Dear colleague

We'd like to invite you to join us at the International Symposium on
Memory Management 1998, immediately preceding OOPSLA in Vacouver,
17-19 October 1998.

If you read the GC mailing list you should be interested in this meeting!

As well as the formal programme there will be several informal
sessions, led (we hope) by you.

Details below.

   International Symposium on Memory Management 1998

	Sat 17th - Mon 19th October 1998, Vancouver

		Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN
		Co-located with OOPSLA

		Full details at:


The International Symposium on Memory Management is a forum for
research in memory management, especially garbage collection and
dynamic storage allocators. Areas of interest include but are not
limited to: garbage collection, dynamic storage allocation, storage
managemeent implementation techniques and their interactions with
language and OS implementation, and empirical studies of programs'
memory allocation and referencing behavior.
