Please consider publishing work-in-progress OS or language based
virtual machine research at the following workshop:


Runtime Environments, Systems, Layering and Virtualized
Environments (RESoLVE'12)

Workshop at ASPLOS 2012, London, UK
March 3rd, 2012

The second workshop on Runtime Environments, Systems,
Layering, and Virtualized Environments (RESoLVE'12) aims to
brings together researchers in both the OS and language
level virtual machine communities to exchange ideas and
experiences and to discuss how these separate layers can
take advantage of each others' services.

This workshop will discuss work-in-progress research around
how these layers interact and complement each other, and how
best to support new software architectures. Topics of
interest include:

* better structuring / communication of services and
 divisions of labor
* trade-offs in the boundary between trusted and untrusted
 bases and mechanisms to provide information / feedback
 across the layers
* approaches for particular services (e.g. memory management
 / garbage collection / synchronization / signalling /
* prototypes demonstrating combinations of SW- and HW-based
 techniques to provide better isolation, scaling, and
* enabling legacy systems to more readily take advantage of
 new hardware and software capabilities through virtual
 appliances and services
* visualization / introspection techniques for understanding
 the resulting systems


Submission deadline: 3 Dec 2011
Notification: 14 Jan 2012
Camera-ready deadline: 4 Feb 2012
Workshop: 3 Mar 2012


We solicit papers for informal, non-archival
proceedings. Papers should be 6-8 pages, in the SIGPLAN
conference format. Full details are available on the
workshop website at
Also note that several travel grants are available for student
paper presentations.
