4th European Lisp Symposium

Special Focus on Parallelism & Efficiency

March 31st - April 1st, 2011
TUHH, Hamburg University of Technology, Hamburg, Germany

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 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 European Lisp Symposium 2011 invites high quality papers about novel research results, insights and lessons learned from practical applications, and educational perspectives. We also encourage submissions about known ideas as long as they are presented in a new setting and/or in a highly elegant way.

This year's focus will be directed towards "Parallelism & Efficiency". We especially invite submissions in the following areas:

  • Parallel and distributed computing
  • Code generation for multi-core architectures
  • Code generation for HTM
  • Large and ultra-large systems
  • Optimization techniques
  • Embedded applications

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

  • Context-, aspect-, domain-oriented and generative programming
  • Macro-, reflective-, meta- and/or rule-based development approaches
  • Language design and implementation
  • Language integration, inter-operation and deployment
  • Development methodologies, support and environments
  • Educational approaches and perspectives
  • Experience reports and case studies

Technical Programme

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 minutes.
  • 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.
