    Important News
    - Full programme now online
    - Invited speakers below
    - Registrations are open


    The European Lisp Symposium is a premier forum for the discussion and dissemination of all aspects of design, implementation and application
    of any of the Lisp dialects, including Common Lisp, Scheme, Emacs
    Lisp, Clojure, Racket, ACL2, AutoLisp, ISLISP, Dylan, SKILL, Hy, Shen,
    Carp, Janet, uLisp, Picolisp, Gamelisp, TXR, and so on. We encourage
    everyone interested in Lisp to participate.

    The European Lisp Symposium invites high quality papers about novel
    research results, insights and lessons learned from practical
    applications, and educational perspectives. We also encourage
    submissions about known ideas as long as they are presented in a new
    setting and/or in a highly elegant way.

    Topics include but are not limited to:

    - context-, aspect-, domain-oriented and generative programming
    - macro-, reflective-, meta- and/or rule-based development approaches
    - language design and implementation
    - language integration, inter-operation and deployment
    - development methodologies, support and environments
    - educational approaches and perspectives
    - experience reports and case studies

    Invited talks
    Building SICMUtils, the Atelier of Abstractions -- Sam Ritchie

    SICMUtils is a Clojure library designed for interactive exploration of mathematical physics. It is simultaneously a work of persuasive
    writing, a collection of essays on functional pearls and computational
    ideas, a stable of workhorse functional abstractions, and a practical
    place to work and visualize algorithms and physical systems, on a
    server or in the browser.

    How do you build a library like this? This talk will go through the architecture of SICMUtils, based on many of the ideas of "additive
    programming" from Gerald Sussman and Chris Hanson's latest book,
    Software Design for Flexibility. We'll look at surprising examples of
    the system becoming easier to extend over time. Clojure's embrace of
    its host platform lets us use the best modern work in Javascript for visualization, while keeping the horsepower of our servers for real
    work. Lisp's particular elegance will shine throughout.

    Creating a Common Lisp Implementation -- Robert Strandh

    Being dissatisfied with the way current Common Lisp implementations
    are written, and with the duplication of system code between different implementations, we started the SICL project in 2008. The initial idea
    was to create modules that the creators of Common Lisp implementations
    could use to create a complete system from an initial minimal core.
    But this idea was unsatisfactory because it required each module to be
    written in a subset of Common Lisp. So instead, we decided to use the
    full language to implement these modules, effectively making them
    useless to an implementation using traditional bootstrapping
    techniques. We therefore decided to also create a new Common Lisp implementation (also named SICL), that could use those modules.

    A crucial element is a bootstrapping technique that can handle these
    modules. In this spirit, we have developed several modules, including
    an implementation of CLOS which is also an important element of
    bootstrapping. Lately, we have increased our level of ambition in that
    we want to extract those modules as separate (and separately
    maintained) repositories, which requires us to deal with code during bootstrapping that was not specifically written for SICL.

    In our talk, we describe this evolution of ambition, and its
    consequences to bootstrapping, in more detail. We also give an
    overview of several new techniques we created, some of which have been published (at ICL and ELS) and some of which have not. Finally, we
    discuss the future of the project, and other projects for which we
    imagine SICL to be a base.

    Lisp as Renaissance Workshop: A Lispy Tour through Mathematical
    Physics -- Sam Ritchie

    Lisp is an exquisite medium for the communication of computational
    ideas. From our most accurate observations of physical reality up
    through chemistry, biology, and cognition, the universe seems to be
    computing itself; modeling and simulating these systems in machines
    has led to incredible technological wealth.

    Deep principles and beautiful abstractions seem to drive these
    systems, but they have always been hard to discover; and we are
    floundering at the computational frontiers of intelligence, synthetic
    biology and control systems for our climate. The only way to push
    forward is to build powerful tools that can communicate and teach.

    This talk will take a tour through SICMUtils, a Lisp system designed
    as a workshop for conducting serious work in mathematical physics and
    sharing those explorations in a deeply interactive, multiplayer way.
    The library’s growth parallels our human scientific history; hopefully
    tools like this will help us write the next chapter.
