The Meta’16 workshop aims to bring together researchers working on metaprogramming and reflection, as well as users building applications, language extensions such as contracts, or software tools. With the changing hardware and software landscape, and increased heterogeneity of systems, metaprogramming becomes an important research topic to handle the associate complexity once more. Contributions to the workshop are welcome on a wide range of topics related to design, implementation, and application of metaprogramming techniques, as well as empirical studies on and typing for such systems and languages.
### Important Dates
27 Jul 2016 - Abstract Submission
1 Aug 2016 - Paper Submission
5 Sep 2016 - Notification
2 Sep 2016 - Demo, position or work-in-progress paper submission
23 Sep 2016 - Demo, position or work-in-progress paper notification
30 Oct 2016 Workshop
### Topics of Interest
The workshop is a venue for all approaches that embrace metaprogramming:
- from static to dynamic techniques
- reflection, meta-level architectures, staging, open language runtimes applications to middleware, frameworks, and DSLs
- optimization techniques to minimize runtime overhead
- contract systems, or typing of reflective programs reflection and metaobject protocols to enable tooling
- case studies and evaluation of such techniques, e.g., to build applications, language extensions, or tools
- empirical evaluation of metaprogramming solutions
- security in reflective systems and capability-based designs
- meta-level architectures and reflective middleware for modern runtime platforms (e.g. IoT, cyber-physical systems, mobile/cloud/grid computing, etc)
- surveys, conceptualization, and taxonomization of existing approaches
### Types of Submissions and Workshop format
We welcome both technical papers and work-in-progress and position papers from the academic as well as industrial perspective. Position paper should present new ideas and emerging problems and take a perhaps controversial stance on a specific topic and argue the position well. Furthermore, we plan interactive brainstorming and demonstration sessions between the formal presentations to enable an active exchange of ideas.
The workshop papers will be put on the workshop website, if not requested otherwise by the authors, but they are not part of formal proceedings. Papers are to be submitted using the ACM sigplanconf style at 10pt font size. See http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/.
- demos and posters: 1-page abstract
- position and work-in-progress paper: 1-4 pages
- technical paper: up to 8 pages
Demos, posters, position and work-in-progress papers can be submitted on a second, later deadline to discuss the latest results and current work.
