Call for Tutorial Proposals

Have you considered presenting a tutorial at SPLC 2018? Tutorials provide a valuable opportunity for conference participants to expand their product line knowledge and skills.

The overall goal is to strengthen the important aspect of teaching in the SPL community. This year we are interested and only interested in extended abstract papers (2…
