‹Programming› 2022
Mon 21 - Fri 25 March 2022 Porto, Portugal

To build a community and to foster an environment where participants can exchange ideas and experiences related to practical software development, ‹Programming› will host a number of workshops.

As 2022 will provide a dual-format (in-presence and online), the main goal of workshops is to promote social gathering and lively discussions amongst participants. This edition’s workshops will be able to combine the social experience of a physical event with the possibility of a higher inclusion of online events.

A workshop can be intended as a collaborative forum to exchange recent and/or preliminary results, to conduct intensive discussions on a particular topic, or to coordinate efforts between representatives of a technical community. They can also be regarded as a forum for a lively discussion of innovative ideas, progress, or practical experience on programming and applied software development in general for specific aspects, specific problems, or domain-specific needs.

As last year, for 2022, we would like to encourage organizers to be creative and experiment with all kinds of events including hallways discussions, academic parties besides the more traditional workshops. Possible types of workshops include a meeting like a Dagstuhl Seminar or Shonan meeting, a gathering for an international research project, a tool demo/tutorial, hands-on workshops in which participants experience one or several aspects of practical software development, social gathering around a particular topic and so on. Open meetings are preferable but closed ones could be accepted. We are flexible and welcome innovative social gatherings; if you have any ideas or questions, please contact the workshops co-chairs.

The duration of workshops is, in general, one day, but we encourage the submission of half-day workshop proposals on focused topics as well. In exceptional situations, e.g., for workshops that involve the actual practice of programming-related activities, workshop organizers can request a 2-day workshop slot. If desired, the workshop proceedings can be published in the ACM Digital Library.
