<Programming> 2019 : The Art, Science, and Engineering of Programming

April 1-4, 2019, Genova, Italy



To build a community and to foster an environment where participants can 
exchange ideas and experiences related to practical software 
development, ‹Programming› will host a number of workshops, during the 
days before the main conference. The workshops will provide a 
collaborative forum to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to 
conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or to coordinate 
efforts between representatives of a technical community. They are 
intended as a forum for lively discussion of innovative ideas, recent 
progress, or practical experience on programming and applied software 
development in general for specific aspects, specific problems, or 
domain-specific needs. We also encourage practical, hands-on workshops 
in which participants actually experience one or several aspects of 
practical software development. 

The duration of workshops is in general one day, but we encourage the 
submission of half-day workshop proposals on focused topics as well. In 
exceptional situations, e.g., for workshops that involve actual practice 
of programming-related activities, workshop organizers can request a 2 
day workshop slot. If desired, the workshop proceedings can be published 
in the ACM Digital Library. 

### Submission Deadlines

  - First Deadline: July 1st, 2018
  - Second Deadline: September 1st, 2018

Notifications will go out as soon as possible, about a week after the deadlines.

### Notes on Proceedings

Workshops that wish to have their proceedings published in the ACM DL will have the opportunity to have either a pre or post proceedings. However, chairs will be responsible for collecting and verifying final copies, including PDFs and their source files, as well as paper metadata, in a format required by the publisher. The deadlines mentioned above are **strict** and we won't be able to extend them. Please consider them carefully when determining your deadlines for the workshop.
