  • [ann] ILC-2010


    The ALU is pleased to announce that the International Lisp Conference 2010 (ILC-2010) will be held mid October in Reno, Nevada.

    ILC-2010 will be colocated with OOPSLA/SPLASH.

    Colocated conferences allow people to explore other sessions; but the ILC itself will be the same independent, lisp-intensive event you've grown to love.

    More announcements, including the ILC conference website and call for papers, will appear in the coming weeks.

    The Association of Lisp Users is pleased to announce that the 2010
    International Lisp Conference will be held in Reno, Nevada, in
    collocation with SPLASH 2010. The scope includes all areas related to
    the Lisp family of programming languages.

    Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library

    Extended Abstracts and Papers must be written in English and submitted
    electronically at in
    PDF or WORD format. If an Extended Abstract is submitted, it must be
    between 2 and 4 pages, with full paper to follow before final

    Final submissions must not exceed 15 pages and need to use the ACM
    format, for which templates which can be found at:

    Important Dates:

    * Deadline for Abstract Submission: August 1, 2010
    * Deadline for Paper Submission: September 6, 2010

    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

    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, etc.

    Topics may include any and all combinations of Lisp and:

    * Language design and implementation
    * Language critique
    * Language integration, inter-operation and deployment
    * Applications (especially commercial)
    * 'Pearls' (of wisdom)
    * Experience reports and case studies
    * Reflection, meta-object protocols, meta-programming
    * Domain-specific languages
    * Programming paradigms and environments
    * Parallel and distributed computing
    * Software evolution
    * Theorem proving
    * Scientific computing
    * Data mining
    * Semantic web

    We also encourage submissions about known ideas as long as they are
    presented in a new setting and/or in a highly elegant way.

    Authors concerned about the appropriateness of a topic may communicate
    by electronic mail with the program chair prior to submission.

    Each paper should explain its contributions in both general and
    technical terms, identifying what has been accomplished, explaining
    why it is significant, and comparing it with previous work. Authors
    should strive to make their papers understandable to a broad audience.
    Each paper will be judged according to its significance, novelty,
    correctness, clarity, and elegance.

    The official language of the conference is English. Some further
    information is available at the conference web site, with more details
    added later. See:

    Technical Program:

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

    * Papers: Technical papers of up to 15 pages that describe original
    results or explain known ideas in new and elegant ways, or extended
    abstracts of 4 pages soon followed by the corresponding full paper.

    * Demonstrations: Abstracts of up to 4 pages for demonstrations of
    tools, libraries, and applications.

    * Tutorials: Abstracts of up to 4 pages for in-depth presentations
    about topics of special interest for at least 90 minutes and up to
    180 minutes.

    * Workshops: Abstracts of up to 4 pages for groups of people who
    intend to work on a focused topic for half a day.

    * Panel discussions: Abstracts of up to 4 pages for discussions about
    current themes. Panel discussion proposals must mention panel
    members who are willing to partake in a discussion.

    * Lightning talks: Abstracts of up to one page for talks to last for
    no more than 5 minutes.

    Depending on the technical content, each submitted paper will be
    classified by the program committee as either a technical paper or as
    an experience paper; and authors will be informed about this
    classification. Note that all interesting submissions are considered
    valuable contributions to the success of the ILC series of
    conferences. As in past ILC's since 2007, accepted papers in both
    categories will be presented at the conference, included in the
    proceedings, and submitted to the ACM digital library.
