Poetry, Gears or Magic?

UBC is extremely fortunate in having recently attracted Professor Kiczales, who is a leading researcher in computer software design and engineering. Currently affiliated with the Xerox Corporation's Systems and Practices Laboratory in Palo Alto, California, Dr. Kiczales' research focus is on techniques for designing and implementing software systems that are highly flexible -- maintainable, reusable, tailorable, and reconfigurable. He has worked extensively in the area of object-oriented programming, computational reflection, and Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP). Dr. Kiczales is considered an inspiring and highly effective lecturer with the ability to make complex systems both comprehensible and fascinating to a lay audience.
