Call For Papers
The 8th International Conference on Software Language Engineering (SLE) is devoted to the principles of software languages: their design, their implementation, and their evolution.

SLE 2015 will be held on October 26 & 27 2015, co-located with SPLASH, OOPSLA and GPCE 2015 in Pittsburgh, USA. SLE workshops will be held before the conference on the 25th of October.

SLE’s mission is to fuse several communities that have traditionally looked at software languages from different and yet complementary perspectives: programming languages, model driven engineering, domain specific languages, semantic web, and from different technological spaces: context-free grammars, object-oriented modeling frameworks, rich data, structured data, object-oriented programming, functional programming, logic programming, term-rewriting, attribute grammars, algebraic specification, etc.

Conference proceedings are expected to be published as part of the ACM Digital Library.

SLE: Call for Papers

Software Language Engineering (SLE) is the application of systematic, disciplined, and measurable approaches to the development, use, deployment, and maintenance of software languages. The term “software language” is used broadly, and includes: general-purpose programming languages; domain-specific languages (e.g. BPMN, Simulink, Modelica); modeling and metamodeling languages (e.g. SysML or Ecore); data models and ontologies (e.g. XML-based and OWL-based languages and vocabularies).

Topics of Interest

The overall principle of SLE is to be broad-minded and inclusive about relevance and scope. We solicit high-quality contributions in areas ranging from theoretical and conceptual contributions to tools, techniques, and frameworks. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

    Tools and methods for software language design and extension (including language workbenches, meta-tools)

    Techniques for analysing software language descriptions

    Techniques for software language reuse, evolution and managing variation (syntactic/semantic) within language families

    Integration and coordination of software languages and tools

    Engineering Domain-Specific Languages

    Novel applications and/or empirical studies on any aspect of SLE

    Cross-fertilization of different technological spaces

Types of Submissions

We solicit several different types of submissions, including:

    Research papers: These should report a substantial research contribution to SLE or successful application of SLE techniques or both. Full paper submissions must not exceed 10 pages in ACM SIGPLAN format.

    Tool papers: Because of SLE’s ample interest in tools, we seek papers that present software tools related to the field of SLE. Selection criteria include originality of the tool, its innovative aspects, and relevance to SLE. Tool papers should include an appendix outlining the proposed demonstration, including screenshots etc. A short video may be linked as well. Tool paper submissions must not exceed 5 pages in ACM SIGPLAN format.

    Industrial position papers: These papers discuss practical applications of SLE technology with an emphasis on the advantages and disadvantages of the method, techniques, or tools used. Industry paper submissions must not exceed 5 pages in ACM SIGPLAN format.

    Bridging position papers: These papers discuss bridging ideas from the different areas of SLE (e.g. modelling, PL, grammars, etc). This includes both foundational ideas and/or practical techniques. Bridging position papers must not exceed 2 pages in ACM SIGPLAN format.
