Call For Papers

3rd International Workshop on Reactive and Event-Based Languages &

Held at SPLASH Conference
Amsterdam, Netherlands - November 1st, 2016

===== Introduction =====

Reactive programming and event-based programming are two closely

related programming styles that are becoming ever more important with

the advent of advanced HPC technology and the ever increasing

requirement for our applications to run on the web or on collaborating

mobile devices. 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

in its infancy and modularity mechanisms are almost totally

lacking. Moreover, large applications are still to be developed and

patterns and tools for developing reactive applications is an area

that is vastly unexplored.

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 define better the field by coming up

with taxonomies and overviews of the existing work.

===== Contributions =====

Even though reactive programming and event-based programming are

receiving ever more attention, the field is far from mature. This

workshop will join forces and try to gather researchers working on the

foundational models, languages and implementation technologies. We

welcome all submissions on reactive programming, aspect- and

event-oriented systems, including but not limited to:

- Language design, implementation, runtime systems, program analysis,

software metrics, patterns and benchmarks.

- Study of the paradigm: interaction of reactive and event-based

programming with existing language features such as object-oriented

programming, mutable state, concurrency.

- Advanced event systems, event quantification, event composition,

aspect-oriented programming for reactive applications.

- Functional-reactive programming, self-adjusting computation and

incremental computing.

- 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. IDEs, Tools.

- Implementation technology, language runtimes, virtual machine support,


- Modularity and abstraction mechanisms in large systems.

- Formal models for reactive and event-based programming.

The format of the workshop is that of a mini-conference. Participants

can present their work in slots of 30mins 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.

===== Submissions =====

REBLS encourages submissions of two types of papers:

- Research results: complete works that ill 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.

Info about the format and the page limits can be found on the REBLS'16

website (
