The European Lisp Symposium 2008 invites high quality papers about novel research results, insights and lessons learned from practical applications, and educational perspectives, all involving Lisp dialects, including Common 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 largely 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.
