                 C++, Boost, and the Future of C++ Libraries
                 Workshop at OOPSLA
                 October 24-28, 2004
                 Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada


Each participant will be expected to develop a position paper
describing a particular library or category of libraries that is
lacking in the current C++ standard library and Boost. The participant
should explain why the library or libraries would advance the state of
C++ programming. Ideally, the paper should sketch the proposed library
interface and concepts. This will be a unique opportunity to critique
and review library proposals. Alternatively, a participant might
describe the strengths and weaknesses of existing libraries and how
they might be modified to fill the need.

Form of Submissions

Submissions should consist of a 3-10 page paper that gives at least the
motivation for and an informal description of the proposal. This may be
augmented by source or other documentation of the proposed libraries,
if available. Preferred form of submission is a PDF file.
