“A very good conference; a big thank you to Franjo Pehar and Damir Kero, and the University of Zadar, for being such excellent hosts; it’s been a great three days.”
Author: Juanjo
“I would like to thank the ELS organizers and steering committee for a wonderful meeting in Zadar. Great location, amazing food, and even better discussions.”
Author: Irene Durand
… very positive of course :-) Some photos of Zadar!

Thanks for everything, it was very nice and very well organised.

It is a good sign when my biggest organisational problem with the conference was finding any browser that would be able to display the feedback form, actually.

Call for Participation

European Lisp Symposium 2012, Zadar, Croatia, April 30th – May 1st, 2012

http://european-lisp-symposium.org

The purpose of the European Lisp Symposium is to provide a forum for the discussion and dissemination of all aspects of design, implementation and application of any of the Lisp and Lisp-inspired dialects, including Common Lisp, Scheme, Emacs Lisp, AutoLisp, ISLISP, Dylan, Clojure, ACL2, ECMAScript, Racket, SKILL, and so on. We encourage everyone interested in Lisp to participate.

The main theme of the 2012 European Lisp Conference is “Interoperability: Systems, Libraries, Workflows”. Lisp based and functional-languages based systems have grown a variety of solutions to become more and more integrated with the wider world of Information and Communication Technologies in current use.  There are several dimensions to the scope of the solutions proposed, ranging from “embedding” of interpreters in C-based systems, to the development of abstractions levels that facilitate the expression of complex context dependent tasks, to the construction of exchange formats handling libraries, to the construction of theorem-provers for the “Semantic Web”.  The European Lisp Symposium 2012 solicits the submission of papers with this specific theme in mind, alongside the more traditional tracks which have appeared in the past editions.

Venue:

Zadar is one of the enchanting cities on the Adriatic coast rich in history. It still preserves a very old network of narrow and charming city streets, as well as a Roman forum dating back to the first century AD. In addition, Zadar region encompasses many natural beauties, most prominent among them is the Kornati National Park, the most unusual and indented set of small islands in the Mediterranean (89 islands, islets and reefs) located only 15 nautical miles south of Zadar – a visit to Kornati is planned as a part of the conference.
