                     Second Call for Papers

The Third International Workshop on Persistence and Java will be held
at Tiburon in the San Francisco Bay Area on 1st-3rd September
1998. The workshop will be co-located with and follow the Eighth
International Workshop on Persistent Object Systems.  The two
workshops will hold a joint session on the evening of Tuesday
September 1st to encourage interaction between the two communities.

The PJW series of workshops are intended to stimulate and develop
research into all forms of persistence for the Java language.  This is
intended to include relational bindings, object-oriented database
bindings, orthogonally persistent platforms and any other viable
approach to providing persistence for Java programmers.

Attendance at PJW3 is by accepted paper and limited to 30-40 active
researchers and developers. The workshop format is designed to
encourage active debate and lively discussion.  The accepted papers
will be published as a SunLabs technical report.

Topics of interest include:

      * Implementation techniques for persistent Java systems
      * Transaction models for Java
      * Type Evolution for persistent Java systems
      * Tools for the development and maintainence of persistent Java
      * The interaction of persistence with the Java language semantics
      * Design and implementation of combinations of persistence with
        distribution (or other core class) facilities
      * Experience with real-world applications using persistence and Java
      * Comparison of persistent Java systems
      * Frameworks and techniques for evaluating the performance of
        persistent Java systems

The above list is not exclusive and all papers relevant to persistence
and Java will be considered.  We particularly hope to see the
development of measurement against realistic application activity as a
means of validating claims regarding the efficacy of reported

Papers should not normally be more than 15 pages in length when typset
in an easily read font for US 8x11 paper.  This includes figures and
bibliography. Papers should be submitted electonically in Postscript
