  • Registration for ISMM (and PLDI) is now open here.
    Early registration deadline is May 17, 2006.
  • Hotel registration is via the PLDI site here.
  • The program is now available here.
  • The ISMM 2006 paper reviewing process adds two features new to ISMM: double blind reviewing, and an opportunity for rebuttal; click here for more details.
  • We are pleased to announce that beginning in 2006 ISMM will become an annual conference.

ISMM is a forum for research in management of dynamically allocated memory. Areas of interest include but are not limited to: explicit storage allocation and deallocation; garbage collection algorithms and implementations; compiler analyses to aid memory management; interactions with languages, operating systems, and hardware, especially the memory system; and empirical studies of allocation and referencing behavior in programs that make significant use of dynamic memory.

ISMM 2006 continues the tradition of the successful conference series established with the International Workshops on Memory Management held in 1992 and 1995. Since 1998 ISMM has been held biennially, co-located with either OOPSLA or PLDI.

Proceedings of the IWMM workshops are available from Springer-Verlag (Lecture Notes in Computer Science nos. 637 and 986), while the ISMM proceedings are published by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).
