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

A forum for researchers, practitioners and educators

April 20, 2020. SPLC 2020 Offers Virtual Option for Participants.

Dear SPLC community,

The Steering Committee and the Organizing Committee of SPLC 2020 acknowledge that many members of our community are concerned about attending the conference due to different personal or economic circumstances. We do hope to be able to have a physical conference. However, in order to address such concerns, we can confirm that, in any scenario, SPLC 2020 will provide the opportunity to participate virtually and with a reduced registration pricing that factors out local costs (e.g. coffee breaks, lunches, and banquet). We are currently working out the different alternatives in accordance with ACM’s guidelines on the matter.

So, please keep working on your contributions. Stay safe, healthy and strong.

Our best regards,

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