7th Workshop on Reactive and Event-based Languages and Systems (REBLS 2020)
co-located with the SPLASH Conference
Chicago, Illinois, USA Sun

Author Notification: 24 Aug 2020
Final Submission Deadline: 25 Sep 2020


Reactive programming and event-based programming are two closely related
programming styles that are becoming more important with the ever
increasing requirement for applications to run on the web or on mobile devices,
and the advent of advanced High-Performance Computing (HPC) technology.

A number of publications on middleware and language design -- so-called
reactive and event-based languages and systems (REBLS) -- have already seen the
light, but the field still raises several questions. For example, the
interaction with mainstream language concepts is poorly understood,
implementation technology is still lacking, and modularity mechanisms remain
largely unexplored. Moreover, large applications are still to be developed,
and, consequently, patterns and tools for developing large reactive
applications are still in their infancy.

This workshop will gather researchers in reactive and event-based languages and
systems. The goal of the workshop is to exchange new technical research results
and to better define the field by developing taxonomies and discussing
overviews of the existing work.

We welcome all submissions on reactive programming, functional reactive
programming, and event- and aspect- oriented systems, including but not limited

* Language design, implementation, runtime systems, program analysis,
software metrics, patterns and benchmarks.

* Formal models for reactive and event-based programming.

* Study of the paradigm: interaction of reactive and event-based
programming with existing language features such as object-oriented
programming, pure functional programming, mutable state, concurrency.

* Modularity and abstraction mechanisms in large systems.

* Advanced event systems, event quantification, event composition,
aspect-oriented programming for reactive applications.

* Functional Reactive Programming (FRP), self-adjusting computation and
incremental computing.

* Synchronous languages, modeling real-time systems, safety-critical
reactive and embedded systems.

* Applications, case studies that show the efficacy of reactive

* Empirical studies that motivate further research in the field.

* Patterns and best-practices.

* Related fields, such as complex event processing, reactive data
structures, view maintenance, constraint-based languages, and their
integration with reactive programming.

* Implementation technology, language runtimes, virtual machine support,

* IDEs, Tools.

The format of the workshop is that of a mini-conference. Participants can
present their work in slots of 30 mins with Q&A included. Because of the
declarative nature of reactive programs, it is often hard to understand
their semantics just by looking at the code. We therefore also encourage
authors to use their slots for presenting their work based on live demos.


REBLS encourages submissions of two types of papers:

* Full papers: papers that describe complete research results. These papers
will be published in the ACM digital library.

* In-progress papers: papers that have the potential of triggering an
interesting discussion at the workshop or present new ideas that require
further systematic investigation. These papers will not be published in
the ACM digital library.


* Submissions should use the ACM SIGPLAN Conference acmart Format with the
two-column, sigplan Subformat, 10 point font, using Biolinum as sans-serif
font and Libertine as serif font. All submissions should be in PDF format. If
you use LaTeX or Word, please use the ACM SIGPLAN acmart Templates.

The page contains
instructions for authors, and a package that includes an example file

* Authors are required to explicitly specify the type of paper in the
submission (i.e., full paper, in-progress paper).

* Full papers can be *up to* 12 pages in length, excluding references.
In-progress papers can be *up to* 6 pages, excluding references.
Papers do not need to make use of all pages, but they will be summarily
rejected if they exceed the page limits.

Instructions for the Authors:

* Papers should be submitted through:

* For fairness reasons, all submitted papers should conform to the formatting
instructions. Submissions that violate these instructions will be summarily

* Program Committee members are allowed to submit papers, but their papers will
be held to a higher standard.

* Papers must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted for
publication elsewhere as described by SIGPLAN’s Republication Policy
Submitters should also be aware of ACM’s Policy and Procedures on Plagiarism.

* All submissions are expected to comply with the ACM Policies for Authorship
