Workshop on Self-Sustaining Systems 2010

14 May, 2010

The Workshop on Self-sustaining Systems (S3) is a forum for discussion of topics relating to computer systems and languages that are able to bootstrap, implement, modify, and maintain themselves. One property of these systems is that their implementation is based on small but powerful abstractions; examples include (amongst others) Squeak/Smalltalk, COLA, Klein/Self, PyPy/Python, Rubinius/Ruby, and Lisp. Such systems are the engines of their own replacement, giving researchers and developers great power to experiment with, and explore future directions from within, their own small language kernels.

S3 will take place September 27-28, 2010 at The University of Tokyo, Japan. It is an exciting opportunity for researchers and practitioners interested in self-sustaining systems to meet and share their knowledge, experience, and ideas for future research and development.

See the conference website for details and deadlines.

  1. […] Rubinius 1.0发布了,一个具有里程碑意义的版本,虽然我现在工作外已经不大接触Ruby的东西了,但Rubinius还是有必要关注一下的,其中的Generational GC这个概念有空可以了解一下。Self-hosting像是现在动态语言发展的一个方向。像Python也有PyPy,也是最近发布了1.2版本。更不用说古老的LISP和Smalltalk。今年9月还有一个专门针对这类self-hosting语言的研讨会。 […]
