Dear Oberon/Aos users, dear readers,

the ETH Zurich organizes an Oberon Day, which will take place soon, at 
June 29, 2007 in Zurich. This year the Oberon day is directed towards
implementation in industry and promises to be a very interesting event.
Everybody is highly welcome to participate. We are very much looking
forward to meeting you all here!

Welcome to the Oberon Day 2007!
The Oberon Day welcomes delegates from industry and academia who are
interested in developing highest quality software in terms of
reliability, safety and efficiency. Participants will get an insight
into highly advanced custom systems that have emerged from the long-term
collaboration of experts from science and industry. The Oberon Day is,
in particular, a platform where Oberon users and developers can share
their experiences.
A series of talks discuss custom-made applications based on Oberon and
its successors, provide a glance behind the scenes, demonstrate the
power of simplicity and exemplify the benefits of custom-made software.
Live demonstrations will be presented. Technical engineers and everybody
else interested in a unique symbiosis of programming language, compiler
and runtime system will particularly benefit from attending this event.

About Oberon
Oberon is the name of both a programming language in the tradition
of Pascal/Modula-2 and a lean multi-tasking operating system. The Oberon
project was launched in 1985 by Prof. em. Niklaus Wirth and Prof. Jürg
Gutknecht at the Institute of Computer Systems at ETH Zurich and is
still subject to active further development in different forward-looking
directions. Oberon – both language and system – combines the
effectiveness and safety of programming on a high abstraction level with
the efficiency of optimized machine code. Oberon is used in various
fields both in industry and scientific research.
