Sun 15 - Sat 21 November 2020 Online Conference

Following its long-standing tradition, SPLASH will host a variety of workshops, allowing their participants to meet and discuss research questions with peers, to mature new and exciting ideas, and to build up communities and start new collaborations. SPLASH workshops complement the main tracks of the conference and provide meetings in a smaller and more specialized setting. The following workshops will be co-located with SPLASH 2020.

Call for Workshops

We encourage proposals for workshops on any topic relevant to SPLASH. If there is a topic you feel passionate about, and want to connect with others who have similar interests, submit a workshop proposal! We more than welcome new, and unconventional ideas for workshop formats. The following suggestions are a starting point:

  • Conference-style workshops allow participants to present their work to other domain experts. The smaller and more focused setting of a workshop allows for Q&A sessions and facilitates discussions. Presentations of work-in-progress are welcome.
  • Retreats act as a platform for experts to gather to tackle issues of a predetermined research agenda. Retreats are highly interactive and goal-oriented, allowing participants to address open challenges, explore new and uncharted ideas.
  • Agenda-setting workshops provide a forum for experts to determine a research agenda for a sub-field.
  • Other common activities at workshops include poster sessions, hands-on practical work, and focus groups.

Workshops that include presentation of research papers, and that implement a SIGPLAN-approved selection process may archive proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. The workshop chairs will provide advice on achieving this for those interested. Workshop applications will be considered until 1st April 2020 or until all slots are allocated.

Important Deadlines

Friday, September 4, 2020 is the paper/abstract submission deadline for all workshops.

The early registration deadline for SPLASH is October 15, 2020. 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, tentatively October 12, 2020 is the camera-ready deadline. Therefore, you should plan to notify authors several days before this date, so that they have time for revisions.


Please email the workshop co-chairs with any questions.
