The PhDOOS workshop covered a wide scope, as its over 20 participants were PhD students in all areas of object orientation. The presentations covered topics such as databases, languages, software engineering and artificial intelligence, components and generative programming, analysis and design, frameworks and patterns, aspected oriented programming, distribution, and middleware. Several topics of shared interest were identified and targeted in separate discussion groups on metainformation, the success or failure of OODBMS, and a general theme on the future of object orientation. As the participants had various research interests covering practically all the OO spectrum, we can confidently state that these topics reflect actually the concerns and needs of the OO community, and emerge from its concrete needs. This document is to be complemented by a workshop proceedings document which will publish the full versions of the presented papers.
