                                                            CALL FOR PAPERS

                                                                Workshop on

                                                                    at the
                                                              Conference on
                                              AND APPLICATIONS (OOPSLA'03)
                              26-30 October 2003, Anaheim, California, USA

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.

Full papers will be published as a LANL (Los Alamos National Laboratory)
technical report and archived at the MPOOL03 www site.

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


Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts in ASCII, 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 to ensure inclusion in
the proceedings. Submission and email correspondence to .
