An International Symposium on the Interoperability of Software Systems will take place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, from 13 to 15 November 1996. It is organized by ERCIM, the European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (part of the ESPRIT Network of Excellence) and CWI, the Dutch Research Institute for Computer Science and Mathematics. The symposium is one of the many activities that are organized in 1996 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of CWI.

The purpose of the symposium is to bring together researchers and practitioners in the field of the interoperability of software systems. It will cover the design and implementation of heterogeneous, distributed systems, new paradigms for building such systems, and coordination languages. There will be a special emphasis on heterogeneity. In particular, the following issues will be examined:

- How do software components in different implementation languages and executing on different types of computers cooperate?
- What are the merits of the various proposed solutions in this field (e.g. DCE, ToolTalk, Corba, COM, etc.)?
