Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this CFP.

The 16th International Conference on Managed Programming Languages &
Runtimes (MPLR, formerly ManLang) 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 around, ranging 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).

This year, MPLR is co-located with SPLASH 2019 and sponsored by ACM.

# Topics

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
    - Refactoring
    - Program understanding
    - Program synthesis
    - Security and privacy
    - Performance analysis and monitoring
    - Compiler and program verification

# Submission Categories

MPLR accepts four types of submissions:

 1. Regular research papers, which describe novel contributions involving
managed language platforms (up to 12 pages excluding bibliography and
appendix). Research papers will be evaluated based on their relevance,
novelty, technical rigor, and contribution to the state-of-the-art.

 2. Work-in-progress research papers, which describe promising new ideas
but yet have less maturity than full papers (up to 6 pages excluding
bibliography and appendix). When evaluating work-in-progress papers, more
emphasis will be placed on novelty and the potential of the new ideas than
on technical rigor and experimental results.

 3. Industry and tool papers, which present technical challenges and
solutions for managed language platforms in the context of deployed
applications and systems (up to 6 pages excluding bibliography and
appendix). Industry and tool papers will be evaluated on their relevance,
usefulness, and results. Suitability for demonstration and availability
will also be considered for tool papers.

 4. Posters, which can be accompanied by a one-page abstract and will be
evaluated on similar criteria as Work-in-progress papers. Posters can
accompany any submission as a way to provide additional demonstration and
discussion opportunities.

MPLR 2019 submissions must conform to the ACM Policy on Prior Publication
and Simultaneous Submissions and to the SIGPLAN Republication Policy.
