**************** Call for Participation ******************
The conference for new ideas, new paradigms, and reflections
on everything to do with programming and software.
Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN in cooperation with SIGSOFT
Co-located with SPLASH 2010 -http://splashcon.org
Reno-Tahoe, Nevada - USA
October 17 – 21, 2010
Onward! is more radical, more visionary and more open than other
conferences to not so well-proven but well-argued ideas. It fosters
different ways of thinking about, approaching, and reporting on
programming language and software engineering research.
Join Onward!, the unique, creative and collaborative environment to
discuss and investigate challenging problems related to software, its
creation and nurturing.
** REGISTRATION AND ACCOMMODATION **
Registration for Onward! 2010 is handled in conjunction with
registration for SPLASH/OOPSLA 2010 at:
Onward! 2010 takes place October 17-21 at John Ascuaga's Nugget

night. More information about local arrangements from SPLASH website.
** PROGRAM **
The program of Onward! 2010 will include, in addition to the panel
and a workshop, the following tracks:
- 17 (full and short) research papers describing exciting ideas
with potential to change significantly the field.
- 5 essays presenting thoughtful reflections upon software-related
- 3 films that convey interesting stories or ideas "in motion".
The list of accepted contributions is available at:
** PANEL **
"Software for a Sustainable World"
Last year at Onward we heard a panel discuss “Why is Software not
yet Green?”. This year, the Onward Green Panel will focus on Systems
that support sustainability – e.g. Systems that help us reduce
energy consumption, or manages energy output, or gives us better
data on consumption. We will explore how Smart Grids can impact
us, how we can make saving energy easier and less intrusive, and
other tools for large enterprise business or the home consumer.
Perhaps, “software is not yet green”, but we can create software
to produce a more sustainable future.
** PLATEAU WORKSHOP **
"Evaluation and Usability of Programming Languages and Tools" (Plateau)
Programming languages exist to enable programmers to develop software
effectively. But how efficiently programmers can write software depends
on the usability of the languages and tools that they develop with.
The aim of this workshop is to discuss methods, metrics and techniques
for evaluating the usability of languages and language tools. We plan
to gather the intersection of researchers in the programming language,
programming tool, and human-computer interaction communities to share
their research and discuss the future of evaluation and usability of
programming languages and tools.
