ECOOP '95 - Object-Oriented Programming: 9th European Conference, Aarhus, Denmark, August 7 - 11, 1995. Proceedings by Volume editor Walter Olthoff
For the ninth time now, the European Conference on Object-Oriented P- gramming provides a mid-summer gathering place for researchers, practitioners, students and newcomers in the field of object technology. Despite fierce c- petition from an increasing number of attractive conferences on object-related topics, ECOOP has successfully positioned itself as the premier European - ject technology conference. One reason is without doubt the composition of the conference week and the nature of its events. Running in parallel on the first two days, a comprehensive tutorial program and a very selective workshop program are offered to attendees. This is followed by a three-day technical p- gram organized in a single track providing a highly communicative atmosphere of scientific exchange and learning. Overlapping with these events are a two-day industrial exhibition and a two-day opportunity for non-industrial system dev- opers to demonstrate their software. Thus, ECOOP is not just a conference on programming but an event touching on the full spectrum of object technology. This volume constitutes the proceedings of the Ninth European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming, ECOOP, held in Aarhus, Denmark, August 7-11, 1995. Previous ECOOP conferences were held in Paris (France), Oslo (Norway), Nottingham (England), Ottawa (Canada, jointly with OOPSLA) , Geneva (Switzerland), Utrecht (the Netherlands) , Kaiserslautern (Germany) , and Bologna (Italy). Object technology continues to increase its impact on the corporate world.
