 Call for Participation: Reflection 96

                        Call for Participation

                            Reflection 96

                          April 21-23, 1996
                San Francisco Hilton Hotel and Towers
                   San Francisco, California, U.S.A

Over the last 15 years, the topic of Reflection and Meta-Level
Architectures has attracted increasing attention from researchers
throughout computer science.  

Reflection '96 will provide a forum for researchers and developers to
hear about the latest advances in reflective systems.  Presented papers
will address problems in such areas as programming languages, operating
systems, databases, and distributed computing.  In addition to paper
presentations and invited talks, time will be reserved for intensive
discussions on topics ranging from conceptual foundations to practical

The technical program of the conference has been organized so that
people new to the topic of reflection will not be lost.  The program
begins with tutorial papers that provide a gentle introduction and
survey of the basic concepts.  In addition to a range of excellent
papers that present the state of the art, it also includes a panel which
will discuss the design of reflective systems.

We invite you to participate!
