Abstract: Korz is a new computational model that combines implicit arguments (constituting context) with multiple dispatch, in a slot-based model. Slots from a multidimensional space are drawn together into “objects” subjectively, in different ways in different contexts. The combination of these few concepts powerfully supports evolution and contextual variation along multiple dimensions. Korz holds promise as a foundation for future languages that deeply integrate object-oriented, aspect-oriented and context-oriented capabilities. Nonetheless, a number of issues remain to be resolved.
