MPOOL'04 -- Second Call for Contributions

We apologize if you have received this CfP multiple times.


Workshop on
(June 14 or 15, TBD)
at the
June 14-18, 2004, Oslo, Norway
While OO has become ubiquitously employed for design, implementation,
and even conceptualization, many practitioners recognize the concomitant
need for other programming paradigms according to problem domain. We
seek answers to the question of how to address the need for other
programming paradigms in the general context of OO languages.

Can OO programming languages effectively support other programming
paradigms? The answer seems to be affirmative, at least for some
paradigms; for example, significant progress has been made for the case
of functional programming in C++. Additionally, several efforts have
been made to integrate support for other paradigms as a front-end for OO
languages (the Pizza language, extending Java, is a prominent example).

This workshop seeks to bring together practitioners and researchers in
this developing field to `compare notes' on their work---describe
existing, developing, or proposed techniques, idioms, methodologies,
language extensions, or software for expressing non-OO paradigms in OO
languages; or theoretical work supporting or defining the same.
High-level presentations of position are welcome.

Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

* non-OO programming with OO languages;
* merging functional/logic/OO/other programs (language crossbinding);
* non-OO programming at the meta level (e.g. template etaprogramming);
* module systems vs.\ object systems;
* OO design patterns and their relation to functional patterns;
* multiparadigm and multilingual programming in the .NET framework;
* type system relationships across languages;
* theoretical foundations of multiparadigm programming with OO
The workshop will consist of short presentations with interspersed
discussion sessions, and longer general discussions of themes or topics
derived from some common element of subsets of presentations. We expect
the majority of the participants to give presentations.

Prospective participants may submit either presentation abstracts or
position papers. All accepted materials will be distributed at the
workshop and also made available at the MPOOL 2004 WWW site.

For authors of accepted presentations who require justification for
travel the organizers can provide official letters of invitation.

Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts or position papers
in PDF, Postscript, Microsoft Word, or ASCII text.
