Way back in the 20th century, everyone got really excited by a "new" concept called "object oriented." It was a new way to think about building systems, a new way to describe components, a new way to achieve reuse, a new way to build models and write programs. Turned out OO caused almost as many problems as it solved! The next "new" concept / structure / description / reuse / model / language is coming (or it is here) and it is called "Web Services." The Objects and Web Services Technical Track at OOPSLA 2002 will be a week-long event to put Web Services under the microscope, to see where it overlaps with our OO experiences, and to see if we can, as a community, build a common future for it and objects. The week will encompass eight tutorials, two workshops, two panels, technical presentations, and two plenary talks all devoted to the relationships between the exciting new area of web services and the core focus of OOPSLA, object-oriented systems.

For listing of all events related to Objects and Web Services (including workshops and tutorials), please refer to the Web Services Track.
