   16th International Conference on Managed Programming
                        Languages & Runtimes

                    Co-located with SPLASH 2019
                  Athens, Greece, Oct 20-25, 2019


The 16th International Conference on Managed Programming Languages &
Runtimes (MPLR, formerly ManLang) is a premier forum for presenting
and discussing novel results in all aspects of managed programming
languages and runtime systems, which serve as building blocks for some
of the most important computing systems around, ranging from
small-scale (embedded and real-time systems) to large-scale
(cloud-computing and big-data platforms) and anything in between
(mobile, IoT, and wearable applications).

This year, MPLR is co-located with SPLASH 2019 and sponsored by ACM.

# Topics

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
 * Languages and Compilers
    - Managed languages (e.g., Java, Scala, JavaScript, Python, Ruby,
C#, F#, Clojure, Groovy, Kotlin, R, Smalltalk, Racket, Rust, Go, etc.)
    - Domain-specific languages
    - Language design
    - Compilers and interpreters
    - Type systems and program logics
    - Language interoperability
    - Parallelism, distribution, and concurrency
 * Virtual Machines
    - Managed runtime systems (e.g., JVM, Dalvik VM, Android Runtime
(ART), LLVM, .NET CLR, RPython, etc.)
    - VM design and optimization
    - VMs for mobile and embedded devices
    - VMs for real-time applications
    - Memory management
    - Hardware/software co-design
 * Techniques, Tools, and Applications
    - Static and dynamic program analysis
    - Testing and debugging
    - Refactoring
    - Program understanding
    - Program synthesis
    - Security and privacy
    - Performance analysis and monitoring
    - Compiler and program verification

# Submission Categories

MPLR accepts four types of submissions:

 1. Regular research papers, which describe novel contributions
involving managed language platforms (up to 12 pages excluding
bibliography and appendix). Research papers will be evaluated based on
their relevance, novelty, technical rigor, and contribution to the

 2. Work-in-progress research papers, which describe promising new
ideas but yet have less maturity than full papers (up to 6 pages
excluding bibliography and appendix). When evaluating work-in-progress
papers, more emphasis will be placed on novelty and the potential of
the new ideas than on technical rigor and experimental results.

 3. Industry and tool papers, which present technical challenges and
solutions for managed language platforms in the context of deployed
applications and systems (up to 6 pages excluding bibliography and
appendix). Industry and tool papers will be evaluated on their
relevance, usefulness, and results. Suitability for demonstration and
availability will also be considered for tool papers.

 4. Posters, which can be accompanied by a one-page abstract and will
be evaluated on similar criteria as Work-in-progress papers. Posters
can accompany any submission as a way to provide additional
demonstration and discussion opportunities.

MPLR 2019 submissions must conform to the ACM Policy on Prior
Publication and Simultaneous Submissions and to the SIGPLAN
Republication Policy.
