The Rexx Language Association invites you to participate in the 2008 International Rexx Symposium. This four-day technical conference will address topics related to the Rexx family of programming languages: Classic Rexx, NetRexx, and Open Object Rexx. Your knowledge and experience will be welcome, and may take the form of a presentation or a formal paper.
The International Rexx Symposium is the only technical conference dedicated to the Rexx family of programming languages, drawing speakers and attendees from around the world.
The technical program will feature topics addressing Rexx solutions to business problems, application development challenges, Rexx language enhancements and extensions, novel Rexx programming ideas, and the design and implementation of Rexx interpreters and compilers.
The full range of Rexx platforms and environments will be represented, from the mainframe to the desktop to the PDA/phone, and from legacy operating systems to Linux to Java.
Attendees will range from those who are relatively new to Rexx to authors of Rexx language processors and texts. Presentations are requested at all audience levels.
The Sunday before the Symposium (27 April 2008) will be dedicated to informal tutorials, followed by a social reception. Proposals for the two- to four-hour tutorial presentations are also solicited.
Sessions are one hour long, but alternative durations can be accommodated on request. Speakers should allow ample time for questions and demonstrations.
Presentation and formal paper proposals must be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org and received by 4 April 2008 to be considered. Submittors will be notified of acceptance by 7 April 2008 via email.
In order to be included in The Proceedings of the Rexx Symposium for Developers and Users(ISSN 1534-8954), a publication-ready version of the presentation or paper (preferably in PDF) must be received by 28 April 2008.
