Welcome to OOPSLA 2005, the premier gathering of
professionals from industry and academia, including practitioners,
researchers, students, and educators--all sharing their experiences with
object technology and its offshoots.
OOPSLA has been an incubator of many state-of-the-art technologies and practices.
Some of them are patterns, refactoring, aspect-oriented programming, dynamic
compilation and optimization, unified modeling language, and agile methods.
OOPSLA offers an extraordinary
array of venues and activities: presentations from invited speakers
Gerald Jay Sussman,
David P. Reed,
Mary Beth Rosson,
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. Posters
discuss late-breaking results, culminating in the Fourth Annual SIGPLAN
Student Research Competition.
New for this year are essays and
lightning talks. And be sure to look for the special 20th year events
with our creativity consultant. And of course there are
plenty of social opportunities for mingling and professional networking.
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.
We look forward to seeing you in San Diego!
