Introduction:Computer aided modeling and simulation of complex systems; using components from multiple application domains; such as electrical; mechanical; hydraulic; control; etc.; have in recent years witnessed a significant growth of interest. In the last decade; novel equation-based object-oriented (EOO) modeling languages; (e.g. Modelica; gPROMS; and VHDL-AMS) based on a-causal modeling using equations have appeared. Using such languages; it has become possible to model complex systems covering multiple application domains at a high level of abstraction through reusable model components.
   The interest in EOO languages and tools is rapidly growing in the industry because of their increasing importance in modeling; simulation; and specification of complex systems. There exist several different EOO language communities today that grew out of different application areas (multi-body system dynamics; electronic circuit simulation; chemical process engineering). The members of these disparate communities rarely talk to each other in spite of the similarities of their modeling and simulation needs.
   The EOOLT workshop series aims at bringing these different communities together to discuss their common needs and goals as well as the algorithms and tools that best support them.
Despite the fact that this is a new not very established workshop series; there was a good response to the call-for-papers. Thirteen papers were accepted to the workshop program out of fifteen submissions. All papers were subject to rather detailed reviews by the program committee; on the average four reviews per paper. The workshop program started with a welcome and introduction to the area of equation-based object-oriented languages; followed by the keynote talk by Hans Vangheluwe and paper presentations. Discussion sessions were held after presentations of each set of related papers.
   On behalf of the program committee; the Program Chairmen would like to thank all those who submitted papers to EOOLT2008. Special thanks go to Loucas Louca who helped with the local on-site organization of the workshop. Many thanks go also to the program committee for reviewing the papers. The venue for EOOLT2008 was Paphos; Cyprus; in conjunction with the ECOOP2008 conference.
