Dear functional friends

Here's the Call for Papers for a new Workshop on Intermediate Representations.  

I expect it to get a lot of papers about the JVM and program dependence graphs, but the Chair explicitly wants papers about intermediate representations for functional programs, both typed and untyped.  So, do me a favour :-) and submit your paper, lest I get landed with a mountain of SSA papers to review.   (Yes, SSA is just CPS in disguise. But the disguise is heavy.)

The deadline is rather short: Jan 21.  Happy Christmas!


Call for Papers

International Workshop on Intermediate Representations (WIR 2011)

Co-located with CGO 2011, April 2/3 2011 in Chamonix, France



The intermediate representation is the core of any program transformation tool. Its design has a significant impact on the simplicity, efficiency, and effectiveness of program transformations. The developments in concurrent programming, integrated development environments, and domain-specific languages pose new requirements on intermediate representations. This workshop provides a forum to discuss current trends and experiences in the design, implementation, and application of intermediate representations.  

Topics of Interest

The list of topics includes, but is not limited to:

   * intermediate representations for
         o parallelism and concurrency
         o instrumentation
         o JIT compilation
         o compiler verification
         o domain-specific languages
         o refactoring
         o integrated development environments
   * functional intermediate representations for imperative programs
   * translation to, and code generation from an IR
   * modeling low-level machine details in IRs
   * impact of IR on the precision of static analyzers
   * representing static analysis results in an IR
   * origin tracking


We solicit submission of original papers on topics relevant to intermediate
representations. Papers should be formatted in SIGPLAN Proceedings
Format, 9 point
font, and be at most 8 pages in length.

   * http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm

Selected papers will be published in the ACM digital library (to be confirmed).

Papers should be submitted electronically with easychair:
