‹Programming› 2019
Mon 1 - Thu 4 April 2019 Genoa, Italy

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.

Notes on Proceedings

Workshops that wish to have their proceedings published in the ACM DL will have the opportunity to have either a pre or post proceedings. However, chairs will be responsible for collecting and verifying final copies, including PDFs and their source files, as well as paper metadata, in a format required by the publisher. The deadlines mentioned above are strict and we won’t be able to extend them. Please consider them carefully when determining your deadlines for the workshop.
