Operating System Support, Security and Programming Languages

9.00 - 18.00, Tuesday June 13, Sophia Antipolis, France.

In association with the 14th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP 2000)
Cannes, France.

Code and program mobility has become a fundamental element of Internet programming, as seen from its use in application models such as active networking and network computing. The object-oriented community has been to the forefront of mobility, with technologies like Emerald through to Java. Despite this success, hard questions remain, notably with respect to security, efficient operating system support and mobile object application design and programming techniques.

The ECOOP Workshop On Mobile Object Systems was first held in 1995, and has been held every year since. Its goal has been to bring together researchers and practitioners working on mobility. Recent editions of the workshop have treated operating system support (1997), security (1998) and programming languages (1999). This year's workshop is broadened in scope to include all of these topics. Our primary aim is to foster discussion between researchers working in these three intrinsically linked areas. We are also interested in proposals that treat aspects of mobile objects that have received relatively little attention, e.g., operating system support for state capture mechanisms, resource control for security, and agent program development techniques.
