The contents of this volume can best be described by an excerpt from the original Call for Papers for NODe 2002. Ever evolving and increasingly powerful information and communication technologies have substantially changed the nature of global relationships, the sources of competitive advantage, and the opportunities for economic and social development. The Internet, portable computers/devices and wireless communication technologies have turned the globe into an interconnected network of individuals, firms, organizations and governments communicating and interacting with each other through a variety of channels.
NODe 2002 especially focuses on topics such as object-oriented (distributed) technologies, concepts and systems, agent-related technologies and concepts, advanced database systems and the Web, and E-commerce, including both the engineering and the use of Web-based application systems. Since Java and Smalltalk play a key role in the above-mentioned areas, we considered them to be of particular interest for the conference. As systems ought to be engineered well to be able to cope with the influx of the above-mentioned technologies in a positive way, the integrative factor of software architectures and component-driven technologies, especially their demands with regards to structures (patterns and architectures) and processes (enhanced life-cycles and workflows), form additional focuses of NODe 2002. However, as in the years before, NODe 2002 was open to questions and aspects of object-oriented and Internet-based technology in general and invited submissions related to a wide variety of topics in these areas.
