Call for papers: IRE-2002
                             2nd Workshop on
                   Intermediate Representation Engineering
                           for Virtual Machines
                      Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland
                              June 13-14, 2002
                 An associated workshop of the conference on
              Principles and Practice of Programming in Java[TM]
             Workshop web page: http://www.cs.may.ie/~jpower/ire/
The widespread use of Java[TM] technology has given increased prominence
the study of portable intermediate representation formats, particularly
those similar to the stack-based design of the Java Virtual Machine.
much attention has been given to performance issues, it is also
important to
consider the design of JVM bytecode in the light of its relationship to
its ancestors, such as Forth, as well as more recent competitors such as
Microsoft .NET framework.
This workshop seeks to explore issues relating to the design and
of intermediate representations. We are interested in position papers,
work-in-progress reports and synopses of current research.
Topics of interest include:
   * design and analysis of intermediate representations
   * static and/or dynamic analysis of Java bytecode
   * stack-based abstract machines
   * optimisation strategies
   * alternative intermediate representations
   * benchmarking and test suites
Papers covering related areas and systems (such as Forth, Oberon, C#
will also be considered.
It is intended to run the event in true workshop style, so authors
expect to discuss their proposals for 20-25 minutes in total, allowing
for interaction and questions.
Authors should submit a 3-5 page extended abstract (Postscript or PDF
format) to ire2002@cs.may.ie, to arrive not later than April 1 2002.
Papers will be reviewed for relevance, and the authors will be contacted
with feedback within two weeks of the submission date.
