Call For Papers

Call for Papers: RUMPLE’16

1st Workshop on ReUsable and Modular
Programming Language Ecosystems

Co-located with SPLASH
Oct/Nov, 2016, Amsterdam, Netherlands

The RUMPLE workshop is a venue for discussing modular approaches to
programming language implementations, extensible virtual machine
architectures, as well as reusable runtime components such as dynamic
compilers, interpreters, or garbage collectors. The main goal of the workshop
is to bring together researchers and practitioners, and facilitate the
sharing of experiences and ideas.

Relevant topics include, but are definitely not limited to, the following:

- Extensible VM design (compiler- or interpreter-based VMs)
- Reusable implementation of runtime components (e.g. interpreters, garbage
collectors, intermediate representations)
- Static and dynamic compiler techniques for different languages
- Multi-language runtimes and mechanisms for cross-language interoperability
between different languages
- Tooling support for different languages (e.g. debugging, profiling, etc.)
- Modular language implementations that use existing frameworks and systems
- Case studies of existing language implementations, virtual machines, and
runtime components (e.g. design choices, tradeoffs, etc.)
- New research ideas on how we want to build languages in the future.

Workshop Format and Submissions

This workshop welcomes the presentation and discussion of new ideas and
emerging problems that give a chance for interaction and exchange.
We accept presentation proposals in the form of extended abstracts (1-4
pages). Accepted abstracts will be published on the workshop's website before
the workshop date.

Submissions should use the ACM SIGPLAN Conference Format, 10 point font,
using the font family Times New Roman and numeric citation style. All
submissions should be in PDF format.

Please submit abstracts through
