Apologies for the multiple postings...


European Lisp Symposium 2012, Zadar, Croatia, April 30th - May 1st, 2012

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 and Lisp-inspired
dialects, including Common Lisp, Scheme, Emacs Lisp, AutoLisp, ISLISP,
Dylan, Clojure, ACL2, ECMAScript, Racket, SKILL, and so on. We
encourage everyone interested in Lisp to participate.

The main theme of the 2012 European Lisp Conference is
"Interoperabilty: Systems, Libraries, Workflows".  Lisp based and
functional-languages based systems have grown a variety of solutions
to become more and more integrated with the wider world of Information
and Communication Technologies in current use.  There are several
dimensions to the scope of the solutions proposed, ranging from
"embedding" of interpreters in C-based systems, to the development of
abstractions levels that facilitate the expression of complex context
dependent tasks, to the construction of exchange formats handling
libraries, to the construction of theorem-provers for the "Semantic
Web".  The European Lisp Symposium 2012 solicits the submission of
papers with this specific theme in mind, alongside the more
traditional tracks which have appeared in the past editions.

We invite submissions in the following forms:

Papers: Technical papers of up to 15 pages that describe original
results or explain known ideas in new and elegant ways.

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

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

All submissions should be formatted following the ACM SIGS guidelines
and include ACM classification categories and terms. For more
information on the submission guidelines and the ACM keywords, see: and
