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

SPLASH Wavefront Experience Reports are all about how we create practical software systems that solve real-world problems. Wavefront experience reports are meant to be strongly aligned with the focus of the Wavefront program, but in the experience papers, we are looking for discussions about the use of those technologies as opposed to their creation. How have they made you more (or less) successful? What do you do differently now? This is your chance to convince your peers that you have found a better way. Preference will be given to papers that report on production software in use by real customers or papers on industrial practices used in the development or maintenance of software products.

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

While the Wavefront program has its main focus on the use of forward looking technologies, we all know that experience is broader than that. Realistically, many of us are creating functional systems in other areas using today's tools. And we are doing so quite successfully. What have you learned that may help your peers avoid obstacles? What stories do you have to tell? We anticipate offering one or more sessions on more traditional software development and encourage you to share your experiences.

All accepted papers will be presented at the SPLASH conference, published in the SPLASH conference proceedings and will become permanent entries in the ACM Digital Library.

Selection Process

We seek submissions from practicing developers describing solutions and techniques they have put into use in real-world projects. This is your chance to communicate with your peers and help them overcome their own obstacles. In that spirit, the selection process has been designed to aid authors who have little or no experience in presenting at conferences while at the same time smoothing the path for those that have presented before.

This process starts with your submission. We will accept as an initial submission outlines, extended abstracts, or complete papers. Please include a primary contact with your submission including e-mail address, postal address, and telephone numbers. You can submit your materials at this URL: http://cyberchair.acm.org/wavefrontexperience/submit/. After a brief review we will get in contact to discuss your paper and answer any questions you may have to produce a complete version of your paper. Your paper will then be reviewed in detail by several committee members. Acceptance will be based on relevance, technical quality, and applicability of your work. If the committee consider necessary, the paper can be assigned to a shepherd that will help on the improvement of your submission. If accepted you will be notified by the date shown in the summary box. As a result we expect a final paper that is typically 5 to 10 pages in length and a presentation that is typically 20 minutes long.

Submission

Authors may choose to submit either a detailed outline, extended abstract or complete paper. All submissions are evaluated for conditional acceptance subject to successful participation in a shepherding process that produces a final paper. If necessary the program committee member can act as mentor to authors as they prepare their final paper. Authors who have not previously published conference papers are strongly encouraged to submit their work and join us in this process. Your submission is your chance to convince us of the relevance of your work. An extended abstract followed by the shepherding process is an excellent way for less experienced authors to get their works published and presented.
