SSCLI RFP II Capstone 2005

The Microsoft Research SSCLI RFP II Capstone 2005 workshop provided an opportunity for SSCLI RFP II award recipients to present their work in applying SSCLI, the Shared Source Common Language Infrastructure, to a wide range of research and teaching challenges.

Microsoft Research’s External Research and Programs group hosted a three-day workshop September 19–21, 2005 in Redmond, Washington. This workshop was a follow-on to the successful SSCLI RFP I Capstone Workshop held in 2003.

The workshop provided an opportunity for SSCLI RFP II award recipients to present their work in applying SSCLI, the Shared Source Common Language Infrastructure, to a wide range of research and teaching challenges.

SSCLI, previously known as “Rotor,” provides a free, shared-source implementation of Microsoft’s Common Language Runtime platform, including source code for C# and JScript compilers, as well as for the Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) platform itself. It also contains source code for a variety of useful developer tools, including a Common Intermediate Language (CIL) assembler, a disassembler, a debugger, a profiler, and an assembly linker. The SSCLI code can be used, modified, and redistributed, for non-commercial experimentation; used as a basis for research, courseware, or lab projects; or used as a guide for those developing their own commercial ECMA implementations.
