While OO has become ubiquitous for design, implementation, and even
conceptualization, many practitioners recognize the 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
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--that is, to
describe techniques, idioms, methodologies, language extensions,
or supporting theoretical work for expressing non-OO paradigms in OO
languages. Work-in-progress descriptions are welcome, as are
papers if they present a lesson to be learned.

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

    * module systems vs. object systems;

    * OO design patterns and their relation to functional patterns;

    * type system relationships across languages.

An overall summary of the workshop will be published in the ECOOP'2001
Workshop Reader. In addition, full papers will be published as an issue
of the NIC (John von Neumann Institute for Computing) series,
at the workshop, and also made available at the MPOOL'2001 WWW site.

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