OOPSLA 改名為 SPLASH

物件導向技術的頂尖會議 OOPSLA 從今年起改名為 SPLASH — Systems, Programming, Languages and Applications: Software for Humanity。而 OOPSLA 則成為協同舉辦的兩個會議之一。

藉著改名,SPLASH 也正式將領域擴展到其他軟體相關議題。OOPSLA 近年來已不只談物件,新名字也許是反應了這樣的趨勢。SPLASH 公式網頁說:

The future is becoming more intriguing with multicore computers, a variety of scripting and dynamic languages, ultra-large scale, new concepts for computing, and new societal, commercial, engineering, and scientific demands, to name a few things; and so SPLASH is taking on those challenges…

SPLASH 的新範疇似乎包羅萬象。程式語言領域中,POPL 公認是競爭最激烈的會議之一:此外較強調實作的有 PLDI, 偏函數語言的有 ICFP。OOPSLA 成為 SPLASH 後,會形成什麼風格,帶來什麼變化,仍有待觀察。
