                          Call For Papers

         WOOD 2003: Workshop on Object-Oriented Developments

                    co-located with ETAPS 2003

                  April 12, 2003, Warsaw, Poland

  Object-oriented programming languages have long been the subject
  of extensive foundational and applied research in a wide range of
  fields, including semantics, type theory, program verification and
  program development. More recently, object-oriented programming has
  emerged as an effective paradigm for structuring, composing and
  coordinating concurrent, distributed, and mobile code.

  WOOD2003 aims at providing a forum for discussion about theoretical
  work on object-oriented models and type systems, as well as presentation
  of experience reports on, and novel techniques for, program analysis
  and verification.

  Submissions for the workshop are invited in the above areas. Topics
  of interest include language semantics, type systems, program analysis
  and verification, design of new calculi and  languages.
  The main focus in selecting workshop contributions will be the
  intrinsic interest and timeliness of the work, so authors are
  encouraged to submit polished descriptions of work in progress as
  well as papers describing completed projects.
