Post by els2010 » Wed Apr 21, 2010 6:11 am

3rd European Lisp Symposium

Lisbon, Portugal

Call for Participation
Registration for the 3rd European Lisp Symposium (ELS 2010) is now
open at http://www.european-lisp-symposium.org/.

Scope and Programme Highlights
The purpose of the European Lisp Symposium is to provide a forum for
the discussion of all aspects of the design, implementation and
application of any of the Lisp dialects. We encourage everyone
interested in Lisp to participate.

As well as presentations of the accepted technical papers and
tutorials, the programme features the following highlights:

- Kent Pitman of HyperMeta Inc. will offer reflections on Lisp Past,
Present and Future;

- Pascal Costanza will lead a tutorial session on Parallel
Programming in Common Lisp;

- Matthias Felleisen of PLT will talk about languages for creating
programming languages;

- A TI Explorer Lisp Machine, having been unplugged for the best
part of two decades, will be demonstrated;

- there will be opportunities for attendees to give lightning talks
and demos of late-breaking work.

Social events
- Symposium banquet (included with registration)
- Excursion to Sintra (optional, Saturday May 8): for six centuries
the favourite Summer residence of the Kings of Portugal, who were
attracted by cool climates and the beauty of the town's setting.
