I was very interested to read your presentation, especially drawing links
with Brian Smith's OOO. I'd agree that AOP is in need of some stronger
conceptual foundations, but wasn't quite sure what such an account would
Could you give an example of the kind of research analysis you mention that
OO has had since the 90s -- specific papers or books if possible?

- some ideas for a solid foundation for the field might be found
in Brian Smith's "On the Origin of Objects"
The slides are at:
They will shortly be on the AOSD conference website as well.
I should note that I was talking about a really solid conceptual
account for the field. By that I mean the kind of research analysis
we didn't have for objects until the 90s. (Some would argue we still
don't have it today.) None of my comments mean we are not in a
position to continue to develop and deploy practical AOSD mechanisms!
AOSD technology will continue to be easier to deploy and adopt than
OOP technology was.
