12th European Conference on Object-Oriented Programming
KISS b.v. (KISSBelgium@arcadis.be) was established on the first of January 1990 by Ir. G.H.J.M. Kristen MBA and has since then fully specialized in object orientation. In the years since it was founded, KISS has carried out 250 OO-projects in different branches, such as Industry, Logistics, Construction, Government, Banking, Insurance and Telecommunication. The KISS organization currently has offices in the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Germany and Belgium and realizes an annual growth rate of about 100%.
KISS supports companies in their projects to introduce and apply object orientation in their own organization. This can be done using different OO techniques and methods, such as OMT and UML. Furthermore, KISS has developed its own OO-method, namely the KISS-method for object orientation, thus providing a solution to information system problems in the nineties.

With a headcount of 20, the Delaware Object Technology Team (DOTT) (http://www.delaware-computing.com/) is one of the major Belgium-based competence centers focussing on Object and Internet Technology. Its activities encompass both solution-minded projects and consultancy. A substantial project portfolio in areas like engineering, banking and administration is complemented with consultancy offerings like training, mentoring and specific advice on environments, design or architectures. Keywords are languages like Smalltalk and Java, a framework approach to application development, the consequent appliance of object analysis techniques and a timeboxing approach to the project life cycle. Interoperability with existing IT artifacts, emerging standards like COM and CORBA and distributed computing in general are special areas of interest. DOTT is a part of the Delaware Computing Group, a Belgium based IT organization with international subsidiaries.
