LUV '92 -- Call For Papers

                         CALL FOR PAPERS

               1992 Lisp Users and Vendors Conference

The Second International Lisp User and Vendor Conference (LUV '92)
will be held on August 10-14, 1992, at the U.S. Grant Hotel in 
San Diego, CA, and will be centered around the theme of "Delivering 
Business Success with Lisp".  The conference is sponsored in part by 
the Association of Lisp Users.

The conference schedule includes two days of tutorials; a day of panel 
sessions, keynote addresses, technical paper presentations, and a 
student paper and application competition; a day of vendor presentations
and demonstrations of new products; and more.

Papers submitted to the conference should focus on experience with
practical applications of Lisp.  The material must clearly demonstrate 
a practical value from the use of the Lisp language or Lisp technology;
as such, papers need not be especially innovative nor original, but 
preference will be given to previously undisseminated reports and
experiences.  Topics in the area of programming languages and
environments are welcome; but untested or purely theoretical ideas
without a clear direction towards the theme of the conference would
be less suitable.

Authors should submit 7 copies of their papers to the program chair at 
the address below.  The length of the written papers should not exceed 
10 pages (with font size at least 10-point or larger.)  Accepted papers
will appear in the written proceedings, which will be distributed at 
the conference.  The authors of certain selected papers will be invited
to make a 20-minute verbal presentation at the technical talks sessions
during the conference.  Time constraints will likely prevent the 
presentation of all accepted papers.

Submissions must be received by June 1, 1991.  They should include a 
return postal address and a telephone number; an electronic mail address
should also be included, if available.  Authors will be notified of the 
acceptance or rejection of their papers by July 6, 1992.  Corrections 
and alterations to the papers, if any, may be done up until July 24, 
1992, which is the final date for receipt of a camera-ready copy.

Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign a release for 
publication in the conference proceedings.  Authors may retain the 
copyright themselves if they wish by installing their own copyright
notice in the paper. Previously copyrighted material may still be 
acceptable depending on the permission to publish; in this case, 
the previous copyright and notice of permission should appear in
the paper.

Persons interested in the student competition should contact the 
student coordinator for submission requirements and further details.
Both technical papers and descriptions of Lisp applications are valid
entries.  Submission and acceptance dates, as well as acceptable
themes, are the same as for other authors.
