The Conference is open only to registered participants. The official language of ECOOP'98 is English.

The Registration Form should be completed (only one participant per form) and returned to the Conference Office Orga-Med. Your registration form has to be accompanied by the payment of your fee, otherwise the registration will not be processed. Please refer to the instructions for payment given below. All expenses due to bank transfer have to be covered by the conference participant. All prices are indicated in Belgian currency (BEF, approximately 1 ECU = 40 BEF; 1 $ = 37 BEF; 1 DEM = 20.6 BEF; 1 GBP = 61 BEF; 1 NLG = 18 BEF). The registrations will be confirmed by the Conference Office Orga-Med after receipt of your registration and payment. On-site registration with cash (BEF only) or credit card is also possible. This may be preferable to sending the payment very late before the conference.

Note that there is a very rich evening programme included in the conference fee. We kindly ask you to indicate on the registration form which of these events you intend to attend, so we can plan sufficient capacities.

Fee Structure

Full-time students qualify for student fees. Student registration must be accompanied by an official letter of an advisor / course instructor confirming full-time student status.

The Member fees are valid for members of the co-operating associations (ACM and AITO), who must specify the name of the association and their membership number on the registration form.

The Eastern European fees are valid for participants from former socialist countries. Any resident of one of these countries whose registration and participation at ECOOP'98 requires economic support (in addition to a reduced conference fee) is asked to send an email to ecoop98.organization@cs.vub.ac.be or write a letter to the organization before May 15 stating his or her name, address, affiliation, research interests, a short description of current research efforts and a cost estimation.

The non-member fees apply to all other participants.

Workshop Reader Including Posters and Demonstrations

Keeping up with the tradition, we will again publish an ECOOP Workshop Reader. The ECOOP'98 edition (expected to appear about half a year after the conference) will be published by Springer-Verlag as a LNCS and will collect reports about the various activities that occurred during the workshops, and from this year on, also posters and demonstrations. As such it serves as an excellent snapshot of the state-of-the-art in the field.

You can pre-order a copy of the ECOOP'98 Workshop reader on the registration form for 1450 BEF. This entails a discount of 45% over the estimated final price. The reader will then be shipped to the address on your registration form about half a year after the conference.
