ELS 2016 registration now open!

Some people do seem to be in the starting blocks for the 9th European Lisp Symposium. One person has already booked his flight, while 3 people from Poland registered yesterday, with the web form that I was still testing. All of this, without the final programme being available, and hell, we're still missing a couple of reviews!

Thank you for the confidence! The registration page is now officially open! :-)

ELS 2013 Proceedings

I have just compiled the proceedings for ELS 2013, the 6th European Lisp Symposium. I have also asked Manuel and Nick to add them to their respective pages, the official ELS 2013 page and the audio recordings page.

Thanks to both of them for their support !

ELS 2013 Material

ELS 2013, the 6th European Lisp Symposium, took place in Madrid on June 3th and 4th.

During the symposium, Nick Levine recorded audio versions of the presentations and collected them here. Nick has also agreed to collect other material from the presenters (slides notably) and put it at the same location. The page is growing up as we speak.

It was good to see you all in Madrid. Thanks to all the presenters and thanks Nick for doing this!

ELS 2013

We are pleased to announce the next edition of the European Lisp Symposium: ELS 2013, to be held on June 3/4 2013 in Madrid, Spain.

This year we have the pleasure and honor of having Christian Queinnec and Manuel Serrano as co-chairs, and Juan-Jose "Juanjo" Garcia Ripoll, leader of the ECL project, as local organizer.

What's more, and for the first time, we are also delighted to announce that the symposium will be held in co-location with ECLM, the next European Common Lisp Meeting!

A couple of exciting days to come...

The European Lisp Symposium website is back on (sort of)

In the recent months, the European Lisp Symposium steering committee has been seeking to improve its organization, notably on the financial level. To this aim, we created a non-profit organization in France (it's called ELSAA) which will help by providing a legal entity for all kinds of transactions.

A couple of days ago, I bought the domain name elsaa.org and started to re-install the ELS website that disappeared some time ago. 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: http://els.elsaa.org. The domain name european-lisp-symposium.org has not been redirected yet, but this will come soon I hope.

Sorry to all of you who asked for those pages recently...

European Lisp Symposium in-between

It's been two months since ELS 2011 is over and I didn't have the time to give my impressions as the programme chair until now. I still don't have much time, so it's going to be quick, but before that, here are two announcements in this transition phase:

  • the proceedings are now available as a single PDF file.
  • eventhough a couple of options are already under consideration, we are still looking for volunteers to be next year's local chair. If this is of interest to you and you have the ability to locate ELS 2012 at your place, please contact us.

About ELS 2011 now. I'd say that it was a great success, perhaps the most successful of the 4 occurrences. We got two full days of interesting talks on various topics and of different forms. We gathered more than 60 persons from all around Europe and also a quite a few from the US (ITA contributed greatly to that :-). The final panel was very nice (something quite rare these days). The local organization went also pretty smoothly.

In retrospect, and as the person in charge of the contents, I have several hypothesis on what makes such an event successful, especially in those days where academic events suffer from a decreasing level of attendance.

  1. Having a "special focus" helps. Having an important one (like Parallelism and Efficiency) helps even more.
  2. Having a regularly occurring event also helps a lot, especially for academicians. This is not new, but it really is important to know that ELS will always happen roughly at the same period every year. Academicians (at least) need to plan their work that long in advance.
  3. I also like more and more the formula of a "mixed" conference where you invite formal (technical) papers, demonstrations, position papers etc. Some people know how to write technical papers, some people don't, are not so good at it, or just don't have the time for it, but it doesn't mean they have nothing interesting to say. ELS 2011 had about 50% formal presentations and 50% demonstrations. I decided to create the different sessions not by grouping talks based on format, but based on topic, and I think this went pretty well. The sessions didn't look completely heterogeneous to me.
  4. Having invited speakers helps. This is of course not new at all, but here, I would just like to answer something I've read recently about ELS 2011; a blogger (I don't remember who) saying that he didn't understand why 2 out of the 3 guests were not speaking about Lisp at all. My opinion on this is simple: as a community (in general; not speaking of Lisp in particular), we have a tendency to be separated from the rest of the CS crowd and loose track of what's going on next door. We don't talk to each other enough. Hell, it's already so difficult to stay up-to-date with your own crowd sometimes! So when I attend a very focused conference, like a language-specific one, I'm always happy to be served a couple of talks that can broaden my view of things, even if they have no direct connection with my own activities. In our specific case, I was very happy with Craig Zilles'presentation and I can see how this could be of interest to us in the long term.

So, that's it for now. Stay tuned for next year's location, and in the meantime, remember that some other Lisp events are already planned: ECLM in Amsterdam, and ILC in Kyoto... simply my favorite place in the world!

ELS 2011 last minute addition

Hello all,

I'm pleased to inform you that we have a last minute addition to the 4th European Lisp Symposium's programme: a presentation by Alec Berryman from ITA software about parallelizing an SBCL codebase for performance. I think this will make a perfect introduction to the subsequent panel entitled "Lisp: the next challenges"...

Hope to see you there, still time to register!

Wednesday, March 2 2011

ELS 2011 programme now available!

The final programme for the 4th European Lisp Symposium is now online! 2 full days of keynotes, technical papers, demonstrations, lightning talks and panels with a special focus on performance, efficiency, parallelism, concurrency, distribution...

Early bird registration is still available until March 12th so hurry!

Hope to see you there.
