                     1995 INTERNATIONAL WORKSHOP ON
                 I-WOOOS '95

                       University of Lund, Sweden
                 August 14-15th, 1995

                  Sponsored by
        The IEEE Technical Committee on Operating Systems
         and Application Environments (TCOS)
             in cooperation with
  the Association Internationale pour les Technologies Objets (AITO)

The fourth International Workshop on Object-Orientation in Operating
Systems will bring together researchers and practioners who are
interested in object-oriented approaches to operating systems design,
development, and application support.  The purpose of the workshop is
to provide an informal format and atmosphere in which ideas and
current work can be presented and discussed at length.  The workshop
is designed to encourage the full participation of each attendee: both
presenters and participants will be active contributors throughout the

This year's workshop will be held in Lund, Sweden, closely following
the European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming (ECOOP), which
will be held in Aarhus, Denmark from August 7-11.  We hope that the
conjunction of the two events will foster cross-fertilization between
related research communities.  Consequently we would like to invite
people (anyone, not just ECOOP attendees) to attend IWOOOS without
requiring them to submit a paper to the workshop.  However, to
encourage cross-fertilization, we would like to request that
interested attendees submit a very short (one-half to one page long)
position statement that expresses their interests and how they see
object-orientation in operating systems potentially interacting with
those interests.  Position statements may be submitted via email to
theimer@parc.xerox.com and should be sent in before August 1st.

Enclosed below are the following items:
- the advanced program for the workshop,
- a list of the IWOOOS organizing and program committees,
- registration information (NOTE that early registration ends July 26th)
- hotel information (NOTE that discount rates must be booked before July 13th)
