  • Virtual machines for high-level languages
  • Programming language support for virtualization
  • Compiler support for virtualization (including
    dynamic compilation)
  • Binary translation and optimization
  • Novel techniques and applications of interpreters
  • Automatic resource and memory management
  • Virtualization for security and reliability
  • Virtualization technologies for grid computing
  • Virtualization technologies for parallel computing
  • Virtual machine monitors
  • Operating system support for virtualization
  • Management technologies for virtual environments
  • Large-scale virtual environments
  • Virtual Storage
  • Virtualization technologies for desktop applications
  • Applications that use virtualization in novel ways
  • Other experiences with virtual execution environments
  • Performance analysis and debugging for virtual execution environments

Submission Guidelines

Papers must be formatted according to the SIGPLAN proceedings format (9-point) and should be no longer than 10 pages in this format. This 10-page limit includes everything (i.e., it is the total length of the paper). The formatting rules will be strictly enforced, and papers that do not conform to them may be automatically rejected by the program chairs. Templates for the SIGPLAN proceedings format can be found here. Submissions should be in PDF and printable on US Letter-sized paper.

Submitted papers must describe work unpublished in venues with a formal proceedings, and not currently submitted for publication elsewhere. See the SIGPLAN republication policy for more details

Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign ACM copyright release forms. Proceedings will be published by ACM Press.

Paper Evaluation

The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to the VEE audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, relevance, correctness, and clarity. The abstract and introduction must be written so that they can be understood by an audience with varied expertise. The paper should clearly identify what has been accomplished, why it is significant, and how it compares with previous work. Papers in new areas or novel approaches to existing areas are especially encouraged. It is acceptable for papers in new areas to contain fewer quantitative evaluations and comparisons than those in more established areas. Suggestions on how to prepare a good submission can be found here and here.
