Submission Information

Submitted papers should be in portable document format (PDF), formatted using the standard ACM SIGPLAN two-column conference style (10pt format). Regular research papers must not exceed 10 pages, tool demonstration papers and short papers must not exceed 4 pages. “Tool Demos” and “Short Papers” should be marked as such with those words in the title at time of submission.

At least one author of each accepted contribution must attend the workshop and present the work. In the case of tool demonstration papers, a live demonstration of the described tool is expected. Authors are strongly encouraged to consult the advice for authoring research papers before submitting. The workshop chairs welcome any inquiries about the authoring advice.

Note: “Short Papers” differ from “Tool Demos” in that “Short Papers” are approached as short research papers. “Short Papers” are expected to carry some new insights or contribution, and to compare with related work, as with any normal research paper. They’re simply shorter versions of full research papers. “Tool Demos” on the other hand are about showcasing a well-developed, well-documented tool, live, before the workshop. “Tool Demo”s’ corresponding papers are meant to contain an overview of the tool and methodology for the tool’s use. Tool demo papers are less concerned about proving new research insights, or thoroughly comparing with related work. The Scala Workshop PC will approach Tool Demos in the same way as the PEPM Workshop PC, detailed in PEPM’s Tool Paper Evaluation Criteria

A week before the paper submission deadline, authors have to submit a short plain-text abstract via EasyChair (see below).

Student Talks

In addition to regular papers and tool demos, we also solicit short student talks by bachelor/master/PhD students. A student talk is not accompanied by a paper (it is sufficient to submit a short abstract of the talk in plain text). Student talks are 5-10 minutes long, presenting ongoing or completed research related to Scala, or announcing a project that would be of interest to the Scala community. “Student Talks” should be marked as such with those words in the title at time of submission.
