[Call for Papers] Workshop on Self-sustaining Systems (S3) 2008

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Gregor Schmidt, Dec 13, 2007.

  1. Hello,

    I know, this is slightly uncommmon in the Ruby community, but there
    are so many Ruby implementations out there and I am sure, somebody is
    interested in the topic. That is why I forward this call for papers to
    this list.

    If this is the wrong place, I am sorry and will be happy, if someone
    points me to the correct one.

    *** Workshop on Self-sustaining Systems (S3) 2008 ***

    May 15-16, 2008
    Potsdam, Germany

    -- Call for papers:

    The Workshop on Self-sustaining Systems (S3) is a forum for discussion
    of topics relating to computer systems and languages that are able to
    bootstrap, implement, modify, and maintain themselves. One property of
    these systems is that their implementation is based on small but
    powerful abstractions; examples include (amongst others)
    Squeak/Smalltalk, COLA, Klein/Self, PyPy/Python, Rubinius/Ruby, and
    Lisp. Such systems are the engines of their own replacement, giving
    researchers and developers great power to experiment with, and explore
    future directions from within, their own small language kernels.

    S3 will be take place May 15-16, 2008 at the Hasso-Plattner-Institute
    in Potsdam, Germany. It is an exciting opportunity for researchers and
    practitioners interested in self-sustaining systems to meet and share
    their knowledge, experience, and ideas for future research and

    Ian Piumarta: Late-bound Object Lambda Architectures (Viewpoints
    Research Institute, USA)

    -- Submissions and proceedings:

    S3 invites submissions of high-quality papers reporting original
    research, or describing innovative contributions to, or experience
    with, self-sustaining systems, their implementation, and their
    application. Papers that depart significantly from established ideas
    and practices are particularly welcome.

    Submissions must not have been published previously and must not be
    under review for any another refereed event or publication. The
    program committee will evaluate each contributed paper based on its
    relevance, significance, clarity, and originality. Revised papers will
    be published as post-proceedings in the Springer LNCS series.

    Papers should be submitted electronically via EasyChair at
    http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=s3 in PDF format.
    Submissions must be written in English (the official language of the
    workshop) and must not exceed 20 pages. They should use the LNCS
    format, templates for which are available at
