=== SCOPE ===

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, libraries, case studies, and experience reports. We invite papers on all these aspects. Topics include but are not limited to:

  • The Java Language and Systems
  • Software Engineering with Java
  • Mobile and Embedded Devices, e.g., Java Micro Edition, Android
  • Other Static, Dynamic, and Functional Languages for the JVM
  • VM Design and Optimization
  • Aspect-oriented Programming in Java
  • Modular Programming with Java
  • Model-driven Development in Java
  • Real-Time Systems in Java
  • Component- and Service-oriented Architectures
  • Java Frameworks and Tools
  • Java and Formal Methods
  • Security and Information Flow
  • Testing, Analysis, and Metrics
  • Java Concurrency
  • Parallelization of Java Programs
  • Applications in Science, Engineering, and Business
  • Java Practice and Experience Reports
  • Teaching Java


All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not currently under review.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 and present the paper.

Two types of paper submissions will be accepted:

  • research/industry/experience papers, as well as
  • tool demonstration papers.
Research/industry/experience papers must not exceed 10 pages, while tool demonstration papers must not exceed 4 pages. The title of tool demonstration papers should start with "Tool Demonstration:" in order to identify the paper type. Please number the pages.

The conference proceedings will be published as part of the ACM International Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library. We also 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, using 9-point font size. The author information containing the Latex and Word templates can be found here. Please apply the ACM Computing Classification categories and terms.
