SPLC 2020: 24th ACM International Systems and Software Product Line Conference

October 19 to 23, 2020
Montréal, Canada

Follow SPLC on Twitter: @splcconf

The Systems and Software Product Line Conference (SPLC) is a premier forum where researchers, practitioners, and educators can present and discuss the most recent ideas, trends, experiences, and challenges in the area of software and system product lines engineering. Conference events include opportunities to hear industry leaders’ real-world experiences and researchers’ latest ideas and to learn from both.

The 24th ACM International Systems and Software Product Line Conference (SPLC 2020) will be held from October 19th to 23rd co-located with the IEEE / ACM 23rd International Conference on Model Driven Engineering Languages and Systems (MODELS).


* Research Papers
High quality research work that uses established scientific methodologies, written using high standards of academic technical publications.

* Industrial Systems and Software Product Lines Papers
We invite submission of papers presenting challenges, innovations and solutions to concrete industrial applications of software and product line engineering methodologies and tools. Submitted papers should showcase a significant software component to the research.

* Challenges and Solutions Papers
We highly encourage community members to provide concrete sets of case studies and problems that showcase SPL-related challenges. First, there will be a call for cases where researchers or practitioners are encouraged to contribute a concrete case study. Then, after the accepted case studies are published, there will be a call for solutions. Both accepted case descriptions and solutions will be included in the conference proceedings.

* Journal First Papers
Authors of journal-first papers are invited to submit their publications to present their work at SPLC. This is an opportunity to speak directly to the community and offer SPLC attendees a richer set of presentations.

* Workshop Proposals
We invite the community to submit proposals for one or two- day workshops in the field. In particular, workshops on challenging, emerging areas related to conference topics.

* Demonstrations and Tools
This track highlights live demonstrations of product-line tools and of practices tackling current industrial challenges.

* Doctoral Symposium Papers
The SPLC Doctoral Symposium aims to provide a supportive environment that enables doctoral students to get constructive feedback on their research. Students will have the opportunity to discuss their work with experienced members of the community.

* Tutorial Proposals
Tutorials provide a valuable opportunity for participants to expand their knowledge and skills in product line engineering. Tutorials may focus on introductory product lines topics, or on advanced tools, approaches, methods, and best practices.
