Twenty four researchers attended the workshop. I'd like to thank Ravenbrook for hosting the workshop.


The workshop will be held at the University Centre, in the heart of Cambridge, UK (map), on Friday the 10th of November, 2006. The day will run from 10am to 5pm.

Cambridge has an award-winning Park&Ride service, and good public transport connections.

Here is some advice on travel and accommodation if you plan staying overnight.


This workshop is the latest in a series run as part of the UK Memory Management Network (MM-NET).

MM-NET is a network of researchers, interested in memory management for programming languages. The project's mission is to strengthen collaboration between UK industry and academia to further research and development of advanced memory management systems. MM-NET's previous workshops have been highly successful in this respect, bringing together researchers with interests ranging from logics for reasoning about memory use to developers of embedded systems.
