SPLASH 2020
Sun 15 - Sat 21 November 2020 Online Conference

The AGERE! workshop is aimed at focusing on programming systems, languages and applications based on actors, active/concurrent objects, agents and—more generally—on high-level programming paradigms which promote decentralized control in solving problems and developing software.

The workshop is intended to cover both the theory and the practice of design and programming, bringing together researchers working on models, languages and technologies, and practitioners developing real-world systems and applications.

Call for Papers

The AGERE! workshop focuses on programming systems, languages and applications based on actors, active/concurrent objects, agents and–more generally–on high-level programming paradigms promoting a mindset of decentralized control in solving problems and developing software. The workshop is intended to cover both the theory and the practice of design and programming, bringing together researchers working on models, languages and technologies, with practitioners developing real-world systems and applications.

The goal of the workshop is to serve as a forum for collecting, discussing, and comparing related research works that typically appear in different communities in the context of (distributed) artificial intelligence, distributed computing, computer programming, programming language design and software engineering.

The workshop will be organized as a one-day workshop, integrating both:

  • A part with a mini-conference style, like previous editions, reserving time slots for the presentation and discussion of accepted contributions that are published on the formal proceedings on the ACM Digital Library.

  • A part featuring demonstrations of artefacts described by a set of demo papers submitted to the workshop, selected by the Program Committee, to present interesting results and to solicit discussions on ideas and challenges.

The workshop welcomes two types of contributions:

  • Mature contributions: full papers presenting new, previously unpublished research in one or more of the topics identified above. Full papers will be published on the ACM Digital Library as an official ACM SIGPLAN publication.

  • Demo contributions: short papers describing artefacts that authors agree to demonstrate at the workshop, also to trigger discussions and interactions. Demo papers will be included in the informal proceedings.

Format and Submission

Authors are invited to submit their papers in PDF using the submission system at https://agere20.hotcrp.com/.

  • Full papers: up to 10 pages, including references
  • Demo papers: up to 2 pages, excluding references

The (extended) deadline is September 1, 2020.

Submissions should use the ACM SIGPLAN Conference acmart Format with ‘sigplan’ Subformat, 10 point font. All submissions should be in PDF format. If you use LaTeX or Word, please use the ACM SIGPLAN acmart templates. Otherwise, follow the author instructions.

If you are formatting your paper using LaTeX, you will need to set the 10pt option in the \documentclass command. If you are formatting your paper using Word, you may wish to use the provided Word template that supports this font size. Please include page numbers in your submission with the LaTeX \settopmatter{printfolios=true} command. Please also ensure that your submission is legible when printed on a black and white printer. In particular, please check that colors remain distinct and font sizes are legible.
