GPCE 2020:
19th International Conference on Generative Programming: Concepts & 

November 16-17, 2020
Chicago, IL (USA)
(a part of the SPLASH series of conferences)



The ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Generative Programming: 
Concepts & Experiences is a programming languages conference focusing on 
techniques and tools for code generation, language implementation, and 
product-line development. GPCE seeks conceptual, theoretical, empirical, 
and technical contributions to its topics of interest, which include but 
are not limited to:

program transformation, staging, macro systems, preprocessors, program 
synthesis, and code-recommendation systems,
domain-specific languages, language embedding, language design, and 
language workbenches,
feature-oriented programming, domain engineering, and feature 
applications and properties of code generation, language implementation, 
and product-line development.

Authors are welcome to check with the PC chair whether their planned 
papers are in scope.


- Abstract submission: July 20, 2020 (Monday), AoE
- Paper submission: July 27, 2020 (Monday), AoE
- Author notification: September 9, 2020 (Wednesday)
- Conference: November 16-17, 2020


The GPCE program committee will evaluate each submission according to 
the following selection criteria:

- Novelty. Papers must present new ideas or evidence and place them 
appropriately within the context established by previous research in the 
- Significance. The results in the paper must have the potential to add 
to the state of the art or practice in significant ways.
- Evidence. The paper must present evidence supporting its claims. 
Examples of evidence include formalizations and proofs, implemented 
systems, experimental results, statistical analyses, and case studies.
- Clarity. The paper must present its contributions and results clearly.


GPCE solicits three kinds of submissions:

- Full Papers reporting original and unpublished results of research 
that contribute to scientific knowledge in any GPCE topic listed above. 
Full paper submissions must not exceed 12 pages excluding bibliography.
- Short Papers presenting unconventional ideas or visions about any GPCE 
topic listed above. Short papers do not always require complete results 
as in the case of a full paper. In this way, authors can introduce new 
ideas to the community and get early feedback. Please note that short 
papers are not intended to be position statements. Short papers are 
included in the proceedings and will be presented at the conference. 
Short paper submissions must not exceed 6 pages excluding bibliography. 
Short papers must have the text “(Short Paper)” appended to their title, 
though any papers of 6 or fewer pages that are not tool demonstration 
papers will be considered as short papers.
- Tool Demonstrations presenting tools for any GPCE topic listed above. 
Tools must be available for use and must not be purely commercial. 
Submissions must provide a tool description not exceeding 6 pages 
excluding bibliography and a separate demonstration outline including 
screenshots also not exceeding 6 pages. Tool demonstrations must have 
the keywords “Tool Demo” or “Tool Demonstration” appended in their 
title. If the submission is accepted, the tool description will be 
published in the proceedings. The demonstration outline will only be 
used by the program committee for evaluating the submission.


All submissions must use the ACM SIGPLAN Conference Format “acmart” 
(http://sigplan.org/Resources/Author/#acmart-format). Please be sure to 
use the latest LaTeX templates and class files. the SIGPLAN sub-format, 
and 10 point font. Consult the sample-sigplan.tex template and use the 
document-class \documentclass[sigplan,anonymous,review]{acmart}. Please 
do not make any changes to this format!

To increase fairness in reviewing, a double-blind review process has 
become standard across SIGPLAN conferences. GPCE will follow a very 
lightweight model, where author identities are revealed to reviewers 
after submitting their initial reviews. Hence, the purpose is not to 
conceal author identities at all cost, but merely to provide reviewers 
with an unbiased first look at a submission. Author names and 
institutions should be omitted from submitted papers, and references to 
the authors’ own related work should be in the third person. No other 
changes are necessary, and authors will not be penalized if reviewers 
are able to infer their identities in implicit ways.

Papers must be submitted using HotCRP: https://gpce2020.hotcrp.com/

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made 
available in the ACM Digital Library. Papers must describe work not 
currently submitted for publication elsewhere as described by the 
SIGPLAN Republication Policy
