We have recently arranged the publication of selected contributions to the workshop as a book through Springer-Verlag. To make this opportunity more widely available we have extended the deadline for the workshop until May 14. If you are interested in participating in the workshop, please contact James Noble firstname.lastname@example.org or Ivan Moore, Ivan_Moore@oti.com.

Revised Call For Participation
ECOOP' 97 Workshop #11
2nd ECOOP Workshop on Prototype-Based Object-Oriented Programming Monday 9 June Jyvaskyla, Finland
Prototypes give rise to a broad spectrum of interesting technical, conceptual and philosophical issues. Different variations of prototype-based object-oriented programming exist, as discussed in recent conference papers and panel discussions and including workshops at ECOOP and OOPSLA. In this workshop we will examine the state-of-the-art in prototype-based object-oriented programming, focusing especially on the following questions: * What are the specific advantages or niches of the prototype-based paradigm which will make or break its widespread use? * How is the prototype-based paradigm simpler to understand and use than the traditional class-based paradigm? * What ultimately distinguishes prototype-based programming from class-based programming?
*** Keynote *** Luca Cardelli will give a keynote talk on the Foundations of Object-Based Programming.
*** Publication *** Longer versions (15-20 pages) of selected papers will be published as a book by Springer-Verlag, along with selected papers from the first workshop at ECOOP'96.
*** Extended Deadline *** Potential workshop participants are requested to submit a short paper (2-5 pages) by **May 14** to the address below (e-mail in PostScript or ASCII format is strongly preferred):

Potential topics for discussion in the workshop include, but are not limited to:
- models of prototype-based programming, - experiences in implementing and using prototype-based systems, - guidelines, idioms and patterns for programming with prototypes, - analysis and design techniques for prototype-based systems, - prototype-based user interfaces. - research directions for prototype-based programming.
Attendance to the workshop will be limited to approximately 20 participants to enable fruitful discussion.
Participants reporting on experience are invited to indicate if they want to provide a short (< 15 min) demonstration or videotape to illustrate their report in the workshop.
