The 2004 International Rexx Symposium will celebrate the Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the Rexx Language in the beautiful Swabian region of Germany on 2 May - 6 May, 2004.   In recognition of this significant milestone, the fifteenth annual Rexx Symposium has been extended to four days for the first time.   The program agenda represents the best of an overwhelming number of quality presentations offered by the best Rexx practitioners in the world.   As usual, the Sunday before the Symposium will feature free tutorials and a welcome reception.   The IBM Rexx Development Team has generously offered to host the Symposium at the luxurious IBM Executive Briefing Center at their Böblingen Research Labs on Tuesday and Wednesday.   To ease travel considerations, the first and last days of the Symposium will be held at the Symposium hotel.

The Symposium is the only technical conference dedicated to the Rexx family of programming languages, drawing speakers and attendees from around the world.   It is the best place to learn valuable Rexx programming techniques, keep up with the latest developments in the Rexx community, and confer with your colleagues, many of whom are luminaries in the field.   The Program will feature a wide variety of presentations ranging from tutorial introduction to real-world practical applications, to research papers describing techniques and features you will be using in the future.

The Program Schedule has been assembled and the details are available on the RexxLA website.
