by smarr, Dec. 11, 2017

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
strategies.

============================================================================

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

strategies.

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
