ECOOP 2016
Sun 17 - Fri 22 July 2016 Rome, Italy

Welcome to the 11th Implementation, Compilation, Optimization of Object-Oriented Languages, Programs and Systems Workshop

The ICOOOLPS workshop series brings together researchers and practitioners working in the field of language implementation and optimization. The goal of the workshop is to discuss emerging problems and research directions as well as new solutions to classic performance challenges.

The topics of interest for the workshop include techniques for the implementation and optimization of a wide range of languages including but not limited to object-oriented ones. Furthermore, meta-compilation techniques or language-agnostic approaches are welcome, too.

This workshop welcomes the presentation and discussion of new ideas and emerging problems that give a chance for interaction and exchange. More mature work is welcome as part of a mini-conference format, too. We aim to interleave interactive brainstorming and demonstration sessions between the formal presentations to foster an active exchange of ideas.

Call for Papers

The ICOOOLPS workshop series brings together researchers and practitioners working in the field of language implementation and optimization. The goal of the workshop is to discuss emerging problems and research directions as well as new solutions to classic performance challenges.

The topics of interest for the workshop include techniques for the implementation and optimization of a wide range of languages including but not limited to object-oriented ones. Furthermore, meta-compilation techniques or language-agnostic approaches are welcome, too. A non-exclusive list of topics follows:

  • implementation and optimization of fundamental languages features (from automatic memory management to zero-overhead metaprogramming)
  • runtime systems technology (libraries, virtual machines)
  • static, adaptive, and speculative optimizations and compiler techniques
  • meta-compilation techniques and language-agnostic approaches for the efficient implementation of languages
  • compilers (intermediate representations, offline and online optimizations,…)
  • empirical studies on language usage, benchmark design, and benchmarking methodology
  • resource-sensitive systems (real-time, low power, mobile, cloud)
  • studies on design choices and tradeoffs (dynamic vs. static compilation, heuristics vs. programmer input,…)
  • tooling support, debuggability and observability of languages as well as their implementations

Workshop Format and Submissions

This workshop welcomes the presentation and discussion of new ideas and emerging problems that give a chance for interaction and exchange. More mature work is welcome as part of a mini-conference format, too. We aim to interleave interactive brainstorming and demonstration sessions between the formal presentations to foster an active exchange of ideas.

The workshop papers will be published in the ACM DL. Please use the ACM SIGPLAN template with a 10pt font size: http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/.

  • position and work-in-progress paper: 1-4 pages
  • technical paper: max. 10 pages
  • demos and posters: 1-page abstract

The page limits include references and appendixes. Note further that the upper page limit is a maximum and not a requirement.

For the submission, please use the HotCRP system: http://ssw.jku.at/icooolps/

Important Dates

  • abstract submission: April 18, 2016
  • paper submission: April 22, 2016
  • notification: May 13, 2016
  • all deadlines: Anywhere on Earth (AoE), i.e., GMT/UTC−12:00 hour
  • workshop: July 18th, 2016
