**** What's oopsla up to?

The leading forum for innovative and thought-provoking ideas in
object-oriented programming for 21 years, oopsla is taking on today's
software challenges, attracting people interested in topics like:

   * programmer productivity
   * secure and reliable software
   * changing hardware platforms
   * ultra-large scale systems

oopsla is the premier conference for publishing state of the art research,
seeking comment on works in progress, for sharing practical experiences,
(frequently, we're proud to say) for presenting Turing Award lectures on
significant works. It is where industry experts and their academic peers
gather to

   * improve programming languages
   * refine the practice of software development
   * explore new paradigms

Through collaboration, diversity, and incubation we are overcoming the
challenges facing the software industry.

**** The conference isn't until October, what's happening now?

Right now we're looking for submissions. Visit
http://www.oopsla.org/2007/submissions to see how you can contribute.

All year long the conference committee works hard to organize the program.
People like you — developers, researchers, industry experts, and academics
from around the world — contribute most of the content. Contributing
tremendous satisfaction and pride in sharing your knowledge and insight. A
bonus is the chance to meet a like (or unlike) mind who's worked on similar
problems, providing an opportunity for feedback and brainstorming solutions
to sticky problems.

Contribute to oopsla and you will be enriched as you enrich the world of
