I asked Michael Foord if I could forward this along to parrot-dev and
he said that it was fine. Please consider yourself invited to this VM
Summit and contact Michael Foord with a 'maybe' or a 'yes' if you plan
on attending.

I think this summit will be a great place to cross-pollinate ideas
with other VM's. It is important for Parrot to have a presence.

Hello Jonathan,

At PyCon 2011 we are holding the Virtual Machine Summit, on March 9th
2011, and you are invited!

This is a networking and discussion group for those involved in the
implementation of Virtual Machines for dynamic languages, and is not
Python specific. Invitees include developers from the CPython, JRuby,
IronRuby, IronPython, PyPy, Jython, Parrot, LLVM, Lua, Smalltalk and
JavaScript VM projects.

Topics of discussion will include performance (of course) of dynamic
languages, garbage collection strategies, language interoperation,
compatibility testing, memory use, tools and tool support. Like
previous years we will not have a fixed agenda but will have some
bullet point discussion topics to keep things moving.

Attendance is by invite only and is free. There is no requirement that
attendees also attend PyCon, but you are responsible for your own
travel and accommodation costs.

The venue is the Hyatt Regency Atlanta:

   Main PyCon 2011 website: http://us.pycon.org/2011/
   Venue details: http://us.pycon.org/2011/venue/

If you would like to attend, please reply to this email to let me
know. If you are considering coming, but not able to make a definite
decision yet, then a 'maybe' is still helpful for our venue planning.
Feel free to suggest to me other people that it would be good to
invite or contact me with any other questions.

We would also like to have short presentations from all the projects
represented at the summit. If you have anything you would like to
present (the more experimental the better) then please let me know.

The summit will run from 10am to 4pm (March 9th 2011). Attendees will be
emailed with room details (etc) closer to the final date.

All the best,

Michael Foord
VM Summit Organiser
