Announcing

PA JAVA 2000
THE FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS AND PARTICIPATION
============================================
THE SECOND INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITON ON
THE PRACTICAL APPLICATION OF JAVA
============================================
Wednesday 12th-Friday 14th April 2000
Crowne Plaza Midland Hotel Manchester, UK

Java has become the most exciting development in the later part of
the1990s. Launched as an alternative programming language to C++/C, Java
has now matured beyond a programming language, into Java as a system.
The
reduced complexity offered to developers, support for object orientation
and a range of APIs, such as networking, security, database integration,
user interfaces and others, makes Java a good candidate for developing
applications in various domains, ranging from E-Commerce, network
management, scientific computing and education.

The objective of this conference is to bring together developers,
practitioners and researchers involved in Java based application
development, or in overcoming deficiencies in the language -- such as
execution performance, support for specialised data structures,
repeatability of numerical precision and support for real time and
embedded
systems.

APPLICATION PAPERS - APPLIED JAVA
==============================

Papers are invited in the use of Java, including but not restricted to
the
following domains:

- IN EDUCATION:
Experience reports from curriculum developers using Java as the
core programming langauge.Also, Java based applications that support
teaching and
learning, such as collaborative environments and multimedia courseware

-IN E-COMMERCE,FINANCE AND COMMERCIAL COMPUTING:
such as large scale data mining, data warehousing, product
brokering and the use of Java in trading systems

- IN SCIENTIFIC COMPUTING:
applications in Engineering, PhysicalSciences, BioInformatics and
related areas

-IN RESOURCE MANAGEMENT AND APPLICATION INTEGRATION:
component models and application development environments

-FOR REAL TIME AND EMBEDDED SYSTEMS:
JVM support on various platforms

-JINI and INTELLIGENT NETWORK MANAGEMENT

-JAVA BASED SOFTWARE ENGINEERING:
CASE tools, development environments and code generators, support
for software testing and maintainability

- GRAPHICS: Java 3D and visualisation environments

- BIOTECHNOLOGY AND MEDICINE: monitoring and instrumentation

-INTEGRATION WITH OTHER TECHNOLOGIES: such as CORBA, XML and FIPA ACL

ENABLING TECHNOLOGY PAPERS -LANGUAGE ISSUES
=====================================

-Language based Persistence Support

- Performance Improvements : JIT compilers, dynamic compilation,
improvements in RMI

-Memory Management: improved garbage collection

-Support for Specialised Data Structures

-Numeric Repeatability on Specialised Co-Processors

-Transaction Management with Jini

-Security Issues and Policies

-Support for Mobility and Thread Migration

-Support for Legacy Codes

PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
=======================

Paper submissions will be refereed by the Programme Committee. Papers
can
be of any length, up to a maximum of 20 pages. Accepted papers will
have
30 minutes to present the paper at the Conference.

Also accepted are industrial reports. This type of submission is
intended
for proffessionals, who have little time to write a full paper, but who
nevertheless would like the oppourtunity to present the benefits of
their
application at the Conference. Reports describing your application
should
be no more than 6 pages long.
Industrial reports will receive a fast track review.

These are guidelines only, but please try to address as many of the
points below as possible.

Describe the Application
=================

* Describe the problem or business issue that is addressed
* State clearly what the system does, how it is designed and how
it
works
* What are the objectives?
* How large is the application (lines of code, number of person
years
etc)?

Methods and Approach Taken
====================

* Discuss the approach and the reasons for choosing it
* What innovative methods are used to solve the problems being
addressed?

Results
=====

* Describe your results in as much detail as possible, so that
other
developers could experiment
with the approach described.
* Are the methods used successful and did they measure up to the
stated objectives?
* Did the methods used provide any new insights?
* Provide a summary of feedback from users
* If the application is experimental, evidence should be provided,
preferably using a real-life problem
* How is the system currently maintained?
* Is there a Cost-Benefit analysis to back up the success of the
work?

You may also like to consider the following
==============================

* Is there a web site where readers can get more information?
* Is there a version that can be presented to an audience?
* Are there any related articles that have been published in
magazines/journals?
* What are the future plans for the work (extensions, deployment
opportunities)?

Papers and Industrial Reports will be published in the proceedings but
note
that there will be a clear indication as to the type of submission.

In some cases revisions to submissions will be asked for by the
programme
committee. Authors are responsible for making the required revisions and
submitting the final or revised version of the paper by the due date for
the final version. Papers not meeting the revision requirements will
not be included in the Proceedings.

Papers from non English speakers are strongly encouraged, however we
would ask that your paper is proof read by a native English speaker, if
possible, before submission.
