GPCE is a venue for researchers and practitioners interested in techniques

and tools for code generation, language implementation, and metaprogramming.

GPCE seeks conceptual, theoretical, empirical, and technical contributions

to its topics of interest, which include but are not limited to:

* program transformation, staging, macro systems, preprocessors, program

 synthesis, and code-recommendation systems,

* domain-specific languages, language embedding, language design, and

 language workbenches,

* feature-oriented programming, domain engineering, and feature


* applications and properties of code generation, language

 implementation, and product-line development.

Authors are welcome to check with the program co-chairs whether their planned

papers are in scope.


The GPCE program committee will evaluate each submission according to the

following selection criteria:

* Novelty. Papers must present new ideas or evidence and place them

 appropriately within the context established by previous research in

 the field.

* Significance. The results in the paper must have the potential to add

 to the state of the art or practice in significant ways.

* Evidence. The paper must present evidence supporting its claims.

 Examples of evidence include formalizations and proofs, implemented

 systems, experimental results, statistical analyses, and case studies.

* Clarity. The paper must present its contributions and results clearly.


GPCE solicits three kinds of submissions.

* Full Papers reporting original and unpublished results of research that

contribute to scientific knowledge in any GPCE topic listed above. Full

paper submissions must not exceed 12 pages excluding bibliography.

* Short Papers presenting unconventional ideas or visions about any GPCE

topic listed above. Short papers do not always require complete results

as in the case of a full paper. In this way, authors can introduce new

ideas to the community and get early feedback. Please note that short

papers are not intended to be position statements. Short papers are

included in the proceedings and will be presented at the conference.

Short paper submissions must not exceed 6 pages excluding bibliography.

* Tool Demonstrations presenting tools for any GPCE topic listed above.

Tools must be available for use and must not be purely commercial.

Submissions must provide a tool description not exceeding 6 pages

excluding bibliography and a separate demonstration outline including

screenshots also not exceeding 6 pages. Tool demonstrations must have

the keywords "Tool Demo" or "Tool Demonstration" in their title. If the

submission is accepted, the tool description will be published in the

proceedings. The demonstration outline will only be used by the program

committee for evaluating the submission.


All submissions must use the ACM SIGPLAN Conference Format "acmart",

using the "sigplan" sub-format, and 10 point font. Additional details

and links to templates and the LaTeX class file can be found on the

conference web site:

To increase fairness in reviewing, a double-blind review process has

become standard across SIGPLAN conferences. GPCE will follow a very

lightweight model, where author identities are revealed to reviewers

after submitting their initial reviews. Hence, the purpose is not to

conceal author identities at all cost, but merely to provide reviewers

with an unbiased first look at a submission. Author names and

institutions should be omitted from submitted papers, and references

to the authors' own related work should be in the third person.

No other changes are necessary, and authors will not be penalized

if reviewers are able to infer their identities in implicit ways.

Papers must be submitted using HotCRP:

For additional information, clarification, or answers to questions

please contact the program co-chairs.
