25th ACM International Systems and Software Product Line Conference (SPLC 2021)
Consolidated Call for Papers

The Systems and Software Product Line Conference (SPLC) is a premier forum where researchers, practitioners, and educators can present and discuss the most recent ideas, trends, experiences, and challenges in the area of software and system product lines engineering. Conference events include opportunities to hear industry leaders' real-world experiences and researchers' latest ideas and to learn from both.
The SPLC 2021 will be held online from September 6th to 11th. We are closely monitoring the COVID19 situation and we are committed to allowing for hybrid participation (both online and physical) if the situation improves.
* Research Papers
High-quality research work that uses established scientific methodologies, written using high standards of academic technical publications.
* Industrial Systems and Software Product Lines Papers
We invite submission of papers presenting challenges, innovations, and solutions to concrete industrial applications of software and product line engineering methodologies and tools. Submitted papers should showcase a significant software component to the research.
* Challenges and Solutions Papers
We highly encourage community members to provide concrete sets of case studies and problems that showcase SPL-related challenges. First, there will be a call for cases where researchers or practitioners are encouraged to contribute a concrete case study. Then, after the accepted case studies are published, there will be a call for solutions. Both accepted case descriptions and solutions will be included in the conference proceedings.
* Journal First Papers
Authors of journal-first papers are invited to submit their publications to present their work at SPLC. This is an opportunity to speak directly to the community and offer SPLC attendees a richer set of presentations.
* Workshop Proposals
We invite the community to submit proposals for one or two- day workshops in the field. In particular, workshops on challenging, emerging areas related to conference topics.
* Demonstrations and Tools
This track highlights live demonstrations of product-line tools and of practices tackling current industrial challenges.
* Doctoral Symposium Papers
The SPLC Doctoral Symposium aims to provide a supportive environment that enables doctoral students to get constructive feedback on their research. Students will have the opportunity to discuss their work with experienced members of the community.
* Tutorial Proposals
Tutorials provide a valuable opportunity for participants to expand their knowledge and skills in product line engineering. Tutorials may focus on introductory product lines topics, or on advanced tools, approaches, methods, and best practices.
SPLC will celebrate its silver jubilee at SPLC 2021!
At SPLC 2021, we will celebrate SPLC's silver jubilee in a dedicated session.
Distinguished speakers will shed their light on the history of SPLC and software product lines - in research and in industry.
We also plan to show a collection of photos/videos/stories by SPLC participants, for which we seek your help.
Please send any material you believe suitable to SPLC's publicity chair at splc.jubilee.25th@gmail.com
The fact that SPLC 2021 is the 25th edition of SPLC less than 25 years after the first SPLC surely is one such a remarkable story: https://splc.net/history/
