The fifth workshop on Mobile Object Systems (MOS'99) will address fundamental principles in the definition, analysis and implementation of languages and models for distributed programming, with particular emphasis on languages and calculi for wide-area mobile systems.
In the last few years work on a number of languages and systems such as Telescript, Obliq, Aglets and Java has investigated practical aspects of constructing distributed systems based on the notion of mobile computations. Semantic models for mobility have also begun to appear recently, including models such as the Join and Ambient Calculi, Nomadic Pict, the Seal calculus and Dpi. These account for some of the features found in practical systems and can inform new designs, but are far from providing a complete theory; there should be fruitful interaction between the communities.
The workshop aims to bring together researchers in language implementation and semantics to discuss issues related to distributed programming languages, including:
