ISMM is the premier forum for research in management of dynamically
memory. ISMM 2009 is colocated with PLDI’09, Programming Language
Design and
Implementation in Dublin, Ireland.

This year’s ISMM features:

  • Keynote speaker
  • 15 presentations
  • Wild and Crazy Ideas Session
    Complete details will be posted on the ISMM 09 web site when

Wild and Crazy Ideas
Following the success of this session in previous meetings, we will
hold this fun and informal forum for discussion of interesting ideas
in the
area of memory management. Presenters are given just 4 minutes in
which to
present their idea and 1 minute to take questions. Prizes are
awarded for
the idea most crazy and the one most worthy of implementation!
contribute your wild and crazy ideas. Contact the WACI chair, Tony
[email protected]invalid, before the event.
