OO has become ubiquitously employed for design, implementation and
even conceptualization, many practitioners recognize the concomitant
need for other programming paradigms according to problem domain.
Nevertheless, the choice of a programming paradigm is strongly in
uenced by the supporting programming language facilities. In turn,
choice of programming language is usually a practical matter; one
cannot generally afford to use a language not in the mainstream.
We seek answers to the question of how to address the need for other
programming paradigms in the general context of OO languages.
Can OO programming languages effectively support other programming
paradigms? The tentative answer seems to be affirmative, at least
for some paradigms; for example, significant progress has been made
for the case of (higher order, polymorphic) functional programming
This workshop seeks to bring together practitioners and researchers
in this emerging field to compare notes on their workdescribe
existing, developing, or proposed techniques, idioms, methodologies,
language extensions, or software for expressing non-OO paradigms
in OO languages; or theoretical work supporting or defining the
same. Work-in-progress reports are welcomed.
