ECOOP'2000 Workshop on
Reflection and Metalevel Architectures

Workshop Schedule


Over the last 15 years, Reflection and Metalevel Architectures have attracted the attention of researchers throughout computer science. Reflective and meta-level techniques have now matured to the point where they are being used to address real-world problems in such areas as: programming languages, operating systems, databases, software engineering, distributed computing, middleware, expert systems and web-computing. For example, reflective features such as separation of concerns and flexibility provide a "plug and play" environment for enabling the run-time modification of policies in middleware.

The main goal of this workshop is to address the issues arising in the definition and construction of reflective systems and to demonstrate their practical applications. To enable lively and productive discussions, prospective participants are requested to submit a 5-page short paper. Objective of this workshop is to favour a working dialogue between participants in order to improve their current work and to prepare the third international conference on Reflection and Metalevel Architectures (Reflection'01).
