		       Third Annual Workshop on
		     Hardware Support for Objects
		   and Microarchitectures for Java

			Call for participation

		    In conjunction with ICCD 2001
			    Austin, Texas
			September 23, 2001

Java is an exciting new object-oriented technology. Hardware for
supporting objects and other features of Java such as multithreading,
dynamic linking and loading is the focus of this workshop. The impact
of Java's features on micro-architectural resources and issues in the
design of Java-specific architectures are interesting topics that
require the immediate attention of the research community. While Java
has become an important part of desktop applications, it is now being
used widely in high-end server markets, and making forays into low-end
embedded computing. Papers focussing on these emerging areas are
particularly invited.

The purpose of this workshop is to draw together researchers and
practitioners concerned with hardware support for objects and Java
implementations for a stimulating exchange of views.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): 

 - Microarchitectural features for object-oriented systems, especially
   their quantitative evaluation  
 - Measurements of hardware-level behavior of object-oriented systems 
 - Design of Java Virtual Machines: resource, power and performance
 - Tuning Java compilers and applications to efficiently utilize
   hardware resources 
 - Memory hierarchies for supporting objects 
 - Instruction set designs and enhancements to support objects and
   Java execution.  
 - Real Time/Energy Aware Garbage Collectors 
 - Constraint Aware Java Runtime 

The format of the workshop will include presentations of selected
papers and plenty of time for discussion. There is currently a
proposal for selected papers from the workshop to be published as a
book volume.
