The ACM SIGPLAN conference on Systems, Programming, Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity (SPLASH) embraces all aspects of software construction and delivery to make it the premier conference at the intersection of programming, languages, and software engineering. SPLASH is now accepting submissions. We invite high-quality submissions describing original and unpublished work.

** OOPSLA Research Papers **

Papers that address any aspect of software development are welcome, including requirements, modelling, prototyping, design, implementation, generation, analysis, verification, testing, evaluation, maintenance, reuse, replacement, and retirement of software systems. Papers may address these topics in a variety of ways, including new tools (such as languages, program analyses, and runtime systems), new techniques (such as methodologies, design processes, code organization approaches, and management techniques), and new evaluations (such as formalisms and proofs, corpora analyses, user studies, and surveys).

Submissions Due: 16 April 2021 

** Onward! Research Papers **

Onward! is a premier multidisciplinary conference focused on everything to do with programming and software: including processes, methods, languages, communities, and applications. Onward! is more radical, more visionary, and more open than other conferences to ideas that are well-argued but not yet proven. We welcome different ways of thinking about, approaching, and reporting on programming language and software engineering research.

Submissions Due: 8 May 2021 

** Onward! Essays **

Onward! Essays conference is looking for clear and compelling pieces of writing about topics important to the software community construed broadly. An essay can be an exploration of a topic, its impact, or the circumstances of its creation; it can present a personal view of what is, explore a terrain, or lead the reader in an act of discovery; it can be a philosophical digression or a deep analysis. It can describe a personal journey, perhaps that by which the author reached an understanding of such a topic. The subject area should be interpreted broadly and can include the relationship of software to human endeavours, or its philosophical, sociological, psychological, historical, or anthropological underpinnings.

Submissions Due: 22 May 2021 

** Workshops **

The SPLASH Workshops track will host a variety of high-quality workshops, allowing their participants to meet and discuss research questions with peers, to mature new and exciting ideas, and to build up communities and start new collaborations. SPLASH workshops complement the main tracks of the conference and provide meetings in a smaller and more specialized setting. Workshops cultivate new ideas and concepts for the future, optionally recorded in formal proceedings.

Early Phase Submissions Due: 19 March 2021 

** SPLASH Posters ** 

The SPLASH Posters track provides an excellent forum for authors to

present their recent or ongoing projects in an interactive setting, and

receive feedback from the community. We invite submissions covering any

aspect of programming, systems, languages and applications. The goal of

the poster session is to encourage and facilitate small groups of

individuals interested in a technical area to gather and interact. It is

held early in the conference, to promote continued discussion among

interested parties.

Submissions due: 15 August 2021 

** Student Research Competition ** 

The ACM Student Research Competition (SRC), sponsored by Microsoft Research, offers a unique opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students to present their research to a panel of judges and conference attendees at SPLASH. The SRC provides visibility and exposes up-and-coming researchers to computer science research and the research community. This competition also gives students an opportunity to discuss their research with experts in their field, get feedback, and sharpen their communication and networking skills.

To participate in the competition, a student must submit a 2-page description of his or her original research project. The submitted project descriptions are peer-reviewed. Each student whose description is selected by a panel of reviewers is invited to attend the SRC competition at SPLASH and present their work. Winners of the SPLASH competition are invited to participate in the ACM Student Research Competition Grand Finals. Submit your work and take part in the ACM Student Research Competition at SPLASH 2021!

Submissions Due: 16 July 2021

** SPLASH-E **

SPLASH-E is a forum for educators to make connections between programming languages research and the ways we educate computer science students. We invite work that could improve or inform computer science educators, especially work that connects with introductory computer science courses, programming languages, compilers, software engineering, and other SPLASH-related topics. Educational tools, experience reports, and new curricula are all welcome.

Submissions Due: 16 July 2021


                   *** Co-Located Events ***


**  Asian Symposium on Programming Languages and Systems (APLAS) ** 

The 19th Asian Symposium on Programming Languages and Systems (APLAS). APLAS aims to stimulate programming language research by providing a forum for the presentation of the latest results and the exchange of ideas in programming languages and systems. APLAS is based in Asia but is an international forum that serves the worldwide programming languages community. APLAS 2021 will be held online and co-located with SPLASH 2021.

Submissions Due: 16 June 2021 

** Dynamic Languages Symposium (DLS) **

DLS is the premier forum for researchers and practitioners to share knowledge and research on dynamic languages, their implementation, and applications. The influence of dynamic languages — from Lisp to Smalltalk to Python to JavaScript — on real-world practice and research, continues to grow. We invite high-quality papers reporting original research, innovative contributions, or experience related to dynamic languages, their implementation, and applications.

Submissions Due: 2 June 2021 

** 20th International Conference on Generative Programming: Concepts & Experiences (GPCE) ** 

GPCE is a venue for researchers and practitioners interested in techniques that use program generation, domain-specific languages, and component deployment to increase programmer productivity, improve software quality, and shorten the time-to-market of software products. In addition to exploring cutting-edge techniques of generative software, our goal is to foster further cross-fertilization between software engineering and the programming languages research communities.

Submissions Due: 5th July 2021 

** The 28th Static Analysis Symposium (SAS 2021) **

Static analysis is widely recognized as a fundamental tool for program verification, bug detection, compiler optimization, program understanding, and software maintenance. The series of Static Analysis Symposia has served as the primary venue for the presentation of theoretical, practical, and application advances in the area.

Submissions Due: 25th April 2021

** 13th International ACM SIGPLAN Conference on Software Language Engineering (SLE) ** 

SLE is the discipline of engineering languages and the tools required for the creation of software. It abstracts from the differences between programming languages, modelling languages, and other software languages, and emphasizes the engineering facet of the creation of such languages, that is, the establishment of the scientific methods and practices that enable the best results. SLE overlaps with traditional conferences on the design and implementation of programming languages, model-driven engineering, and compiler construction, and emphasizes the fusion of their communities. 

Submissions Due: 21 June 2021
