19th Annual ACM Conference on Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages, and Applications

Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Centre
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

October 24-28, 2004

Program Chair: Doug Schmidt, Vanderbilt University

Welcome to OOPSLA 2004, convening October 24 through 28 in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia. As past participants can attest, OOPSLA is the premier gathering of professionals from industry and academia—practitioners, researchers, students, and educators—all sharing their experiences with object technology and its offshoots.

OOPSLA offers an extraordinary array of venues and activities. Presentations from invited speakers Rick Rashid, Steve McConnell, Allan Vermeulen, Ward Cunningham, Herb Sutter, and Jaron Lanier dovetail with those of technical papers, practitioner reports, expert panels, demonstrations, formal and informal educational symposia, workshops, and diverse tutorials from world-class lecturers. The popular Onward! track presents out-of-the-box thinking at the frontiers of computing. Poster sessions let you discuss late-breaking results with the researchers themselves, culminating in the Third Annual SIGPLAN Student Research Competition. DesignFest® provides hands-on design experience in a expert-mentored environment. And of course there are plenty of social opportunities for mingling and professional networking.

Again this year, we're privileged to host the ACM Turing Lecture, delivered on Tuesday evening by Alan Kay, 2003 Turing Award winner. Each year, ACM bestows its most prestigious technical award on an individual who has made major and lasting contributions to computer technology. Alan's work in object-oriented programming and personal computing are legendary, making it especially fitting that he give the Turing Lecture here at OOPSLA. Don't miss this historic event!

That's just a sampling of what makes OOPSLA the conference of choice for software technologists—from recognized academics to undergraduate students, from industrial researchers to developers and managers, from the creators of technology to its users.

Make a splash in Vancouver, and get ahead in software technology!
