Call for Contributions

Ecoop is the premier forum in Europe for bringing together researchers, practitioners, and students to share their ideas and experiences in a broad range of disciplines woven with the common thread of object-oriented programming and object technology. It is a well-integrated collage of events, featuring carefully refereed technical papers, topic focused workshops, in-depth tutorials, late-breaking demonstrations, interactive posters sessions, a doctoral workshop, and outstanding invited speakers.

Technical papers

We invite high quality papers reporting research results and/or experience related to object technology. Research papers should describe work that advances the current state of the art. Experience papers should be of broad interest and should describe insights gained from practical application of object technology ― of use to other researchers and practitioners. The program committee will evaluate each contributed research and experience paper based on its relevance, significance, clarity, originality, and correctness.

For details and submission guidelines, please go to this page.

Additional Tracks and Events

We invite high quality proposals in any of the following tracks related to object technology, as well as applications from doctoral students who want to attend the PhD workshop.
The purpose of a workshop is to serve as a forum for exchanging emerging research ideas. They typically focus on in-depth or cross-domains areas related to object technology.
Ecoop 2004 hosts a two-day tutorial program. Proposals for high-quality tutorials in all areas of object-orientation from academic research to industrial applications are solicited. Tutorials are set up to last a half or full day, and should give a deeper or more covering insight into a particular area of object technology than a conventional lecture would do. Tutorial levels may be introductory, intermediate, or advanced. The main criteria for selecting tutorials will be the intrinsic interest and timeliness of the topic. Topics of broad interest will be preferred.
Proposals are solicited for live demonstrations of object-oriented software. Both commercial tools and in-house systems are welcome, as are demonstrators resulting from academic and corporate research.
Practitioners report:
This track provides you with an opportunity to share your experiences in applying object-oriented technologies with others.
Posters provide authors with a unique opportunity make ongoing work visible and to get feedback. Posters are especially useful for presenting new ideas that have not yet been developed to the point of a regular paper. PhD students in particular are encouraged to submit a poster proposal describing their work.
PhD Workshop/Doctoral Symposium:
The PhD workshop and doctoral symposium are fora for an invited group of doctoral students to present their work and obtain feedback from senior researchers as well as from other workshop participants.
eclipse Technology eXchange:
This meeting will include a brief overview of the Eclipse Technology project, as well as a poster session of some current Eclipse projects.
