This year’s OOPSLA presents an impressive and eclectic array of invited speakers, including the ACM Turing award lecture by Kristen Nygaard and O.J. Dahl, the pioneers of objects, and a presentation by none other than Bill Gates, the most prominent figure in the computing industry. Other speakers include OOPSLA’s “ol’ boys” Kent Beck and Ward Cunningham; Anders Hejlsberg of Microsoft covering C# while Alfred Z. Spector of IBM presenting the latest in Web Services; and finally, the future of software and civilization is discussed by Jerry Michalski.

OOPSLA’s technical sessions has also been renowned for not only embodying paper sessions that present the latest, top-rate academic research results, but also numerous number of panels (eight this year) that facilitate interactive dialogues by prominent leaders of the field, practitioners report that illustrates real-world uses and solutions using object technology, posters that cover early but promising work, and demos where commercial as well as commercial products are demonstrated. New this year is “Onward!” that tries to identify new research directions in objects as well as software in general, and webservices where a series of tutorials, panels, and presentations cover the latest in the next-generation software technology.

UPDATE: Professor Kristen Nygaard had unfortunately passed away suddenly on August 10, 2002. After committee-wide discussions as well as receiving various suggestions from the community, the OOPSLA organizing committee decided to ask Professor Ole Lehrmann Madsen of Aarhus University, who had been a longtime research collaborator and a very good friend of Professor Nygaard, to give the lecture in his behalf, in order to commemorate Professor Nygaard’s pioneering co-achievements with Professor O.J. Dahl, who had also passed away earlier on June 29, 2002. Professor Madsen kindly accepted the offer, and is giving a lecture titled "The Scandinavian School of Object-Orientation – in memory of Ole-Johan Dahl and Kristen Nygaard".
