Co-located with ECOOP 2018
held Mon 16 - Sun 22 July in Amsterdam, Netherlands

The ICOOOLPS workshop series brings together researchers and practitioners
working in the field of language implementation and optimization. The goal of
the workshop is to discuss emerging problems and research directions as well as
new solutions to classic performance challenges.

The topics of interest for the workshop include techniques for the
implementation and optimization of a wide range of languages including but not
limited to object-oriented ones. Furthermore, meta-compilation techniques or
language-agnostic approaches are welcome, too.

### Topics of Interest

A non-exclusive list of topics of interest for this workshop is:

- Implementation and optimization of fundamental languages features (from
  automatic memory management to zero-overhead metaprogramming)
- Runtime systems technology (libraries, virtual machines)
- Static, adaptive, and speculative optimizations and compiler techniques
- Meta-compilation techniques and language-agnostic approaches for the efficient
  implementation of languages
- Compilers (intermediate representations, offline and online optimizations,…)
- Empirical studies on language usage, benchmark design, and benchmarking
- Resource-sensitive systems (real-time, low power, mobile, cloud)
- Studies on design choices and tradeoffs (dynamic vs. static compilation,
  heuristics vs. programmer input,…)
- Tooling support, debuggability and observability of languages as well as their

### Workshop Format and Submissions

This workshop welcomes the presentation and discussion of new ideas and emerging
problems that give a chance for interaction and exchange. More mature work is
welcome as part of a mini-conference format, too. We aim to interleave
interactive brainstorming and demonstration sessions between the formal
presentations to foster an active exchange of ideas. The workshop papers will be
published in ACM DL or an open archive (to be confirmed). Papers are to be
submitted using the sigplanconf LaTeX template

Please submit contributions via EasyChair:
