       Second International Workshop on Component-Oriented Programming
                       (in conjunction with ECOOP'97)

WCOP'97 seeks position papers on the important field of component-oriented
programming (COP). WCOP'97 is the follow-up event to the successful WCOP'96,
which took place in conjunction with ECOOP'96. COP has been described as the
natural extension of object-oriented programming to the realm of
independently extensible systems. The most prominent examples of such
systems are constructed around compound document models such as OLE,
OpenDoc, JavaBeans, or Netscape ONE and rest on object models such as
SOM/CORBA, COM or Java's virtual machine. WCOP'97 shall address their
methodological and theoretical underpinnings.

COP aims at producing software components for a component market and for
late composition. Composers are third parties, possibly the end user, who
are not able or willing to change components. This requires standards to
allow independently created components to interoperate, and specifications
that put the composer into the position to decide what can be composed under
which conditions. These needs raise open research questions like what kind
of standards are needed and how they should be defined. Or what information
specifications need to give, how this information should be provided, and
how correct implementation and usage of specifications could be verified or
enforced.

Topics of interest to WCOP'97 include, but are not limited to:

   * enabling technology for composition of independently created components
   * specification, verification, validation, and testing of components
   * domain-specific standards for component interoperability
   * dependencies between components such as other components required for
     proper function
   * dynamic changes in the configuration (set of components in a system):
     how can components be added, replaced and removed and how can other
     components reconfigure themselves to cope with this
   * adaptation of components and composition of frameworks
   * programming language support for COP
   * performance/efficiency of component-oriented implementations
   * user interface of components, user interfaces for composition
   * "decomposition" (partitioning) of legacy software
   * impact of businesses on components and vice versa, packaging and
     distribution of components

To enable lively and productive discussions, attendance will be limited to
20 participants and submission of a position statement is required. All
submissions will be formally reviewed. High-quality position statements will
be considered for publication in conjunction with transcripts of workshop
results in a special volume of the TUCS General Publications Series. (The
final version has to be typeset in LaTeX.) Authors of accepted papers need to
participate in the workshop.

Position statements should clearly state how they relate to the workshop
theme, what particular problems they address, what solutions they envisage,
and why the statement is expected to be relevant to both this workshop and
the community. Statements should be four to eight pages (single-spaced A4)
long and state the author's name, affiliation, and contact. Submission via
e-mail (plain ASCII or standard postscript) to Prof. Jan Bosch is strongly
recommended.

Important Dates:

   * Paper submissions: 18 April, 1997
   * Notification of acceptance: 16 May, 1997
   * Workshop handouts ready: 30 May, 1997
