Call For Papers

The landscape of computation platforms has changed dramatically in recent years. Emerging systems - such as wearable devices, smartphones, unmanned aerial vehicles, Internet of things, cloud computing servers, heterogeneous clusters, and data centers - pose a distinct set of system-oriented challenges ranging from data throughput, energy efficiency, security, real-time guarantees, to high performance. In the meantime, code quality, such as modularity or extensibility, remains a cornerstone in modern software engineering, bringing in crucial benefits such as modular reasoning, program understanding, and collaborative software development. Current methodologies and software development technologies should be revised in order to produce software to meet system-oriented goals, while preserving high internal code quality. The role of the Software Engineer is essential, having to be aware of the implications that each design, architecture and implementation decision has on the application-system ecosystem.
This workshop is driven by one fundamental question: How does internal code quality interact with system-oriented goals? We welcome both positive and negative responses to this question. An example of the former would be modular reasoning systems specifically designed to promote system-oriented goals, whereas an example of the latter would be anti-patterns against system-oriented goals during software development.

== Submission Guidelines ==

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Submissions are accepted in the categories:

* Regular papers must not exceed 6 pages in length (including all references and appendixes)
* Short papers must not exceed 2 pages in length
* Posters (please submit an extended abstract of at most 1 page)

== List of Topics ==

* Energy-aware software engineering (e.g. energy efficiency models, energy efficiency as a quality attribute)
* Modularity support (e.g., programming language design, development tools or verification) for applications in resource-constrained or real-time systems
* Emerging platforms (e.g., Internet of Things and wearable devices)
* Security support (e.g., compositional information flow, compositional program analysis)
* Software architecture for reusability and adaptability in systems and their interactions with applications
* Empirical studies (patterns and anti-patterns) on the relationship between internal code quality and system-oriented goals
* Software engineering techniques to balance the trade-off between internal code quality and efficiency
* Memory bloats and long-tail performance problems across modular boundaries
* Program optimization across modular boundaries
* Internal code quality in systems software
* Reasoning across applications, compilers, and virtual machines

== Publication ==

Submissions should use the ACM SIGPLAN Conference acmart Format with ‘sigplan’ Subformat, 10 point font, using the font family Times New Roman. All submissions should be in PDF format. If you use LaTeX or Word, please use the provided ACM SIGPLAN acmart Templates provided here. Otherwise, follow the author instructions.
If you are formatting your paper using LaTeX, you will need to set the 10pt option in the \documentclass command. If you are formatting your paper using Word, you may wish to use the provided Word template that supports this font size. Please include page numbers in your submission with the LaTeX \settopmatter{printfolios=true} command. Please also ensure that your submission is legible when printed on a black and white printer. In particular, please check that colors remain distinct and font sizes are legible.

== Venue ==

The PASS workshop is associated with the (Programming)'18 conference in Nice, France.
