Here would be my abstract. Perhaps I will continue, though the running system is incomplete, at least the rational and design could be discussed.

>> ========================
>> Workshop on Meta-Programming Techniques and Reflection
>> Co-located with SPLASH 2017
>> October 22, 2017, Vancouver, Canada
>> Twitter @MetaAtSPLASH
>> http://2017.splashcon.org/track/meta-2017
>> The heterogeneity of mobile computing, cloud applications, multicore
>> architectures, and other systems leads to increasing complexity of software and
>> requires new approaches to programming languages and software engineering
>> tools. To manage the complexity, we require generic solutions that can be
>> adapted to specific application domains or use cases, making metaprogramming an
>> important topic of research once more. However, the challenges with
>> metaprogramming are still manifold. They start with fundamental issues such as
>> typing of reflective programs, continue with practical concerns such as
>> performance and tooling, and reach into the empirical field to understand how
>> metaprogramming is used and how it affects software maintainability. Thus,
>> while industry accepted metaprogramming on a wide scale with Ruby, Scala,
>> JavaScript and others, academia still needs to answer a wide range of questions
>> to bring it to the same level of convenience, tooling, and programming styles
>> to cope with the increasing complexity of software systems.
>> This workshop aims to explore meta-level technologies that help tackling the
>> heterogeneity, scalability and openness requirements of emerging computations
>> platforms.
>> ### Topics of Interest
>> The workshop is a venue for all approaches that embrace metaprogramming:
>> - from static to dynamic techniques
>> - reflection, meta-level architectures, staging, open language runtimes
>> applications to middleware, frameworks, and DSLs
>> - optimization techniques to minimize runtime overhead
>> - contract systems, or typing of reflective programs
>> reflection and metaobject protocols to enable tooling
>> - case studies and evaluation of such techniques, e.g., to build applications,
>> language extensions, or tools
>> - empirical evaluation of metaprogramming solutions
>> - security in reflective systems and capability-based designs
>> - meta-level architectures and reflective middleware for modern runtime
>> platforms (e.g. IoT, cyber-physical systems, mobile/cloud/grid computing, etc)
>> - surveys, conceptualization, and taxonomization of existing approaches
>> In short, we invite contributions to the workshop on a wide range of topics
>> related to design, implementation, and application of reflective APIs and
>> meta-programming techniques, as well as empirical studies and typing for such
>> systems and languages.
>> ### Workshop Format and Submissions
>> This workshop welcomes the presentation of new ideas and emerging problems as well as mature work as part of a mini-conference format. Furthermore, we plan interactive brainstorming and demonstration sessions between the formal presentations to enable an active exchange of ideas. Therefore, we seek the following kinds of publications:
>> • technical paper: max. 8 pages, excluding references
>> • position and work-in-progress paper: 1-4 pages, excluding references
>> • technology demos or a posters: 1-page abstract
>> All papers are to be submitted using the SIGPLAN acmart style. Please use the provided double-column Latex or Word templates.
>> For the submission, please use the submission system at: https://meta17.hotcrp.com/
>> The workshop technical papers will be published in the ACM DL, if not requested otherwise by the authors. Thus, they will be part of SPLASH workshop proceedings. Demos, posters, position and work-in-progress papers can be submitted on a second, later deadline to discuss the latest results and current work and won’t be included in the ACM DL proceedings.
>> ### Important Dates
>> Abstract Submission: 07 August 2017
>> Paper Submission: 20 August 2017
>> Author Notification: 06 September 2017
>> Position/WIP Paper Deadline: 08 September 2017
>> Camera Ready Deadline: 18 September 2017
>> Position/WIP Notification: 21 September 2017
>> ### Program Committee
