ACM logo

October 27-28, 2013
Indianapolis, IN, USA

(collocated with SPLASH 2013, incl. OOPSLA 2013 and SLE 2013)

Sponsored by SIGPLAN. GPCE'13 proceedings published by ACM.

Important dates

  • Submission of tech talk proposals: July 2013
  • Author notification: August 2013


Tech talks will be about an hour in length; longer than a regular conference talk, but shorter than the customary half or full day tutorials at other conferences. In contrast to research talks, tech talks do not have to present original new research material, but should rather focus on putting research into perspective for a broader audience. In contrast to longer tutorials, these talks cannot be very interactive or rely on the audience participating by using tools. Rather, they should aim to be 'keynote' style presentations, emphasizing the essence (but not avoiding depth).

They can be thought of as distilled tutorials that provide a focused and in-depth treatment of specific research results considered relevant to the GPCE community.

Moreover, the tech talks are included in the conference registration and are not charged separately. We hope that this will ensure high impact of the tech talks.


If you are interested in presenting a tech talk at GPCE, please send a short proposal (about two pages) to the conference chairs ( by July 2013.

The proposal should consist of

  1. title
  2. name of presenter
  3. abstract (max. 250 words)
  4. biography (max. 250 words)
  5. relevance for GPCE audience (max. 250 words)
  6. outline of tech talk (max. 1 page)

Items 1 to 4 will be used on the website.

We will make a selection of tech talks based on relevance (topic-wise) for the conference and expected interest in the tech talk. Tech talk proposers will be notified of the decision by August 2013.
