Message from the OOPSLA 2001 Conference Chair
The OOPSLA 2001 Committee is shocked and deeply saddened by the loss of human life resulting from the recent terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington, D.C., and Somerset, Pennsylvania. Our thoughts are with all who have suffered and are continuing to suffer from this violence. At a time like this it is difficult to carry on, but we have decided that it is important to do just that. Though our hearts are heavy we will proceed.
OOPSLA 2001 in Tampa Bay, Florida REMAINS ON SCHEDULE for October 14-18, and we are still accepting registrations.
We are committed to hosting a successful conference despite the challenges, both as a demonstration of international unity and because we all have so much to accomplish together. Many across the world have invested mightily in preparing the work to be showcased. From the events that have transpired it is clear that software and information technology are of paramount importance. Now more than ever it is important to push the frontiers of object technology. Let's work together to ensure a demonstration of international technical excellence and collegiality.
It is our opinion that OOPSLA's international attendees will be able to travel to Tampa without problems and attend the conference. We have no indication from the US State Department of any changes in the visa application process (see http://travel.state.gov/visa.visitors.html for visa information).
We ask of our exhibitors and US participants, patience and cooperation in taking the necessary precautions.
I look forward to seeing you in Tampa and reaffirming the OOPSLA community as the professional oasis we have treasured for 15 years.
