1st MM-NET Workshop on
Analytical Techniques for Memory Management
University of Kent at Canterbury
15th May 2003
Call for papers and participation
There has been a recent increase in interest in applying analytical techniques
to the prediction and modelling of memory management, which is broadly defined
. garbage collection of main-memory, peristent and distributed systems;
. explicit dynamic memory allocation/de-allocation
. measurement of object demographics
. interactions with languages and operating systems
The UK's MM-NET (Memory Management Network) therefore proposes to hold a 1-day
workshop on analytical techniques for memory management on Thurs 15th May 2003
at the University of Kent at Canterbury (venue and time to be confirmed).
Topics of interest include but are not limited to
static prediction and bounding of memory usage;
garbage collection supported by compile-time techniques;
memory management models.
The keynote address will be given by Prof. Greg Morrisett, Cornell University.
Participation is welcomed from both academic and industrial sectors.
Registration is free for mm-net members and should be made through
Coffees and lunch will be provided. Some support for travel costs for UK
personnel may be available (please contact Richard Jones <R.E.Jones@ukc.ac.uk>).
Talk slots will be allocated on a first-come first-served basis. If you would
like to give a talk, please indicate this when registering for the workshop,
and indicate whether you prefer a short (15 min) or normal (30 min) slot.
Titles and abstracts should be finalised before the workshopd. We will collect
presentations from the workshop online to form an informal proceedings at the
time, and may approach speakers to form an edited formal proceedings at a later
now provisional registration and notification of talks
