Workshop on
Intermediate Representation Engineering for the Java Virtual Machine

Orlando, Florida, USA, July 22-25, 2001

An invited session at the 5th World Multi-Conference on Systemics,
Cybernetics and Informatics

The widespread use of Java[TM] technology has given increased
prominence to the study of portable intermediate representation
formats, particularly those similar to the stack-based design of the
Java Virtual Machine. While much attention has been given to
performance issues, it is also important to consider the design of JVM
bytecode in the light of its relationship to to its ancestors, such as
Forth, as well as more recent competitors such as the Microsoft .NET

This workshop seeks to explore issues relating to the design and
engineering of intermediate representations. We are interested in
position papers, work-in-progress reports and synopses of current

Topics of interest include:
  * design and analysis of intermediate representations
  * static and/or dynamic analysis of Java bytecode
  * stack-based abstract machines
  * optimisation strategies
  * alternative intermediate representations
  * benchmarking and test suites

Papers covering related areas and systems (such as Forth, Oberon, C#
etc.) will also be considered.

It is intended to run the event in true workshop style, so authors
should expect to discuss their proposals for 20-25 minutes in total,
allowing time for interaction and questions.


Authors should submit a 3-5 page extended abstract (Postscript or PDF
format) to, to arrive not later than April 19 2001.

Papers will be reviewed for relevance, and the authors will be contacted
with feedback within two weeks of the submission date.
