Sun 15 - Sat 21 November 2020 Online Conference

Welcome to SPLASH 2020, the ACM SIGPLAN conference on Systems, Programming, Languages, and Applications: Software for Humanity. SPLASH embraces all aspects of software construction and delivery, to make it the premier conference on the applications of programming languages—at the intersection of programming languages and software engineering. SPLASH takes place Sunday November 15th to Friday 20th.

Update: Nov 15, 2020, 0700 CST: SPLASH registration is now SOLD OUT. The virtual conference system has no more capacity. You can still watch conference talks by accessing our six talks streams here; however, you wouldn’t be able to ask questions and interact with the attendees.

NEW: Watch a quick 6-minute instructional video on How to Attend SPLASH 2020 here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bFiiuIEBG5I

VIRTUAL SPLASH has three main streams:

  1. SPLASH-I for OOPSLA and ECOOP research papers;
  2. SPLASH-II for REBASE industry-oriented talks;
  3. SPLASH-III for the major co-located events: GPCE/SLE on Sunday/Monday; Onward! Papers and Essays on Tuesday; SAS/DLS on Wednesday/Thursday; and OOPSLA research papers on Friday.

MIRRORING In what we think is world first, SPLASH will do 12 hour mirroring, each conference days will be exactly 12 hours long with every single talk scheduled to repeat with a 12 hour delay. Therefore: whatever YOUR time zone happens to be, you can attend SPLASH during any convenient 12 hour block. For example: Alex from New Zealand plans to attend between 8am and 8pm NZ Standard Time; Jan from Czechia plans to attend between 8am and 8pm Central European Time, while Hridesh from Iowa plans to attend between 9am and 9pm Central Daylight Time! We made a two minute video explaining how mirroring works and why we’re using it.

Workshops will take place outside the main three streams in virtual rooms SPLASH IV-VI. Please consult this table for details and login to SPLASH Clowdr to enter these rooms:
