Call for Papers: MoreVMs'18

2nd Workshop on
Modern Language Runtimes, and Ecosystems

Co-located with (Programming)'18
April 9th, 2018, Nice, France

The MoreVMs'18 workshop aims to bring together industrial and academic
programmers to discuss the design, implementation, and usage of modern
languages and runtimes. This includes aspects such as reuse of language
runtimes, modular implementation, language design and compilation

The workshop aims to enable a diverse discussion on how languages and runtimes
are currently being 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 either an
academic or industrial perspective.

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

- Extensible VM design (compiler- or interpreter-based VMs)
- Reusable components (e.g. interpreters, garbage collectors, ...)
- Static and dynamic compilation techniques
- Techniques for targeting high-level languages such as JavaScript
- Interoperability between languages
- Tooling support (e.g. debugging, profiling, etc.)
- Programming language development environments
- Case studies of existing language implementation approaches
- Language implementation challenges and trade-offs
- Surveys and usage reports to understand usage in the wild
- Ideas for more predictable performance
- Ideas for how VMs could take advantage of new hardware features
- Ideas for how we should build languages in the future

Workshop Format and Submissions

Submissions should use the ACM Conference acmart Format with the ‘sigconf’
option with a font size of 10 point and the font family Times New Roman. All
submissions should be in PDF format. If you use LaTeX or Word, please use the
provided ACM acmart templates. Otherwise, please follow the ACM author

If you are formatting your paper using LaTeX, you will need to set the 10pt
option in the \documentclass command. If you are formatting your paper using
Word, you may wish to use the provided Word template that supports this font
size. Please include page numbers in your submission for review using the LaTeX
command \settopmatter{printfolios=true} (see examples in template).

Please also ensure that your submission is legible when printed on a black and
white printer. In particular, please check that colors remain distinct and font
sizes are legible.

Submission details will be on:
