Onward! is a premier multidisciplinary conference focused on everything
to do with programming and software: including processes, methods,
languages, communities, applications and education.

As always, Onward! is part of SPLASH, which this year will be in Chicago
on 15--20 November. It includes OOPSLA and other co-located events
(including this year SAS and GPCE).

Compared to other conferences, Onward! is more radical, more visionary,
and more open to ideas that are well-argued but not yet proven. It is
not looking for research-as-usual papers. To allow room for bigger,
bolder and/or less mature ideas, it accepts less exact methods of
validation, such as compelling arguments, exploratory implementations,
and substantial examples.

Onward! Papers solicits full-length technical submissions. (There is
also a parallel Essays track, whose Call will be circulated separately.)
Experienced researchers, graduate students, practitioners, and anyone
else dissatisfied with the state of our art is encouraged to share their
insights. Onward! welcomes your submissions, for the good of our field.

### Format and Selection

Submissions may be up to 13 pages (excluding bibliographic references
and appendices) in ACM SIGPLAN Conference acmart Format.

Onward! papers are peer-reviewed in a double blind manner. Accepted
papers will appear in the Onward! Proceedings in the ACM Digital
Library, and must be presented at the conference. Submissions will be
judged on the potential impact of the ideas and the quality of the

Onward! Papers follows a two-phase review process. This enables us to
welcome papers that contain promising ideas and have the potential to
meet the conference's standards, but which may fall short of this in the
initial submission.
