On a related note to the last post, my poster got also accepted for SPLASH’10.

It will get a minor revision, and include some of the latest ideas related to locality and encapsulation. However, the abstract which will appear in the proceedings is rather high-level, and does not go into detail. It is another case of reusing IWT report material to have another little dot on the CV, and free food 😉


We propose to search for common abstractions for concurrency models to enable multi-language virtual machines to support a wide range of them. This would enable domain-specific solutions for concurrency problems. Furthermore, such an abstraction could improve portability of virtual machines to the vastly different upcoming many-core architectures.
