              4th UK Memory Management Network Workshop


                       University of Cambridge 

                   10am-5pm, Monday 19 April 2004

The UK Memory Management Network (http://www.mm-net.org.uk) intends to
hold a second general workshop at the University of Cambridge Computer
Laboratory on Monday, 19 April.  This follows on from our first
general workshop, held at the University of Glasgow in June 2002, and
workshops on Analytical Techniques for Memory Management at the
University of Kent at Canterbury in May 2003 and on Memory Management
for Handheld Devices at University College London in December 2003.

The aims of the Memory Management Network include the creation of a UK
forum in the field of memory management. It aims to complement existing 
strengths and support rapid exchange of ideas. In particular, it provides
a mechanism for bringing together researchers and developers from key UK 
organisations and universities. 

We define memory management broadly to include topics such as:

     . garbage collection of main-memory, persistent and distributed 

     . explicit dynamic memory allocation/de-allocation, 

     . measurement of memory system workloads, such as access patterns
       and object demographics,

     . interactions between programming languages, operating systems
       and hardware.

As with previous workshops, the day will include a mixture of
presentations and time for discussion about ongoing work and future
research directions.  Sessions will run from 10am until 5pm, with
coffee etc available from 9am.

Registration is free for mm-net members and should be made by e-mail
to the organiser, Tim Harris <tim.harris@cl.cam.ac.uk>.  Coffees and
lunch will be provided.  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.  Please also indicate
if you would like suggestions about traveling to Cambridge or about
local accommodation.

Titles and abstracts should be finalised before the workshop.  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 date.

Some support for travel costs for UK personnel may be available
