We invite students to participate in the Systems and Software Product Line
Conference (SPLC'18). Students are especially welcome to submit to the
doctoral symposium and the challenge track, and participate as student

Everyone is also highly encouraged to submit to the other tracks,
especially the research and the industry track. The deadlines are very
soon: March 16 (abstract) and March 23 (paper).


   SPLC'18 Doctoral Symposium


The SPLC'18 Doctoral Symposium is an international forum for PhD students
working in all areas of systems and software product lines. The forum is
intended to bring together PhD students and give them the opportunity to
present and discuss their research, to get constructive feedback, and to
meet fellow researchers at a similar stage of their career. The Doctoral
Symposium welcomes PhD students who have settled on a dissertation topic
and whose PhD dissertation will benefit from the feedback received. In most
likelihood, such students will be midway through their doctoral work.

The goals of the SPLC'18 Doctoral Symposium are:

* to give PhD students a chance to showcase their research,

* to provide them with feedback from a panel of senior international

* to facilitate interaction among the participants.

The doctoral symposium will operate in a highly interactive workshop-like
format. You can find details on the submission process on our website:


   SPLC'18 Challenge Track


This year, SPLC is introducing a challenge track. The idea of the challenge
track is to provide participants with a set of case studies that tackle
relevant SPL problems and challenge the state of the art. We have four
cases that participants can submit to. The challenge track is the perfect
chance to test the reliability of your tools or to introduce Master or
early PhD students to concrete research problems with clear evaluation

The following are the four cases in this year’s SPLC challenge track:

- Interoperability of Software Product Line Variants

- Feature Location Benchmark with ArgoUML SPL

- App-Games – A Case Study for Reverse Engineering Variability from

Cloned Java Variants

- Localizing Configurations in Highly-Configurable Systems

Submissions will be in the form of 4page papers (+1 page for references).
All accepted papers will appear in the conference’s official proceedings.

   SPLC’18 Student Volunteers


 SPLC 2018 is an excellent opportunity for students to meet and talk with
leading academic or industrial researchers and practitioners in the area of
systems and software product lines. Being a student volunteer is also an
excellent way of meeting other students from all over the world and to
offset some of the costs of the conference. Our student volunteers are
critical in ensuring that the conference runs smoothly, and SPLC would not
be possible without their enthusiastic contribution each year.
