The Workshop on Self-sustaining Systems (S3) is a forum for discussion
of topics relating to computer systems and languages that are able to
bootstrap, implement, modify, and maintain themselves. One property of
these systems is that their implementation is based on small but
powerful abstractions; examples include (amongst others)
Squeak/Smalltalk, COLA, Klein/Self, PyPy/Python, Rubinius/Ruby, and
Lisp. Such systems are the engines of their own replacement, giving
researchers and developers great power to experiment with, and explore
future directions from within, their own small language kernels.
S3 will be take place September 27-28, 2010 at The University of Tokyo,
Japan. It is an exciting opportunity for researchers and practitioners
interested in self-sustaining systems to meet and share their knowledge,
experience, and ideas for future research and development.
--- Submissions and proceedings ---
S3 invites submissions of high-quality papers reporting original
research, or describing innovative contributions to, or experience with,
self-sustaining systems, their implementation, and their application.
Papers that depart significantly from established ideas and practices
are particularly welcome.
Submissions must not have been published previously and must not be
under review for any another refereed event or publication. The program
committee will evaluate each contributed paper based on its relevance,
significance, clarity, and originality. Revised papers will be published
as post-proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.
