                              CALL FOR PAPERS

Generic programming is about making programs more adaptable by making them
more general. Generic programs often embody non-traditional kinds of
polymorphism; ordinary programs are obtained from them by suitably
instantiating their parameters. In contrast with normal programs, the
parameters of a generic programs are often quite rich in structure. For
example they may be other programs, types or type constructors, class
hierarchies, or even programming paradigms.

Generic programming techniques have always been of interest, both to
practitioners and to theoreticians, but only recently have generic
programming techniques become a specific focus of research in the
functional and object-oriented programming language communities. This
working conference will bring together leading researchers in generic
programming from around the world, and feature papers capturing the state
of the art in this important emerging area.

We welcome contributions on all aspects, theoretical as well as practical,
of generic programming, aspect-oriented programming, polytypic programming,
adaptive object-oriented programming, generic components, and so on.
