SIGPLAN and the OOPSLA Steering Committee have decided to institute an award for the "Most Influential OOPSLA Paper" from ten years ago, starting in 1997. The award is similar to awards given annually at POPL and PLDI, described on the web site http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/awards.htm. But OOPSLA started in 1986, leaving 11 years uncovered! To fix that problem, SIGPLAN and the OOPSLA Steering Committee decided to give a special award to the three most influential papers from the first 11 years of OOPSLA. Join us at this special event to celebrate these papers that have had such a profound impact on the theory and practice of object-oriented development.
The winner of the ACM SIGPLAN Student Research Competition will be announced.
The OOPSLA recipients of the ACM Distinguihsed Scientist / Engineer / Member award will be announced.
