7th International Workshop on Modern Language Runtimes, Ecosystems, and VMs: Deadline Jan 22 AoE

by smarr, Jan. 14, 2023

The 7th MoreVMs 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, compilation strategies, as
well as the interaction of modern languages and runtimes with operating systems
and modern hardware architectures.

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

The 7th MoreVMs 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, compilation strategies, as
well as the interaction of modern languages and runtimes with operating systems
and modern hardware architectures. By bringing together both researchers and
practitioners, the workshop aims to enable a diverse discussion on how
languages and runtimes are currently being utilized, and where they need to
improve further. MoreVMs welcomes early-stage work, emerging ideas, insightful
discussions of existing systems, as well as extended abstracts for publication
in the ACM DL. 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 developments environments
 - Interaction of virtual machines, operating systems, and computer architecture
 - Case studies of existing language implementation approaches
 - Language implementation challenges and trade-offs
 - Surveys and usage reports to understand usage in the wild
 - Survey and analysis of existing VMs and compilers
 - 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
-------------------------------

We welcome presentation proposals in the form of extended abstracts (2 to 4
pages long) and talk proposals (title and 400 words abstract) discussing new
techniques, insights, experiences, works-in-progress, as well as future
visions, from either an academic or industrial perspective. We will also
consider submissions in form of blog posts. These can be submitted either as
HTML files or URL, as well as a brief (ca. 100 word) abstract for the workshop
website. The extended abstracts, talk proposals, and if the speakers wish,
their slides, will be published on the workshop’s website. Extended abstracts
can be published as part of the companion of ‹Programming›’23 in the ACM DL.
Publication in the ACM DL is conditional on the acceptance by the program
committee. Please note that MoreVMs’23 is organized as an academic workshop,
and as such, speakers will be required to register for the workshop.

Author Instructions
-------------------

Extended abstracts should use the ACM `acmart` format and be submitted as PDF:
https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template The format of your paper
must strictly adhere to the ACM Format.

LaTeX: Use version acmart v1.87 or newer. You can directly download the LaTeX
class file acmart and the BibTeX ACM Reference Format, which are also available
from CTAN. Please use the 'sigconf' style by using the following LaTeX class
configuration: \documentclass[sigconf,screen]{acmart}.

Word: Download the template from ACM format site. Please use the 'sigconf'
style by selecting the right 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.

Talk proposals can be plain text, and blog posts can be submitted as HTML or simply a URL to the post.
