3rd Workshop on Meta-Programming Techniques and Reflection (Meta’18)

Co-located with SPLASH 2018
November 6, 2018, Boston, USA
Follow us on twitter @MetaAtSPLASH

The Meta’18 workshop aims to bring together researchers working on
metaprogramming and reflection, as well as users building
applications, language extensions, or software tools using them.
The changing hardware and software landscape, and the increased
heterogeneity of systems make metaprogramming once more an important
research topic to handle the associate complexity.

The challenges which metaprogramming faces are manifold. They start
with typing of reflective programs, continue with performance and
tooling, and reach into the empirical field to understand how
metaprogramming is used and how it affects software maintainability.
While industry accepted metaprogramming on a wide scale with Ruby,
Scala, JavaScript and others, academia still needs to bring it to
the same level of convenience, tooling, and understanding as for
direct programming styles.

Contributions to the workshop are welcome on a wide range of topics
related to the design, implementation, and application of
metaprogramming techniques, as well as empirical studies on typing
models for such systems and languages.

### Topics of Interest

The workshop is a venue for all approaches that embrace
metaprogramming, from static to dynamic techniques:

- reflection, meta-level architectures, staging,
open language runtimes applications to middleware,
frameworks, and DSLs
- optimization techniques
- contract systems, or typing of reflective programs
- reflection and metaobject protocols to enable tooling
- case studies and evaluation of such techniques, e.g.,
to build applications, language extensions, or tools
- empirical evaluation of metaprogramming solutions
- security in reflective systems and capability-based designs
- meta-level architectures and reflective middleware for
modern runtime platforms (e.g. IoT, cyber-physical systems,
mobile/cloud/grid computing, etc)
- surveys, conceptualization, and taxonomization of existing approaches

In short, we invite contributions to the workshop on a wide range of
topics related to design, implementation, and application of
reflective APIs and meta-programming techniques, as well as
empirical studies and typing for such systems and languages.

### Workshop Format and Submissions

This workshop welcomes the presentation of new ideas and emerging
problems as well as mature work as part of a mini-conference format.
Furthermore, we plan interactive brainstorming and demonstration
sessions between the formal presentations to enable an active
exchange of ideas.

Papers submitted by the first deadline will be considered for
publication in the ACM DL, if not requested otherwise by the authors.
Thus, they will be part of SPLASH workshop proceedings.
For all papers, use of the SIGPLAN acmart style is mandatory:
Please use the provided double-column templates for Latex or Word.

technical paper: max. 8 pages, excluding references

position and work-in-progress paper: 1-4 pages, excluding references

technology demos or a posters: 1-page abstract

Demos, posters, position and work-in-progress papers can be submitted
on a second, later deadline to discuss the latest results and current
work, but will not be considered for publication in the ACM DL.

For the submission, please use the submission system at:

### Important Dates
