Workshop #07 - Seventh International Workshop on Component-Oriented Programming (WCOP 2002)

WCOP 2002 seeks position papers on the important field of component-oriented programming (COP). WCOP 2002 is the seventh event in a series of highly successful workshops, which took place in conjunction with every ECOOP since 1996.

COP has been described as the natural extension of object-oriented programming to the realm of independently extensible systems. Several important approaches have emerged over the recent years, including CORBA/CCM, COM/COM+, JavaBeans/EJB, and most recently .NET. After WCOP’96 focused on the fundamental terminology of COP, the subsequent workshops expanded into the many related facets of component software.
WCOP 2002 shall emphasize dynamic reconfiguration of component systems, that is, the overlap between COP and dynamic architectures. Also, submissions reporting on experience with component-oriented software systems in practice are strongly encouraged, where the emphasis is on interesting lessons learned, whether the actual project was a success or a failure.

To enable lively and productive discussions, the workshop will be limited to 25 participants. Depending on the submitted position papers, the workshop will be organized into three or four subsequent mini-sessions, each initiated by a presentation of two or three selected positions and followed by discussions. Instead of splitting the workshop into task forces, it is intended to provoke lively discussion by preparing lists of critical questions and some, perhaps provocative, statements (to be used on demand).

Position papers will be formally reviewed, each by at least two independent reviewers. As an incentive for submission of high quality statements, the best position statements will be combined with transcripts of workshop results and published.
