      Hello,

      here are some important news on the 5th European Lisp Workshop, July 7,
      Pahpos, Cyprus, co-located with ECOOP 2008:


      * The paper selection process is over; the final programme will be
      available shortly. Stay tuned for the upcoming call for participation!


      * We now have the abstracts for the two keynote presentations:

      Lisp for the 21st Century (Mark Tarver)

      As Lisp reaches its 50th anniversary, the talk looks at some of the
      reasons why Lisp has not found a wider acceptance amongst the
      programming community. Part of the reasons lie in a vicious cycle
      between education and industry within which Lisp is trapped. One
      solution is the L21 project - to produce a rationalized and revised
      update of Lisp for the C21. Qi fits many of the constraints of the L21
      project. The talk concludes on what needs to be done within Qi and the
      Lisp world to bring Lisp to the center stage.


      A Detailed Look at the Lisp Nature of Clojure (Rich Hickey)

      The small essential core of Lisp makes dialects easy to define and
      implement. Most dialects are viewed skeptically by the community, as
      their features can be realized via the extensibility mechanisms of
      Scheme or Common Lisp. However, functional programming,
      interoperability, extensibility and concurrency objectives call for
      different decisions at many Lisp design points. Meeting those objectives
      in a Lisp dialect testifies to the continued vitality of the Lisp idea.
      This talk will provide a rationale for Clojure as a substantive and
      unique dialect of Lisp, and details of its design and implementation on
      the JVM.


      * Courtesy of EPITA, the workshop will have printed proceedings. A PDF
      version will also be made available on the website after the event.


      * Finally, please note that the official ELW website,
      http://elw.bknr.net, now contains an archive of all past occurrences
      of the workshop.
