The Conference

The Asociation of Lisp Users (ALU) is proud to announce the International
Lisp Conference 2002. The conference will take place at the Holiday Inn in
San Francisco's Financial District from October 27th through October 31st.

At the start of the 21st century we see the challenges ahead:
Applications will be more dynamic than ever and will be part of the fibers
of the Web, software and hardware robots will be our assistants, and biology
will be source of both computational problems and programming metaphors.
Applications will be customized to individuals who happen upon them, our
needs and desires will be served by artificial beings, and our software may
more accurately resemble a termite nest than Rube Goldberg inventions.

Will our mainstream concepts, approaches, and languages hold up? Where might
we turn for progress, inspiration, and technology? Was it right in front of
us all along? The International Lisp Conference addresses these questions
and more.

This four-day conference will bring together a mesh of brilliant minds from
a diverse international community that involves or borders the Lisp family
of languages. The conference will be uniquely multi-themed in nature, and
each day will paint a different theme. The themes  are  Lisp and Functional
Languages, Web Applications, Robotics and BioInformatics. We have already
gathered an impressive list of distinguished speakers from each of these
communities that promise to deliver a captivating a
stimulating conference experience.
