                                          CALL FOR PARTICIPATION

                                                      Workshop on
                                                (MPOOL 2002, June 11)
                                                              at the
                            (ECOOP 2002, Malaga, Spain, June 10-14)

While OO has become ubiquitously employed for design, implementation,
and even conceptualization, many practitioners recognize the concomitant
need for other programming paradigms according to problem domain. We seek
answers to the question of how to address the need for other programming
paradigms in the general context of OO languages.

Can OO programming languages effectively support other programming
paradigms? The tentative answer seems to be affirmative, at least for some
paradigms; for example, significant progress has been made for the case of
functional programming in C++. Additionally, several efforts have been
made to integrate support for other paradigms as a front-end for OO
languages (the Pizza language, extending Java, is a prominent example).

This workshop seeks to bring together practitioners and researchers in this
developing field to 'compare notes' on their work---describe existing,
developing, or proposed techniques, idioms, methodologies, language
extensions, or software for expressing non-OO paradigms in OO languages; or
theoretical work supporting or defining the same. Work-in-progress
descriptions are welcome, as are 'experience' papers if they present an
lesson to be learned. Submissions are subject to refereeing by committee.

Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to:

  * non-OO programming with OO languages;
  * merging functional/logic/OO/other programs (language crossbinding);
  * non-OO programming at the meta level (e.g. template metaprogramming)
  * module systems vs. object systems
  * OO design patterns and their relation to functional patterns
  * type system relationships across languages
  * theoretical foundations of multiparadigm programming with OO languages

The workshop will consist of sequences (3-4) of short presentations followed
a discussion session. The workshop will conclude with an overall discussion.
We expect the majority of the participants to give presentations.

An overall summary of the workshop will be published in the ECOOP'2002
Workshop Reader (Springer LNCS). In addition, full papers will be
published as an issue of the NIC (John von Neumann Institute for Computing)
series, distributed at the workshop, and also made available at the
MPOOL'2002 WWW site.

For those requiring justification for travel the organizers can provide
official letters of invitation.


  Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts in PDF or postscript.
  Any common encoding (MIME or uuencode) or compression (zip, gzip) is
  acceptable. Authors of accepted papers are responsible for submitting the
  final version using the Springer LNCS LaTeX template

      May 2, 2002: Full papers due.


  This workshop is a joint organization by the John von Neumann Institute for
  Computing (NIC) at Research Centre Juelich, Germany, Los Alamos
  National Laboratory, and the Georgia Institute of Technology.
