6th Workshop on Virtual Machines and Intermediate Languages (VMIL’12)

    Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


    The VMIL workshop is a forum for research in virtual machines and intermediate languages. It is dedicated to identifying programming mechanisms and constructs that are currently realized as code transformations or implemented in libraries but should rather be supported at VM level. Candidates for such mechanisms and constructs include modularity mechanisms (aspects, context-dependent layers), concurrency (threads and locking, actors, software transactional memory), transactions, etc. Topics of interest include the investigation of which such mechanisms are worthwhile candidates for integration with the run-time environment, how said mechanisms can be expressed at the intermediate language level, how their implementations can be optimized, and how virtual machine architectures might be shaped to facilitate such implementation efforts.
