Workshop proposals will be selected based on the quality of the proposal and according to the space available. The following questions may help devise a high-quality proposal:
- Are there at least two organizers, and do they represent a reasonably varied cross-section of the community close to the topic?
- Does the abstract present a compelling case for the importance of the topic area?
- Are the goals of the workshop expressed clearly?
- Is the topic likely to be attractive to SPLASH attendees?
- Does the chosen format encourage a high level of interaction between the participants?
- Is a workshop the right forum to address the theme and goals?
- Proposals are limited by the available conference rooms. Submissions will only be evaluated if there is space available on a first-come-first-served basis.
- All workshops must host their content on conf.researchr.org, the content management system that SPLASH uses.
- We strongly encourage you to use HotCRP for managing submissions. You do not have to pay or self-host because the ACM will sponsor the workshop.
- July 7, 2024 is the paper/abstract submission deadline for all workshops.
- The early registration deadline for SPLASH is TBD. Before the SPLASH early registration deadline, all workshops must a) send out accept/reject notifications, and b) publish a draft schedule on the SPLASH website.
- For workshops with proceedings published in the ACM Digital Library, September 1 2024 is the camera-ready deadline. Therefore, you should plan to notify authors several days before this date so that they have time for revisions.
How many attendees will the workshop have? Please specify the expected number of attendees, the minimum number of attendees, and the maximum number of attendees (if applicable).
Will the workshop’s proceedings appear in the ACM Digital Library?
- The proceedings must be peer-reviewed,
- The program committee must adhere to the SIGPLAN Diversity Policy; and
- The program committee must be approved by the SIGPLAN Executive Committee, as described in the SIGPLAN Diversity Policy.
Make sure the PC is approved by SIGPLAN by submitting your organizing and program committees to the SIGPLAN Vice Chair for approval by the Executive Committee, in the form of a PC proposal spreadsheet.
Does the workshop have any special requirements? E.g., will it require a special room configuration or A/V equipment? All workshops will have a projector available. SPLASH does not record workshop talks.
Brief biography of workshop chairs. We strongly recommend having at least two co-chairs.
Who do you anticipate having on the program committee? It is okay if they have not yet been invited. Don’t forget that you will need to have the PC approved by SIGPLAN.
Information (e.g. # of submissions and attendees) about previous iterations of the workshop, if any.
Organizers’ email addresses (comma separated).
We will use these addresses for workshop-related correspondence. If the workshop is accepted, we will add these email addresses to a mailing list for all workshop organizers. We will delete the mailing list after SPLASH concludes.
Please give us email addresses that will remain active for at least 1 year from now!
