Call for workshops: ECOOP and ISSTA 2021

by Lisa Nguyen Quang Do, Jan. 12, 2021

Call for workshops: 35th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP'21) & 30th ACM SIGSOFT International Symposium on Software Testing and Analysis (ISSTA'21)


              The 30th Edition of ISSTA and the 35th Edition of ECOOP

                               Call for Workshops

                              12th-16th July 2021

                                Aarhus, Denmark


ECOOP is a conference about programming. Originally its primary focus 

was on object orientation, but now it looks at a much broader range of 

programming topics. Areas of interest include the design, implementation, 

optimization, analysis, testing, verification, and theory of programs, 

programming languages, and programming environments. Papers may focus on new 

tools (e.g., language implementations, program analyses, runtime systems), 

techniques (e.g., code organization approaches, methodologies), principles (e.g., 

semantics, proofs, paradigms), evaluations (e.g., experiments, corpora analyses, 

user studies), or some combination of the above. ECOOP solicits both innovative 

and creative solutions to real problems as well as evaluations of existing 

solutions that provide new insights. It also encourages the submission of 

reproduction studies.

ISSTA is the leading research symposium on software testing and analysis, 

bringing together academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners to 

exchange new ideas, problems, and experience on how to analyze and test software 


Both conferences will be co-located in Aarhus, Denmark, on July 12-16, 2021.

Call for Workshops


ECOOP and ISSTA will host a diverse offering of workshops bringing together 

academics, industrial researchers, and practitioners to exchange new ideas, 

problems, and experiences. Topics for workshops may include, but are not limited 

to, the theory, design, implementation, optimization, testing, and analysis of 

programs and programming languages. Workshop organizers are encouraged to take 

advantage of the co-location of the two conferences to broaden participation and 

offer topics that may be of interest to multiple communities.

To submit a proposal for an ECOOP/ISSTA workshop, please complete the online 

application form linked to below. After submitting, you will receive an automated 

email confirmation of your submission and, within four weeks, a formal response 

notifying you if the workshop has been accepted for ECOOP/ISSTA. Proposals will 

be reviewed on a rolling basis until January 31, 2021.

Link to Online Application Form:

Each workshop must conform to the following schedule constraints:

- The workshop’s website must be live within two weeks of notification of 

the workshop’s acceptance and include relevant information about any call 

for papers.

- The paper submission date for the workshop must be at least one week after the final technical paper notification date for both main conferences, i.e. the earliest workshop submission date can be April 26th, 2021.

- Final notification dates for paper acceptance to workshops must be at least 3

days before the early registration period ends.
