CFP - LMO97: Languages and Models with Objects
CALL FOR PAPERS
LANGUAGES AND MODELS WITH OBJECTS
BREST, OCTOBER 22, 23 and 24, 1997
LMO'97 will take place in Brittany, close to Brest. Previous LMO
conferences were held in Grenoble, Nancy and Leysin. As usual, the LMO
conference will mainly focus on the concept of object in the fields of
software development, knowledge representation and data bases. It will
also aim to analyse and compare the different approaches and future
1- Object-oriented Representation:
Object-oriented KR models (description logics, conceptual graphs,
composite objects, frames, etc.); data models; semantics and
inference mechanisms of these models (classification, inheritance,
filtering, etc.); reification.
2- Object-oriented Programming:
Objects and types (inheritance, sub-typing, etc.); objects and
behaviours; object specifications; parallelism and objects;
actors; reflexivity; etc.
3- Objets and Persistence:
Object-oriented data base management systems; data mining;
indexing by classification; etc.
4- Objects-Oriented Engineering:
Object life cycle; object evolution and versioning; software security;
analysis and design methods; formal and semi-formal
specifications; frameworks, etc.
5- Orthogonal topics:
Constraints and objects; rules and objects; case-based
reasoning and objects, etc.
Objects and algorithms; objects for chemistry, music, life sciences, CAD,
intelligent tutoring systems, telecommunications, etc.
Submissions that establish relationships and constructive comparison
betweeen the different object approaches are strongly encouraged.
French and English-written papers are accepted. However, french
speakers are strongly invited to submit and speak in french; and
discussions and panels will be mainly in french.

Three types of contributions can be submitted: papers, posters and
problem presentations. They should written in french or in english for
non french speakers.
Papers, should be limited to 5000 words (or 12 pages, A4 format, 50
lines, 12-point times font, including tables, figures and
references). The first page must include the title of the paper, the
authors' postal and e-mail addresses, fax and phone numbers, a short
abstract of about 10 lines, and a list of up to 3 keywords. Each
submissions will be assessed by three reviewers, members of the
Poster should be limited to one page including the title, the authors'
postal and e-mail addresses and fax and phone numbers, and an abstract
-limited to half a page. Selection will mainly be one on the basis of
topics and/or application aspects. Posters will be published in an
appendix of the proceedings.
Problems are dedicated to the presentation of well-defined technical
problems in our domain and to the emergence of fruitful discussions on
how they could be solved. To propose some solutions is not required to
submit a problem presentation. A problem submission is similar to a
poster submission (one page).
Submissions must be received before April 4th 1997. Authors must
submit both a hard and an "electronic" copy.
* Hard copies: send 4 copies at the following address:
LIRMM, Universite de Montpellier 2
161 rue ADA
34392 MONTPELLIER CEDEX 5
* Electronic copies:
* by Ftp (for papers) : save a printable Postcript file at
the following address:
* send by email the first page the first page of the paper,
in text format - ascii isolatin1 - including the name of
the postcript2 file, to: LMO97@enst-bretagne.fr.
For posters and problem presentations, the first page by email
is sufficient for electronical submission.
* by email : LMO97@enst-bretagne.fr

It is envisaged that, this year, the proceedings will be published by
a french publisher. We plan to biennially collect the english version
of the best papers and to publish it by an international publisher.
