Call For Papers

============================================================================
Call for Papers: MoreVMs’17

1st Workshop on
Modern Language Runtimes, Ecosystems, and VMs

Co-located with (Programming) 2017
April, 2017, Brussels, Belgium

http://2017.programming-conference.org/track/MoreVMs-2017-papers
============================================================================

The MoreVMs'17 workshop aims bring together programmers from industry and
academy to discuss the design, implementation, and usage of modern languages
and runtimes. This includes aspects such as reuse of language runtimes, modular
implementation, or design and compilation strategies to target existing
runtimes.

The main goals of the workshop is to bring together both researchers and
practitioners and facilitate effective sharing of their respective experiences
and ideas on how languages and runtimes are utilized and where they need to
improve further. We welcome presentation proposals in the form of extended
abstracts discussing experiences, work-in-progress, as well as future visions
from the academic as well as industrial perspective. Relevant topics include,
but are definitely not limited to, the following:

- extensible VM design (compiler- or interpreter-based VMs)
- reusable runtime components (e.g. interpreters, garbage collectors,
intermediate representations)
- static and dynamic compiler techniques
- techniques for compilation to high-level languages such as JavaScript
- runtimes and mechanisms for interoperability between languages
- tooling support (e.g. debugging, profiling, etc.)
- programming language development environments and virtual machines
- case studies of existing language implementations, virtual machines, and
runtime components (e.g. design choices, tradeoffs, etc.)
- language implementation challenges and trade-offs (e.g. performance, completeness, etc.)
- surveys and applications usage reports to understand runtime usage in the wild
- surveys on frameworks and their impact on runtime usage
- 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 to facilitate interaction among workshop participants and
exchange of ideas. We accept presentation proposals in the form of extended
abstracts (1-2 pages). Accepted abstracts will be published on the workshop's
website before the workshop date.

For preparing your abstract, please use the provided author kit:
https://github.com/smarr/morevms17-author-kit. It is based on the ACM SIGPLAN
Conference Format with 10 point font, and includes a Creative Commons License,
which will allow us to publish the abstract on the workshop web site.

Please submit abstracts through http://ssw.jku.at/morevms17/
