Workshop Description

The search for sound principles for object-oriented languages has
given rise to much work during the past two decades, leading to a
better understanding of the key concepts of object-oriented languages
and to important developments in type theory, semantics, program
verification, and program development.  FOOL became FOOL/WOOD in 2006,
joining forces with the Workshop on Object-Oriented Developments.
FOOL has traditionally co-located with the POPL conference, but this
year we are trying something new, co-locating with SPLASH/OOPSLA.
FOOL'10 will be held in Reno, Nevada, USA on Sunday, 17 October 2010,
during the workshop days at the beginning of SPLASH.

Submissions for this event are invited in the general area of
foundations of object-oriented languages and program analysis. Topics
of interest include language semantics, type systems, program analysis
and verification, formal calculi, concurrent and distributed
languages, database languages, and language-based security issues.

Papers are welcome to include formal descriptions and proofs, but
these are not required; the key consideration is that papers should
present novel and valuable ideas or experiences. The main focus in
selecting workshop contributions will be the intrinsic interest and
timeliness of the work, so authors are encouraged to submit polished
descriptions of work in progress as well as papers describing
completed projects.

A web page will be created and made available as an informal
electronic proceedings. Historically, presentation at FOOL (or
FOOL/WOOD) does not count as prior publication, and many of the
results presented at FOOL have later been published at ECOOP, OOPSLA,
POPL, and other conferences.

Submission Instructions

We solicit submissions on original research not previously published
or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The program chair
should be informed of any related submissions; see the ACM SIGPLAN
Republication Policy
Submissions should be PDF or PostScript in standard SIGPLAN 9pt
conference format for a US-letter size page. Templates are available

 http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm .

While submissions can be up to 12 pages, shorter papers describing
promising preliminary work are also encouraged.  More detailed
submission instructions will be announced on the workshop web site at
