We are pleased to invite you to submit papers to the 17th ACM SIGPLAN
International Conference on Software Language Engineering (SLE 2024),
held in conjunction with SPLASH 2024. The conference will be hosted in
Pasadena, California, United States on October 20-25, 2024.

Topics of Interest

SLE covers software language engineering in general, rather than
engineering a specific software language. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to:

* Software Language Design and Implementation
      - Approaches to and methods for language design
      - Static semantics (e.g., design rules, well-formedness constraints)
      - Techniques for specifying behavioral/executable semantics
      - Generative approaches (incl. code synthesis, compilation)
      - Meta-languages, meta-tools, language workbenches
* Validation of Software Language Tools and Implementations
      - Verification and formal methods for language tools and implementations
      - Testing techniques for language tools and implementations
      - Simulation techniques for language tools and implementations
* Software Language Maintenance
      - Software language reuse
      - Language evolution
      - Language families and variability, language and software product lines
* Software Language Integration and Composition
      - Coordination of heterogeneous languages and tools
      - Mappings between languages (incl. transformation languages)
      - Traceability between languages
      - Deployment of languages to different platforms
* Domain-Specific Approaches for Any Aspects of SLE (analysis, design,
implementation, validation, maintenance)
* Empirical Studies and Experience Reports of Tools
      - User studies evaluating usability
      - Performance benchmarks
      - Industrial applications
* Synergies between Language Engineering and Emerging/Promising Research Areas
      - AI and ML language engineering (e.g., ML compiler testing, code
      - Quantum language engineering (e.g., language design for quantum machines)
      - Language engineering for cyber-physical systems, IoT, digital twins, etc.
      - Socio-technical systems and language engineering (e.g., language
evolution to adapt to social requirements)
      - Etc.

Types of Submissions

SLE accepts the following types of papers:

Research papers: These are “traditional” papers detailing research
contributions to SLE. Papers may range from 6 to 12 pages in length
and may optionally include 2 further pages of bibliography/appendices.
Papers will be reviewed with an understanding that some results do not
need 12 full pages and may be fully described in fewer pages.

New ideas/vision papers: These papers may describe new, unconventional
software language engineering research positions or approaches that
depart from standard practice. They can describe well-defined research
ideas that are at an early stage of investigation. They could also
provide new evidence to challenge common wisdom, present new unifying
theories about existing SLE research that provides novel insight or
that can lead to the development of new technologies or approaches, or
apply SLE technology to radically new application areas. New
ideas/vision papers must not exceed 5 pages and may optionally include
1 further page of bibliography/appendices.

SLE Body of Knowledge: The SLE Body of Knowledge (SLEBoK) is a
community-wide effort to provide a unique and comprehensive
description of the concepts, best practices, tools, and methods
developed by the SLE community. These papers can focus on, but are not
limited to, methods, techniques, best practices, and teaching
approaches. Papers in this category can have up to 20 pages, including

Tool papers: These papers focus on the tooling aspects often forgotten
or neglected in research papers. A good tool paper focuses on
practical insights that will likely be useful to other implementers or
users in the future. Any of the SLE topics of interest are appropriate
areas for tool demonstrations. Submissions must not exceed 5 pages and
may optionally include 1 further page of bibliography/appendices. They
may optionally include an appendix with a demo outline/screenshots
and/or a short video/screencast illustrating the tool.

**Workshops**: Workshops will be organized by SPLASH. Please inform us
and contact the SPLASH organizers if you would like to organize a
workshop of interest to the SLE audience. Information on how to submit
workshops can be found on the SPLASH 2024 Website.


SLE 2024 has a single submission round for papers, including a
rebuttal phase, where all authors of research papers will have the
possibility of responding to the reviews on their submissions.

Authors of accepted research papers will be invited to submit artifacts.

Important Dates

All dates are Anywhere on Earth

* Abstract Submissions: Fri 14 Jun, 2024
* Paper Submissions: Mon 24 Jun, 2024
* Authors Response Period: Mon 12 Aug - Sat 17 Aug, 2024
* Authors Notification: Fri 30 Aug 2024
* Conference: Sun 20 October - Fri 25 October 2024 (co-located with
SPLASH, precise dates to be announced)


Submissions have to use the ACM SIGPLAN Conference Format “acmart”
(https://sigplan.org/Resources/Author/#acmart-format); please make
sure that you always use the latest ACM SIGPLAN acmart LaTeX template,
and that the document class definition is
`\documentclass[sigplan,anonymous,review]{acmart}`. Do not make any
changes to this format!

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 in figures and tables are legible.

To increase fairness in reviewing, a double-blind review process has
become standard across SIGPLAN conferences. Accordingly, SLE will
follow the double-blind process. Author names and institutions must be
omitted from submitted papers, and references to the authors’ own
related work should be in the third person. No other changes are
necessary, and authors will not be penalized if reviewers are able to
infer their identities in implicit ways.

All submissions must be in PDF format. The submission website is:

Concurrent Submissions

Papers must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted
for publication elsewhere as described by SIGPLAN’s Republication
Policy (https://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Policies/Republication/).
Submitters should also be aware of ACM’s Policy and Procedures on
Plagiarism (https://www.acm.org/publications/policies/plagiarism-overview).
Submissions that violate these policies will be desk-rejected.

Policy on Human Participant and Subject Research

Authors conducting research involving human participants and subjects
must ensure that their research complies with their local governing
laws and regulations and the ACM’s general principles, as stated in
the ACM’s Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants
and Subjects (https://www.acm.org/publications/policies/research-involving-human-participants-and-subjects).
If submissions are found to be violating this policy, they will be

Reviewing Process

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the
program committee. Research papers and tool papers will be evaluated
concerning soundness, relevance, novelty, presentation, and
replicability. New ideas/vision papers will be evaluated primarily
concerning soundness, relevance, novelty, and presentation. SLEBoK
papers will be reviewed on their soundness, relevance, originality,
and presentation. Tool papers will be evaluated concerning relevance,
presentation, and replicability.

For fairness reasons, all submitted papers must conform to the above
instructions. Submissions that violate these instructions may be
rejected without review at the discretion of the PC chairs.

For research papers, authors will get a chance to respond to the
reviews before a final decision is made.

Artifact Evaluation

SLE will use an evaluation process to assess the quality of artifacts
on which papers are based to foster the culture of experimental
reproducibility. Authors of accepted research papers are invited to
submit artifacts. For more information, please see the Artifact
Evaluation (https://2024.splashcon.org/track/sle-2024#Artifact-Evaluation)


Distinguished paper: Award for the most notable paper, as determined by the PC
chairs based on the recommendations of the program committee.

Distinguished artifact: Award for the artifact most significantly exceeding
expectations, as determined by the AEC chairs based on the recommendations of
the artifact evaluation committee.


All accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

**AUTHORS TAKE NOTE**: The official publication date is the date the
proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date
may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the conference. The
official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings
related to published work.

SLE and Doctoral Students

SLE encourages students to submit to the SPLASH doctoral symposium.
Authors of accepted doctoral symposium papers on SLE topics will also
have the chance to present their work to the SLE audience.
