[aspectj-announce] MODULARITY: aosd.2012 - First CFP on the Modularity Visions Track

MODULARITY: aosd.2012
*** AOSD 2012 ***

March 25-30, 2012
Hasso-Plattner-Institut Potsdam, Germany

Modularity Visions Track – Call for Papers

Modularity properties are key determinants of quality in information
systems, software, and system production processes. Modularity influences
system diversity, dependability, performance, evolution, the structure and
the dynamics of the organizations that produce systems, human understanding
and management of systems, and ultimately system value.
Yet the nature of and possibilities for modularity, limits to modularity,
the mechanisms needed to achieve it in given forms, and its costs and
benefits remain poorly understood. Significant advances in modularity thus
are possible and promise to yield breakthroughs in our ability to conceive,
design, develop, validate, integrate, deploy, operate and evolve modern
information systems and their underlying software artifacts.
The Modularity Visions track of AOSD 2012 (MV) seeks papers presenting
compelling insights into modularity in information systems, including its
nature, forms, mechanisms, consequences, limits, costs and benefits. Rather
than ex post results, MV seeks promising ex ante proposals for future work.
The scope of MV is broad: open to submissions from all areas of computer
science, as well as from other fields.

Reviewing Process
Reviewing will be based on norms applied to peer-reviewed proposals to
programs that demand breakthrough potential. Papers must be well written,
present new perspectives on, or approaches to, important problems, formulate
clear hypotheses justified by analysis or results from preliminary work,
evaluate potential significance and risks, articulate how progress can be
evaluated, and discuss related and required future work.

MV will use a two-phase review process. Each paper will first be reviewed by
at least two members of the program committee (PC). Any paper receiving at
least one positive review will be reviewed by at least one more PC member.
The PC will then recommend acceptance, rejection, or an invitation to revise
and resubmit. Authors of revised papers should explain how they responded to
earlier reviews. MV may include invited papers.

Important Dates
All deadlines are at 23:59:59 Apia, Samoa time.
•	Paper submission: September 23, 2011
•	Notification: October 28, 2011
•	Invited revisions: November 25, 2011
•	Notification for revised submissions: December 16, 2011
•	Camera-ready copy to publisher: January 9, 2012

Instructions for Authors
Work submitted to the AOSD Modularity Visions track must not be under review
for publication in any other venue and must not already have been published.
Submission will be carried out electronically via CyberChair
( The AOSD 2012
Research Results and MV tracks use separate CyberChair URLs. Papers must be
submitted as PDF files not to exceed 12 pages (including bibliography,
appendices and figures) using the SIGPLAN Proceedings Format and a 10 point
font. By default the SIGPLAN Proceedings Format uses a 9 point font. 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 use the provided Word template, which uses a 10pt font. Include page
numbers in submissions. Setting the preprint option in the \documentclass
command generates page numbers. Ensure that your submission is legible
printed when in black and white. Different colors must map to distinct gray
values and all writing must be readable.
Submission deadlines, length limits, and formatting instructions are firm.
Submissions that deviate materially will be rejected without review by the
program chair. Submitted papers must adhere to SIGPLAN's republication

Accepted papers will be published by the ACM in the AOSD 2012 Proceedings
and in the ACM Digital Library. Authors of accepted papers are expected to
revise papers in light of reviewers' comments, agree to provide camera-ready
versions by camera-ready deadlines, and agree to sign the standard ACM
copyright form.
