	Within the past couple of years, there has been growing
	interest in studying the behavioural properties of
	object-oriented programs using concepts and ideas from the
	world of concurrent process calculi. This view has proven to
	be advantageous in many ways for semantics and verification
	issues: on one hand, the use of encodings of object-oriented
	languages into existing typed mobile process calculi enables
	formal reasoning about the correctness of programs; on the
	other hand, standard techniques from concurrency theory as
	well as specific encodings of objects as processes help in
	finding appropriate and mathematically tractable behavioural
	equivalences on objects.  The one-day SOAP workshop aims to
	bring together researchers working in this area.
