AOSD deadline approaching: Perspectives on Modularity

AOSD 2011

The first submission deadline for AOSD 2011 is approaching rapidly. You have until July 1st to get your paper ready. It turns out that AOSD 2011 is going to be in beautiful Pernambuco, Brazil. It’s certainly going to be a great event. I hope to see you all there.

This year’s topic is Perspectives on Modularity, which means that AOSD explicitly invites papers that try to address modularity issues in general, the approach does not have to be restricted to what people frequently call “aspect-oriented programming”. The goal is to broaden the scope and to look for solutions beyond the usual paradigmn of pointcuts and advice.

Just to clarify, AOSD 2011 is going to have two submission deadlines:

First Round

Research paper submission: Thursday, July 1st, 2010 (23:59 Samoan time)
Acceptance notification: Monday, September 6th, 2010 (23:59 Samoan time)

Second Round

Research paper submission: Friday, October 1st, 2010 (23:59 Samoan time)
Acceptance notification: Friday, December 10th, 2010 (23:59 Samoan time)
Camera-ready copy: Thursday, January 13th, 2011 (23:59 Samoan time)

You can submit to each round separately – both rounds are largely independent. However, if you submit to the first deadline then you have the advantage of (1) maybe having your paper accepted earlier or (2) if it gets rejected with a “resubmit again later” then you can re-submit an improved paper to the 2nd deadline. The goal is to enable a more journal-like review process that allows for correcting papers instead of having to reject them right away. So I invite you all to make good use of this additional opportunity and submit already at the first deadline.
