LUV'95: Final Call For Papers



				AUGUST 14-18, 1995

			        5 Cambridge Parkway
			     CAMBRIDGE, MA 02142-1299
				   (617) 491-3600

    Attention authors and potential authors of papers on the use of Dynamic
    Object-Oriented Languages (e.g. Lisp, Scheme, Dylan).

    As is now traditional, the schedule for this year's Lisp Users and Vendors
    Conference (LUV '95) provides for technical papers. In addition LUV'95 now
    features a STUDENT SUBMISSION CONTEST, see below.

    To complement more theoretical conferences on Functional Programming,
    we are looking for concrete, practical papers presenting issues of
    importance to those who build or intend to build their commercial
    business in today's marketplace using Dynamic Object-Oriented products.

    This is a chance to share your success stories, discuss your techniques,
    or even document technical and social obstacles you're facing that you
    haven't yet managed to overcome.  The conference brings together experts
    who are focused on making Dynamic OO succeed in the marketplace, and there
    is no better forum for you to engage in a public dialog about the use of
    Dynamic Object-Oriented Languages today.

    SCOPE AND CONTENT.  Material in papers must clearly demonstrate a
     practical value from the use of Dynamic Object-Oriented technology; as
     such, papers need not be especially innovative or original.  Direct 
     and simple applications of Dynamic OO techniques to rapidly and
     effectively solve practical problems will be noticed. Preference
     will be given to previously undisseminated reports or experiences.  Topics
     in the area of programming languages and environments are welcome.  These
     include programming with multiple paradigms, generation of domain specific
     languages, integration with foreign languages, dynamic object distribution,
     distributed objects recycling, persistent object storages and databases.
     Specific application examples are welcome including issues on software
     design and architecture, product delivery, real-time, small platforms, 
     graphical user interfaces, interface builders, CLIM and portability.
     Untested or purely theoretical ideas are less suitable but will also
     be considered. The full range of Lisp dialects, and Dylan are appropriate
     to this conference, including (but not limited to) Common Lisp, GNU Emacs
     Lisp, Scheme, ISLISP, Eulisp, DKLISP, JKLISP, XLISP, AutoLisp, and
     Interleaf Lisp.

    SUBMISSIONS.  Authors should submit an electronic copy (text only is fine) 
     of their paper submission not later than MONDAY JUNE 26 1995 including
     LUV'95 SUBMISSION on the subject line to:


     or, THREE (3) printed copies of their paper submission to LUV '95 at
     the following address (must be received on or before MONDAY JUNE 26 1995):

	     LUV '95 Paper Chair
	     Att: O.B. Clarisse, Room 4F-413
	     AT&T Bell Laboratories
	     2000 N Naperville Rd
	     Naperville, Il 60566

     The length of the written papers should not exceed TEN (10) pages
     (numbered, font size 10pt or larger).  Submissions should include
     an electronic mail address (if available), a return postal address
     (for printed paper submissions), and a telephone number.

    STUDENT PAPERS CONTEST.  There will be a separate track for Student papers.
     Submission and acceptance dates, as well as acceptable themes, are 
     the same as for other authors.  Accepted papers will appear in the
     written proceedings (please see following instructions regarding 
     copyright and permission to publish requirements). The best student
     paper will be celebrated and the winner will receive free admission
     to LUV'95 conference including admission to THREE (3) tutorial sessions.

    DEADLINES.  Please mark your calendar with the following dates:
      26 JUNE 95  Deadline for receipt of papers (or extended abstracts).
       7 JULY 95  Last day for notification of acceptance or rejection.
       7 JULY 95  Deadline for "normal" registration. (After this, rates go up.)
      28 JULY 95  Deadline for receipt of final copy of accepted papers.
    COPYRIGHT.  Authors of accepted paper 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
     published depending on the permission to publish; in this case, the
     previous copyright and notice of permission should appear in the paper.
    PRESENTATION OF ACCEPTED PAPERS.  Accepted papers will appear in the
     written proceedings, which will be distributed at the conference and might
     or might not also be distributed in some other fashion after 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 might prevent the verbal presentation
     of some accepted papers.)
