International Symposium on Memory Management 2010
Toronto, June 5-6, 2010


ISMM is a forum for research in memory management. Areas of interest
include but are not limited to:

  * Memory allocation and deallocation
  * Garbage collection algorithms and implementations
  * Compiler analyses and tools to aid memory management
  * Empirical analysis of heap intensive programs
  * Formal analysis and verification of heap intensive programs
  * Memory system design and analysis
  * Verification of memory management algorithms
  * Development and evaluation of open source implementations

ISMM solicits full-length submissions covering new work on these
topics, as well as papers presenting confirmations or refutations of
important prior results. Surveys and comparative analyses that shed
new light on previously published techniques are also welcome.


General Chair: Jan Vitek, Purdue University
Program Chair: Doug Lea, State University of New York at Oswego

Abstracts due: February 3, 2010
Submissions due: February 9, 2010
Author response: March 9-11, 2010
Notification: March 19, 2010
Final copy: April 2, 2010
Conference: June 5-6, 2010


Submitted papers must be in English and formatted to print on US
Letter (8.5 x 11 inches) paper. Submissions must contain an abstract
and postal and electronic mailing addresses for at least one contact
author. All papers must be submitted on-line, preferably in Portable
Document Format (PDF), although the submission system will also accept
PostScript. Submissions should be no more than 10 pages (including
bibliography, excluding well marked appendices) in standard ACM
SIGPLAN conference format: two columns, nine-point font (or larger) on
a ten-point baseline (or larger), with columns 20pc (3.33in) wide and
54pc (9in) tall, and a column gutter of 2pc (0.33in). Detailed
formatting guidelines along with formatting templates or style files
for LaTeX are available at Papers that
violate these guidelines will be rejected by the program
chair. Program committee members are not required to read appendices,
and so a paper should be intelligible without them. All accepted
papers will appear in the published proceedings.

Double-blind reviewing

Authors are anonymous to the reviewers, just as reviewers are
anonymous to the authors. Authors must take reasonable efforts not to
disclose their identities to reviewers: Do not give your names nor
mention your institution, research group or project name. Where
necessary for flow, a stand-in name such as "XYZ", may be used, with a
footnote explaining that the actual name is withheld. Discuss your
own prior work in the third person, as you would other related
work. You may also provide reviewers with anonymous auxiliary material
such as proofs and source code via the PC Chair (see
below). Reviewers, for their part, will be honor-bound not to try to
discover authors' identities until their initial reviews are
complete. Authors' identities will be revealed at a later point in the
program committee's deliberations, but will be known only to the
program chair until that point.

Review committee

ISMM uses a separate Review Committee (RC) as part of the reviewing
process. The RC complements the Program Committee (PC) by providing
expert reviews. The same reviewing standards apply to the RC as for
the PC. However, RC members review only a few papers each, and do not
participate in the PC meeting. The use of the RC increases the breadth
and depth of the reviewer pool.


The rebuttal process will occur in early March 2010, and will give the
authors opportunity to respond succinctly to factual errors in
reviews, before the program committee meets to make its decisions. The
committee may, but need not, respond to rebuttals or revise reviews at
or after the committee meeting.

Auxiliary Material

Authors may provide the PC Chair with a URL for upload of auxiliary
material. The URL itself will not be seen by reviewers. The authors
may reference such material in their paper, noting that the material
has been made available to the PC Chair. This facility may be used by
authors to provide reviewers with useful information beyond the scope
of the submitted paper, such as technical reports, proofs, and source
code, without disclosing the authors' identity. Authors are obliged
to make reasonable efforts to make all auxiliary material suitably
anonymous. Authors are reminded that reviewers are under no obligation
to read any auxiliary material. Papers accompanied by or based on
open-source implementations are especially welcome. However, if the
authors are primary contributors to such a project, they should
provide source URLs separately to the Program Chair for validation,
and not list them in the submission proper.


The proceedings will be published by the ACM. Authors should read the
ACM Author Guidelines and related information. Authors of accepted
papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the
conference. For additional information please feel free to contact the
Program Chair.
