OOPSLA call for papers is out
The OOPSLA Call
for Papers is out. I'm chair of the Essays track. Here's its
Some ideas are the result of research and others of
reflection. Sometimes it takes someone sitting down and just thinking
about how things are connected, what a result really means, and how
the world really is. Some of the most impressive products of
civilization are its essays - philosophy, for example, is reflection
captured in essays. An essay presents a personal view of what is,
explores a terrain, or leads the reader in an act of discovery. Some
contributions to computing come in the form of philosophical
digressions or deep analysis. An essay captures all these - one at a
time or all at once.
Each essay will be afforded a 45-minute speaking slot and allocated
about 20 pages in the proceedings.
I've assembled a wide-ranging committee: a business school professor,
the MIT AI lab, head of the Illinois sociology department,
professors of philosophy,
sociology (again), and statistics, a
Forrester researcher, a Pragmatic Programmer, the director of the
Warren-Wilson Master of Fine Arts program, another software
consultant, and me.
As that list implies, we're looking for submissions from both those within
the software fold and those outside it. Spread the word, please.
