> Part of the 12th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming
> Brussels, Belgium, July 20 - 24, 1998
> This workshop is supported financially by AITO
> Call for papers & participation
> The aim of the workshop is to bring together PhD students within
> the area of object-orientation. All major topics are relevant,
> including but not restricted to: methods, languages, applications,
> distribution, databases, patterns, semantics, frameworks, metrics,
> reuse, testing, graphics, user interfaces, and numerics.
> PhD students both in industry and in academia are encouraged to
> attend, to ensure a broad, unconfined discussion. The workshop is
> an opportunity for PhD students to meet and share their research,
> and to discover commonalities in research and studentship.
> The workshop is organized by PhDOOS, the international network of PhD
> Students in Object-Oriented Systems. PhDOOS was initiated during
> ECOOP'91 in Geneva, Switzerland, and today it has about 125 members
> from all over the world. There is a mailing list and a web site.
> More information about the web site is given below.
> Moreover, it is a tradition to strengthen the internal workshop
> network by dining together after the regular programme of the day.
> Topics and work practices
> The workshop is divided into plenary sessions and subgroup
> sessions. Among other things, the plenary session will feature
> PhDOOS-oriented keynote speeches by Eric Jul, U. of Copenhagen,
> and Dave Thomas, OTI.
> The subgroups will be formed before the workshop, based on the
> research interests of the participants. At the workshop, the main
> part of the technical programme consists of presentations and
> discussions in subgroups. Results and summaries from the subgroup
> discussions will be presented at a plenary session. Accepted works
> will be made available to all participants in advance.
