Authors of papers published in PACMPL(OOPSLA) will be invited to present 
their work at the SPLASH conference. In person attendance is not 
required, SPLASH will provide remote presentation options.

### Scope

The OOPSLA issue of the Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages 
(PACMPL) welcomes papers focusing on all practical and theoretical 
investigations of programming languages, systems and environments. 
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, techniques, principles, and evaluations.

### Review Process   [new this year]

PACMPL(OOPSLA) has two _rounds_ of reviewing. The final outcome of each 
round can be one of Accept, Revise or Reject.

*Accept*: Accepted papers will appear at the next PACMPL(OOPSLA).

*Revise*: Papers in this category are invited to submit a revision to 
the _next round_ of submissions with a specific set of expectations to 
be met.  When authors resubmit, they should clearly explain how the 
revisions address the comments of the reviewers. The revised paper will 
be re-evaluated, and either accepted or rejected.  Resubmitted papers 
will retain the same reviewers throughout the process.

*Reject*: Rejected papers will not be included at the next 
PACMPL(OOPSLA).  Papers in this category are not guaranteed a review if 
resubmitted less than one year from the date of original submission.  A 
paper will be judged to be a _resubmission_ if it is substantially 
similar to the original submission. The judgment that a paper is a 
resubmission of the same work is at the discretion of the Chairs.

Each _round_ of reviewing consists of two _phases_. The first phase 
evaluates the papers and results in an early notification of Reject, 
Revise, or Conditional Accept. During the first phase, authors will be 
able to read their reviews and respond to them. The second phase is 
restricted to conditionally accepted papers. Authors must make a set of 
mandatory revisions. The second phase assesses whether the required 
revisions have been addressed. The outcome can be Accept, Revise or 

### Submissions

Submitted papers must be at most **23 pages** in 10 point font. There is 
no page limit on references. No appendices are allowed on the main 
paper, instead authors can upload supplementary material with no page or 
content restrictions, but reviewers may choose to ignore it. Submissions 
must adhere to the "ACM Small" template available from [the 
ACM](http://www.acm.org/publications/authors/submissions). Papers are 
expected to use author-year citations. Author-year citations may be used 
as either a noun phrase, such as "The lambda calculus was originally 
conceived by Church (1932)", or a parenthetic phase, such as "The lambda 
calculus (Church 1932) was intended as a foundation for mathematics".

PACMPL uses double-blind reviewing. Authors' identities are only 
revealed if a paper is accepted. Papers must

1. omit author names and institutions,
2. use the third person when referencing your work,
3. anonymise supplementary material.

Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the 
submission; see the DBR FAQ. When in doubt, contact the Review Committee 

Papers must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted 
for publication elsewhere as described by [SIGPLAN's Republication 
Submitters should also be aware of [ACM's Policy and Procedures on 
Submissions are expected to comply with the [ACM Policies for 

### Artifacts

Authors should indicate with their initial submission if an artifact 
exists, describe its nature and limitations, and indicate if it will be 
submitted for evaluation. Accepted papers that fail to provide an 
artifact will be requested to explain the reason they cannot support 
replication. It is understood that some papers have no artifacts.

### Publication

PACMPL is a Gold Open Access journal, all papers will be freely 
available to the public. Authors can voluntarily cover the article 
processing charge ($400), but payment is not required. The official 
publication date is the date the journal are made available in the ACM 
Digital Library. The journal issue and associated papers may be 
published up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference.
