The early registration deadline for the AOSD  conference has been 
pushed back to 12 Feb 2005. Because of this, the FOAL organizers have 
decided to extend the workshop submittal deadline. Papers are now due 
on Friday, 21 Jan. 2005. Please see the updated call for papers below 
for more information on contributing to FOAL 2005.

   FOAL: Foundations of Aspect-Oriented Languages

     A one day workshop affiliated with AOSD 2005 in Chicago, USA, on 
     14 March 2005.

   Themes and Goals

    FOAL is a forum for research in foundations of aspect-oriented
    programming languages. Areas of interest include but are not limited
      * Semantics of aspect-oriented languages
      * Specification and verification for such languages
      * Type systems
      * Static analysis
      * Theory of testing
      * Theory of aspect composition
      * Theory of aspect translation (compilation) and rewriting

    The workshop aims to foster work in foundations, including formal
    studies, promote the exchange of ideas, and encourage workers in the
    semantics and formal methods communities to do research in the area 
    aspect-oriented programming languages. All theoretical and
    foundational studies of this topic are welcome.

    The goals of FOAL are to:
      * Make progress on the foundations of aspect-oriented programming
      * Exchange ideas about semantics and formal methods for
        aspect-oriented programming languages.
      * Foster interest within the programming language theory and types
        communities in aspect-oriented programming languages.
      * Foster interest within the formal methods community in
        aspect-oriented programming and the problems of reasoning about
        aspect-oriented programs.

   Workshop Format

    The planned workshop format is primarily presentation of papers and
    group discussion. Talks will come in three categories: long (30
    minutes plus 15 minutes of discussion), short (20 minutes plus 5
    minutes of discussion) and very short (7 minutes plus 3 minutes of
    discussion). The very short talks will allow for short presentations
    of topics for which results are not yet available, perhaps for
    researchers who are seeking feedback on ideas or seek collaborations.

    We also plan to ensure sufficient time for discussion of each
    presentation by limiting the number of long talks and having only a
    few short talks.


    Invitation to the workshop will be based on papers selected by the
    program committee; those wishing to attend but not having a paper to
    submit should contact the organizers directly to see if there is
    sufficient space in the workshop.

    FOAL solicits full-length, short, and very short papers on all areas
    of formal foundations of AOP languages. Submissions will be read by
    the program committee and designated reviewers. Papers will be
    selected for long, short, and very short presentation at the workshop
    based on their length, scientific merit, innovation, readability, and
    relevance. Papers previously published or already being reviewed by
    another conference are not eligible. Some papers may not be selected
    for presentation, and some may be selected for presentation in 
    talks than their paper length would otherwise command. We will limit
    the length of paper presentations and the number of papers presented
    to make sure that there is enough time for discussion.

    Papers presented at the workshop will be included in a technical
    report (from Iowa State University). Authors will retain their own
    copyright to the papers. Publication of papers at other venues will
    thus remain possible. We will also investigate having a special issue
    of a journal for revisions of selected papers after the workshop.

    Authors should note the following details:
      * Submissions are due no later than 23:00 GMT, Friday, 21 January
        2005. This deadline was extended because of the extended early
        registration period for AOSD, however the new deadline is firm.
      * Authors must indicate whether they wish to be considered for a
        long, short, or very short presentation.
      * Papers for long presentations must not exceed 10 pages in length;
        those for short presentations must not exceed 5 pages in length,
        and those for very short presentations must not exceed 3 pages in
      * Some papers may not be selected for presentation, and some may be
        selected for presentation in shorter talks than requested.
      * We encourage use of the ACM Conference format for submissions,
        as this will be required for accepted papers. You must add page
        numbers (which are not part of the standard format) to your
        submissions, to make adding comments easier.
      * Submissions are to be sent as PDF (preferred) or postscript
        attachments in an email to Curtis Clifton, cclifton -at- cs -dot-
        iastate -dot- edu.

    We will notify the corresponding author of papers that are selected
    for presentation at the workshop by 10 February 2005. The early
    registration deadline for AOSD will be 12 February 2005. FOAL
    attendees must be registered for AOSD. Final versions of papers for
    the proceedings will be due on 1 March 2005.
