setting and/or in a highly elegant way.

Topics include but are not limited to:

- Context-, aspect-, domain-oriented and generative programming
- Macro-, reflective-, meta- and/or rule-based development approaches

Richard P. "dick" Gabriel to be the first keynote speaker at ELS 2014

Hello everyone,

it's an immense pleasure to welcome Richard P. "dick" Gabriel as the first keynote speaker of the 7th European Lisp Symposium. You can read about his talk on this page. This will hopefully make people wake up early on the fist day :-)

EDIT and we now have 2 more guest speakers: Pascal Costanza and Gábor Melis! Can't wait!

ILC 2014 Call for Papers

2014 is going to be a busy year for Lisp. The 7th European Lisp Symposium (Paris, May) will be followed by the International Lisp Conference (August, Montréal). ILC 2014's Call for Papers is just out! And this year, we have a special focus for you...

	       ILC 2014 - International Lisp Conference
			  "Lisp on the Move"

     August 14-17 2014, Université de Montréal, Montréal, Canada

	      Sponsored by the Association of Lisp Users

	     http://www.international-lisp-conference.org


Scope:

Lisp is one of the greatest ideas from computer science and a major
influence for almost all programming languages and for all
sufficiently complex software applications.

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, HOP etc.

This year's focus will be directed towards integrated solutions,
including mobile computing. We especially invite submissions in the
following areas:

  * Pervasive computing
  * Interoperability
  * Portability
  * Implementation challenges/tradeoffs for embedded/mobile platforms
  * Language support for mobile toolkits and frameworks
  * Language support for distribution
  * Language support for reliability, availability, and serviceability
  * Mobile IDEs
  * Mobile applications

Contributions are also welcome in other areas, including but not
limited to:

  * 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
  * Efficient parallel and concurrent computation
  * Language support for managing both manual and automatic GC
  * Theorem proving
  * Scientific computing
  * Data mining
  * Semantic web


Technical Programme:

Original submissions in all areas related to the conference themes are
invited for the following categories:

  Papers: Technical papers of up to 10 pages that describe original
  results.

  Demonstrations: Abstracts of up to 2 pages for demonstrations of
  tools, libraries and applications.

  Workshops: Abstracts of up to 2 pages for groups of people who intend
  to work on a focused topic for half a day.

  Tutorials: Abstracts of up to 2 pages for in-depth presentations about
  topics of special interest for 1 to 2 hours.

  Panel discussions: Abstracts of up to 2 pages for discussions about
  current themes. Panel discussion proposals must mention panel member

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!

Lisp, GSoC and CDRs

Here's a bright idea: why not take the GSoC opportunity to have someone implement all current CDRs in every major Common Lisp implementation? Not that I'm volunteering for anything. I'm justing throwing the though out in the open...

ELS 2013 registration now open

Hello,

just a quick note to let you know that we have finally opened the registration process for ELS 2013. See the bottom the page for more information. It is possible to register via PayPal or via direct bank transfer.

Looking forward to see you all !

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...

ILC 2012

The ALU has announced the next International Lisp Conference. ILC 2012 will take place at the end of October or Early November. I can't wait to meet the international Lisp crowd again, and what's more, in Kyoto, my favorite city in the world! I think I will take the opportunity to buy a new Hakama there. Maybe a Noren or two as well...

In the meantime, stay tuned for the next European Lisp Symposium, to occur in Zadar (Croatia) sometime around end April / early May 2012 !

John McCarthy died last night

John McCarthy John McCarthy, the creator of the most elegant and powerful language ever, has died. I won't repeat what others in the Lisp community are and will be saying all over the place in the next few days. There is only one thing I would like to say right now: I remember him, and I am very happy (for him) that he was still here with us to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his wonderful baby...
