Call For Papers

Tenth International Conference on
Generative Programming and Component Engineering
(GPCE 2011)
October 22-23, 2011
Portland, Oregon, USA
(collocated with SPLASH 2011)
LinkedIn: GPCE (



* Submission of abstracts: Saturday, May 21, 2011 (Extended)
* Submission of papers: Saturday, May 28, 2011 (Extended)
* Paper notification: Wednesday, July 6, 2011
* Submission of tech talks: Sunday, August 7, 2011


Generative and component approaches are revolutionizing software
development just as automation and componentization revolutionized
manufacturing. Key technologies for automating program development are
Generative Programming for program synthesis, Component Engineering
for modularity, and Domain-Specific Languages (DSLs) for compact
problem-oriented programming notations.

The International Conference on Generative Programming and Component
Engineering is a venue for researchers and practitioners interested in
techniques that use program generation and component deployment to
increase programmer productivity, improve software quality, and
shorten the time-to-market of software products. In addition to
exploring cutting-edge techniques of generative and component-based
software, our goal is to foster further cross-fertilization between
the software engineering and the programming languages research


Research papers:

10 pages in SIGPLAN proceedings style (sigplanconf.cls, see reporting original and
unpublished results of theoretical, empirical, conceptual, or
experimental research that contribute to scientific knowledge in the
areas listed below (the PC chair can advise on appropriateness).

Tool demonstrations:

Tool demonstrations should present tools that implement
generative and component-based software engineering techniques, and
are available for use. Any of the GPCE'11 topics of interest are
appropriate areas for tool demonstrations. Purely commercial tool
demonstrations will not be accepted. Submissions should contain a tool
description of up to 6 pages in SIGPLAN proceedings style (sigplanconf.cls)
and a demonstration outline of up to 2 pages text plus 2 pages screen
shots. The six page description will, if the demonstration is accepted,
be published in the proceedings. The 2+2 page demonstration outline
will only be used by the PC for evaluating the submission.

Workshops and tech talks:

Workshops are organized by SPLASH - see the SPLASH website for details
( Tech talks are organized by GPCE as one or
two talks at the end of each day of the conference. The talks will be
about an hour in length and, similarly to tutorials, do not (need to)
present original new research material. Unlike longer tutorials,
these talks cannot be very interactive, and should instead aim to be
'keynote' style presentations. Please see the tech talks call for
contributions at for details.


GPCE seeks contributions in software engineering and in programming
languages related (but not limited) to:

* Generative programming
o Reuse, meta-programming, partial evaluation, multi-stage and
multi-level languages, step-wise refinement, generic programming,
automated code generation
o Semantics, type systems, symbolic computation, linking and
explicit substitution, in-lining and macros, templates,
program transformation
o Runtime code generation, compilation, active libraries,
synthesis from specifications, development methods,
generation of non-code artifacts, formal methods, reflection

* Generative techniques for
o Product-line architectures
o Distributed, real-time and embedded systems
o Model-driven development and architecture
o Resource bounded/safety critical systems.

* Component-based software engineering
o Reuse, distributed platforms and middleware, distributed
systems, evolution, patterns, development methods,
deployment and configuration techniques, formal methods

* Integration of generative and component-based approaches

* Domain engineering and domain analysis
o Domain-specific languages including visual and UML-based DSLs

* Separation of concerns
o Aspect-oriented and feature-oriented programming,
o Intentional programming and multi-dimensional separation of

* Applications of the above in industrial scenarios or to real-world
problems, bridging the gap between theory and practice

* Empirical studies
o Original work in any of the areas above where there is a
substantial empirical dimension to the work being
presented. Such contributions might take the form of a case/field
study, comparative analysis, controlled experiment, survey or
meta-analysis of previous studies.

Incremental improvements over previously published work should have
been evaluated through systematic, comparative, empirical, or
experimental evaluation. Submissions must adhere to SIGPLAN's
republication policy
( Please contact the
program chair if you have any questions about how this policy applies
to your paper (
