Workshop on Virtual Machines and Language Implementations (VMIL’21)

Co-located with SPLASH 2021
October 17, 2021, Chicago, USA
Follow us on twitter @VMIL2021

The concept of virtual machines is pervasive in the design and implementation of programming systems. Virtual machines and the languages they implement are crucial in the specification, implementation and/or user-facing deployment of most programming technologies.

VMIL 2021 will have a hybrid model, though the details are yet to be fully worked out. You can keep up to date with the hybrid conference model on SPLASH's web site:

The workshop is intended to be welcoming to a wide range of topics and perspectives, covering all areas relevant to the workshop’s theme. Aspects of interest include, but are not limited to:

- design issues in VMs and IRs (e.g. IR design, VM modularity, polyglotism);
- compilation (static and dynamic compilation strategies, optimizations, data representations);
- memory management;
- concurrency (both internal and user-facing);
- tool support and related infrastructure (profiling, debugging, liveness, persistence);
- the experience of VM development (use of high-level languages, bootstrapping and self-hosting, reusability, portability, developer tooling, etc).
- empirical studies on related topics, such as usage patterns, the usability of languages or tools, experimental methodology, or benchmark design.

Submission Guidelines

We invite high-quality papers in the following two categories:

* **Research and experience papers:** These submissions should describe work that advances the current state of the art in the above or related areas. The suggested length of these submissions is 6–10 pages (maximum 10pp, excluding references).
* **Work-in-progress or position papers:** These papers should document ongoing efforts in an area of interest which have not yet yielded final results, and/or should present and defend the authors’ position on a topic related to the broad area of the workshop. The maximum length of these submissions is 6 pages, but we will consider shorter submissions (e.g. a well-written 2-page abstract).

For the first submission deadline, all paper types are considered for publication in the ACM Digital Library, except if the authors prefer not to be included. Publication of work-in-progress and position papers at VMIL is not intended to preclude later publication elsewhere.

Submissions will be judged on novelty, clarity, timeliness, relevance, and potential to stimulate discussion during the workshop.

For the second deadline, we will consider only work-in-progress and position papers. Abstracts do not have to be submitted before the deadline. These will not be published in the ACM DL, and will only appear on the website.

The address of the submission site is:
