The widespread use of JavaTM technology has given increased prominence to the study of portable intermediate representation formats, particularly those similar to the stack-based design of the Java Virtual Machine. While much attention has been given to performance issues, it is also important to consider the design of JVM bytecode in the light of its relationship to to its ancestors, such as Forth, as well as more recent competitors such as the Microsoft .NET framework.
This workshop seeks to explore issues relating to the design and engineering of intermediate representations. We are interested in position papers, work-in-progress reports and synopses of current research.
Topics of interest include:
It is intended to run the event in true workshop style, so authors should expect to discuss their proposals for 20-25 minutes in total, allowing time for interaction and questions.
Papers will be reviewed for relevance, and the authors will be contacted with feedback within two weeks of the submission date.
