ISMM is a forum for research in management of dynamically allocated memory. Areas of interest include but are not limited to: explicit storage allocation and deallocation; garbage collection algorithms and implementations; compiler analyses to aid memory management; interactions with languages, operating systems, and hardware, especially the memory system; and empirical studies of allocation and referencing behavior in programs that make significant use of dynamic memory. We encourage submissions in new topics related to memory management, e.g., transactional memory, security, and correctness of memory systems.

Authors will receive preliminary copies of the reviews and can respond to each review to ensure proper understanding of their contributions.

ISMM 2007 continues the tradition of the successful conference series established with the International Workshops on Memory Management held in 1992 and 1995. Since 1998 ISMM has been held biennially, co-located with either OOPSLA or PLDI, and as of this year, has switched to an annual conference.  

Proceedings of the IWMM workshops are available from Springer-Verlag (Lecture Notes in Computer Science nos. 637 and 986), while the ISMM proceedings are published by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

We intend to invite the best ISMM'07 papers for a special issue of a journal.
