Make a SPLASH – Write a Paper

January 5, 2011

in Conferences

The ACM SPLASH Conference has published the call for papers for a new SPLASH program component called Wavefront that is focused on what I call “webish” computing.  To quote the CfP:

The nature of computing is rapidly changing. Whether you label it ubiquitous, ambient, pervasive, social, mobile, web, cloud, or post-PC computing, it touches all aspects of human life. Wavefront papers are about the real systems, programming languages, and applications that are at the heart of this transition.

The Wavefront program is looking for submissions about real systems from working software developers, not only academic researchers.  It encourages submissions from authors who have not previously published conference papers and has a shepherding process to help such authors prepare their final paper.

I’m the SPLASH/Wavefront program chair and I encourage anyone who is innovating in this area to start working on a submission.  The submission deadline is April 8, 2011.  SPLASH 2011 will be October 22-27, 2011 in Portland, Oregon. See the CfP for more details.

Over the next few days I will have additional background posts about SPLASH/Wavefront and why you should consider making a submission and/or consider attending.
