      The European Lisp Symposium 2008 invites high quality papers about novel
      research results, insights and lessons learned from practical
      and educational perspectives, all involving Lisp dialects, including
      Lisp, Scheme, ISLISP, Dylan, and so on.

      Topics include, but are not limited to:

      * Language design and implementation techniques
      * Language integration, interoperation and deployment
      * Experience reports and case studies
      * Reflection and meta-level architectures
      * Educational approaches
      * Software adaptation and evolution
      * Configuration management
      * Artificial intelligence
      * Large and ultra-large-scale systems
      * Development methodologies
      * Development support and environments
      * Persistent systems
      * Scientific computing
      * Parallel and distributed computing
      * Data mining
      * Semantic web
      * Dynamic optimization
      * Innovative applications
      * Hardware and virtual machine support
      * Domain-oriented programming

      We also encourage submissions about past approaches that have been
      forgotten about, as long as they are presented in a new setting.

      We invite submissions in two categories:
      original contributions and work-in-progress papers.

      *** Original contributions have neither been published previously nor
      under review by other refereed events or publications. Research papers
      describe work that advances the current state of the art, or presents
      results from a new perspective. Experience papers should be of broad
      and should describe insights gained from substantive practical
      The program committee will evaluate each contributed paper based on its
      relevance, significance, clarity, and originality.

      Accepted papers will be published in the Journal of Universal Computer
      (J.UCS). Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work
      at the
      symposium main track in Bordeaux on May 23, 2008.

      *** Work in progress describes ongoing work that is not ready for
      yet, but would benefit strongly from feedback by other researchers,
      practitioners and educators. Such contributions will not be published
      in the
      symposium proceedings, but will be made available at the symposium
      The work-in-progress track will be organized as a series of writers'
      where authors work together to improve their papers. Some authors who
      papers for the main track will be suggested to contribute their work
      in this
      track instead, if the program committee decides that their submission
      is not
      yet ready for a publication.

      The writers' workshops will take place at the symposium in Bordeaux on
      May 22, 2008.


      Papers for the main track must be submitted electronically, preferably
      as PDF
      or PostScript file (level 1 or 2). However, submissions in RTF or Word
      are also accepted. Initial submissions may not exceed 15 pages in the
      style, including all appendices. (Invited papers for the journal
      will have a page limitation of 25 pages in the same format.) See the
      website for more details, including about the submission procedure.

      Papers for the work-in-progress track may be in PDF, PostScript level
      1 or 2,
      RTF or Word, and may not exceed 25 pages. There are no further
      requirements on
      their format. Papers for the work-in-progress track must be sent via
      email to
