Authors of accepted PPoPP 2018 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 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.
If you have any questions, please check AE FAQs
and do not hesitate to contact AE chair and the steering committee or post your question
to our LinkedIn group.
