Call for Papers

This conference will be held in cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN and ACM SIGAPP.


Java programming is multi-faceted, covering a rich diversity of systems, tools, frameworks and techniques. PPPJ provides a forum for researchers, practitioners and educators to present and discuss novel results on all aspects of Java programming including the language and its virtual machine, methods, tools, frameworks, case studies, and experience reports. We invite papers on all these aspects. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • The Java Language and Systems
  • Other Languages for the JVM
  • VM Design and Optimization
  • Software Engineering with Java
  • Model-driven Development in Java
  • Component- and Service-oriented Architectures
  • Java Frameworks and Tools
  • Java and Formal Methods
  • Testing, Analysis and Metrics
  • Java on Mobile and Embedded Devices
  • Java Concurrency
  • Parallelization of Java programs
  • Applications in Science, Engineering, and Business
  • Java Practice and Experience Reports
  • Teaching Java

Submission Guidelines

All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not currently under review. Papers will be evaluated according to their significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and relevance to the conference.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference.

Two types of paper submissions will be accepted: research/experience papers as well as tool demonstration papers. Research/experience papers must not exceed 10 pages, while tool demonstration papers must not exceed 4 pages. Submitted papers should clearly indicate their type.

The conference proceedings will be published as part of the ACM International Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library. We plan to invite the authors of the best papers to provide an extended version for a special issue of Elsevier Science of Computer Programming.

The required format for the submission is the ACM SIGPLAN Proceedings Style. The author information containing the Latex and Word templates can be found here. Please apply the ACM Computing Classification categories and terms (link).

Authors should submit a one-page abstract and title for consideration by April 18, 2010. This should be followed by submission of the complete paper by April 25, 2010.

All abstracts and papers should be submitted using the electronic submission system [easychair.org].
