‹Programming› 2018
Mon 9 - Thu 12 April 2018 Nice, France

Call for Demonstrations

‹Programming› 2018 aims to provide an opportunity for participants from academia and industry to give demonstrations of their latest applications and systems to fellow researchers and practitioners.

Demonstrations will be selected on the basis of technical merit, relevance, and novelty of presentation at ‹Programming›. They can include work in progress, commercial or in-house applications, proofs of concept, results of academic or industrial research, or any other innovative programming tools or systems. We encourage authors of accepted papers to co-located workshops and main conferences also submit a demo proposal. We hope that this will give them the opportunity to show their work in action, and increase the visibility of their results. We suggest to cite the paper in the demo abstract.

The demo abstracts of the accepted demonstrations will be published in the ACM DL via the conference companion.


Demo abstracts should be submitted as PDF files, consist of two pages or less. They should conform to the ACM SIGPLAN conference template, using the acmart class with the sigconf option, in 10pt font.
Submissions should be sent to the Demo Chair (t…@hpi.uni-potsdam.de).

A demo proposal must include:

  • a title,
  • names, affiliations, contact information,
  • a description of the demonstration that highlights the innovations and addresses what a wide range of attendees will find compelling in the demonstration.

If you feel that it would help make your proposal stronger, you are welcome to provide additional details, e.g., screenshots.

Each demo will have one 45 minutes slot, including discussion.

Only the basic demonstration set-up (a suitably sized room with a table, projector, screen, electrical power, and a generally available wireless network connection) will be provided. Any special needs or requirements for the demonstration, e.g., additional equipment, room set-up, or a wired network connection, must be communicated at submission time, and the Demo Chair will advise the submitters if it is unable to fulfill those requirements.

For additional information, clarification, or answers to questions please contact the Demo Chair (Tobias Pape t…@hpi.uni-potsdam.de).
