OOPSLA 2006 Features Panel on Object Databases
ODBMS.ORG, the Internet's most up-to-date educational and research portal on object
database technology, today announced that its expert
William R. Cook will chair a panel on "Objects and Databases - State of the
Union" at the
OOPSLA 2006 conference in Portland, OR (USA).
The panelists are:
- William Cook (Moderator),
University of Texas at Austin
- Robert Greene, Versant
- Patrick Linskey, BEA
- Erik Meijer, Microsoft
- Ken Rugg, Progress Software
- Craig Russell,
- Bob Walker, GemStone Systems
- Christof Wittig, db4objects
All panelists have provided a
mission statement which is available for free download as PDF, together with
the panel's abstract.
Being the first high profile panel related to object database technology for many
years, the event underlines the growing importance of solutions to handle the object-relational
mismatch. It helps software managers and developers to understand, what role object
databases play in today's OO programming environments and how key players in the
industry think about objects and databases.
ODBMS.ORG, whose experts and sponsors have helped to pull the panel together, will
cover the event by publishing a podcast and transcripts of the discussion for reference
in the Internet.
The panel takes place on Tuesday, October 24, 2006 from 10:30am to 12:00pm. Further
