                                                            CALL FOR PAPERS

                                        Workshop on Binary Translation - 2001

                        In Conjunction with the International Conference on
                Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (PACT'2001)
                Barcelona, Catalunya, Spain PACT'2001: September 8-12, 2001



WBT-2001 seeks to continue the high level of interest in the first two
Workshops on Binary Translation held with PACT'99 and PACT'2000. There are
many academic and industrial projects on binary translation and WBT-2001
will provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to meet, thus
stimulating the exchange of ideas and experiences with binary translation,
and opening new avenues of research. WBT-2001 seeks submissions describing
novel ideas or experience with building binary translation systems. There
will be a limited number of talks in order to allow the audience to
