OOPSLA 2020 : Conference on Object-Oriented Programming Systems, Languages,and Applications
Conference Series : Conference on Object-Oriented Programming Systems, Languages, and Applications
Call For Papers
Papers appear in an issue of the Proceedings of the ACM on Programming Languages (PACMPL). PACMPL is a Gold Open Access journal, all papers will be freely available to the public. Authors can voluntarily cover the article processing charge ($400), but payment is not required.
Paper Selection Criteria
We consider the following criteria when evaluating papers:
Novelty: The paper presents new ideas and results and places them appropriately within the context established by previous research.
Importance: The paper contributes to the advancement of knowledge in the field. We also welcome papers that diverge from the dominant trajectory of the field.
Evidence: The paper presents sufficient evidence supporting its claims, such as proofs, implemented systems, experimental results, statistical analyses, case studies, and anecdotes.
Clarity: The paper presents its contributions, methodology and results clearly.
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 three 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 …”), and
any supplementary material should be similarly anonymized
The purpose of this process is to help reviewers come to an initial judgement about the paper without bias, not to make it impossible for them to discover the authors if they were to try. Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult.
Submissions must conform to both the ACM Policies for Authorship and SIGPLAN’s Republication Policy. Authors will be required to sign a license or copyright release.
The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library, which may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference.
Authors of conditionally accepted papers are encouraged to submit supporting materials for Artifact Evaluation.
Authors should indicate with their initial submission if an artifact exists and describe its nature and limitations.
Further information will be available soon.
