Sponsors and supporters
If you would like to sponsor this community service including prizes for highest ranked artifacts
and supporting open-source technology for collaborative, customizable and reproducible experimentation,
please get in touch with the AE steering committee!
Artifact evaluation is finished - see accepted artifacts (with awards) here !
Highest ranked artifact: "A Wait-free Queue as Fast as Fetch-and-Add", Chaoran Yang and John Mellor-Crummey (award by dividiti)
14 March 2016 (Monday, 18:00-18:30) - public AE dicussion (results, distinguished artifact award, issues, future work).
14-16 March 2016 - informal Collective Knowledge demos to solve various
encountered issues during Artifact Evaluation. CK enables collaborative and reproducible experimentation using shared
and realistic workloads combined with customizable autotuning and predictive analytics plugins.
Authors of accepted PPoPP 2016 papers
will be 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 assess
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 accepted papers are then encouraged to make these
materials publicly available upon publication of the
proceedings, by including them as "source materials"
in the Digital Library.
How to submit
Please prepare your artifacts for submission using the following guide.
Then, register your submission at the
joint PPoPP/CGO EasyChair website - you will be asked to submit your paper title
(do not forget to add PPoPP 2016 as prefix), 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 PPoPP PC members (
existing AE members
or anyone else.
Your artifacts will be reviewed based on the following guidelines.
Artifacts receiving "met expectations" or above score will pass evaluation and will receive
a stamp of approval. We are also arranging a prize for the highest ranked artifact.
We consider Artifact Evaluation as a continuous
learning curve - our eventual goal is to
collaboratively develop common experimental and artifact
sharing methodology for computer system's research. After running AE
at PPoPP 2015
for the first time, we received an overall positive
feedback from the community and, therefore, continue this experiment.
However, we also experienced various issues which you may check out in
presentation. Based on this experience and in
collaboration with ACM, we are preparing revised
submission and reviewing guidelines for PPoPP 2016.
If you have questions, comments and suggestions on how
to improve packaging, submission and reviewing process,
please do not hesitate to get in touch!
