    International Symposium on Memory Management 2010
    Toronto, June 5-6, 2010


    ISMM is a forum for research in memory management. Areas of interest
    but are not limited to:

    * Memory allocation and deallocation
    * Garbage collection algorithms and implementations
    * Compiler analyses and tools to aid memory management
    * Empirical analysis of heap intensive programs
    * Formal analysis and verification of heap intensive programs
    * Memory system design and analysis
    * Verification of memory management algorithms
    * Development and evaluation of open source implementations

    ISMM solicits full-length submissions covering new work on these
    topics, as
    well as papers presenting confirmations or refutations of important
    results. Surveys and comparative analyses that shed new light on
    published techniques are also welcome.

    Conference: June 5-6, 2010


    Submitted papers must be in English and formatted to print on US
    Letter (8.5 x
    11 inches) paper. Submissions must contain an abstract and postal and
    mailing addresses for at least one contact author. All papers must be
    on-line, preferably in Portable Document Format (PDF), although the
    system will also accept PostScript. Submissions should be no more than
    10 pages
    (including bibliography, excluding well marked appendices) in standard
    SIGPLAN conference format: two columns, nine-point font (or larger) on
    ten-point baseline (or larger), with columns 20pc (3.33in) wide and
    54pc (9in)
    tall, and a column gutter of 2pc (0.33in). Detailed formatting
    guidelines along
    with formatting templates or style files for LaTeX are available at Papers that
    violate these
    guidelines will be rejected by the program chair. Program committee
    members are
    not required to read appendices, and so a paper should be intelligible
    them. All accepted papers will appear in the published proceedings.

    Double-blind reviewing

    Authors are anonymous to the reviewers, just as reviewers are
    anonymous to the
    authors. Authors must take reasonable efforts not to disclose their
    to reviewers: Do not give your names nor mention your institution,
    group or project name. Where necessary for flow, a stand-in name such
    as "XYZ",
    may be used, with a footnote explaining that the actual name is
    Discuss your own prior work in the third person, as you would other
    work. You may also provide reviewers with anonymous auxiliary material
    such as
    proofs and source code via the PC Chair (see below). Reviewers, for
    their part,
    will be honor-bound not to try to discover authors' identities until
    initial reviews are complete. Authors' identities will be revealed at
    a later
    point in the program committee's deliberations, but will be known only
    to the
    program chair until that point.

    Review committee

    ISMM uses a separate Review Committee (RC) as part of the reviewing
    process. The
    RC complements the Program Committee (PC) by providing expert reviews.
    The same
    reviewing standards apply to the RC as for the PC. However, RC members
    only a few papers each, and do not participate in the PC meeting. The
    use of the
    RC increases the breadth and depth of the reviewer pool.


    The rebuttal process will occur in early March 2010, and will give the
    opportunity to respond succinctly to factual errors in reviews, before
    program committee meets to make its decisions. The committee may, but
    need not,
    respond to rebuttals or revise reviews at or after the committee

    Auxiliary Material

    Authors may provide the PC Chair with a URL for upload of auxiliary
    The URL itself will not be seen by reviewers. The authors may
    reference such
    material in their paper, noting that the material has been made
    available to the
    PC Chair. This facility may be used by authors to provide reviewers
    with useful
    information beyond the scope of the submitted paper, such as technical
    proofs, and source code, without disclosing the authors' identity.
    Authors are
    obliged to make reasonable efforts to make all auxiliary material
    anonymous. Authors are reminded that reviewers are under no obligation
    to read
    any auxiliary material.
    Papers accompanied by or based on open-source implementations are
    welcome. However, if the authors are primary contributors to such a
    they should provide source URLs separately to the Program Chair for
    and not list them in the submission proper.


    The proceedings will be published by the ACM. Authors should read the
    ACM Author
    Guidelines and related information. Authors of accepted papers must
    that their paper will be presented at the conference. For additional
    please feel free to contact the Program Chair.
