Important Dates:

May 22nd, 2015 - Paper deadline

June 26th, 2015 - Author notification

July 19th, 2015 - Camera-ready deadline

September 4th, 2015 - Workshop

Submissions must be in ACM proceedings format, no smaller than 9-point type (10-point type preferred). Microsoft Word and LaTeX templates for this format are available at: http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm

Submissions should be in PDF and printable on US Letter.

To encourage authors to submit their best work, this year we are encouraging shorter papers (around 6 pages, excluding references). This is to allow authors to submit longer, revised versions of their papers to archival conferences or journals. Longer papers (10—12 pages) are also acceptable, if the extra space is needed. There is no maximum length limit on submissions, but good submissions will likely be in the range of 6 to 12 pages.
