CODE Colloquium

Wir freuen uns, Sie zum CODE Colloquium begrüßen zu dürfen.  In regelmäßigen Abständen laden wir in Kooperation mit ITIS e.V. einen hochkarätigen Redner für einen Vortrag von 45 Min. zu einem ausgewählten IT-Thema sowie Q+A im Anschluss abgerundet durch ein Get-Together an das Forschungsinstitut CODE ein.

Redner des Abends: Prof. Dr. Laurence Tratt vom Kings College London

Titel: "Between the Lines: VM Assumptions"​


Programming language Virtual Machines (VMs) must make many assumptions
about how programs typically operate in order to effectively optimise
them. We less commonly consider the many assumptions that VM developers
and researchers hold about how VMs operate and the context within which
they operate. In this talk, I will present a number of partly, or wholly,
unstated assumptions that we have about VMs and their development, ranging
from benchmarking to security. Together they may help partly, although
probably not wholly, how VMs got to where they are today -- and also offer
suggestions for how we can do things differently in the future.

Bio: Laurence Tratt is a Reader in Software Development at King's College
London, where he leads the Software Development Team. His work is strongly
motivated by real-world issues concerning programming languages: how to
make them faster, more expressive, and applicable to novel situations.
His past work includes language design (e.g. the "Converge" language),
virtual machine optimisation techniques (e.g. "storage strategies"), and
language composition (e.g. "PyHyp", the first composition of two
real-world languages).
