 Reflection '96 (Call for Papers)

                            CALL FOR PAPERS
                        Reflection'96 Conference
                       San Francisco, California
                           April 21-23, 1996

Over the last 15 years, the topic of Reflection and Meta-Level
Architectures has attracted increasing attention from researchers
throughout computer science.  Reflective and meta-level techniques have
matured to the point where they are being used to address real-world
problems in such areas as programming languages, operating systems,
databases, and distributed computing.

This conference will provide an opportunity for researchers with a broad
range of interests in reflective techniques to discuss recent
developments in this field.  It will also provide an opportunity for
researchers to discuss their work with colleagues from other parts of
computing.  The conference aims not only at advances within the field of
reflection, but also seeks to bridge related developments in other
fields of computer science using reflection as the binding theme.

In addition to paper presentations, a strong program of panels and
invited presentations will dicuss issues including conceptual
foundations, practical applications, recent developments and upcoming
challenges and opportunities for reflection.

Papers will be accepted on topics including, but not limited to, the

  Conceptual and theoretical foundations of reflection
   reflective programming languages
   languages to support reflective systems
   implementation techniques
   reflective database languages
   metaobject protocols
   applications to
     operating systems
     window systems
     collaborative systems
   reflective programming methodologies and environments
   AI and knowledge-based systems
   logic programming

    Because reflection, like object-oriented programming,
    modularity and data abstraction is a basic technique that
    many people have ``invented for themselves'' we  solicit
    papers that analyze and re-present existing systems in the
    conceptual framework of reflection.

    Because work on reflection has spanned a wide range of
    the computing community, including programming languages,
    AI and logic, we invite contributions that draw connections
    across this span.

Papers will be reviewed by the program committee; acceptance will be
based on depth, quality, relevance, and scope.  Accepted papers will be
published in the conference proceedings.  In addition to the
proceedings, a book will be published after the conference consisting of
those papers that are of the highest technical and/or tutorial
significance, and that best represent the current state of the art.
