Work-in-Progress Session: Call for Papers

Researchers are invited to submit abstracts of new research for inclusion in an informal Work-in-Progress session at the second USENIX Java Virtual Machine Research and Technology Symposium (Java VM'02), to be held in San Francisco, CA, August 1-2, 2002.

Abstracts of 1-2 pages (inclusive of any figures) should be submitted electronically to Jaejin Lee ( by June 7, 2002 (this is a hard deadline). Abstracts should be in PostScript or PDF formats, viewable by Ghostview or Acroread. Submissions longer than 2 pages will not be considered.

Program committee members will select the best abstracts for 10- to 15-minute talks during the session. This is intended to be a fun, informal session that will spark ideas and interactions. Topics of interest include all aspects of Java Virtual Machine technology, including (but not limited to):

  • Alternate JVM implementations
  • Hardware implementations
  • JITs and Execution Engines
  • Security and JVM issues
  • JVM Memory Model issues
  • Garbage Collection techniques
  • Small JVM (á la JavaCard)
  • Large JVM and Server issues (scalability and availability)
  • Porting issues
  • Performance issues and tuning techniques

Abstracts should clearly communicate the ideas behind the work, and should highlight any initial results. Submissions will be selected based on originality, the importance of the problem addressed, and the potential for conveying the ideas clearly in a mere ten minutes. Mature work that has been presented elsewhere in some form is inappropriate, and will not be considered. Notification of acceptance will be sent by June 24, 2002.

Any questions should be directed to the Work-in-Progress session chair, Jaejin Lee ( Please see the Java VM '02 home page for more details on the symposium.

We look forward to your submissions!
