The International Symposium on Memory Management is a forum for research in
memory management, in all its diversity.  Areas of interest include but are
not limited to: garbage collection, dynamic storage allocation, storage
management implementation techniques and their interactions with languages and
operating systems, and empirical studies of programs' memory allocation and
referencing behavior.  The technical program for ISMM 2000 will consist of
invited lectures, and presentations of both short and full-length refereed

ISMM 2000 continues the tradition of the successful conference series
established with the International Workshops on Memory Management held in 1992
(St. Malo, France) and 1995 (Kinross, Scotland), and the inaugural ISMM in
1998 (Vancouver, Canada).  Proceedings of the IWMM conferences are available
from Springer-Verlag (Lecture Notes in Computer Science no. 637 and no. 986),
while the ISMM'98 proceedings were published by the Association for Computing
Machinery (ACM).  The 2000 Symposium Proceedings will also be published by the

ISMM solicits both short and full-length papers on all areas of memory
management.  Survey papers that present an aspect on memory management with a
new coherence are also welcome.  Submissions will be read by the program
committee and designated reviewers and judged on scientific merit, innovation,
readability and relevance.  Submitted papers must not substantially overlap
with papers that have already been published or that are simultaneously
submitted to a journal or conference with refereed proceedings.  Authors
should point out any substantial overlap with their previously published work.

Full submissions should be at most 12 pages excluding bibliography and
well-marked appendices, using at least 11-point font and reasonable margins
for US Letter paper.  Program committee members are not required to read
appendices, and so a paper should be intelligible without them.

Short papers (of no more than 6 pages) will be considered for abbreviated
presentation.  A short paper may present results of work in progress but which
are not as developed as those expected in a full paper: for example, it might
offer new ideas that are intriguing but not "fully baked", or present useful
and solid measurements.  All accepted papers (both short and full) will appear
in the published proceedings.

Submitted papers must be in English and formatted to print on US Letter (8.5 x
11 inches) paper.  Submissions must contain an abstract and postal and
electronic mailing addresses for at least one contact author.  All papers must
be submitted on-line, preferably in Portable Document Format (PDF), although
portable PostScript will also be accepted.  Instructions for on-line
submission of papers will become available on the ISMM 2000 web-site as the
deadline approaches.  On-line submission of papers must occur no later than
5pm US Eastern Daylight Time (-4 hours UT), May 1, 2000.

Authors will be notified of the acceptance or rejection of their papers by
June 26, 2000.  Final versions of accepted papers must be received in
camera-ready form by July 24, 2000.  The proceedings will be published by ACM.
Authors should read the ACM Author Guidelines and related information.

All publicity materials for the conference, including a copy of this call for
papers, instructions for electronic submission, an advance program, and
registration information, will be made available at the ISMM 2000 Conference
Web Site (http://www.cs.ukc.ac.uk/events/ismm2000).
