Call For Papers

The 15th International Conference on Managed Languages & Runtimes (ManLang, formerly PPPJ) is a premier forum for presenting and discussing novel results in all aspects of managed programming languages and runtime systems, which serve as building blocks for some of the most important computing systems, which range from small-scale (embedded and real-time systems) to large-scale (cloud-computing and big-data platforms) and anything in between (mobile, IoT, and wearable applications).

More information can be found at:


Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

=Languages and Compilers
Managed languages (e.g., Java, Scala, JavaScript, Python, Ruby, C#, F#, Clojure, Groovy, Kotlin, R, Smalltalk, Racket, Rust, Go, etc.)
Domain-specific languages
Language design
Compilers and interpreters
Type systems and program logics
Language interoperability
Parallelism, distribution, and concurrency

=Virtual Machines
Managed runtime systems (e.g., JVM, Dalvik VM, Android Runtime (ART), LLVM, .NET CLR, RPython, etc.)
VM design and optimization
VMs for mobile and embedded devices
VMs for real-time applications
Memory management
Hardware/software co-design

=Techniques, Tools, and Applications
Static and dynamic program analysis
Testing and debugging
Program understanding
Program synthesis
Security and privacy
Performance analysis and monitoring
Compiler and program verification

Important Dates

Submission: End of May 2018
Notification: Early July 2018
Camera-ready version due: Early August 2018
Conference: September 10-14, 2018

Submission and Proceedings

Submissions to the conference will be evaluated on the basis of originality, relevance, technical soundness and presentation quality. Papers should be written in English and not exceed 12 pages in ACM format (6 pages for WiP, industry, and tool papers). The conference proceedings will be published as part of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series and will be disseminated through the ACM Digital Library.
