*** Workshop on Self-sustaining Systems (S3) 2010 ***

September 27-28, 2010
The University of Tokyo, Japan

In cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN

=== Call for papers ===

The Workshop on Self-sustaining Systems (S3) is a forum for discussion 
of topics relating to computer systems and languages that are able to 
bootstrap, implement, modify, and maintain themselves. One property of 
these systems is that their implementation is based on small but 
powerful abstractions; examples include (amongst others) 
Squeak/Smalltalk, COLA, Klein/Self, PyPy/Python, Rubinius/Ruby, and 
Lisp. Such systems are the engines of their own replacement, giving 
researchers and developers great power to experiment with, and explore 
future directions from within, their own small language kernels.

S3 will be take place September 27-28, 2010 at The University of Tokyo, 
Japan. It is an exciting opportunity for researchers and practitioners 
interested in self-sustaining systems to meet and share their knowledge, 
experience, and ideas for future research and development.

--- Submissions and proceedings ---

S3 invites submissions of high-quality papers reporting original 
research, or describing innovative contributions to, or experience with, 
self-sustaining systems, their implementation, and their application. 
Papers that depart significantly from established ideas and practices 
are particularly welcome.

Submissions must not have been published previously and must not be 
under review for any another refereed event or publication. The program 
committee will evaluate each contributed paper based on its relevance, 
significance, clarity, and originality. Revised papers will be published 
as post-proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair at 
http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=s32010 in PDF format. 
Submissions must be written in English (the official language of the 
workshop) and must not exceed 10 pages. They should use the ACM SIGPLAN 
10 point format, templates for which are available at
