 ACM Student Research Competition / <Programming> 2018 Posters
   Submissions: Mon 22 Jan 2018


The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), sponsored by Microsoft Research, offers a unique forum for ACM student members at the undergraduate and graduate levels to present their original research before a panel of judges and conference attendees. The SRC gives visibility to up-and-coming young researchers, and offers them an opportunity to discuss their research with experts in their field, get feedback, and to help sharpen communication and networking skills.

ACM’s SRC program covers expenses up to $500 for all students invited to an SRC. Please see our website for requirements and further details.

 Bx 2018 - 7th International Workshop on Bidirectional Transformations

   Paper submissions: Fri 19 Jan 2018
   Notifications: Sat 17 Feb 2018


Bidirectional transformations (bx) are a mechanism for maintaining the consistency of at least two related sources of information. Such sources can be relational databases, software models and code, or any other document following standard or ad-hoc formats. Bx are an emerging topic in a wide range of research areas, with prominent presence at top conferences in several different fields (namely databases, programming languages, software engineering, and graph transformation), but with results in one field often getting limited exposure in the others. Bx 2018 is a dedicated venue for bx in all relevant fields, and is part of a workshop series that was created in order to promote cross-disciplinary research and awareness in the area. As such, since its beginning in 2012, the workshop has rotated between venues in different fields.

 CoCoDo 2018 – Raincode Labs Compiler Coding Dojo

    No submission deadlines!


If you ever studied any computing discipline, you must have learnt
something about compilers as well, and you probably think you forgot
everything about it since. Yet, almost every time you develop a
non-trivial piece of software, you end up converting data between
formats, traversing hierarchical structures, analysing and
representing dependences and doing many other things that are at the
heart of compiler design and implementation. Whether you are applying
a Visitor design pattern or emulating a state machine with a
switch/case statement, you are programming a little part of a compiler
for your own language.

Participating in CoCoDo will give you a chance to immerse in the
marvels of compiler technologies for one day — and if you like it, you
are welcome to stay in this field! Our coding dojo will be split into
sessions, each dedicated to one aspect of compilation, with brief
explanations and supervision by leading field experts. There will be
several technologies, mainstream and otherwise, laid out at your
disposal. Better yet, you can bring your own workbench and show us how
it’s done.

 LASSY 2018 - 3rd Workshop on Live Adaptation of Software SYstems

   Paper submissions: Fri 12 Jan 2018
   Notifications: Fri 12 Feb 2018


The LASSY workshop provides a space for discussion and collaboration between researchers working on the problem of enabling live adaptations to software systems, across the development stack. The workshop encourages theoretical work on programming models and techniques to adapt software systems at the programming language, database, or user interface levels; application and practice to adaptive systems to a particular domain; and empirical studies on the impact and assessment of adaptive systems from a societal point of view.

 MOMO 2018 - 3rd Workshop on Modularity in Modelling

   Abstract submissions (optional): Fri 2 Feb 2018
   Paper submissions: Thu 8 Feb 2018
   Notifications: Thu 1 Mar 2018


Despite the power of abstraction of modelling, models of real-world problems and systems quickly grow to such an extent that managing the complexity by using proper modularization techniques becomes necessary. The Third International Modularity in Modelling Workshop (MoMo’18) will bring together researchers and practitioners interested in the theoretical and practical challenges resulting from applying modularity, advanced separation of concerns, and composition at the modelling level. It is intended to provide a forum for presenting new ideas and discussing the impact of the use of modularization in the context of (MDE) at different levels of abstraction.

MoMo’18 will bring together researchers and practitioners interested in exploring modularization techniques for modelling, such as but not limited to aspect-oriented mechanisms to support advanced separation of concerns, advanced composition operators for possibly heterogeneous models, and techniques for execution and reasoning over global properties of modularized models.

 MoreVMs 2018 - 2nd Workshop on Modern Language Runtimes, Ecosystems, and VMs

   Submissions: Fri 26 Jan 2018
   Notifications: Fri 23 Feb 2018


The MoreVMs'18 workshop aims to bring together industrial and academic programmers to discuss the design, implementation, and usage of modern languages and runtimes. This includes aspects such as reuse of language runtimes, modular implementation, language design and compilation strategies.

The workshop aims to enable a diverse discussion on how languages and runtimes are currently being utilized, and where they need to improve further. We welcome presentation proposals in the form of extended abstracts discussing experiences, work-in-progress, as well as future visions, from either an academic or industrial perspective.

 PASS 2018 - Workshop on Programming Across the System Stack

   Submissions: Mon 5 Feb 2018
   Notifications: Mon 26 Feb 2018
   Poster Submissions: Tue 6 Mar 2018


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.

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.

 Programming for the Large 2018 Workshop

   Abstract submissions: Fri 26 Jan 2018
   Submissions (full papers):  Fri 2 Feb 2018
   Position paper and work-in-progress paper submission: Tue 13 Feb 2018
   Notifications:  Fri 23 Feb 2018


In the last decade we have witnessed a new kid on the block in the programming (language) community: programming “large computers”. Such computers include many-core machines, clusters of raspberry-pies, industry-scale cluster machines, cloud infrastructure, CUDA and MPI-based supercomputers etc. This workshop seeks to gather researchers that contribute to the simplification of the software stack that will be used to program such machinery in the near future. The main focus of the workshop is "Programming for the Large". Nonetheless, this workshop aims to bring together researchers from many disciplines: distributed programming, big data processing, distributed database engineering, etc. This workshop welcomes any contribution that advances the state-of-the-art in the design, implementation and engineering of runtime systems for cluster architectures.

 ProWeb 2018 - 2nd International Workshop on Programming Technology for the Future Web

   Submissions:  Mon 15 Jan 2018
   Notifications: Mon 12 Feb 2018


Web applications have become ubiquitous on desktop and mobile devices alike. Whereas “responsive” web applications already offered a desktop-like experience, there is an increasing demand for “rich” web applications (RIAs) that offer collaborative and even off-line functionality.

ProWeb18, the 2nd International Workshop on Programming Technology for the Future Web, is a forum for researchers and practitioners to share and discuss new technology for programming these and future evolutions of the web. We welcome submissions introducing programming technology (i.e., frameworks, libraries, programming languages, program analyses and development tools) for implementing web applications and for maintaining their quality over time, as well as experience reports about the use of state-of-the-art programming technology.
Relevant topics include, but are not limited to: program analysis and testing for the web; design and implementation of languages for the web; distributed technology for data sharing, replication and consistency; and security technology for the web.

 PX/18 - 3rd Workshop on Programming Experience
   Submissions: Sat 3 Feb 2018
   Notifications: Mon 26 Feb 2018

PX is a workshop that explores the act of programming, in particular what programmers and programming teams do to create software. Do they type in source text and compile; do they modify running programs; what kinds of tools are available for error detection, correction, and prevention; what collaboration tools are available; what language features make some things easier (or harder); what constitutes programming; etc? The workshop is run as a writers’ workshop.

 Salon des Refusés 2018
   Submissions: Thu 1 Feb 2018
   Notifications: Sat 17 Feb 2018

Salon des Refusés ("exhibition of rejects") was an 1863 exhibition of artworks rejected from the official Paris Salon. It displayed works by later famous modernists such as Édouard Manet, whose paintings were rejected by the conservative jury of the Paris Salon. A similar space is needed to explore new ways of doing computer science.
Many interesting ideas about programming struggle to find space in the modern programming language research community, often because they are difficult to evaluate. To provide space for unorthodox thought provoking ideas, we take inspiration from literary criticism. Papers that spark an interesting debate among the program committee are presented together with an attributed critique that discusses the merits of the work.
