Important Dates
Submission deadline: July 2, 2007
Notification of acceptance or rejection: July 23, 2007
Deadline for camera-ready copy: July 30, 2007
Conference begins: October 21, 2007

As one of few conferences to bring together active and enthusiastic participation from the academic, commercial and government domains, OOPSLA represents a key opportunity to expose the innovations and advancements suggested by your work. As a key view into the status of a dynamic field, the OOPSLA demos track highlights both individual and collective advancements from one year to the next. Academic research, commercial tools, and governmentinitiatives that compel progress in the software landscape are all welcome for the chance to influence the industry's influencers.

Demonstrations will be selected based on their potential to showcase technically sound and interesting activity in the tool, systems, language, and application development spaces. At a time when consumers of software and information technology question the relevance of an industry plagued by failure, particular consideration will be given to products and processes that abandon the status quo for the sake of doing it better. Partial results and works in progress are suitable for inclusion.

Submission Process
Demonstration proposals will be submitted electronically through the OOPSLA submission system. Submitted proposals may be modified up until to the submission deadline. They must be expressed as PostScript or PDF files, consist of two pages or less, and follow the ACM proceedings format for possible inclusion in the OOPSLA 2007 Conference Companion.

While proposals are due on July 2, 2007, the committee may read early proposals and work with the submitters to refine proposals that would benefit from additional information or small changes in content or format.

Submission Contents
Demonstration proposals must include:

  • a descriptive, catchy title
  • a short abstract summarizing the proposal
  • names, contact information, and short biographies of the individuals who will be conducting the demonstration. This should include a short justification of why these individuals are the best presenters for this demonstration.
  • a description of the demonstration in 250 words or less that highlights the innovations and addresses what a wide range of sophisticated OOPSLA attendees will find compelling in the demonstration
  • special needs or requirements to conduct the demonstration
