The deadline for submissions to the 7th workshop on Virtual Machines and 
Intermediate Languages (VMIL'13), to be held as part of SPLASH 2013 in 
Indianapolis, Indiana on October 28, 2013 was extended.

Submissions can be made through easychair and this short link:


until Aug. 25th.

Please pass this on to students, friends and colleagues who might be 

The VMIL workshop is a forum for research in virtual machines and 
intermediate languages. It is dedicated to identifying programming 
mechanisms and constructs that are currently realized as code 
transformations or implemented in libraries but should rather be 
supported at the VM level. Candidates for such mechanisms and constructs 
include modularity mechanisms, concurrency mechanisms, etc. Topics of 
interest include the investigation of which such mechanisms are 
worthwhile candidates for integration with the run-time environment, how 
said mechanisms can be elegantly (and reusably) expressed at the 
intermediate language level (e.g., in bytecode), how their 
implementations can be optimized, and how virtual machine architectures 
might be shaped to facilitate such implementation efforts. We especially 
welcome transformative ideas for virtual machines, including efficient 
support for game-changing IL mechanisms.

Topics of Interest
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  * Compilation-based and interpreter-based virtual machine designs with
    better support for these modularization mechanisms
  * Intermediate language constructs that better support these
    modularization mechanisms
  * Compilation techniques from high-level languages to enhanced
    intermediate languages
  * Optimization strategies for reduction of runtime overhead due to
    either compilation or interpretation
  * Improved techniques for fast evaluation of pointcuts and other
  * Use cases for deeper support in the virtual machines and
    intermediate languages
  * Advanced caching and memory management schemes in support of the

*Paper Categories*
In these key areas, we invite high-quality papers in the following two 

*Research and experience papers:* These submissions should describe work 
that advances the current state of the art in support of advanced 
separation of concerns techniques in virtual machines and intermediate 
languages. Experience papers that are of broader interest and describe 
insights gained from practical applications. The page limit for these 
submissions is 10 pages.

**Position papers:* These submissions present and defend the author's 
position on a topic related to the broader area of the workshop. The 
page limit for these submissions is 6 pages.

*Review Process*
The program committee will evaluate each paper based on its relevance, 
significance, clarity and originality. Each submission will be reviewed 
by at least three PC members.
**Paper Submission*
Papers should be submitted in PDF format. The results described must be 
unpublished and must not be under review for another workshop, 
conference or journal. Submissions must conform to ACM SIGPLAN format, 
use 10 pt font, include the ACM general terms and categories on the 
first page, and must not exceed the page limit of the category in which 
it is classified by the authors (including all text, figures, references 
and appendices). Submissions which do not conform to this will be 
rejected without reviews.
