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.
The VMIL workshop is a forum for researchers and cutting-edge practitioners in language virtual machines, the intermediate languages they use, and related issues.
Call for Papers
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.
