An Invitation to Participate

OOPSLA 2004 Conference Chair: John Vlissides, IBM Research, chair@oopsla.org

OOPSLA is the premier forum for practitioners, researchers, and students in diverse disciplines whose common thread is object technology. Historically, OOPSLA is an incubator of state-of-the-art technologies and practices. Dynamic compilation and optimization, patterns, refactoring, aspect-oriented programming, and agile methods (to name a few) all have OOPSLA roots. OOPSLA 2004 will continue that legacy—with your help.

Becoming an active participant in OOPSLA is easier than you think. Start by choosing the events below that match your interests and the status of your work. Then read the submission requirements carefully, and finally submit your paper or proposal using the OOPSLA online submission system.

I urge you to help shape the future of software development by contributing to OOPSLA 2004. We look forward to your submissions and to seeing you in Vancouver!
