Call for Demonstrations and Posters

*** MODULARITY '16 ***
15th International Conference on Modularity
March 14-17, 2016
Málaga, Spain

Important dates
Submission: January 11, 2016
Notification: February 1, 2016

Modularity’16 solicits high-quality proposals for its demonstration track.
Demonstrations may present work in progress systems, commercial or in-house
applications, proofs of concept, results of academic or industrial
research, or any other innovative software tools or systems.

The Demonstrations track is an excellent vehicle for sharing your latest
work with a knowledgeable and experienced audience. Demo session is a rare
opportunity to showcase your most recent work, explain its relevance, and
get feedback on the technical aspects of the running applications in a
highly interactive setting. Presenters receive a multi-faceted feedback
from the audience, while the audience learns about the relevant emerging
technologies and engages with its developers. This is also an opportunity
to increase the visibility and impact of your work.

Selection Process:
Demonstrations will be selected on the basis of technical merit, novelty,
relevance to the modularity and composition community, and feasibility of
presentation. The presentation has to focus on technical content and is to
be given by technical members of the development team.

Each accepted demo will be allocated 30 minutes. We recommend to use this
time for presentation (5-10 min.) of the research ideas on which the tools
are based; actual demonstration (15 min.); and allow at least 5-to-10
minutes for questions and discussion.

Authors of research and workshop papers are also welcome to submit an
accompanying demonstration.

Demonstration Topics:
The demonstration track welcomes any submission within the scope of the
topics of interest of the main conference, including (though are not
limited to):
 - applications of mechanisms to support modularity and composition
throughout the software development life-cycle;
 - new technologies for software modularization and composition;
 - linguistic mechanism to support modularity and composition;
 - modularity in domain specific languages design, implementation and
 - composable and reusable libraries of programming entities.

Demonstration Proposal Must Include:
 - Title
 - Name, email, address, and phone number of the intended presenters
 - Abstract (up to 200 words) for advertising the demonstration on the
conference web site
 - A description of the demonstration that highlights the problems
addressed, innovations (e.g., uniqueness of design and implementation),
impact, and relation of this work to other industrial or research efforts

The demo submission must not exceed 4 pages (in the ACM sigplanconf 10pt
format, similar to main conference submissions). If the demo is accepted,
this paper will be included in the conference companion proceedings.

Additionally, we strongly encourage submission of a short summative youtube
movie for the demo (3-5 min. long) with the link included into the demo
paper. If the movie is not submitted, 3-5 screenshots should be submitted
to accompany the submission (but not to be included into proceedings). The
screenshots are not part of the demo paper and are in addition to the
4-pages of the paper

Demonstrations should be submitted in pdf and must not exceed four pages
(excluding screenshots).

Any special requirements for the demonstration (e.g., non-standard
equipment, or a wired network connection, etc.) must also be communicated
at submission time.

Poster event provides an excellent forum for authors to present their
recent or ongoing work in an interactive setting, and receive feedback from
the community. The goal of the poster session is to encourage and
facilitate a one-to-one and small group discussions on a technical topic.
It is used to showcase the very new work, clarify problem statements, vet
solutions, identify evaluation methods and, (for students) to practice
presentation of own work to peers.

Poster Submission Guidelines:
A poster submission should include the following two files in PDF format:

A poster preview (ISO A1 Portrait printout)
A 2 pages extended abstract (in the ACM sigplanconf 10pt format),
 - the poster title;
 - names and affiliations of the authors (one of whom should be named as a
contact person);
 - motivation and the addressed problem, proposed solution, its’ the novel
contributions of the given proposal and the context of its related work.

Posters shall be evaluated both on their contributions and on how
effectively they communicate those contributions.

If accepted, this paper will be included in the conference companion

Poster author(s) are required to attend the scheduled poster session,
staying with their poster so that they can discuss their work with
conference attendees. Each poster will have an associated sign-up sheet
where poster authors will note their availability for additional one-to-one
discussions, which will allow interested viewers to obtain further
information. Additionally, each poster-board will have a message area, on
which viewers can post comments, ideas, and questions and on which poster
authors will be able to post responses.

How to submit:
Demonstration and posters are to be submitted electronically to EasyChair (
