Welcome to the 2016 ACM SIGPLAN International Symposium on Memory Management (ISMM 2016)! ISMM 2016 is co-located with PLDI 2016 in Santa Barbara, California.

We are pleased to announce the keynote speech by Onur Mutlu (ETH Zurich & CMU) on Rethinking Memory System Design. More details about our keynote talk and technical program can be found here. Registration link is here.

ISMM is a premier forum for research in memory management. ISMM solicits papers from the areas including but not limited to:

  • Memory allocation and de-allocation
  • 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
  • Memory management on accelerator architectures or other non-traditional systems
  • Development and evaluation of open source implementations related to memory management

The detailed call for papers (CFP) is here. The submission site is here.
