I'm writing to invite you to attend the Third Virtual Machine Research & Technology Symposium (VM '04), which will be held May 67, 2004, in San Jose, CA.
VM '04 will continue to emphasize research and advanced engineering techniques applicable to the development of virtual machines, with an emphasis on experimental results. Building on the success of the two preceding Java Virtual Machine symposia, the 2004 VM symposium has expanded its scope to encompass other types of virtual machines, such as Microsoft's .NET initiative, and low-level virtual machines.
The technical program of the symposium includes 14 papers that represent some of the best work in this area, on topics that include virtual machine architecture and performance, low-level virtualization, dynamic optimization, and virtual grids. The symposium will feature two Keynote Addresses by Mendel Rosenblum, Associate Professor of Computer Science, Stanford University, and by Miguel de Icaza, Co-founder and CTO, Ximian. In addition, VM '04 will also feature a Work-in-Progress Reports session and several Birds-of-a-Feather meetings.
VM '04 promises to be an exciting meeting, presenting the best of current research on virtual machines. I hope you will join us in San Jose. Please explore the Web site and register online today!
