8th International Workshop on
Implementation, Compilation, Optimization of
Object-Oriented Languages, Programs and Systems
July 2, Montpellier (France)
(Co-located with ECOOP/ECSA/ECMFA 2013)
Object-oriented languages, prototypes, implementation, optimization, runtime, virtual machines, program analysis, garbage collection, resources
Object-oriented languages and similar languages are pervasive and play a significant role in computer science and engineering life and sometime appear as ubiquitous and completely mature. However, despite a large number of works, there is still a clear need for solutions for efficient implementation and compilation of these languages in various application domains ranging from embedded and real-time systems to desktop systems.
The ICOOOLPS workshop series thus aims to address this crucial issue of optimization in OO and OO-like languages, programs and systems. It intends to do so by bringing together researchers and practitioners working in the field of object- oriented languages implementation and optimization. Its main goals are identifying fundamental bases and key current issues pertaining to the efficient implementation,compilation and optimization of such languages, and outlining future challenges and research directions.
Major topics of interest for ICOOOLPS comprize implementation of fundamental OO and OO-like features (inheritance, parametric types, memory management, objects, prototypes...), runtime systems (compilers, linkers, virtual machines, garbage collectors), optimizations (static or dynamic analyses, adaptive virtual machines), resource constraints (time for real-time systems, space or low-power for embedded systems) and relevant choices and tradeoffs (constant time vs. non- constant time mechanisms, separate compilation vs. global compilation, dynamic loading vs. global linking, dynamic checking vs. proof-carrying code...)..
Topics of interest for ICOOOLPS include but are not limited to:
- implementation of fundamental OOL features:
- inheritance (object layout, late binding, subtype test...)
- genericity (parametric types)
- memory management
- runtime systems:
- virtual machines
- garbage collectors
- static and dynamic analyses
- adaptive virtual machines
- resource constraints:
- real-time systems
- embedded systems (space, low power)...
- relevant choices and tradeoffs:
- constant time vs. non-constant time mechanisms
- separate compilation vs. global compilation
- dynamic loading vs. global linking
- dynamic checking vs. proof-carrying code
- annotations vs. no annotations
Authors are encouraged to submit papers describing ongoing work, papers describing research results, or position papers describing an open issue, likely solutions, drawbacks of current solutions or alternative solutions to well known problems. Sensational, daring, provocative ideas are welcome in such a workshop, as a good way to trigger fruitful discussions.
Reviewing is done by the PC members, each paper being reviewed by 3+ reviewers.
Accepted papers will be published to the ACM Digital Library and the workshop web site, unless the authors choose not to.
At least one author of the paper will be expected to attend the workshop.
Papers must be written in English, formatted according to ACM SIG Proceedings style, and their final version should range from 2 pages to 12 pages.
Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format via EasyChair at
