ecoop08 22nd European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming
July 7th - 11th 2008, Paphos, Cyprus




The ECOOP 2008 conference invites high quality papers presenting research results or experience in all areas relevant to object technology, including work that takes inspiration from or builds connections to areas not commonly considered object-oriented. ECOOP wishes to embrace a broad range of topics, so the following list of suggested topics is by no means exclusive.

  • Analysis, design methods and design patterns
  • Concurrent, real-time or parallel systems
  • Databases, persistence and transactions
  • Distributed and mobile systems
  • Frameworks, product lines and software architectures
  • Language design and implementation
  • Testing and metrics
  • Programming environments and tools
  • Theoretical foundations, type systems, formal methods
  • Versioning, compatibility, software evolution
  • Aspects, Components, Modularity, Reflection
  • Collaboration, Workflow

Research papers should advance the current state of the art. Many different research methods can be applied, e.g., both experimentally based work and mathematical results are welcome. Experience papers should describe novel insight gained from the practical application of object technology, in such a way that it is of interest to a broad group of researchers and practitioners.

The program committee will evaluate each contributed paper according to the following groups of criteria: relevance; originality and significance; precision and correctness; and presentation and clarity. The importance of each group of criteria depends on the nature of the paper in question.
