			At Object World East 

			   May 5-9, 1996

		  Boston's Hynes Convention Center

Attention authors and potential authors of papers on the use of Dynamic
Languages: proven and new languages providing full support for Dynamic
Objects and/or Late Binding functionalities.

The Dynamic Objects Workshop is a forum for technical presentations
and discussions of innovative and practical applications of dynamic
objects and late binding techniques to software systems design and
implementation.  We are looking for concrete, practical papers
issues of importance to those who build or intend to build commercial
business and engineering applications that take advantage of these
software technologies.

This is a chance to share your success stories, discuss your techniques,
or even document technical and social obstacles you are facing.  The
workshop brings together experts who are dedicated to make dynamic
and late binding approaches to software development succeed in the
marketplace, and there is no better forum for you to engage in a public
dialog on the use of Dynamic Objects and Late Binding languages today.

The DOW96 workshop also replaces the traditional LUV conference
presentation sessions [http://www.cs.rochester.edu/u/miller/alu.html],
and features a STUDENT SUBMISSION CONTEST. DOW96 is offered as part of
the Dynamic Objects Event [http://www.omg.org/ow/cbcoloc.htm], a new
collocated with Object World East [http://www.omg.org/ow/cbcover.htm].

SCOPE AND CONTENT.  Material in papers must clearly demonstrate a
 practical value from the use of dynamic objects and/or late bindings;
 as such, papers need not be especially innovative or original.  Direct 
 and simple applications of dynamic language features to rapidly and
 effectively solve practical problems will be noticed. Preference will
 be given to previously undisseminated reports or experiences. Topics in
 the area of programming languages and environments are welcome. These
 include programming with multiple paradigms, generation of domain
 languages, integration with foreign languages, objects distribution,
 distributed objects recycling, persistent object storages and

 Specific application examples are welcome including issues on software
 design and architecture, product delivery, realtime, small platforms, 
 graphical user interfaces, interface builders, CLIM and portability.
 Untested or purely theoretical examples must clearly demonstrate
 of one or more specific aspects of dynamism to solve otherwise
 problems (for example, use of dynamic updates to class hierarchies and
 dynamic changes to multimethods to adapt to evolving exchange protocols
 in live distributed systems, distributed objects recycling approaches
 applied to improve software reliability in distributed systems).

 copyright themselves if they wish by installing their own copyright
 notice in the paper. Previously copyrighted material may still be
 published depending on the permission to publish; in this case, the
 previous copyright and notice of permission should appear in the paper.

 or might not also be distributed in some other fashion after the
 The authors of certain selected papers will be invited to make a
 20-minute verbal presentation at the technical talks sessions during 
 the workshop.  (Time constraints might prevent the verbal presentation
 of some accepted papers.)
