2012 MM-NET Workshop
Memory Management for Many- and Multicore
Monday 23rd April 2012, Imperial College London
Call for participation
Memory management remains an important research area as managed run-time environments are increasingly widely adopted. Server requirements for multi-gigabyte heaps, the ubiquitous use of multicore platforms and the advent of many-core processors throw up new research challenges. This one-day workshop aims to bring together UK academia and industry with the aim of establishing new links and enhancing existing collaboration within the framework of the UK Memory Management Network.
Participation is welcomed from both academic and industrial sectors. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
virtual machine implementation
garbage collection algorithms
performance tuning techniques
empirical studies of dynamic behaviour
abstractions and models for memory management
runtime support for many- and multicore systems
language designs aimed at many- and multicore systems
As with previous workshops, the day included a mixture of presentations and time for discussion of ongoing work and future research directions. Follow the links below to see the presentations/papers (if yours is missing, please send it to Richard asap).
