                 Call For Papers for ICOOOLPS 2013 
    (8th Workshop on Implementation, Compilation, Optimization of 
         Object-Oriented Languages, Programs and Systems), 

     co-located with ECOOP/ECSA/ECMFA, July 2013, Montpellier, France.

            In cooperation with ACM SIGPLAN and ACM SIGSOFT

implementation, optimization, runtime, virtual machines, program analysis, garbage collection, 
resources, Object-Oriented languages, prototypes.

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 OO and OO-like 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.

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 models 
* runtime systems:
- compilers
- linkers 
- virtual machines 
- garbage collectors 
* optimizations: 
- 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. 
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
