CALL FOR PAPERS
16th International Conference on
Generative Programming: Concepts & Experiences (GPCE 2017)
October 23-24, 2017
(co-located with SPLASH 2017)
* Submission of abstracts: June 25, 2017
* Submission of papers: July 2, 2017
* Paper notification: August 17, 2017
Submission site: https://gpce17.hotcrp.com/
GPCE is a programming languages conference focusing on techniques and
tools for code generation, language implementation, and product-line
development. GPCE seeks conceptual, theoretical, empirical, and technical
contributions to its topics of interest, which include but are not
* program transformation, staging, macro systems, preprocessors, program
synthesis, and code-recommendation systems,
* domain-specific languages, language embedding, language design, and
* feature-oriented programming, domain engineering, and feature
* applications and properties of code generation, language
implementation, and product-line development.
Authors are welcome to check with the PC chair whether their planned
papers are in scope.
The GPCE program committee will evaluate each submission according to the
following selection citeria:
* Novelty. Papers must present new ideas or evidence and place them
appropriately within the context established by previous research in
* 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.
GPCE solicits three kinds of submissions. All submissions must use the
ACM SIGPLAN Conference Format and 10 point font.
* Full Papers reporting original and unpublished results of research that
contribute to scientific knowledge in any GPCE topic listed above. Full
paper submissions must not exceed 12 pages excluding bibliography.
* Short Papers presenting unconventional ideas or visions about any GPCE
topic listed above. Short papers do not always require complete results
as in the case of a full paper. In this way, authors can introduce new
ideas to the community and get early feedback. Please note that short
papers are not intended to be position statements. Short papers are
included in the proceedings and will be presented at the conference.
Short paper submissions must not exceed 6 pages excluding bibliography.
* Tool Demonstrations presenting tools for any GPCE topic listed above.
Tools must be available for use and must not be purely commercial.
Submissions must provide a tool description not exceeding 6 pages
excluding bibliography and a separate demonstration outline including
screenshots also not exceeding 6 pages. Tool demonstrations must have
the keywords “Tool Demo” or “Tool Demonstration” in their title. If the
submission is accepted, the tool description will be published in the
proceedings. The demonstration outline will only be used by the program
committee for evaluating the submission.
For additional information, clarification, or answers to questions
please contact the program chair.
