Managed Languages & Runtimes Week '16 - Call for Participation (Lugano CH, Aug/Sep 16)

Managed Languages & Runtimes Week '16
PPPJ '16 / JTRES '16 / VMM '16

August 29 - September 2, 2016
Lugano, Switzerland



Managed Languages & Runtimes Week '16 is a premier forum for presenting and
discussing innovations and breakthroughs in the area of programming languages
and runtime systems, which form the basis of many modern computing systems,
from small scale (embedded and real-time systems) to large-scale
(cloud-computing and big-data platforms).

Managed Languages & Runtimes Week '16 features three international academic
and industry venues for the first time:

- PPPJ '16 - 13th International Conference on Principles and Practices of
Programming on the Java Platform: virtual machines, languages, and tools - A
forum for researchers, practitioners, and educators to present and discuss
novel results on all aspects of managed languages and their runtime systems,
including virtual machines, tools, methods, frameworks, libraries, case
studies, and experience reports. Managed languages and runtime systems of
interest include, but are not limited to, Java, Scala, JavaScript, Python,
Ruby, C#, F#, Clojure, Groovy, Kotlin, R, Java VM, Dalvik VM and Android
Runtime (ART), LLVM, .NET CLR, RPython. PPPJ'16 is in-cooperation with ACM

- JTRES '16 - 14th International Workshop on Java Technologies for Real-time
and Embedded Systems - A workshop for researchers working on real-time and
embedded Java with the goal of identifying the challenging problems that still
need to be solved in order to assure the success of real-time Java as a
technology and reporting results and experience.

- VMM '16 - 3rd Virtual Machine Meetup - A venue for discussing the latest
research and developments in the area of managed language execution.



Managed Languages & Runtimes Week takes place from August 29 to September 2,
2016. Presentation of papers accepted at PPPJ '16 and JTRES '16 will take
place on August 29-31, while VMM '16 will be held on September 1-2.

We are proud to announce our keynote speaker for Managed Languages & Runtimes
Week '16:

Thomas Gross
(ETH Zurich, Switzerland)

Title: From Managed Languages to Guarded Programs
Date and Time: Tuesday, August 30th - h. 14.30

Managed languages allow the runtime system to perform dynamic checks to detect
a wide range of problems. But even the combination of managed languages and
static checks has not eliminated software attacks. One reason is that
non-managed languages continue to be important (and will likely remain so). In
this talk I'll argue that managed languages may not have gone far enough and
discuss how dynamic checking based on binary translation can detect various
kinds of attacks. Given the abundance of computing cycles, it appears prudent
to rethink the role of the core software system and the hardware execution
engine(s) in supporting reliable software.

About The Speaker:
Thomas R. Gross is a Professor of Computer Science at ETH Zurich. He joined
Carnegie Mellon University in 1984 after receiving a Ph.D. in Electrical
Engineering from Stanford University. In 2000, he became a Full Professor at
ETH Zurich. He is interested in tools, techniques, and abstractions for
software construction and has worked on many aspects of the design and
implementation of software and computer systems. His current work concentrates
on low-cost/low-complexity networks (in collaboration with Disney Research,
Zurich), compilers, and programming parallel systems.
Thomas R. Gross has been a PI or co-PI of various research grants and
contracts. Recent projects, supported by the Swiss National Science
Foundation, include the "Datacenter Observatory", a joint EPFL-ETH Zurich-USI
project to support system-level research and teaching, and a collaboration
with USI on novel approaches for dynamic program analysis.
