Artifact evaluation is over - see accepted artifacts here !
Authors of accepted PPoPP 2018 papers
are invited to formally submit their supporting materials to the
Artifact Evaluation process (AE).
AE is run by a separate committee
whose task is to reproduce (at least some) experiments
how submitted artifacts support the work described in the
papers. This submission is voluntary and will not
influence the final decision regarding the papers.
The papers that successfully go through AE will receive
a set of ACM badges of approval
printed on the papers themselves and available as meta information
in the ACM Digital Library.
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 chairs and the steering committee or post your question
to our LinkedIn group.
How to submit
Please prepare your artifacts for submission using the following guide.
Then, register your submission at the PPoPP AE 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
Please, do not forget to provide a list of hardware, software, benchmark and data set dependencies in your artifact abstract -
this is essential to find appropriate evaluators!
Note that we collaborate with ACM
to unify packing and sharing of artifacts as reusable and customizable components
with a unified JSON API with the help of the Collective Knowledge framework
(see ACM announcement).
You are not obliged to use CK and can write your own scripts to prepare and run experiments.
However if you are interested to try it,
offers free help to convert your workflows
to the CK format while reusing already existing artifacts
(for example, see reusable AI artifacts)
for your submission.
Feel free to contact Grigori Fursin
as soon as possible for more details.
Please, check out a distinguished artifact from the joint PPoPP/CGO'17 AE
which was shared using the CK framework:
PDF with appendix.
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. The highest ranked artifacts will receive prizes.
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
AE chairs and/or steering committee!
