<Programming> 2017 : The Art, Science, and Engineering of Programming

April 3-6, 2017, Brussels, Belgium

We started a new conference and journal focused on everything to do with programming, including the experience of programming. We call the conference <Programming> for short. Paper submissions and publications are handled by the journal. Accepted papers must be presented at the conference.


<Programming> 2017 accept scholarly papers including essays that advance the knowledge of programming. Almost anything about programming is in scope, but in each case there should be a clear relevance to the act and experience of programming.

PAPER SUBMISSIONS: December 1, 2016

We accept submissions covering several areas of expertise. These areas include, but are not limited to:

• General-purpose programming
• Distributed systems programming
• Parallel and multi-core programming
• Graphics and GPU programming
• Security programming
• User interface programming
• Database programming
• Visual and live programming
• Data mining and machine learning programming
• Interpreters, virtual machines and compilers
• Modularity and separation of concerns
• Model-based development
• Metaprogramming and reflection
• Testing and debugging
• Program verification
• Programming education
• Programming environments
• Social coding


To build a community and to foster an environment where participants can exchange ideas and experiences related to practical software development, ‹Programming› will host a number of workshops, during the days before the main conference. The workshops will provide a collaborative forum to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community. They are intended as a forum for lively discussion of innovative ideas, recent progress, or practical experience on programming and applied software development in general for specific aspects, specific problems, or domain-specific needs. We also encourage practical, hands-on workshops in which participants actually experience one or several aspects of practical software development.


The duration of workshops is in general one day, but we encourage the submission of half-day workshop proposals on focused topics as well. In exceptional situations, e.g., for workshops that involve actual practice of programming-related activities, workshop organizers can request a 2 day workshop slot. If desired, the workshop proceedings can be published in the ACM Digital Library.
