Artifact evaluation is finished - see accepted artifacts here !
Authors of accepted PACT 2016 papers
are invited to formally submit their supporting materials to the
Evaluation process. The Artifact Evaluation process
is run by a separate committee
whose task is to reproduce (at least some) experiments
how the artifacts support the work described in the
papers. This submission is voluntary and will not
influence the final decision regarding the papers.
Papers that successfully go through the Artifact Evaluation
process will receive a seal of approval printed
on the papers themselves. Authors of such papers will have an option
to include their Artifact Appendix to the final paper (up to 2 pages).
Authors are also encouraged (though not obliged) to make these
materials publicly available upon publication of the
proceedings, by including them as "source materials"
in the Digital Library. The authors of the highest ranked
artifact will also receive a special prize!
If you have any questions, please check AE FAQs
and do not hesitate to contact AE chairs!
How to submit
Please prepare your artifacts for submission using the following guide.
Then, register your submission at the EasyChair website
- you will be asked to submit your paper title, author list, artifact abstract, pdf of your paper with an appendix describing how to access
and validate your artifacts, and possible conflicts of interests with
Your artifacts will be reviewed according to the following guidelines.
Artifacts receiving "met expectations" or above score will pass evaluation and will receive
a stamp of approval.
We consider Artifact Evaluation as a continuous learning curve -
our eventual goal is to develop a common methodology for experiment sharing
and evaluation in computer system's research.
Therefore, if you have questions, comments and suggestions
on how to improve artifact submission, reviewing, customization
and reuse, please do not hesitate to get in touch with the AE steering committee!
