a personal journey, perhaps by which the author
reached an understanding of such a topic. The subject area should be
interpreted broadly and can include the relationship of software to human
endeavors, or its philosophical, sociological, psychological, historical,
or anthropological underpinnings.

Submissions due: Fri 1 April, 2016

## Workshops

The SPLASH Workshops track will host a variety of high-quality workshops,
allowing their participants to meet and discuss research questions with
peers, to mature new and exciting ideas, and to build up communities and
start new collaborations. SPLASH workshops complement the main tracks of
the conference and provide meetings in a smaller and more specialized
setting. Workshops cultivate new ideas and concepts for the future,
optionally recorded in formal proceedings.

Late Phase Submissions of Workshop Proposals due: Fri 4 Mar, 2016

## Doctoral Symposium

The SPLASH Doctoral Symposium provides students with useful guidance for
completing their dissertation research and beginning their research
careers. The Symposium will provide an interactive forum for doctoral
students who have progressed far enough in their research to have a
structured proposal, but will not be defending their dissertation in the
next 12 months.

Submissions due: Thu 30 Jun, 2016

## Posters

The SPLASH Poster track provides an excellent forum for authors to present
their recent or ongoing projects in an interactive setting, and receive
feedback from the community. We invite submissions covering any aspect of
programming, systems, languages and applications. The goal of the poster
session is to encourage and facilitate small groups of individuals
interested in a technical area to gather and interact.

Poster submissions due: Fri 8 Jul, 2016

## Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS)

DLS is the premier forum for researchers and practitioners to share
knowledge and research on dynamic languages, their implementation, and
applications. The influence of dynamic languages — from Lisp to Smalltalk
to Python to Javascript — on real-world practice, and research, continues
to grow. We invite high quality papers reporting original research,
innovative contributions, or experience related to dynamic languages, their
implementation, and applications.

Submissions due: Fri 10 June, 2016

## Software Language Engineering (SLE)

Software Language Engineering (SLE) is the application of systematic,
disciplined, and measurable approaches to the development, use, deployment,
and maintenance of software languages. The term “software language” is used
broadly, and includes: general-purpose programming languages;
domain-specific languages (e.g. BPMN, Simulink, Modelica); modeling and
metamodeling languages (e.g. SysML and UML); data models and ontologies
(e.g. XML-based and OWL-based languages and vocabularies). SLE solicits
high-quality contributions in areas ranging from theoretical and conceptual
contributions to tools, techniques, and frameworks in the domain of
language engineering.

Submissions due: Fri 17 June, 2016 (abstracts); Fri 24 June, 2016 (papers)

## Generative Programming: Concepts & Experiences (GPCE)

The International Conference on Generative Programming: Concepts &
Experiences (GPCE) is a venue for researchers and practitioners interested
in techniques that use program generation, domain-specific languages, 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 software, our goal is to
foster further cross-fertilization between the software engineering and the
programming languages research communities.

Submissions due: Fri 17 June, 2016 (abstracts); Fri 24 June, 2016 (papers)
