                      2008 International Workshop
                Foundations of Object-Oriented Languages

                                FOOL '08
                        Sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN

                            January 13, 2008
                     San Francisco, California, USA
                           Following POPL '08

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 invited type theory, semantics, program
verification, and program development. The FOOL workshops bring
together researchers to share new ideas and results in these areas.

The next workshop, FOOL '08, will be held in San Francisco,
California, on Saturday January 13, 2008, the day after POPL '08.
Eight contributed papers will be presented, along with invited talks.

To register for the workshop, use the standard POPL registration form,
available through:


The POPL early registration deadline ends ****December 13th****.
Please make your hotel arrangements as soon as possible.

To keep down the cost of registration, we will not be providing
printed proceedings. All papers will be available online before the
workshop, so you may print the papers you wish to have on hand.
