                                                        CALL FOR PAPERS

ACM SIGPLAN 2004 Workshop on Interpreters, Virtual Machines and Emulators
                                                    Monday June 7th, 2004
                                                          Washington, DC

                                            In Conjunction with PLDI'04

Following a highly successful IVME 2003 that exceeded all
expectations, we are pleased to announce that IVME 2004 will again be
co-located with PLDI.

IVME is a unique forum that brings together researchers and
practitioners on a range of related topics stretching from
interpreters to virtual machines (for programming language
implementation) to emulators and machine simulators. Within this
range of themes, we are interested in the breadth of research topics
from "deep" papers describing a powerful new idea or algorithm in
detail to "broad" papers describing innovative new systems and

The inaugural IVME 2003 achieved a balanced mix of these topics. Of the
41 original submissions, 8 high-quality papers were accepted (an
acceptance rate lower than PLDI itself). We hope to make IVME 2004
just as successful.

Papers are solicited in areas including, but not limited to, the

          * Interpreter design and optimization
          * Portable (retargetable) interpreters
          * Interpreters for very high-level languages
          * Interpreters for resource-constrained devices and embedded

          * Virtual machine (for programming language implementation) design
              and optimization
          * Dynamic compilation techniques
          * Virtual machines for Trusted Computing
          * Virtual machines for code compression

          * Machine emulators
          * Software-based processor/architecture simulators
          * Binary translation frameworks

          * Mixed-mode interpretive/compiled systems

          * Simplicity, maintainability and correctness issues
          * Software engineering aspects (e.g. cost, time to market)
          * Experience reports

In principle, any topic relating to the design or implementation of
interpreter-based or dynamically compiled systems is suitable for this
workshop. If there is any doubt about the suitability of a given
topic for the workshop, please contact the program chair for

Submission Information

Please submit your paper electronically via the workshop web site.
The final versions of papers will be formatted according the ACM
proceedings format and will be no longer than 8 pages in this
format. This 8 pages includes everything (i.e., it is the total length
of the paper). Templates for ACM format are available for Latex, Word
Perfect, and Microsoft Word are located at Submitted versions
of papers do not have to use this format, but should not be
excessively long.

Submissions should be in PDF or Postscript (preferred) that is
interpretable by Ghostscript and printable on US Letter and A4 sized
paper. Papers already being reviewed by another conference or workshop
are not eligible. If a closely related paper has been submitted to a
journal, the authors must notify the program chair.

The deadline for submissions is March 12th 2004. Please visit the web
site for submission instructions.
