Hello!  Please share this information with any who are interested.  Note:
the dates for the conference itself, while roughly accurate, have not yet
been finalized.

Thank you!

GPCE 2021:
20th International Conference on Generative Programming: Concepts &

October 17th-22nd, 2021 (co-located with SPLASH)
Chicago, Illinois, United States (hybrid)



The ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Generative Programming:
Concepts & Experiences is a programming languages conference focusing on
techniques and tools for code generation, language implementation, and
product-line development. GPCE seeks conceptual, theoretical, empirical,
and technical contributions to its topics of interest, which include but
are not limited to:

- program transformation, staging, macro systems, preprocessors, program
synthesis, and code-recommendation systems,
- domain-specific languages, language embedding, language design, and
language workbenches,
- feature-oriented programming, domain engineering, and feature
- applications and properties of code generation, language implementation,
and product-line development.

Authors are welcome to check with the PC chair whether their planned papers
are in scope.


GPCE solicits three kinds of submissions:

- **Full Papers** reporting original and unpublished results of research
that contribute to scientific knowledge in any GPCE topic listed above.
Full paper submissions must not exceed 12 pages excluding bibliography.

- **Short Papers** presenting unconventional ideas or visions about any
GPCE topic listed above. Short papers do not always require complete
results as in the case of a full paper. In this way, authors can introduce
new ideas to the community and get early feedback. Please note that short
papers are not intended to be position statements. Short papers are
included in the proceedings and will be presented at the conference. Short
paper submissions must not exceed 6 pages excluding bibliography. Short
papers must have the text “(Short Paper)” appended to their title, though
any papers of 6 or fewer pages that are not tool demonstration papers will
be considered as short papers.

- **Tool Demonstrations** presenting tools for any GPCE topic listed above.
Tools must be available for use and must not be purely commercial.
Submissions must provide a tool description not exceeding 6 pages excluding
bibliography and a separate demonstration outline including screenshots
also not exceeding 6 pages. Tool demonstrations must have the keywords
“Tool Demo” or “Tool Demonstration” in their title. If the submission is
accepted, the tool description will be published in the proceedings. The
demonstration outline will only be used by the program committee for
evaluating the submission.


The GPCE program committee will evaluate each submission according to the
following selection criteria:

- Novelty. Papers must present new ideas or evidence and place them
appropriately within the context established by previous research in the
- Significance. The results in the paper must have the potential to add to
the state of the art or practice in significant ways.
- Evidence. The paper must present evidence supporting its claims. Examples
of evidence include formalizations and proofs, implemented systems,
experimental results, statistical analyses, and case studies.
- Clarity. The paper must present its contributions and results clearly.


- Abstract submission:
July 5th, 2021 (Monday), AoE
- Paper submission:
July 9th, 2021 (Friday), AoE
- Review notification:
September 1st (Wednesday), AoE
- Author response period:
September 1st (Wednesday) till September 3rd (Friday), AoE
- Final notification:
September 13th (Monday)
- Camera-ready submission:
September 27th (Monday)


All submissions must use the ACM SIGPLAN Conference Format “acmart”. Please
be sure to use the latest LaTeX templates and class files. the SIGPLAN
sub-format, and 10 point font. Consult the sample-sigplan.tex template and
use the document-class \documentclass[sigplan,anonymous,review]{acmart}.

To increase fairness in reviewing, a double-blind review process has become
standard across SIGPLAN conferences. Author names and institutions should
be omitted from submitted papers, and references to the authors’ own
related work should be in the third person. No other changes are necessary,
and authors will not be penalised if reviewers are able to infer their
identities in implicit ways.

Papers must be submitted using HotCRP: https://gpce2021.hotcrp.com/

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made
available in the ACM Digital Library. Papers must describe work not
currently submitted for publication elsewhere as described by the SIGPLAN
