The International Lisp Conference is a forum for the discussion of Lisp and, in particular, the design, implementation and application of any of the Lisp dialects. We encourage everyone interested in Lisp to participate. We invite high quality submissions in all areas involving Lisp dialects and any other languages in the Lisp family, including, but not limited to, ACL2, AutoLisp, Clojure, Common Lisp, ECMAScript, Dylan, Emacs Lisp, ISLISP, Racket, Scheme, SKILL, etc. Topics may include any and all combinations of Lisp and: * Language design and implementation * Language integration, inter-operation and deployment * Applications (especially commercial) * Reflection, meta-object protocols, meta-programming * Domain-specific languages * Programming paradigms and environments * Parallel and distributed computing * Theorem proving * Scientific computing * Data mining * Semantic web Organizing Committee: General Chair: KURODA Hisao (Mathematical Systems Inc. / ALU) Members: Daniel Herring (ALU) Jon L White (ALU) Rusty Johnson (ALU) Program Chair: Hiroshi Okuno (Kyoto Univ.)
