Call for papers

The European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP) is the premium international conference covering all areas of object technology and related software development technologies. ECOOP 2013 will take place from the 1st to the 5th of July, 2013 in Montpellier, France. The 2013 edition will be the 27th of the ECOOP conferences series and will embrace a broad range of topics related to object-orientation,

  • Aspects, components, modularity, and reflection
  • Concurrent and parallel systems
  • Databases and object persistence
  • Distributed and cloud computing, mobile systems
  • Programming environments, virtualization
  • Versioning, refactoring, software evolution
  • Language definition and design
  • Language implementation, execution environments, compiler construction
  • Testing, profiling, and performance analysis
  • Metrics and empirical studies
  • Software modeling, meta-modelling
  • Memory management, garbage collection
  • Object ownership
  • Design methods and design patterns
  • Real-time systems
  • Security
  • Frameworks, product lines, and software architectures
  • Specification, verification, model checking, program synthesis
  • Theoretical foundations, program analysis, and type systems
  • Service-oriented and Web programming

ECOOP 2013 solicits high quality submissions describing original and unpublished results. Papers will be evaluated according to originality and significance, precision and correctness, presentation and clarity, and relevance. Incremental improvements over previously published work should have been evaluated through systematic, comparative, empirical or experimental evaluation. Submissions of papers describing groundbreaking approaches to emerging problems will be considered based on timeliness and potential impact.

Paper Submission

Only papers that have not been published and are not under review for publication elsewhere can be submitted. Double submissions will be rejected without review. Authors are required to disclose prior publication (formal or informal) of parts of the paper submitted to ECOOP or of closely related papers. Such prior publications must be notified to the ECOOP 2013 program chair, cited in the submission and their relationship to the current submission explained. Authors are also required to inform the ECOOP 2013 program chair about closely related work submitted to another conference while the ECOOP submission is under review.

Submissions will be carried out electronically via the Cyberchair website.

Papers must be written in English, and be no longer than 25 pages, including references, appendices and figures, and written using the LNCS style. For more information about formatting please consult the Springer LNCS web site.

Clearly marked additional appendices, not intended for the final publication, containing supporting proofs, analyses, statistics, etc, may be included beyond the 25 page limit. The paper must stand alone, however, and reviewers are under no obligation to read any additional appendices. Reviewers are more likely to consult additional appendices rather than separate technical reports. ECOOP papers will be reviewed by the programme committee and additional expert reviewers.  Authors will be given a 60-hours period (from Saturday 9 February 2013, 11:00 American Samoa time to Monday 11 February 2013 23:00 American Samoa time) to read and respond to the reviews of their papers before the PC meeting. Rebuttals will have no length limit but concision will be highly appreciated by the program committee.

For ECOOP 2013, submissions that have been submitted but not accepted by previous prestigious conferences (such as ECOOP, OOPSLA, POPL, PLDI, ESOP, ICSE, or AOSD) may additionally submit a Note to Reviewers. The Note to Reviewers should a) identify the previous venue(s) (e.g. ECOOP '12, OOPSLA '10); b) list the major issues identified by the reviews at those venues; and c) describe the changes made to the paper in response to those reviews.

Artifact Evaluation

To reward creation of artifacts and replication of experiments, authors of accepted research papers can have their artifacts (tools, data, models, videos...) evaluated by an Artifact Evaluation Committee. Artifacts that pass muster will be recognized formally, and be fast-tracked for additional presentation. Artifacts that are deemed especially meritorious will be singled out for special recognition in the proceedings and at the conference.
