SECOND CALL FOR CONTRIBUTIONS AND PARTICIPATION
MULTIPARADIGM PROGRAMMING WITH OO LANGUAGES (MPOOL 2010)
EUROPEAN CONFERENCE ON OBJECT-ORIENTED PROGRAMMING (ECOOP 2010)
21 or 22 July 2010, Maribor, Slovenia
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--or even domain specific languages--in the general context of OO
Can OO programming languages effectively support other programming
paradigms or the embedding of other languages? The 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). Libraries and extensions for
concurrency are also being developed for new and upcoming multi-core and
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. High-level
presentations of position are welcome, and reports of work in progress,
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);
- techniques for language embeddings (e.g. multistage programming);
- language embedding in OO languages (domain specific languages - DSLs)
- module systems vs. object systems;
- OO design patterns and their relation to functional patterns;
- multiparadigm and multilingual programming in the .NET framework;
- type system relationships across languages;
- theoretical foundations of multiparadigm programming with OO languages;
- multiparadigm approaches to support emerging hardware architectures (e.g.
multi/many-core CPUs, GPGPUs, IBM Cell, etc).
The workshop will consist of short presentations with interspersed
discussion sessions, and longer general discussions of themes or topics
derived from some common element of subsets of presentations. We expect
the majority of the participants to give presentations.
Prospective participants may submit either presentation abstracts or full
papers. All accepted materials will be distributed at the workshop, made
available at the MPOOL 2010 Web site and will nbe published by the ACM
Digital Library. Papers need to be formatted accordingly -- see
http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates for details.
For authors of accepted presentations who require justification for travel
the organizers can provide official letters of invitation.
Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts or full papers in PDF,
postscript, or Microsoft Word. Authors of accepted papers are responsible
for submitting the final version using an appropriate ACM template to
ensure inclusion in the proceedings. Submission and email correspondence
to mpool10 at multiparadigm.net .
May 4th, 2008: Abstracts due.
May 19th, 2008: Notification of acceptance.
This workshop is a joint organization by the University of Applied
Sciences, Regensburg, Germany, and the Los Alamos National Laboratory,
