Mon 9 - Thu 12 April 2018 Nice, France

The 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 and compilation strategies.

Call for Papers

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.

Topics of Interest

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

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).

The extended abstracts, and if the speakers wish, their slides, will be published on the workshop’s web site. Alternatively, the abstracts can be published as part of the companion publication of Programming’18 in the ACM DL.
