Call For Submissions

What’s “Fall School”?

The scope of the Fall School Tutorials is the same as the conference itself: all aspects of software construction and delivery at the intersection of programming, languages, and software engineering. The Fall School Tutorials in particular focus on the nexus between research and practice, including work that takes inspiration from or builds connections to areas not commonly considered at SPLASH. Fall School Tutorials should introduce researchers to current research in an area, or show important new tools that can be used in research.

Each tutorial will last 90 minutes, will be free to all attendees, and will be scheduled during the main conference. Fall School Tutorial presenters will receive a tutorial room, and standard AV equipment for a 90 minute session concurrent with the main conference sessions of SPLASH (22–24 October 2014).

All tutorial presenters must register themselves for SPLASH. The Fall School Tutorials programme cannot in general reimburse fees, but instead offers presenters the opportunity to interest SPLASH attendees, graduate students, and other researchers in your research area or tools.

Proposals

If you think SPLASH people need to know more about the area you work in, or could benefit from the great new tool you have developed, then you should propose a SPLASH Fall School tutorial on this topic.

A proposal (1 pdf page) should contain the names and email address of all presenters, the proposed topic to be covered by the tutorial, a tutorial outline, and a rationale explaining why SPLASH cannot be without your tutorial, and why you are the best people in the world to present it!

Use the ACM SIGPLAN Proceedings template to format your proposals.

Submit proposals to tutorials@splashcon.org.
