‹Programming› 2022
Mon 21 - Fri 25 March 2022 Porto, Portugal

Following five previous editions, the MoreVMs’22 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.

Call for Talks and Papers

Following five previous editions, the MoreVMs’22 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, 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 development 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
  • 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.

New this year, 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 also can be published as part of the companion of ‹Programming›’22 in the ACM DL. Publication in the ACM DL is conditional on the acceptance by the program committee.

Please note that MoreVMs’22 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 v1.77 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 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 proposal can be plain text, and blog posts can be submitted as HTML or simply a URL to the post.
