Workshop on Virtual Machines and Language Implementations (VMIL’22)

Co-located with SPLASH 2022
December 05, 2022, Auckland, New Zealand
Follow us on twitter @VMIL2022

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

VMIL 2022 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

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:
