Accepted research papers will be invited for a special issue of the
Journal of Universal Computer Science (J.UCS). See the symposium
website for more details.


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

We invite submissions in two categories:
original contributions and work-in-progress papers.

*** Original contributions have neither been published previously nor
are under review by other refereed events or publications. Research
papers should describe work that advances the current state of the
art, or presents old results from a new perspective. Experience papers
should be of broad interest and should describe insights gained from
substantive practical applications. The program committee will
evaluate each contributed paper based on its relevance, significance,
clarity, and originality.

Accepted papers will be published in the Journal of Universal Computer
Science (J.UCS). Authors of accepted papers are expected to present
their work at the symposium main track in Bordeaux on May 23, 2008.

*** Work in progress describes ongoing work that is not ready for
publication yet, but would benefit strongly from feedback by other
researchers, practitioners and educators. Such contributions will not
be published in the symposium proceedings, but will be made available
at the symposium website. The work-in-progress track will be organized
as a series of writers' workshops where authors work together to
improve their papers. Some authors who submit papers for the main
track will be suggested to contribute their work in this track
instead, if the program committee decides that their submission is not
yet ready for a publication.

The writers' workshops will take place at the symposium in Bordeaux on
May 22, 2008.


Papers for the main track must be submitted electronically, preferably
as PDF or PostScript file (level 1 or 2). However, submissions in RTF
or Word format are also accepted. Initial submissions may not exceed
15 pages in the J.UCS style, including all appendices. (Invited papers
for the journal publication will have a page limitation of 25 pages in
the same format.) See the symposium website for more details,
including about the submission procedure.

Papers for the work-in-progress track may be in PDF, PostScript level
1 or 2, RTF or Word, and may not exceed 25 pages. There are no further
requirements on their format. Papers for the work-in-progress track
must be sent via email to pascal.costanza at vub.ac.be.
