3rd European Lisp Symposium

May 6-7, 2010,
Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian, Lisbon, Portugal

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

The European Lisp Symposium 2010 invites high quality papers about novel research results, insights and lessons learned from practical applications, and educational perspectives, all involving Lisp dialects, including Common Lisp, Scheme, Emacs Lisp, AutoLisp, ISLISP, Dylan, Clojure, and so on.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Language design and implementation
  • Language integration, interoperation and deployment
  • Development methodologies, support and environments
  • Reflection, protocols and meta-level architectures
  • Lisp in Education
  • Parallel, distributed and scientific computing
  • Large and ultra-large-scale systems
  • Hardware, virtual machine and embedded applications
  • Domain-oriented programming
  • Lisp pearls
  • Experience reports and case studies

We invite submissions (through EasyChair) in two categories: original contributions and tutorials.

  • Original contributions should neither have been published previously nor be under review in any other refereed events or publication. Research papers should describe work that advances the current state of the art, or presents old results from a new perspective. Experience papers should be of broad interest and should describe insights gained from substantive practical applications. The programme committee will evaluate each contributed paper – which should be formatted according to the J.UCS style and up to fifteen pages in length – based on its relevance, significance, clarity, and originality.
  • Tutorial submissions should be extended abstracts of up to four pages for in-depth presentations about topics of special interest for at least 90 minutes and up to 180 minutes. The programme committee will evaluate tutorial proposals based on the likely interest in the topic matter, the clarity of the presentation in the extended abstract, and the scope for interactive participation.

The tutorials will run during the symposium on May 6, 2010.
