This year's ACM conference on Object-Oriented Programming Systems, Languages, and Appliances (OOPSLA 2009) will be held in Orlando, Fla., from October 25-29. OOPSLA will provide workshops, panels, tutorials, papers, posters, and other events on a variety of topics, including cloud computing, social networking sites, and agile software development. Barbara Liskov, winner of ACM's 2008 A.M. Turing Award, will be the keynote speaker. Other speeches and presentations will be provided by the National Science Foundation's Jeannette M. Wing, Gerard Holzmann from NASA's JPL Laboratory for Reliable Software, and Wikimedia's Brion Vibber.

OOPSLA 2009 also will feature co-located events involving the International Symposium on Wikis and Open Collaboration (WikiSym), the Dynamic Languages Symposium 2009, and Onward!, a radical conference that fosters the multidisciplinarity of software development. OOPSLA workshops and panels will address software patterns and quality, architecture in an agile world, best practices for cloud computing, human aspects of software engineering, fundamental principles and interoperability requirements for domain specific languages, software engineering and architectures for real-time interactive systems, ontology-driven software engineering, and virtual machines and intermediate languages.

OOPSLA 2009 also will feature DesignFest, a day-and-a-half event intended to sharpen design skills by challenging participants to work on real-world problems with a team of fellow OOPSLA attendees. For more information, or to register, visit
