MacHack Announces Winning Papers
The good people at MacHack have announced the winning papers that will be presented at the conference being held in June. MacHack is an annual gathering of some of the brightest minds in the Mac development community. Every conference presents a select number of papers and today's announcement includes the winning submissions. According to MacHack:

In the months preceding the conference, MacHack solicits and accepts papers on a wide variety of topics related to software development. For example, the subjects of last year's papers ranged from cross-platform development techniques, to anonymity in internet communications, to exception-handling strategies on the Macintosh, to macroscopic object architectures. Each paper accepted is published in the MacHack Conference proceedings and included on the MacHack CD. Each author gives a 50-minute presentation on his paper during the conference.

This year, the following authors beat out other submissions and will enter their papers into MacHack History.

-Andrew S. Downs, "Watching the Filesystem"

-David A. Fisher, "EASEL, A Language for Simulating Highly Distributed Systems"

-Francis Malka and Eric Forget, "eXcentrix: A Client-Server Architecture for Language Services"

-Ron Davis, "A Simple Expandable Plug-in Architecture"

-Chris Russ, "Fast Processors, Slow Hard Drives -- What's Wrong With This Picture"

-Steve Guynup, "The Lost World -- Macintosh and VRML (Virtual Reality Modeling Language)"

-Jonathan 'Wolf' Rentzsch, "Atomicity -- Concurrent Data Access Without Blowing Up"

-Doug Clarke, "AltiVec 101 - Intro to AltiVec"

These papers will premiere at the 1999 MacHack conference which occurs June 23-26 in Dearborn, MI. They will be available on the MacHack CD which will be available for purchase after the conference. The CD will also include the entries from the Best Hack Contest. Pricing for the CD has yet to be set.

{If you are interested in attending this exciting conference, you need to register. Those registering before April 15th are entered into a contest to win a Palm III. Registration information is at the MacHack web site.
