OOPSLA Research Program Call for Papers

Abstract Submission Deadline March 19, 2009 Full Papers Due March 23, 2009 Author response Period May 1-2, 2009 Notifications May 10, 2009


OOPSLA'09 solicits excellent research papers that present new research
and novel technical results, advance the state of the art, or report
on experience or experimentation. Papers should report significant
contributions to the exploration, study, use, and understanding of
programming, systems, languages, or applications.

OOPSLA is the premier forum for research on the intersection between
programming languages and software engineering, for introducing and
discussing key programming models and programming methods and related
software engineering ideas, technologies, tools, and
applications. Submissions are welcomed on critical evaluation of
accepted practices, proposals for new programming models, exploration
and extension of well-established models, and other novel approaches
to building systems. We also encourage submissions on this year's
OOPSLA themes: "scaling: multi-core to cloud", "mashups of models,
data and code", "tools for reliability and evolution", and "enterprise
agile management".

Papers may address any stage of programming, including requirements,
modeling, prototyping, design, implementation, testing, and any other
means of producing running software. We particularly welcome software
engineering papers that focus on processes and methods in
addition to languages, tools, and techniques. Of particular
interest are papers with perspectives that cut across the traditional
boundaries of languages, systems, and applications in the development
of software systems. Papers may also extend to programming models that
go beyond traditional programming models.

A successful research paper meets all of these criteria:

Significance: Motivate why the research is important or
useful. Explain what problem it addresses. Novelty: Extend the
frontier of knowledge. Explicitly relate your research to previous
work. Correctness: Critically evaluate and support your claims with
proofs, an implementation, examples, or experiments. Clarity:
Organize the paper well and write clearly. Make sure you support your


OOPSLA 2009 continues a long-standing tradition of recognizing the
best student-authored paper of the conference. The program chair will
select the winning paper among those commended by the program
committee. The paper will be announced in the conference's research
paper sessions. Eligible papers will describe the work of one or more
students, one of whom must be the primary author. Authors will
indicate eligibility as part of the submission process.

OOPSLA 2009 will also present an award for the most influential paper
published 10 years ago at OOPSLA 1999.

Submission Guidelines

Electronic submission of research papers is required through the
OOPSLA submission system.

Both submissions and final papers must be prepared using the ACM
SIGPLAN 10 point format. Templates for Word and LaTeX are available at; this site also
contains links to useful information on how to write effective

All papers must be submitted electronically as PDF format documents
(or PostScript, if you cannot access PDF-producing programs, but this
is not recommended). PDF files must be created to allow printing, and
must be able to be readily printed using a modestly configured color
laser printer. Note that MS Word documents must be converted to PDF
before being submitted.

Submissions must be no longer than 18 pages. Submissions that are
longer or that are not in the 10 point ACM format will be rejected
without review.

To hold reviewers' interest, authors should strive to make the length
of their paper match its content. Papers without many formulas,
figures, or tables should have a total length of about 16 pages or
less. Non-essential material can be separated into an appendix.

The reviews of the papers will be provided to the authors on May 1,
2009 and authors will have 48 hours (through May 2) to submit a
response for the purpose of clarification, correction, or answering
questions asked by the program committee. Responses will be limited to
500 words.

Each accepted paper will be afforded a 30 minute presentation at the
conference and allocated up to 20 pages in the proceedings. Accepted
papers must be formatted to conform to ACM Proceedings requirements,
which will be supplied after notification of acceptance.

OOPSLA provides a number of other publication venues. Please consider
submitting to Onward! if you have ideas that are compelling but too
new to have strong substantiation for their value and effectiveness,
or if you wish to reflect on existing technologies or practices with
an eye toward understanding how to approach software-related problems
or situations in the future. Onward! accepts both research-related
papers and essays. Papers rejected for the research program may, at
the discretion of the program committee, be forwarded to Onward! to be
considered as a research contribution or an essay, and vice versa.

However, OOPSLA welcomes and solicits research papers with big, novel
ideas, papers that tie together different concepts, and papers that
strongly argue a point of view if your ideas are well substantiated.

Submitted papers must describe work unpublished in refereed venues,
and not concurrently submitted for publication elsewhere (including
journals and formal proceedings of conferences and
workshops). Violation of this policy will result in rejection of the
paper. See the SIGPLAN republication policy for more details

For additional information, clarification, or questions please contact
the program committee chair, Gary T. Leavens, at
