Announcement and Call for Submissions


Special Track on Distributed Object Oriented Computing
at the Object World Frankfurt '96
Focusing on Telecommunications

Sheraton Airport Hotel, Frankfurt Germany, October 11th 1996

Objectives and Scope

A major trend in the currently forming information society is that the
computer and telecommunications industries are converging.
Telecommunication builds the backbone of the upcoming information society,
and is a key component that serves for the solution of global issues. The
telecommunications industry is using ever more information systems to
provide flexible, high quality future telecommunication services.
The object oriented programming paradigm has been accepted by scientists
and engineers, as the mean to provide the solutions to the software
complexities of the present and the future.
One of the major areas of interest is distributed application integration
employing advanced distributed object oriented techniques.
There exist some promising approaches based on and incorporating emerging
standards, like Open Distributed Processing (ODP), the Common Object Request
Broker Architecture (CORBA) of the Object Management Group (OMG). and the
Telecommunications Information Networking Architecture (TINA-C) initiative.
The aim of DOOC '96 is to provide a forum for end users, application
designers and service providers for presenting their experiences of applying
distributed object oriented computing in their organisations and discussing 
the latest research and development results with respect to provide solutions
for the end users needs.
The focus of this special conference track will be in the introduction, and
deployment of distributed object computing in telecommunication. Special
attention will be given to the discussion of the current status of ongoing
work within the european telecommunication providers with the computer
industry and the telecommunication equipment vendors.

Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

Experiences with distributed object oriented computing
Advanced development projects applying distributed object oriented computing
Distributed object oriented computing in telecommunications and 
office automation
Technological and organizational aspects of migration from current systems
Management of distributed applications
Applications of personal communication systems
Configuration management

Structure of the Special track

DOOC '96 will be held during the Object World Frankfurt '96 in parallel to
the other tracks on the 11th October 1995. 
Full papers (max. 10 pages) will belong to the technical sessions of the
conference and must be presented by the author(s). You are also invited
to submit positional statements or abstracts focusing on practical work
or ongoing projects (max. 3 pages). Accepted papers and positional
statements will be published in the conference proceedings.

All submissions should be sent online (postscript or ASCII-text) to
the following e-mail address:
