Presentation: "The Scandinavian School of Object-Orientation - in memory of Ole-Johan Dahl and Kristen Nygaard"

Monday 17:15 - 18:00, Conference Hall

Ole-Johan Dahl and Kristen Nygaard - the founders of object-oriented programming - have passed away in the summer 2002 with just a few weeks in between. The software community has lost two great pioneers that through their collaboration in the nineteen-sixties leading to the Simula language and object-oriented programming have had enormous influence on software technology. For their work they were given the A.M. Turing Award, which is considered the Nobel Prize of computer science:

"The Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) has presented the 2001 A.M. Turing Award, considered the 'Nobel Prize of Computing,' to Ole-Johan Dahl and Kristen Nygaard of Norway for their role in the invention of object-oriented programming, the most widely used programming model today." (From ACM press release on February 6, 2002)

Kristen Nygaard was supposed to give his Turing award lecture at OOPSLA 2002 where he would have talked about The Development of the Key Object-Oriented Concepts.

Simula contributed constructs such as object, class, subclass, virtual entity, active object and the first example of an application framework. Simula was originally designed as a simulation language, with the purpose of supporting analysis of large and complex systems. This had the impact that modelling capabilities of languages always have been central to the Scandinavian School of Object-Orientation.

This talk is based on a talk given by Ole Lehrmann Madsen at OOPSLA 2002 instead of the Kristen Nygaards planned Turing Award lecture. In the talk a long term collaborator of Kristen Nygaard will present the main contributions of Simula and further development of object-oriented programming made through more than 25 years of collaboration with Nygaard.
