ISMM is a forum for research in memory management. Areas of interest include but are not limited to:

ISMM solicits full-length submissions covering new work on these topics, as well as papers presenting confirmations or refutations of important prior results. Surveys and comparative analyses that shed new light on previously published techniques are also welcome.

Submissions will be read by the program committee and designated reviewers, and judged on scientific merit, innovation, readability, and relevance. Papers previously published or already being reviewed by another conference are not eligible; if a closely related paper has been submitted to a journal, the authors must notify the program chair (see the SIGPLAN republication policy).

Papers are submitted online using the following link (easychair):

The use of the RC increases the breadth and depth of the reviewer pool.

This year's review committee is as follows:
