Recent years have seen a resurgence of interest in multi-language
tools and intermediate languages, and in interoperability between
programs and components written in different programming
languages. Shared infrastructure such as code generators, analysis
tools and garbage collectors can greatly ease the task of producing a
high-quality implementation of a new programming language, whilst
being able to interoperate easily with code written in existing
languages is essential for such an implementation to be useful in
practice. This workshop aims to bring together researchers and
developers working on multi-language integration. Contributions are
welcome on topics including, but not limited to:

* Compilation of high level languages to common executable formats
    such as Sun's Java Virtual Machine, the DRA's ANDF or Microsoft's
    .NET Common Language Runtime.

* Defining and using bindings for component middleware such as OMG's
    CORBA or Microsoft's COM.

* Language constructs to support interoperability between different
    languages, particularly from different paradigms (e.g. OO/functional).

* Multi-language backends for compilation and/or analysis
    (e.g. MLRISC, FLINT, C--, TAL, SUIF).

* Type theoretic and semantic foundations for multi-language work.

* Multi-language development environments and tools (e.g. debuggers,

Submissions may address any programming paradigm. Experience papers
which describe the use of multiple languages in application
development are also welcome. Authors unsure of the appropriateness of
a potential submission should email the PC chair (

Notification of acceptance 9th July 2001
Final version due 10th August 2001


Papers should be at most 14 pages and should be submitted in
Ghostscript-compatible PostScript or PDF format and be printable on
both US letter and A4 paper. Authors are strongly encouraged to use
ENTCS style files (see Papers should

Submissions should not overlap significantly with work which has
already been published or submitted to any other conference or
journal. An informal proceedings will be published as a technical
report and distributed at the workshop. It is intended that a final
proceedings will be published in a volume of ENTCS.
