Keynotes & Invited Speakers

The Keynotes & Invited Speakers Track contains talks, invited by the Conference Committee, on new, different, or otherwise interesting perspective on topics of broad, general interest. The five invited talks this year meet this standard, and in addition a theme has emerged - open source software (OSS). The OOPSLA Keynote talk, by Tim O'Reilly, hits directly on that theme. The Onward! Keynote, by Prof. Lawrence Lessig of Stanford University Law School, talks about some legal aspects of OSS. Gerald Labedz's talk is less on the what of OSS and more on how - leveraging OSS can provide a catalyst to building a high-performing sophisticated system. The final talk of this theme is that of Dr. Erich Gamma on Eclipse. Additionally, while not on the OSS theme but clearly on topic for OOPSLA, Dr. David Ungar - an OOPSLA mainstay - discusses the paradoxes of programming language design.
