PACMPL (OOPSLA) seeks contributions on all aspects of programming languages and software engineering. Authors of papers published in PACMPL will present their work at OOPSLA in Boston.
Papers may target any stage of software development, including requirements, modeling, prototyping, design, implementation, generation, analysis, verification, testing, evaluation, maintenance, and reuse of software systems. Contributions may include the development of new tools (such as language front-ends, program analyses, and runtime systems), new techniques (such as methodologies, design processes, and code organization approaches), new principles (such as formalisms, proofs, models, and paradigms), and new evaluations (such as experiments, corpora analyses, user studies, and surveys).
A two-stage process with lightweight double-blind reviewing is used to select papers. This FAQ address common concerns.
The first reviewing stage assess papers using the above criteria. At the end of that stage a set of papers is conditionally accepted.
Authors of conditionally accepted papers must make a set of mandatory revisions. The second reviewing phase assesses whether the revisions have been addressed. The expectation is that the revisions can be addressed and that conditionally accepted papers will be accepted in the second phase.
The second submission must be accompanied by a cover letter mapping each mandatory revision request to specific parts of the paper.
For double-blind reviewing papers must adhere to two rules:
- author names and institutions must be omitted, and
- references to authors’ own related work should be in the third person (e.g., not “We build on our previous work …” but rather “We build on the work of …”).
