CALL FOR PAPERS: 2011 International Workshop on Foundations of Object-Oriented Languages (FOOL'11)

Portland, Oregon, USA, 23 October 2011
During the workshop days of SPLASH/OOPSLA


     Abstract submission: Friday, 5 August 2011
     Paper submission: Friday, 12 August 2011
     Notification: Monday, 5 September 2011
     Final version: Friday, 7 October 2011


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. The FOOL workshops bring together researchers to share new ideas and results in these areas. The next workshop, FOOL'11, will be held in Portland, Oregon, USA on Sunday, 23 October 2011, during the workshop days at the beginning of SPLASH. 
      Submissions for this event are invited in the general area of foundations of object-oriented languages, including integration with other paradigms and extensions, such as aspects, components, meta-programming. Topics of interest include language semantics, type systems, program analysis and verification, formal calculi, concurrent and distributed languages, databases, software adaptation, 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. 
      A web page will be created and made available as an informal electronic proceedings. Historically, 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.


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 (http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/republicationpolicy.htm).  Submissions should be PDF or PostScript in standard SIGPLAN 9pt conference format for a US-letter size page. Templates are available at http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm
      While submissions can be up to 12 pages, shorter papers describing promising preliminary work are also encouraged.  More detailed submission instructions are available on the workshop web site at http://www.disi.unige.it/person/ZuccaE/FOOL2011/
