Call For Papers

The 31st European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming
19-23 June 2017, Barcelona, Spain
co-located with PLDI 2017 and other events #ECOOP2017 @ECOOPconf

ECOOP is a programming languages conference. Its primary focus has
been object-orientation, though in recent years, it has accepted
quality papers over a much broader range of programming topics. Areas
of interest include, but are not limited to, the theory, design,
implementation, optimization, and analysis of programs and programming
languages. It solicits both innovative and creative solutions to real
problems, and evaluations of existing solutions in ways that shed new
insights. It also encourages the submission of reproduction studies.


**** Abstract submission: 07 Jan 2017 *****
Paper submission: 13 Jan 2017
Author response start: 20 Mar 2017
Author response end: 22 Mar 2017
Acceptance notification: 12 Apr 2017
Artifact submission: 21 Apr 2017

All dates are "anywhere on earth".


ECOOP 2017 solicits high quality submissions describing original and
unpublished results. The program committee will evaluate the technical
contribution of each submission as well as its general relevance and
accessibility to the ECOOP audience according the following criteria:
- Originality. Papers must present new ideas and place them
appropriately within the context established by previous
research in the field.
- Significance. The results in the paper must have the potential to
add to the state of the art or practice in significant ways.
- Evidence. The paper must present evidence supporting its
claims. Examples of evidence include formalizations and proofs,
implemented systems, experimental results, statistical
analyses, and case studies.
- Clarity. The paper must present its contributions and results clearly.
- For Reproduction Studies: Empirical Evaluation. Common in other
sciences, reproduction means independently reconstructing an
experiment in a different context (e.g., virtual machine,
platform, class of applications) in order to validate or refute
important results of earlier work. A good reproduction study
will include thorough empirical evaluation. It will contain a
detailed comparison with the previous results, seeking reasons
for possible disagreements.


Only papers that have not been published and are not under review for
publication elsewhere can be submitted. Double submissions will be
rejected without review. If major parts of an ECOOP submission have
appeared elsewhere in any form, authors are required to notify the
ECOOP program chair and to explain the overlap and
relationship. Authors are also required to inform the program chair
about closely related work submitted to another conference while the
ECOOP submission is under review.

Papers must be no longer than 25 pages, excluding references. See
below for information about appendices. Authors will not be penalized
for papers that are shorter than the page limit.

The submission site is:

Papers must be written in English. ECOOP Proceedings are published by
Dagstuhl LIPIcs. Authors retain ownership of their content.


ECOOP will use light double-blind reviewing whereby authors'
identities are withheld until the reviewer submits their review (as
usual, reviews are always anonymous). To facilitate this, submitted
papers must adhere to two rules:
- author names and institutions must be omitted, and
- references to authors' own other work should be in the third person
(e.g., not We build on our previous work... but rather We build on the work of...).
A document answering frequently asked questions that hopefully
addresses many common concerns is available at the ECOOP 2017 web
site. When in doubt, contact the program chair.


Clearly marked additional appendices, not intended for the final
publication, containing supporting proofs, analyses, statistics, etc.,
may be included beyond the page limit. There is also an option on the
paper submission page to submit supplementary material, e.g., a
technical report including proofs, or web pages and repositories that
cannot easily be anonymized. This material will be made available to
reviewers after the initial reviews have been completed when author
names are revealed.

Reviewers are under no obligation to examine the appendices and
supplemental material. Therefore, the paper must be a stand-alone
document, with the appendices and supplemental material viewed only as
a way of providing useful information that cannot fit in the page
limit, rather than as a means to extend the page limit.

Authors of papers that have been submitted but not accepted by
previous prestigious conferences may additionally submit a Note to
Reviewers. The Note to Reviewers should a) identify the previous
venue(s) (e.g., ESOP 2017, POPL 2017, OOPSLA 2016); b) list the major
issues identified by the reviews at those venues; and c) describe the
changes made to the paper in response to those reviews. These notes
will be made available to reviewers after the initial review has been
completed and author names have been revealed.


Authors will be given a three-day period to read and respond to the
reviews of their papers before the program committee
meeting. Responses have no formal length limit, but concision will be
highly appreciated and is likely to be more effective.


To reward the creation of artifacts and support replication of
experiments, authors of accepted research papers can submit artifacts
(such as tools, data, models, or videos) to be evaluated by an
Artifact Evaluation Committee. Artifacts that pass muster will be
recognized formally, and the Artifact Evaluation Committee will give
an award for the most distinguished artifact.
