ACM Proceedings

This year, for the first time at ECOOP, workshop proceedings will be published in the ACM digital library.


Distributed Objects for the 21st Century (DO21) is a new Workshop, co-located with the 23rd European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming in Genova, Italy. The workshop will take place July 7th, the day preceding the main conference.
