OOPSLA'2000 Workshop Proposal

Business Object Component Design and Implementation VI: Enterprise Application Integration

Abstract

The NCITS T3 Open Distributed Processing (ODP) Technical Committee, and the Object Management Group Business Object Domain Task Force (BODTF) will jointly sponsor the Sixth Annual OOPSLA Workshop on Business Object Component Design and Implementation.

This year's focus will be on design and implementation of business object component frameworks and architectures used for enterprise application integration (EAI). Important questions are:

Goals of OOPSLA Business Object Component Workshops

Agenda

The agenda for the workshop will consist of four sessions of presentations of position papers and discussion relevant to enterprise application integration: Business Object Components, Workflow, Modeling and Framework Issues, and the User Experience. A discussion session at the end of the day will assess the state of the art of enterprise application integration using Business Object Component Design and Implementation. Position papers will be placed on the Web for review. The OOPSLA 2000 Business Object Workshop papers will be published as a book by Springer Verlag prior to the Workshop.

Submission

Prospective participants are solicited to submit a 5000-6000 word position paper or experience report, in HTML, Word or RTF format, by e-mail to jeff.sutherland@computer.org. Position papers will be placed on the Web for review. Selected Business Object Component Workshop papers may be published in a book by Springer Verlag prior to the Workshop if they are received by the Springer 31 May deadline. See Instructions for Camera Ready Copy. Papers may be submitted up to the OOPSLA deadline for presentation at the workshop and acceptance will be in accordance with the OOPSLA schedule. Papers submitted after 31 May 2000 are candidates for publication by Springer in a subsequent year's proceedings.
