The ICOOOLPS workshop series brings together researchers and practitioners working in the field of language implementation and optimization.

The goal of the workshop is to discuss emerging problems and research directions as well as new solutions to classic performance challenges. The topics of interest for the workshop include techniques for the implementation and optimization of a wide range of languages including but not limited to object-oriented ones. Furthermore, virtual machines, meta-compilation techniques or language-agnostic approaches are welcome, too.

Call for Contributions

The ICOOOLPS workshop series brings together researchers and practitioners working in the field of language implementation and optimization (even beyond the historical OO background of the workshop). The goal of the workshop is to discuss emerging problems and research directions, as well as new solutions and techniques.

We hope to provide a space for participation and discussion and in particular to discuss your work in progress. That’s why we’ll have two additional submission categories for position papers and talks. We also accept talk proposals for papers that have appeared at some other past conference but didn’t receive much discussion there due to the conference being cancelled or virtual because of the Covid situation.

A non-exclusive list of topics of interest for this workshop is:

  • Implementation and optimization of fundamental languages features (from automatic memory management to metaprogramming)
  • Runtime systems technology (libraries, virtual machines)
  • Compilation tools, techniques, and libraries for language interoperability
  • Static, adaptive, and speculative optimizations and compiler techniques
  • Meta-compilation techniques and language-agnostic approaches for the efficient implementation of languages
  • Compilers (intermediate representations, offline and online optimizations,…)
  • Empirical studies on language usage, benchmark design, and benchmarking methodology
  • Resource-sensitive systems (real-time, low power, mobile, cloud)
  • Power-efficient code and compiler techniques for generating power-efficient code
  • Studies on design choices and tradeoffs (dynamic vs. static compilation, heuristics vs. programmer input, …)
  • Tooling support, debuggability and observability of languages as well as their implementations

Workshop Format

The workshop welcomes the presentation and discussion of new ideas and emerging problems. We aim to provide an environment to present and discuss your work at different stages of maturity. Therefore, we provide three submission categories:

  • Full papers (up to 12 pages), which will be included in the proceedings;
  • Position papers (up to 4 pages), for work in progress, ideas in early stages;
  • Quick talks about entirely new ideas/project and/or demos.

Please note that option (1) features a different submission deadline than the rest and will include a short rebuttal period, in which authors will be able to answer reviewers’ comments.

Submission

To submit a paper please use the official “ACM Master article template”, which can be obtained from the ACM Proceedings Template pages. ICOOOLPS features a light-weight double-blind review process. Authors should omit their names in the submission. Use the sigconf option as well as review and anonymous, i.e., place the following at the start of the latex document: \documentclass[sigconf,review,anonymous]{acmart}.
