# List of Events

** OOPSLA Research Papers **
Papers that address various aspects of software development will be 
presented, including requirements, modelling, prototyping, design, 
implementation, generation, analysis, verification, testing, evaluation, 
maintenance, reuse, replacement, and retirement of software systems. 
These topics may be covered in a variety of ways, including new tools 
(such as languages, program analyses, and runtime systems), new 
techniques (such as methodologies, design processes, code organization 
approaches, and management techniques), and new evaluations (such as 
formalisms and proofs, corpora analyses, user studies, and surveys).

** Onward! Essays **
Onward! Essays targets topics important to the software community 
construed broadly. An essay can be an exploration of a topic, its 
impact, or 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 a philosophical digression or a deep analysis. It 
can describe a personal journey, perhaps that by which the author 
reached an understanding of such a topic. The subject area is 
interpreted broadly and can include the relationship of software to 
human endeavours, or its philosophical, sociological, psychological, 
historical, or anthropological underpinnings.

** Onward! Papers **
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. It welcomes different ways of thinking 
about, approaching, and reporting on programming language and software 
engineering research.

** PLMW **
The Programming Languages Mentoring Workshop encourages graduate 
students (PhD and MSc) and senior undergraduate students to pursue 
research in programming languages. This workshop will provide mentoring 
sessions on how to prepare for and thrive in graduate school and in a 
research career, focusing both on cutting-edge research topics and 
practical advice. The workshop brings together leading researchers and 
junior students in an inclusive environment in order to help welcome 
newcomers to our field of programming languages research. The workshop 
will show students the many paths that they might take to enter and 
contribute to our research community.

** SPLASH-E **

SPLASH-E is a symposium for software and languages (SE/PL) researchers 
with activities and interests around computing education. Some build 
pedagogically-oriented languages or tools; some think about pedagogic 
challenges around SE/PL courses; some bring computing to non-CS 
communities; some pursue human studies and educational research. At 
SPLASH-E, we share our educational ideas and challenges centered in 
software/languages, as well as our best ideas for advancing such work.

** Posters **

The SPLASH Posters track provides an excellent forum for authors to 
present their recent or ongoing projects in an interactive setting, and 
receive feedback from the community. It covers various aspects of 
programming, systems, languages and applications. The goal of the poster 
session is to encourage and facilitate small groups of individuals 
interested in a technical area to gather and interact.

** Doctoral Symposium **

The Doctoral Symposium provides students with useful guidance for 
completing their dissertation research and beginning their research 
careers. The symposium provides an interactive forum for doctoral 
students who have progressed far enough in their research to have a 
structured proposal, but will not be defending their dissertation in the 
next 12 months.

** Student Research Competition **

The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC) offers a unique opportunity 
for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research to a 
panel of judges and conference attendees at SPLASH. The SRC provides 
visibility and exposes up-and-coming researchers to computer science 
research and the research community. This competition also gives 
students an opportunity to discuss their research with experts in their 
field, get feedback, and sharpen their communication and networking 

# Workshops

** FTSCS: Formal Techniques for Safety-Critical Systems **

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and engineers 
who are interested in the application of formal and semi-formal methods 
to improve the quality of safety-critical computer systems. FTSCS 
strives to promote research and development of formal methods and tools 
for industrial applications, and is particularly interested in 
industrial applications of formal methods. The workshop will provide a 
platform for discussions and the exchange of innovative ideas, so 
submissions on work in progress are encouraged.

** HATRA: Human Aspects of Types and Reasoning Assistants **

This workshop brings together programming languages, software 
engineering, security, and human-computer interaction researchers to 
investigate methods for making languages that provide stronger safety 
properties more effective for programmers and software engineers. HATRA 
promotes both existing works relevant to the workshop’s topic, as well 
as new ideas, approaches, or hypotheses presented as an opportunity for 
the authors to receive community feedback and for the community to seek 
inspiration from others.

** LIVE: Live Programming **

Programming is cognitively demanding, and too difficult. LIVE is a 
workshop exploring new user interfaces that improve the immediacy, 
usability, and learnability of programming. Whereas PL research 
traditionally focuses on programs, LIVE focuses more on the activity of 
programming. The goal is to provide a supportive venue where early-stage 
work receives constructive criticism. Whether graduate students or 
tenured faculty, researchers need a forum to discuss new ideas and get 
helpful feedback from their peers. Towards that end, we will allot about 
ten minutes for discussion after every presentation.

** PAINT: Programming Abstractions and Interactive Tools, Notations, and 
Environments **

In this workshop, we want to discuss programming environments that 
support users in working with and creating domain-specific abstractions 
and notations. Topics of interest include the composition and 
integration of domain-specific abstractions and tools inside 
general-purpose programming languages and environments, the 
implementation and evaluation of editing ergonomics and UX concerns, or 
tool support for creating domain-specific abstractions and tools. 
Environments that typically exhibit such properties include meta tools 
or tool creation frameworks, language workbenches, block-based editors 
and other visual programming approaches or projectional editors.

** REBLS: Reactive and Event-Based Languages and Systems **

This workshop will gather researchers in reactive and event-based 
languages and systems. The goal of the workshop is to exchange new 
technical research results and to better define the field by coming up 
with taxonomies and overviews of the existing work.

** Unsound: Sources of Unsoundness in Verification **

Participants to Unsound will be able to share their experience and 
exploits on how different verification tools can either be broken or 
expose confusing behavior, likely to be unexpected by users. We are 
particularly interested in sources of unsoundness that are accidentally 
shared by many different unrelated research lines, and to develop an 
understanding on why this is the case. The workshop is meant to be 
welcoming for both people with strong theoretical skills, as well as 
people who just like hacking things. We do not expect fully polished 
submissions and we will not have formal proceedings.

** VMIL: Virtual Machines and Language Implementations **

The concept of Virtual Machines is pervasive in the design and 
implementation of programming systems. Virtual Machines and the 
languages they implement are crucial in the specification, 
implementation and/or user-facing deployment of most programming 
technologies. The VMIL workshop is a forum for researchers and 
cutting-edge practitioners working on language virtual machines to 
discuss the various related engineering and research issues.

# Co-hosted events

**  APLAS: Asian Symposium on Programming Languages and Systems **

APLAS aims to stimulate programming language research by providing a 
forum for the presentation of the latest results and the exchange of 
ideas in programming languages and systems. APLAS is based in Asia but 
is an international forum that serves the worldwide programming 
languages community.

** DSL: Dynamic Languages Symposium **

DLS is the premier forum for researchers and practitioners to share 
knowledge and research on dynamic languages, their implementation, and 
applications. The influence of dynamic languages — from Lisp to 
Smalltalk to Python to JavaScript — on real-world practice and research, 
continues to grow. We invite high-quality papers reporting original 
research, innovative contributions, or experience related to dynamic 
languages, their implementation, and applications.

** GPCE: International Conference on Generative Programming: Concepts & 
Experiences **

GPCE is a venue for researchers and practitioners interested in 
techniques that use program generation, domain-specific languages, and 
component deployment to increase programmer productivity, improve 
software quality, and shorten the time-to-market of software products. 
In addition to exploring cutting-edge techniques of generative software, 
our goal is to foster further cross-fertilization between software 
engineering and the programming languages research communities.

** SAS: Static Analysis Symposium **

Static analysis is widely recognized as a fundamental tool for program 
verification, bug detection, compiler optimization, program 
understanding, and software maintenance. The series of Static Analysis 
Symposia has served as the primary venue for the presentation of 
theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area.

** SLE: International ACM SIGPLAN Conference on Software Language 
Engineering **

SLE is the discipline of engineering languages and the tools required 
for the creation of software. It abstracts from the differences between 
programming languages, modelling languages, and other software 
languages, and emphasizes the engineering facet of the creation of such 
languages, that is, the establishment of the scientific methods and 
practices that enable the best results. SLE overlaps with traditional 
conferences on the design and implementation of programming languages, 
model-driven engineering, and compiler construction, and emphasizes the 
fusion of their communities.
