CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

WORKSHOP ON BINARY TRANSLATION

In Conjunction with the International Conference on Parallel Architectures and Compilation Techniques (PACT '99) http://www.rose-hulman.edu/PACT/

Newport Beach, California, USA October 16, 1999

OBJECTIVE

Although long employed by industry, large scale use of binary translation and on-the-fly code generation has only recently become common, and results have been published in widely scattered publications.

The main objective of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners with the aim of stimulating the exchange of ideas and experiences on the potential and limits of binary translation, and opening new avenues of research.

KEYNOTE ADDRESS

Dick Sites, architect of the DEC/Compaq Alpha and leader of the FX!32, VEST, and mx binary translation projects will present a 1 hour keynote address on "Historical Perspectives on Binary Translation".
