I also took the opportunity to move the pages of the former European Lisp Workshop there (european-lisp-workshop.org now points to it). If you want to access the ELS pages, you can do so right now by using this URL: <a href="http://els.elsaa.org">http://els.elsaa.org</a>.

The purpose of these sessions is both<br />to demonstrate and receive feedback on any interesting Lisp system,<br />either stable or under development. Being less formal than technical<br />paper presentations, these sessions are expected to be highly<br />interactive.<br /><br /><br />Submission Guidelines<br />=====================<br />Potential contributors are encouraged to submit:<br /><br />- a long paper (around 10 pages) presenting scientific and/or<br /> empirical results about Lisp-based uses or new approaches for<br /> software engineering purposes,<br /><br />- a short essay (5 pages) defending a position about where<br /> research, practice or education based on Lisp should be heading in<br /> the near future,<br /><br />- a proposal for an interactive tutorial/demo/coding session (1-2<br /> pages) describing the involved library or application, and the<br /> subject of the session.<br /><br />Papers (both long and short) should be formatted following the ACM SIGS<br />guidelines and include ACM classification categories and terms (see below).<br />Authors will later be required to sign an ACM copyright form, as the workshop<br />proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.<br /><br />For more information on the submission guidelines and the ACM keywords, see:<br /><a href="http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates" target="_blank">http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/pr ... -templates</a><br /><a href="http://www.acm.org/about/class/1998" target="_blank">http://www.acm.org/about/class/1998</a><br /><br />Submissions should be uploaded to Easy Chair, at the following address:<br /><a href="http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=elw2010" target="_blank">http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=elw2010</a><br /><br /><br />Organizers<br />==========<br /><br />Didier Verna, EPITA Research and Development Laboratory, Paris<br />Charlotte Herzeel, Programming Technology Lab, Vrije Universiteit, Brussel<br />Robert Strandh, LaBRI, University of Bordeaux 1, France<br />Christophe Rhodes, Goldsmiths College, University of London</pre><br /> https://www.didierverna.net/blog/index.php?post/2010/02/15/ELW-2010%3A-7th-European-Lisp-Workshop#comment-form https://www.didierverna.net/blog/index.php?feed/navlang:en/atom/comments/26 ILC 2009 lightning talks urn:md5:e96796e88ae6d446c1da10464f94053e Monday, March 30 2009 Monday, March 30 2009 Didier Verna Lisp AïkidoClonELWJazzlightning talk As almost every participant I believe, my opinion is that the lightning talks were a great idea in the first place, and also a great success.<br /><br />At the very last minute, I changed my mind about the contents. I got a bit bored with too much Lisp technical stuff and decided I would talk about Lisp, Jazz and Aïkido for a change (see the corresponding <a href="http://www.didierverna.com/sciblog/index.php?post/2008/09/08/Lisp%2C-Jazz%2C-Aïkido" target="_blank">Sci-Blog entry</a>). Some people did like the idea and I got several very interesting conversations after that. It's always cool to meet other lispers that are musicians as well, and even martial arts practitioners !<br /><br />I'll keep the Clon stuff for the <a href="http://elw.bknr.net/2009" target="_blank">European Lisp Workshop</a> instead, and I think I will give a tutorial on it there. https://www.didierverna.net/blog/index.php?post/2009/03/30/ILC-2009-lightning-talks#comment-form https://www.didierverna.net/blog/index.php?feed/navlang:en/atom/comments/38 Call for Papers: 6th European Lisp Workshop urn:md5:2105e57211992a8d3d684038f4318eb4 Tuesday, February 24 2009 Tuesday, February 24 2009 Didier Verna Lisp conferenceELW CALL FOR PAPERS<br />6th European Lisp Workshop<br />July 6, Genova, Italy - co-located with ECOOP 2009<br /><br /><br />Important Dates<br />===============<br />Submission deadline: April 08, 2009<br />Notification of acceptance: May 08, 2009<br />ECOOP early registration deadline: May 20, 2009<br />6th European Lisp Workshop: July 06, 2009<br /><br />Please note that registration must be done with ECOOP itself.<br />For more information visit <a href="http://elw.bknr.net/2009" target="_blank">http://elw.bknr.net/2009</a><br />Contact: Didier Verna, <a href="mailto:didier@lrde.epita.fr" target="_blank">didier@lrde.epita.fr</a><br /><br /><br />2009 Special News<br />=================<br />This year, and for the first time, the workshop proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.

In<br />the decades of its existence, Lisp has been a fruitful basis for<br />language design experiments as well as the preferred implementation<br />language for applications in diverse fields.<br /><br />The structure of Lisp makes it easy to extend the language or even to<br />implement entirely new dialects without starting from scratch. Common<br />Lisp, with the Common Lisp Object System (CLOS), was the first<br />object-oriented programming language to receive an ANSI standard and<br />retains the most complete and advanced object system of any<br />programming language, while influencing many other object-oriented<br />programming languages that followed.<br /><br />It is clear that Lisp is gaining momentum: there is a steadily growing<br />interest in Lisp itself, with numerous user groups in existence<br />worldwide, and in Lisp's metaprogramming notions which are being<br />transferred to other languages, as for example in Aspect-Oriented<br />Programming, support for Domain-Specific Languages, and so on.<br /><br />This workshop will address the near-future role of Lisp-based<br />languages in research, industry and education. We solicit papers and<br />suggestions for breakout groups that discuss the opportunities Lisp<br />provides to capture and enhance the possibilities in software<br />engineering. We want to promote lively discussion between researchers<br />proposing new approaches and practitioners reporting on their<br />experience with the strengths and limitations of current Lisp<br />technologies.<br /><br />The workshop will have two components: there will be<br />formally-presented talks, and breakout groups discussing or working on<br />particular topics. Additionally, there will be opportunities for<br />short, informal talks and demonstrations on experience reports,<br />underappreciated results, software under development, or other topics<br />of interest.<br /><br /><br />Papers<br />******<br /><br />Formal presentations in the workshop should take between 20 minutes<br />and half an hour; additional time will be given for questions and<br />answers. We encourage that papers be published on the website, to<br />provide all participants with background information in advance.<br /><br />Suggested Topics:<br />- New language features or abstractions<br />- Experience reports or case studies<br />- Protocol Metaprogramming and Libraries<br />- Educational approaches<br />- Software Evolution<br />- Development Aids<br />- Persistent Systems<br />- Dynamic Optimization<br />- Implementation techniques<br />- Innovative Applications<br />- Hardware Support for Lisp systems<br />- Macro-, reflective-, meta- and/or rule-based development approaches<br />- Aspect-Oriented, Domain-Oriented and Generative Programming<br /><br /><br />Breakout Groups<br />***************<br /><br />The workshop will provide for the opportunity to meet face to face and<br />work on focused topics. We will organize these breakout groups and<br />provide for rooms and infrastructure.<br /><br />Suggested Topics for Breakout Groups:<br />- Lisp Infrastructure Development and Distribution<br />- Language Features (e.g. Predicate Dispatching)<br />- Environments for creating web applications<br />- Brainstorming sessions for new or existing open source projects<br />- Persistence Systems<br />- Compiler technology<br />- Lisp on bare metal / Lisp hardware / Lisp operating systems<br />- Compare and enhance curricula for computer science education<br /><br /><br />Submission Guidelines<br />*********************<br /><br />Potential attendees are encouraged to submit:<br /><br />- a long paper (10 pages) presenting scientific and/or<br /> empirical results about Lisp-based uses or new approaches for<br /> software engineering purposes,<br /><br />- a short essay (5 pages) defending a position about where<br /> research, practice or education based on Lisp should be heading in<br /> the near future,<br /><br />- a proposal for a breakout group (1-2 pages) describing the theme, an<br /> agenda and/or expected results.<br /><br />Submissions should be mailed as PDF to Didier Verna<br />(didier@lrde.epita.fr) before the submission deadline.<br /> https://www.didierverna.net/blog/index.php?post/2008/02/19/5th-European-Lisp-Workshop-Call-for-Papers#comment-form https://www.didierverna.net/blog/index.php?feed/navlang:en/atom/comments/56
