      Lisp has a tradition of providing a fruitful basis for language design
      experiments for many decades. The structure of Lisp, including its
      current major dialects Common Lisp and Scheme, makes it easy to extend
      the language or even to implement entirely new dialects without starting
      from scratch. The Common Lisp Object System (CLOS) was the first
      object-oriented programming language to receive an ANSI standard. It is,
      arguably, the most complete and advanced object system of any language.

      Despite having somewhat disappeared from the radar of popular computer
      science, Lisp has just started to gain momentum again. Many current
      trends are strongly influenced by the metaprogramming notions that are
      prevalent in Lisp, for example Aspect-Oriented Programming,
      Domain-Oriented Programming, Model-Driven Architectures, Generative
      Programming, and so on, that make heavy use of metaprogramming in the

      This one-day workshop will address the near-future role of Lisp-based
      languages in those and related areas. We want to solicit papers that
      discuss the opportunities Lisp provides to capture and enhance the
      possibilities in software engineering. We also want to promote lively
      discussion between researchers proposing new approaches and
      practitioners reporting on their experience with the strengths and
      limitations of current Lisp technologies.

      Suggested Topics:
      * Macro-, reflective-, meta- and/or rule-based development approaches
      * New language features / abstractions
      * Case studies
      * Experience reports
      * Industrial applications
      * Aspect-Oriented Programming
      * Domain-Oriented Programming
      * Generative Programming
      * Ambient Intelligence
      * Context-Oriented Programming
      * Unanticipated Software Evolution
      * Design Patterns

      Submission Guidelines:
      Potential attendants are expected to submit
      * either a long paper (10 pages) presenting scientific and/or empirical
      results about Lisp- and Scheme-based uses or new approaches for
      software engineering purposes
      * or a short essay (5 pages) defending a position about where research
      and practice based on Lisp and Scheme should be heading in the near

      Submissions should be mailed as PDF to Pascal Costanza
      (costanza@...-bonn.de) before the submission deadline.
