Jaron Laniercomputer scientist, composer, visual artist, author, and coiner of the term "virtual reality"will deliver the keynote for this year's Onward! track. And Alan Kay, one of the founders of the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center and 2003 Turing Award winner, will address the Educators' Symposium.
OOPSLA's technical sessions are known not only for top-flight research papers (twenty-seven of them this year) but also for exciting panels that stir debate among leaders in the field, practitioner reports depicting real-world application of object technology, posters that cover early but promising work, and demonstrations where commercial as well as open-source products are displayed. Last but by no means least, Onward! presents technical and philosophical papers describing new paradigms in computing, new thinking about objects, new framings of computational problems and systems, and new technological frontiers.
