The Java platform is multi-faceted, covering a rich diversity of systems, languages, tools, frameworks, and techniques. PPPJ’14 – the 11th conference in the PPPJ series – provides a forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss novel results on all aspects of programming on the Java platform including virtual machines, languages, tools, methods, frameworks, libraries, case studies, and experience reports.
TOPICS of interest include but are not limited to:
Virtual machines for Java and Java-like language support:
- JVM and similar VMs
- VM design and optimization
- VMs for mobile and embedded devices
- Real-time VMs
- Isolation and resource control
Languages on the Java platform:
- JVM languages (Clojure, Groovy, Java, JRuby, Kotlin, Scala, …)
- Domain-specific languages
- Language design and calculi
- Language interoperability
- Parallelism and concurrency
- Modular and aspect-oriented programming
- Model-driven development
- Frameworks and applications
Techniques and tools for the Java platform:
- Static and dynamic program analysis
- Security and information flow
- Workload characterization
Please contact the PC Chair, Bruce Childers (email: childers(at)cs.pitt.edu) to clarify whether a particular topic falls within the scope of PPPJ’14.
PPPJ’14 submissions must conform to both the ACM Policy on Prior Publication and Simultaneous Submissions and to the SIGPLAN Republication Policy.
PPPJ accepts three types of papers:
* Full research papers that describe novel technical contributions involving the Java platform.
* Short research papers that describe promising new ideas that have less maturity than full papers.
* Industry and tool papers that present technical challenges and solutions for the Java platform in the context of deployed applications and systems.
Research papers will be judged on their relevance, novelty, technical rigor, and comparison with the state-of-the-art. For short research papers, more emphasis will be placed on novelty and the potential of the new idea than on technical rigor and experimental results. Industry and tool papers will be judged on their relevance, usefulness, and results. Suitability for demonstration and availability will also be considered for tool papers.
All accepted papers will appear in the proceedings, which will be available from the ACM Digital Library. Full research papers will be allowed up to 12 pages in the proceedings, and short research, industry, and tool papers will be allowed up to 6 pages. All papers must conform to the ACM SIGPLAN style ‘sigplanconf.cls’ with a font size of 9 point (option ’9pt’). More information on submission guidelines is available from the PPPJ’14 web site. Questions about paper topics and submission format can be directed to the PC chair, Bruce Childers, email@example.com.

The conference proceedings will be published as part of the ACM International Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library. At least one author of each accepted paper is required to attend the conference and present the paper. The authors of the best papers presented at PPPJ’14 will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers to a journal special issue.
