                                                        CALL FOR PAPERS

                                International Workshop on Memory Management
                                                            St Malo, France
                                                  September 17th-19th 1992

High level languages, like Lisp, ML, Scheme, Smalltalk, Modula-3, C++,
Prolog, constraint languages, etc. rely heavily on a very important
feature of their runtime systems, namely Memory Management (MM) of
dynamically allocated storage. Techniques, such as static program
analysis, are also designed to improve the efficiency of implementations.
Both static and dynamic MM, depend on the language they have been designed
for. However, the problems which are handled and solved by MM are very
general and it is worth looking at them as fundamental problems with
general solutions.
          This three-day workshop offers an opportunity to bring together
communities of researchers working on a common problem but with different
backgrounds and approaches. For example, the workshop could be a good
place for a spirited discussion between garbage collection "purists",
attached to the specificities of a language and "pragmatists", who con-
sider the environment as being as important as the language itself.
          Both original research papers and survey papers on practical and
theoretical approaches to MM are welcome. A non-exclusive list of topics
of interest follows :

            Garbage Collection (GC) Incremental GC
            Parallel, real-time GC Compile time GC
            Conservative GC Correctness and analysis
            Environment structures Register allocation
            Static / Dynamic MM Explicit / Implicit MM
            Backtracking mechanism and MM Lazyness and MM
            Constraints and MM Persistance of objects and MM
            MM for parallel languages MM on distributed systems
            Hierarchical memories and MM Hardware and OS support for MM
            Integrating GC with existing environments
