There is increasing agreement among IT researchers and practioners about
the importance, potential and advances of distributed object systems made in
recent years. These systems offer many promises for their use in various
applications, including telecommunications and more recently banking
applications. Distributed object systems offer solutions to technical
problems, including interoperability across different software and database
platforms. Distributed object systems are built according to different
paradigms and architectures, such as OMG's CORBA and other object request
broker principles and implementations, and contingent technologies such
as SUN's Java and Microsoft's active objects, to provide a basis for
building complex distributed applications.

The future success of distributed object systems will be not only dependent
on how the basic requirements (to develop open, scalable and reliable
distributed and heterogeneous applications and platforms) are met but also
how the underlying distributed object technology can be integrated with
existing complementary technologies and applications, such as WWW, multimedia
and databases. Also legacy systems may sometimes substantially benefit from
a reengineering effort using distributed objects, e.g. to turn them into data

During this symposium we want attendees to be able to evaluate existing ORB
middleware products; to propose solutions to major limitations of existing
products; and to introduce promising future research directions for
distributed objects. We are particularly interested in the evaluation of
existing distributed object systems and how they are used to design and to
implement large scale industrial distributed applications. We are also
seeking theoretical and practical papers addressing innovating issues related
to distributed objects.


The topics of this symposium include, but are not limited to:
        . Distributed business objects
        . Distributed and mobile agents
        . Design patterns for distributed object design
        . Database services, in particular, persistency, transaction, query
          and replication services
        . Intelligent traders
        . Interoperability supporting environments
        . Integration with database systems and interfaces
        . Methodologies to develop distributed object applications,
          to reintegrate legacy systems, and to design CORBA-based applications
        . Multimedia distributed objects
        . Multicast protocols for distributed objects
        . Object caching
        . Reliability, fault-tolerance and recovery
        . Real-time ORB middleware
        . Security
        . Specification and enforcement of quality of service
        . Wrapper libraries and wrapper implementation strategies

In order to maximise the benefits of co-location with VLDB'98,
authors are asked to give particular emphasis to issues relating to
the deployment of distributed object technology in the provision
and utilisation of database systems.
