SPLASH 2013
Sat 26 - Thu 31 October 2013 Indianapolis, United States

Wavefront is a forum for presenting and discussing new and innovative tools, technologies, and practices for use in today’s software community. Wavefront is about how industry applies the lessons learned from the software development community in deploying today’s software and systems, and how the community can learn from what is happening in the trenches of software engineering.

The ACM International Conference on Systems, Programming, Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity (SPLASH) is sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN.

SPLASH is the home of OOPSLA Research Papers, Onward!, and the Dynamic Languages Symposium, among other events.

Call for Papers

Wavefront papers describe original and innovative architecture, design, and/or implementation techniques used in leading-edge software systems. Papers from practicing software developers are strongly encouraged.

Wavefront papers can be on research or advanced development topics, they must address a problem of immediate concern in the world of software, and they must present immediately applicable results.

The Wavefront program is focused on the technologies that software developers are creating and deploying today. A Wavefront paper is a good way to show that your company or university is working on ground-breaking projects, technologies, and processes. Your wavefront paper may inspire others in the software community to take your technology to the next stage, to help make a better future for everyone.

Selection Process

Papers will be selected by a program committee composed of practicing software developers and implementation-focused researchers. The committee will evaluate papers based upon the following criteria:

  • Novelty: The paper presents new applications, system architectures, software designs, user interfaces, development tools, or implementation techniques.

  • Interest: The paper addresses a significant and immediate problem or opportunity. The results in the paper have potential for immediate impact on state-of-the art software development projects.

  • Evidence: The paper presents implemented designs, system case studies, or intriguing observations. Preference will be given to papers based upon deployed systems.

  • Clarity: The paper is clearly written and understandable by practicing software developers. However, shepherding will be available for papers that present good ideas but need help in their presentation.

Submission

Authors may choose to submit either an extended abstract or a final complete paper. Extended abstract submissions are evaluated for conditional acceptance subject to successful participation in a shepherding process that produces a final paper. Program committee members will advise authors of shepherded papers as they prepare their final paper and must approve the final paper. Authors who have not previously published conference papers are strongly encouraged to submit an extended abstract and use the shepherding process. An extended abstract is a 2-5 page summary of the core content that will appear in a complete paper. It must be complete enough for the program committee to evaluate the likely content of the final paper against the above selection criteria. An extended abstract must also include an abstract and author information which will be published in the Advance Program, should the paper be accepted.
