On the first day of the conference, Monday the 22nd, we have the official reception of the conference. This will take place in the Faculty Club of the department. The reception includes cold (tapas style) food and drinks. You are all welcome to the reception!

Conference Dinner

The official Conference Dinner will take place on the third day of the conference, Wednesday the 24th, in the Gamle Logen. This is a kind of historic place where many official events take place like the Abel prize (equivalent, at least in money, with the Nobel prize) ceremony for mathematics, normally headed by the King of Norway; or anniversary celebration of King's birthday; or special artistic performances by renowned artists such as Edvard Grieg, Ole Bull, Louis Armstrong, or Duke Ellington.

The dinner starts at 19:00.

The Gamle Logen is located down-town, near the harbour; see the location on the map.

If one needs to take the metro then you should get off at the Stortinget station. Get out on one of the many exits and ask someone for the direction to the Cathedral. Once reaching the cathedral, the map shows that you need to take the street Kirkegata (The street of the church) in the direction of the water. Walk the street about 10-15 min until the end. Gamle Logen should be on your left with some kind of small park in front.

Please have your dinner invitation with you, for the person at the door.


There will be an organized excursion in the afternoon of the second day, Tuesday the 23rd.

The excursion will start at 14:00 (after lunch). There will be a bus with guide taking us to major sightseeing attractions in Oslo (these include the Holmenkolen ski jump, Vigeland sculpture park, Vikingship museum, and the centre with the town hall or the castle). The tour will last for about 3 hours. The bus will pick up the FCT participants in the parking lot outside the building where FCT takes place (you cannot miss it).

Scientific Opening of the Ole-Johan Dahl building of the Department

On the first half of the Monday 22nd will take place the Scientific Opening of the new building of the UiO's Department of Informatics, named after the object-oriented programming pioneer Ole-Johan Dahl. FCT is honored that the scientific opening is arranged at the beginning of the FCT symposium, so FCT participants are more than welcome to participate as well.

This event is open to anybody and is organized by the Department of Informatics. It takes place in the Simula auditorium. The two invited talks and the discussion panel are intended to be more general about object-orientation and programming languages, i.e., not too technical.

The program of the Scientific Opening of the Ole-Johan Dahl building is the following:

9:00 - 9:15Introduction by Head of Dept.
Morten Dæhlen
9:15 - 10:15Invited talk
Andrew P. Black (Portland State University, USA)
Title: "Object-oriented programming: challenges for the next fifty years"
10:15 - 10:45Coffee break (for everybody)
10:45 - 11:45Invited talk
Jose Meseguer (U. Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA)
Title: "Objects and Formal Methods"
11:45 - 12:45Discussion panel on the future of Object-Orientation and programming languages
(with Andrew P. Black, Yuri Gurevich, Eric Jul, Jose Meseguer, Olaf Owe)
12:45 - 14:00Lunch (for registered people only)
