Workshop October 22

The search for sound principles for object-oriented languages has
given rise to much work during the past two decades, leading to a
better understanding of the key concepts of object-oriented languages
and to important developments in type theory, semantics, program
verification, and program development.

Submissions for this event are invited in the general area of
foundations of object-oriented languages. Topics of interest include
language semantics, type systems, memory models, program verification,
formal calculi, concurrent and distributed languages, database
languages, and language-based security issues.

Papers are welcome to include formal descriptions and proofs, but
these are not required; the key consideration is that papers should
present novel and valuable ideas or experiences. The main focus in
selecting workshop contributions will be the intrinsic interest and
timeliness of the work, so authors are encouraged to submit polished
descriptions of work in progress as well as papers describing
completed projects.

We solicit submissions on original research not previously published
or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The program chair
should be informed of any related submissions; see the ACM SIGPLAN
Republication Policy. Submissions should be PDF in standard SIGPLAN
9pt conference format for a US-letter size page. While submissions can
be up to 12 pages, shorter papers describing promising preliminary
work are also encouraged. Papers must be submitted electronically via

An informal proceedings will be made publicly available on the web
page. However, presentation at FOOL does not count as prior
publication, and many of the results presented at FOOL have later been
published at ECOOP, OOPSLA, POPL, and other main conferences.
