Call For Papers

The Systems and Software Product Line Conference (SPLC) is a premier forum where researchers, practitioners, and educators can present and discuss the most recent ideas, trends, experiences, and challenges in the area of software and system product lines engineering.

SPLC 2016 will feature the following main tracks:

Research Track: High quality research work that uses established scientific methodologies, written using high standards of academic technical publications, i.e., original and unpublished results of in all areas related to software product line engineering.

Software Industry Track: Challenges, innovations and solutions to concrete industrial applications of software and product line engineering tools and methodologies. These papers should have a significant software component to the research (see the Systems Engineering track otherwise).

Systems Engineering Track: This track is for papers, either research-oriented or industry-oriented, that are explicitly aimed at product lines residing primarily in the systems engineering realm, i.e., where the focus is not software but rather other system engineering aspects (testing, operations, portfolio management, manufacturing, etc.) and/or concerns across the whole organization. Industry or research papers focusing on software product lines should be submitted to the traditional industry and research tracks.

Vision Track: Papers that reach out to new communities around product lines, explore unusual interdisciplinary research, synergies with other fields, or present disruptive innovations. These papers should not be traditional SPLC research papers in a shorter form.

Additionally, SPLC will feature (check for details):

Workshops and Tutorials: you can submit your proposals of workshops and tutorials related to systems and software product line topics.

Tools, Data, and Demonstrations: an opportunity for live demonstrations of product-line tools, of substantial datasets to be shared with the community, and of practices tackling current industrial challenges.

Doctoral Symposium: Doctoral proposals, both early- and mid-phase, to be reviewed and commented on by a panel of experts.

Submissions should follow the ACM proceedings format ( and will be reviewed by at least three members of the SPLC 2016 program committees. The SPLC proceedings will be published by ACM in the ACM Digital Library in its International Conference Proceedings Series.

We use EasyChair ( to handle submissions and reviews.

Please note that the 24th International Requirements Engineering Conference ( will be the week before SPLC, Sept 12-16, also in Beijing.
