You're invited to contribute and actively participate in OOPSLA 2004,
to be held in Vancouver, British Columbia, October 24-28, 2004. As
past participants can attest, OOPSLA is widely recognized as the
premier gathering of practitioners, researchers, educators, and
students sharing their thoughts and experiences with object technology
and its offshoots.

OOPSLA offers many venues for your participation, including technical
papers, practitioner reports, expert panels, stimulating invited
talks, demonstrations, exhibits, posters, participant-led workshops,
conferences-within-a-conference (one designed for educators and a
second for doctoral students), informal "birds-of-a-feather" sessions,
and plenty of social opportunities for networking (or just mingling).
