programming languages and software engineering. Authors of papers
published in PACMPL Issue OOPSLA 2019 will present their work at
OOPSLA in Athens.

Papers may target any stage of software development, including
requirements, modeling, prototyping, design, implementation,
generation, analysis, verification, testing, evaluation,
maintenance, and reuse of software systems. Contributions may
include the development of new tools (such as language
front-ends, program analyses, and runtime systems), new
techniques (such as methodologies, design processes, and code
organization approaches), new principles (such as formalisms,
proofs, models, and paradigms), and new evaluations (such as
experiments, corpora analyses, user studies, and surveys).

Submissions due: Fri 5 Apr, 2019

## Onward! 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: Mon 22 April, 2019
(transitioning to https://2019.splashcon.org/track/splash-2019-Onward-papers)

## Onward! Essays

Onward! Essays is looking for clear and compelling pieces of
writing about topics important to the software community. An
essay can be long or short.  An essay can be an exploration of
the topic and its impact, or a story about 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 the one the author took to reach an
understanding of the topic. The subject area—software,
programming, and programming languages—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: Mon 22 April, 2019

## Generative Programming: Concepts & Experiences (GPCE)

The International Conference on Generative Programming: Concepts
& Experience (GPCE) is a venue for researchers and practitioners
interested in techniques and tools for code generation, language
implementation, and metaprogramming.  GPCE seeks conceptual,
theoretical, empirical, and technical contributions to its topics
of interest, which include but are not limited to (i) program
transformation, staging, macro systems, preprocessors, program
synthesis, and code-recommendation systems, (ii) domain-specific
languages, language embedding, language design, and language
workbenches, (iii) feature-oriented programming, domain
engineering, and feature interactions, (iv) applications and
properties of code generation, language implementation, and
product-line development.

Abstracts due: Fri 14 Jun, 2019
Submissions due: Fri 21 Jun, 2019

## Software Language Engineering (SLE)

Software Language Engineering (SLE) is the discipline of
engineering languages and their tools required for the creation
of software. It abstracts from the differences between
programming languages, modelling languages, and other software
languages, and emphasizes the engineering facet of the creation
of such languages, that is, the establishment of the scientific
methods and practices that enable the best results. SLE 2019
solicits high quality contributions in areas ranging from
theoretical and conceptual contributions, to tools, techniques,
and frameworks in the domain of software language engineering.

Abstracts due: Fri 14 Jun, 2019
Submissions due: Fri 21 Jun, 2019

## Managed Programming Languages and Runtimes (MPLR)

The International Conference on Managed Programming Languages &
Runtimes (MPLR, formerly ManLang) is a premier forum for
presenting and discussing novel results in all aspects of managed
programming languages and runtime systems, which serve as
building blocks for some of the most important computing systems
around, ranging from small-scale (embedded and real-time systems)
to large-scale (cloud-computing and big-data platforms) and
anything in between (mobile, IoT, and wearable applications).

Submissions due: Mon July 8, 2019


SPLASH-E is a track focused on education-related challenges,
innovations, and best practices in all areas covered by the
SPLASH conference. We welcome a broad range of submissions
including those that report on experiences, research results,
innovative teaching approaches, and pedagogical reflection.

Submissions due: Fri July 12, 2019

## 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.

This year, the John Vlissides Award will be presented to a
symposium participant showing significant promise in applied
software research. All participants to the Doctoral Symposium are
eligible. The award includes a prize of $2,000.

Submissions due: Fri 12 Jul, 2019

## Student Research Competition

The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), sponsored by
Microsoft Research, offers a unique forum for ACM student members
at the undergraduate and graduate levels to present their
original research at SPLASH before a panel of judges and
conference attendees. The SRC gives visibility to not only
up-and-coming young researchers, but also exposes them to the
field of computer science research and its community. This
competition also gives students an opportunity to discuss their
research with experts in their field, get feedback, and to help
them sharpen their communication and networking skills.

Student Research Competition abstract due: Fri July 12, 2019

## Workshops

Following its long-standing tradition, SPLASH 2019 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.

The paper submission deadline for all workshops is
Aug 2, 2019 AoE.

The following workshops are co-located with SPLASH 2019.

## 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 at any desired level
of detail.  The poster session is held early in the conference to
promote continued discussion among interested parties.

Submissions due: Sat 7 Sep, 2019
