      =================
      * Edi Weitz will give a keynote address on the use of his notorious
      open source libraries in commercial / industrial application.

      * The workshop is sponsored by ITA Software, Inc.

      * This year, and for the first time, the workshop proceedings
      will be published in the ACM Digital Library.



      Overview
      ========
      "...Please don't assume Lisp is only useful for Animation and
      Graphics, AI, Bio-informatics, B2B and E-Commerce, Data Mining,
      EDA/Semiconductor applications, Expert Systems, Finance, Intelligent
      Agents, Knowledge Management, Mechanical CAD, Modeling and Simulation,
      Natural Language, Optimization, Research, Risk Analysis, Scheduling,
      Telecom, and Web Authoring just because these are the only things they
      happened to list."
      -- Kent Pitman

      Lisp, one of the eldest computer languages still in use today, is
      gaining momentum again. The structure of Lisp makes it easy to extend
      the language or even to implement entirely new dialects without
      starting from scratch, making it the ideal candidate for writing
      Domain Specific Languages. Common Lisp, with the Common Lisp Object
      System (CLOS), was the first object-oriented programming language to
      receive an ANSI standard and retains the most complete and advanced
      object system of any programming language, while influencing many
      other object-oriented programming languages that followed.

      This workshop will address the near-future role of Lisp-based
      languages in research, industry and education. We solicit
      contributions that discuss the opportunities Lisp provides to capture
      and enhance the possibilities in software engineering. We 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.



      Programme
      =========
      In addition to Edi Weitz's keynote address, the workshop will feature four
      technical papers and two tutorials. Please visit the programme web page
      (http://elw2009.bknr.net/programme) for a detailed description.
