24th ACM International Systems and Software Product Line Conference (SPLC 2020)

A forum for researchers, practitioners and educators

April 2, 2020. Revised contributions deadlines announcement.

Dear SPLC community,

We are glad to announce that the Emergency Response Committee (ERC) of SPLC has revised the deadlines for all the submission tracks to account for the COVID-19 emergency. Our driving goal was to be empathetic with the needs and expectations of all the stakeholders of SPLC. We thank all the members for their effort.

We encourage each of you to keep working on your contributions.

While the conference is still six months away, the organization team is preparing the different scenarios that might apply in mid-October (e.g. presence and/or virtual conference). As the situation evolves, we will inform everybody in due course on any decisions taken through our different communication channels.

Hope to see you all in October either physically or virtually!

David Benavides as SPLC SC chair and Roberto E. Lopez-Herrejon as SPLC 2020 General Chair, on behalf of the SPLC ERC
