SPLASH 2012
Fri 19 - Fri 26 October 2012 Tucson, Arizona, United States

The scope of OOPSLA includes all aspects of programming languages and software engineering, broadly construed.

Papers may address any aspect of software development, including requirements, modeling, prototyping, design, implementation, generation, analysis, verification, testing, evaluation, maintenance, reuse, replacement, and retirement of software systems. Papers on tools (such as new languages, program analyses, or runtime systems) or on techniques (such as new methodologies, design processes, code organization approaches, and management techniques) designed to reduce the time, effort, and/or cost of creating software systems or improving their performance, quality and/or usability are of particular interest.

Call for Papers

Selection Process

OOPSLA has a history of welcoming papers that take risks and explore new approaches to solving problems in software development. The program committee will assess such papers, as well as more traditional research contributions, by considering the following criteria:

Novelty: The paper presents new ideas and/or results and places these ideas and results appropriately within the context established by previous research in the field.

Interest: The results in the paper have the potential to add, in important or significant ways, to the state of the art or practice. The paper challenges or changes informed opinion about what is possible, true, or likely.

Evidence: The paper presents evidence supporting its claims. Examples of evidence include formalizations and proofs, implemented systems, experimental results, statistical analyses, case studies, and anecdotes.

Clarity: The paper presents its claims and results clearly.

Submission

SIGPLAN Proceedings Format, 10 point font. Note that by default the SIGPLAN Proceedings Format produces papers in 9 point font. If you are formatting your paper using LaTeX, you will need to set the 10pt option in the \documentclass command. If you are formatting your paper using Word, you may wish to use the provided Word template that provides support for this font size. Please include page numbers in your submission. Setting the preprint option in the LaTeX \documentclass command generates page numbers. Please also ensure that your submission is legible when printed on a black and white printer. In particular, please check that colors remain distinct and font sizes are legible.

The length of a submitted paper should not be a point of concern for authors. Authors should focus instead on addressing the criteria mentioned above, whether it takes 5 pages or 15 pages. It is, however, the responsibility of the authors to keep the reviewers interested and motivated to read the paper. Reviewers are under no obligation to read all or even a substantial portion of a paper if they do not find the initial part of the paper interesting. The committee will not accept a paper if it is not clear to the committee that the paper will fit in the OOPSLA 2012 proceedings, which will limit accepted papers to 20 pages. OOPSLA 2012 submissions must conform to both the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions and the SIGPLAN Republication Policy.
