Onward! 2018

Co-located with SPLASH 2018
November 4 - 9, 2018, Boston, USA

Onward! is a premier multidisciplinary conference focused on
everything to do with programming and software: including
processes, methods, languages, communities and applications.
Onward! is more radical, more visionary and more open than
other conferences to ideas that are well-argued but not yet proven.
We welcome different ways of thinking about, approaching and
reporting on programming language and software engineering research.

Onward! has two tracks that accept submissions: Papers and Essays.

### Call for Onward! Essays

Onward! Essays is looking for clear and compelling pieces of writing about
topics important to the software community. An essay can be long or short.
Anessay can be an exploration of the topic and its impact, or a story about
the circumstances of its creation; it can present a personal view of what
is, explore a terrain, or lead the reader in an act of discovery; it can be
aphilosophical digression or a deep analysis. It can describe a personal
journey, perhaps the one the author took to reach an understanding of the
topic. The subject area—software, programming, and programming languages
—should be interpreted broadly and can include the relationship of
software to human endeavors, or its philosophical, sociological,
psychological, historical, or anthropological underpinnings.

### Call for Onward! Papers

Onward! Papers is looking for grand visions and new paradigms that could
make a big difference in how we will one day build software. But it is not
looking for research-as-usual papers—conferences like OOPSLA are the
place for that. Those conferences require rigorous validation such as
theorems or empirical experiments, which are necessary for scientific
progress, but which typically preclude discussion of early-stage ideas.
Onward! papers must also supply some degree of validation because mere
speculation is not a good basis for progress. However, Onward! accepts
less rigorous methods of validation such as compelling arguments,
exploratory implementations, and substantial examples. The use of
worked-out examples to support new ideas is strongly encouraged.
