Software Language Engineering (SLE) is the application of systematic,
disciplined, and measurable approaches to the development, use,
deployment, and maintenance of software languages. The term "software
language" is used broadly, and includes: general-purpose programming
languages; domain-specific languages (e.g. BPMN, Simulink, Modelica);
modeling and metamodeling languages (e.g. SysML and UML); data models
and ontologies (e.g. XML-based and OWL-based languages and

### Topics of Interest

SLE aims to be broad-minded and inclusive about relevance and scope.
We solicit high-quality contributions in areas ranging from
theoretical and conceptual contributions to tools, techniques, and
frameworks in the domain of language engineering. Topics relevant to
SLE cover generic aspects of software languages development rather
than aspects of engineering a specific language. In particular, SLE is
interested in principled engineering approaches and techniques in the
following areas:

* Language Design and Implementation
      * Approaches and methodologies for language design
      * Static semantics (e.g., design rules, well-formedness constraints)
      * Techniques for behavioral / executable semantics
      * Generative approaches (incl. code synthesis, compilation)
      * Meta-languages, meta-tools, language workbenches

* Language Validation
      * Verification and formal methods for languages
      * Testing techniques for languages
      * Simulation techniques for languages

* Language Integration and Composition
      * Coordination of heterogeneous languages and tools
      * Mappings between languages (incl. transformation languages)
      * Traceability between languages
      * Deployment of languages to different platforms

* Language Maintenance
      * Software language reuse
      * Language evolution
      * Language families and variability

* Domain-specific approaches for any aspects of SLE (design,
implementation, validation, maintenance)

* Empirical evaluation and experience reports of language engineering tools
      * User studies evaluating usability
      * Performance benchmarks
      * Industrial applications

### Types of Submissions

* **Research papers**: These should report a substantial research
contribution to SLE or successful application of SLE techniques or
both. Full paper submissions must not exceed 12 pages including
bibliography in ACM SIGPLAN conference style

* **Tool papers**: Because of SLE's interest in tools, we seek papers
that present software tools related to the field of SLE. Selection
criteria include originality of the tool, its innovative aspects, and
relevance to SLE. Any of the SLE topics of interest are appropriate
areas for tool demonstrations. Submissions must provide a tool
description of 4 pages including bibliography in ACM SIGPLAN
conference style (http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/), and a
demonstration outline including screenshots of up to 6 pages. Tool
demonstrations must have the keywords bTool Demob or bTool
Demonstrationb in the title. The 4-page tool description will, if the
demonstration is accepted, be published in the proceedings. The 6-page
demonstration outline will be used by the program committee only for
evaluating the submission.

* **Industrial papers**: These should describe real-world application
scenarios of SLE in industry, explained in their context with an
analysis of the challenges that were overcome and the lessons which
the audience can learn from this experience. Industry paper
submissions must not exceed 6 pages including bibliography in ACM
SIGPLAN conference style (http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/).

* **New ideas / vision papers**: New ideas papers should describe new,
non-conventional SLE research approaches that depart from standard
practice. They are intended to describe well-defined research ideas
that are at an early stage of investigation. Vision papers are
intended to present new unifying theories about existing SLE research
that can lead to the development of new technologies or approaches.
New ideas / vision papers must not exceed 4 pages including
bibliography in ACM SIGPLAN conference style

### Artifact evaluation

Authors of accepted papers at SLE 2017 are encouraged to submit their
experiment results used for underpinning research statements to an
artifact evaluation process. This submission is voluntary and will not
influence the final decision regarding the papers.

Papers that go through the Artifact Evaluation process successfully
receive a seal of approval printed on the first page of the paper in
the proceedings. Authors of papers with accepted artifacts are
encouraged to make these materials publicly available upon publication
of the proceedings, by including them as "source materials" in the ACM
Digital Library.

### Publications

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least three members of the
program committee. All accepted papers, including tool papers,
industrial papers and new ideas / vision papers will be published in
ACM Digital Library.

Selected accepted papers will be invited to a special issue of the
Computer Languages, Systems and Structures (COMLAN) journal.

### Awards

* **Distinguished paper**: Award for most notable paper, as determined
by the PC chairs based on the recommendations of the program

* **Distinguished reviewer**: Award for distinguished reviewer, as
determined by the PC chairs using feedback from the authors.

* **Distinguished artifact**: Award for the artifact most
significantly exceeding expectations, as determined by the AEC chairs
based on the recommendations of the artifact evaluation committee.
