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.
