      2009 Special News
      This year, and for the first time, the workshop proceedings will be
      published in the ACM Digital Library. Also, the workshop will feature
      interactive tutorial/demo/coding sessions (see below).

      "...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.

      The workshop will have two components: there will be formal talks, and
      interactive turorial/demo/coding sessions.

      Formal presentations in the workshop should take between 20 minutes
      and half an hour; additional time will be given for questions and
      answers. Suggested topics include (but are not limited to):

      - Experience reports / Case studies
      - Educational approaches
      - Software Evolution
      - Development Aids
      - Persistent Systems
      - Dynamic Optimization
      - Implementation techniques
      - Hardware Support
      - Efficiency / Distribution / Parallel programming
      - Macro-, reflective-, meta- and/or rule-based development approaches
      - Protocol Meta-programming and Libraries
      - Context-Oriented, Domain-Oriented and Generative Programming

      Interactive Tutorial/Demo/Coding Sessions
      Additionally, we invite less formal talks in the form of interactive
      tutorial/demo/coding sessions. The purpose of these sessions is to
      both demonstrate and receive feedback on any interesting Lisp system,
      either stable or under development. Being less formal than technical
      paper presentations, it is expected that these sessions be highly

      Submission Guidelines
      Potential contributors are encouraged to submit:

      - a long paper (around 10 pages) presenting scientific and/or
      empirical results about Lisp-based uses or new approaches for
      software engineering purposes,

      - a short essay (5 pages) defending a position about where
      research, practice or education based on Lisp should be heading in
      the near future,

      - a proposal for an interactive tutorial/demo/coding session (1-2
      pages) describing the involved library or application, and the
      subject of the session.

      Papers (both long and short) should be formatted following the ACM
      SIGS guidelines (see
      http://www.acm.org/sigs/publications/proceedings-templates) and
      include ACM classification categories and terms (see
      http://www.acm.org/about/class/1998). Authors will later be required
      to sign an ACM copyright form.

      Submissions should be mailed as PDF to Didier Verna
      (didier@...) before the submission deadline.
