Garbage Collection Visualization

the Jikes RVM has had GC visualization previously through the GCspy framework. This has become slightly out-of-date and it would be interesting to improve it and possibly look to integrate the visualization side of the work with a sister project of the RVM's tuning fork

Interested mentors: Richard Jones

New Garbage Collection Implementations for MMTk

We would be interested in hearing about adding new GC implementations to MMTk. As such the complexity of such a thing is high, we will take particular care when looking at your experience with relation to an application for this project.
