OOPSLA (Object-Oriented Programming, Systems, Languages & Applications) is an annual ACM conference.

OOPSLA is an annual conference covering topics on object-oriented programming systems, languages and applications. Like other conferences, OOPSLA offers various tracks and many simultaneous sessions, and thus has different meaning to different people. It is more academic than some conferences, with doctoral students presenting papers for credit, and less academic than others.

The first OOPSLA was held in Portland, Oregon in 1986. It operates under the auspices of the Special Interest Group for Programming Languages (SIGPLAN) group of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM).

OOPSLA’s venue changes every year, and the categories of its program vary. Historically OOPSLA has combined the presentation of academic papers with comparatively practical experience reports, panels, workshops and tutorials.

OOPSLA helped object-oriented programming develop into what is now mainstream programming, and helped incubate a number of related disciplines, including design patterns, refactoring, aspect-oriented programming, Model Driven Engineering, agile software development, and Domain Specific Language.

The sister conference of OOPSLA in Europe is ECOOP.
