CALL FOR PAPERS
17th International Conference on
Generative Programming: Concepts & Experiences (GPCE 2018)
November 5-6, 2018
Boston, MA, USA
(co-located with SPLASH 2018)
* Submission of abstracts: June 29, 2018
* Submission of papers: July 6, 2018
* Paper notification: August 24, 2018
Submission site: https://gpce18.hotcrp.com/
* Saman Amarasinghe, MIT, https://people.csail.mit.edu/saman/
Saman Amaraasinghe and his group at MIT have developed several
domain-specific languages, including Halide, TACO, Simit, StreamIt,
StreamJIT, PetaBricks, MILK, Cimple, and GraphIt, that target diverse
areas such as image processing, stream computations, and graph
analytics. In each, the innovative language abstractions are
leveraged by sophisticated compilation techniques to generate
exceptionally high performance. Dr. Amarasinghe has also pioneered
the application of techniques from machine learning to compiler
optimizations in systems such as Meta and the OpenTuner extensible
GPCE is a venue for researchers and practitioners interested in techniques
and tools for code generation, language implementation, and metaprogramming.
GPCE seeks conceptual, theoretical, empirical, and technical contributions
to its topics of interest, which include but are not limited to:
* program transformation, staging, macro systems, preprocessors, program
synthesis, and code-recommendation systems,
* domain-specific languages, language embedding, language design, and
* feature-oriented programming, domain engineering, and feature
* applications and properties of code generation, language
implementation, and product-line development.
Authors are welcome to check with the PC chair whether their planned
papers are in scope.
The GPCE program committee will evaluate each submission according to the
following selection criteria:
* Novelty. Papers must present new ideas or evidence and place them
appropriately within the context established by previous research in
* Significance. The results in the paper must have the potential to add
to the state of the art or practice in significant ways.
* Evidence. The paper must present evidence supporting its claims.
Examples of evidence include formalizations and proofs, implemented
systems, experimental results, statistical analyses, and case studies.
* Clarity. The paper must present its contributions and results clearly.
GPCE solicits three kinds of submissions.
* Full Papers reporting original and unpublished results of research that
contribute to scientific knowledge in any GPCE topic listed above. Full
paper submissions must not exceed 12 pages excluding bibliography.
* Short Papers presenting unconventional ideas or visions about any GPCE
topic listed above. Short papers do not always require complete results
as in the case of a full paper. In this way, authors can introduce new
ideas to the community and get early feedback. Please note that short
papers are not intended to be position statements. Short papers are
included in the proceedings and will be presented at the conference.
Short paper submissions must not exceed 6 pages excluding bibliography.
* Tool Demonstrations presenting tools for any GPCE topic listed above.
Tools must be available for use and must not be purely commercial.
Submissions must provide a tool description not exceeding 6 pages
excluding bibliography and a separate demonstration outline including
screenshots also not exceeding 6 pages. Tool demonstrations must have
the keywords "Tool Demo" or "Tool Demonstration" in their title. If the
submission is accepted, the tool description will be published in the
proceedings. The demonstration outline will only be used by the program
committee for evaluating the submission.
All submissions must use the ACM SIGPLAN Conference Format "acmart",
using the "sigplan" sub-format, and 10 point font. Additional details
and links to templates and the LaTeX class file can be found on the
conference web site: http://2018.splashcon.org/track/gpce-2018.
To increase fairness in reviewing, a double-blind review process has
become standard across SIGPLAN conferences. GPCE will follow a very
lightweight model, where author identities are revealed to reviewers
after submitting their initial reviews. Hence, the purpose is not to
conceal author identities at all cost, but merely to provide reviewers
with an unbiased first look at a submission. Author names and
institutions should be omitted from submitted papers, and references
to the authors' own related work should be in the third person.
No other changes are necessary, and authors will not be penalized
if reviewers are able to infer their identities in implicit ways.
To understand the motivation for using a double-blind review process

C. Le Goues, Y. Brun, S. Apel, E. Berger, S. Khurshid, Y. Smaragdakis
Papers must be submitted using HotCRP: https://gpce18.hotcrp.com/
