OOPSLA 2000, Conference On Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages and Applications

Chair: Gail Murphy, workshops@oopsla.acm.org
Submissions due date: April 3, 2000
Notification of acceptance or rejection: May 26, 2000

Workshops are intensive collaborative sessions where object technologists meet to surface, discuss, and solve challenging problems facing the field. Workshops also provide the opportunity for representatives of a technical community to coordinate efforts and to establish collective plans of action. OOPSLA workshops are full-day events on either of the first two days before the conference. To ensure a sufficiently small group for effective interaction, workshop organizers manage attendance based on a review of short position papers from potential attendees.

We encourage proposals for innovative, well-focused workshops on a broad spectrum of object topics. Possible subjects include:

  • Components and COTS Integration
  • XML
  • Extreme Programming
  • E-Commerce
  • Reliable Distributed Objects
  • Objects in particular industries
  • Performance Engineering
  • Pedagogical and Training Considerations
  • Lightweight Methods
  • Language Technologies

We particularly encourage proposals for novel, highly-interactive workshops that fall outside the conventional workshop format.

This call for participation is for workshop organizers: a later call will occur for workshop attendees. NOTE that each workshop must have at least TWO organizers, preferably from different organizations.

Submission Procedure
Electronic submission of proposals is required. Paper and fax submissions will not be accepted.

Go to your OOPSLA 2000 Personal Page. If you do not have a personal page yet, or if you have forgotten the URL, go to the "My OOPSLA2000" page (you can also get there from the OOPSLA home page).

  • From your OOPSLA 2000 Personal Page, follow the "Submit Workshop" link.
  • Complete the Workshop Form on the Web page and hit "submit". You will be transferred to your own private URL from which you can check on the status of your Workshop submission at any time.
  • You will receive confirmation by email that your proposal has been received and is complete.
  • Proposals must be submitted no later than 3 April 2000, but earlier is better.
  • Proposals may be modified online up until the 3 April deadline.

Acceptance and rejection notifications will be emailed by 26 May 2000.

Proposal Review and Acceptance
The proposals received will be reviewed by the Workshop Committee to determine a high quality and appropriate mix for the conference.

Proposals will be reviewed against the following criteria:

Does the proposal present its case succinctly and completely?

Does the proposal carefully frame the topic?

Is the topic about object-oriented issues?

Is a workshop the right venue or does the proposal fit better into another type of OOPSLA event?

Is the topic under scrutiny by the community or has this issue been covered before?

Is this topic likely to be of interest to a reasonable number of participants?

Has the requisite background knowledge of the organizers been established?

Are there at least two organizers and do they represent a reasonably varied cross-section of the community?
