Looking for place to stay 2 months sabbatical


I’m looking for foreign (*1) lab at university, research institute or
private company who can accept me as a sabbatical for the two month (Aug
to Sep).

*1: I hope US to attend RubyConf2011 :slight_smile:

If you have troubles with Ruby interpreter, I’ll work on that problem.
If you have ideas for Ruby interpreter, it will be a good opportunity
for us.
If you don’t have any complaint against Ruby, it will helps me (and
maybe development of Ruby 1.9 series) if you accept me :slight_smile:

If your organization can accept me, please contact me [email protected].


My name is Koichi Sasada, lecturer at Graduate school of Information
Science and Technologies (IST), the University of Tokyo (*1). I’m also
a developer of scripting language Ruby (*2). The latest version of Ruby
(CRuby) 1.9 series employ new virtual machine (YARV) (*3) which I had
developed. We are continuing the development of VM to make it faster.

*1: IST - Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, The University of Tokyo
*2: Ruby - Ruby Programming Language
*3: YARV: yet another RubyVM: innovating the ruby interpreter

IST makes a “dispatch young researcher to foreign country” program to
encourage international research. Thanks to this program, I have an
opportunity to visit another research institute in two months (Aug to
Sep, this year). This program (IST) pays me all of travel expenses
(flight tickets, rent for apartment, and other living costs).

Current our main research topic is Scripting language for parallel
execution. Many languages/interpreters support parallel threads
(threads run in parallel). However, we believe programming with
parallel threads is very difficult. Scripting language such as Ruby
should more easy language. Our goal of this research is make an “easy
parallel scripting language”. One idea is Multi-VM (multiple VMs in one
process run in parallel).

Another activity is development Ruby (CRuby). There are many practical
problems such as performance problems (speed, memory consumption) and
