25th ACM International Systems and Software Product Line Conference (SPLC 2021)

Consolidated Call for Contributions

Web site: http://splc2021.net/

Twitter: @splcconf


The Systems and Software Product Line Conference (SPLC) is a premier
forum where researchers, practitioners, and educators can present and
discuss the most recent ideas, trends, experiences, and challenges in
the area of software and system product lines engineering. Conference
events include opportunities to hear industry leaders' real-world
experiences and researchers' latest ideas and to learn from both.

The SPLC 2021 will be held online from September 6th to 11th. We are
closely monitoring the COVID19 situation and we are committed to
allowing for hybrid participation (both online and physical) if the
situation improves.




* Research Papers

High-quality research work that uses established scientific
methodologies, written using high standards of academic technical

* Industrial Systems and Software Product Lines Papers

We invite submission of papers presenting challenges, innovations, and
solutions to concrete industrial applications of software and product
line engineering methodologies and tools. Submitted papers should
showcase a significant software component to the research.

* Challenges and Solutions Papers

We highly encourage community members to provide concrete sets of case
studies and problems that showcase SPL-related challenges. First,
there will be a call for cases where researchers or practitioners are
encouraged to contribute a concrete case study. Then, after the
accepted case studies are published, there will be a call for
solutions. Both accepted case descriptions and solutions will be
included in the conference proceedings.

* Journal First Papers

Authors of journal-first papers are invited to submit their
publications to present their work at SPLC. This is an opportunity to
speak directly to the community and offer SPLC attendees a richer set
of presentations.

* Workshop Proposals

We invite the community to submit proposals for one or two- day
workshops in the field. In particular, workshops on challenging,
emerging areas related to conference topics.

* Demonstrations and Tools

This track highlights live demonstrations of product-line tools and of
practices tackling current industrial challenges.

* Doctoral Symposium Papers

The SPLC Doctoral Symposium aims to provide a supportive environment
that enables doctoral students to get constructive feedback on their
research. Students will have the opportunity to discuss their work
with experienced members of the community.

* Tutorial Proposals

Tutorials provide a valuable opportunity for participants to expand
their knowledge and skills in product line engineering. Tutorials may
focus on introductory product lines topics, or on advanced tools,
approaches, methods, and best practices.


SPLC will celebrate its silver jubilee at SPLC 2021!


At SPLC 2021, we will celebrate SPLC's silver jubilee in a dedicated
session. Distinguished speakers will shed their light on the history
of SPLC and software product lines - in research and in industry. We
also plan to show a collection of photos/videos/stories by SPLC
participants, for which we seek your help.

Please send any material you believe suitable to SPLC's publicity
chair at splc.jubilee.25th at gmail.com. The fact that SPLC 2021 is the
25th edition of SPLC less than 25 years after the first SPLC surely is
one such a remarkable story: https://splc.net/history/
