The Fifth International Workshop on Foundations of Object-Oriented Languages


January 17-18, 1998

San Diego, California, USA

Preceding POPL '98

The search for sound foundations for object-oriented languages has driven a variety of work in the theory of programming languages during the past decade, leading to a better understanding of the key concepts of object-oriented languages and to important developments in type theory, semantics, and program verification. The FOOL workshops bring together researchers to share new ideas and results.

FOOL 5 is a one and a half day workshop which will take place all day on Saturday, January 17, 1998, and the morning of Sunday, January 18, 1998. The program will consist of both contributed papers and invited lectures. An up-to-date copy of the program can be found through
