LUV'95 Papers Presentation Program

		Royal Sonesta Hotel
		Cambridge, MA
		August 14-18, 1995

This year we have an exciting program of innovative reports on the
application of Dynamic Object Oriented Languages and techniques
to solve practical problems and advance the state of the art in
information communication and computation. Several papers clearly
demonstrate simple, effective and elegant solutions to practical problems.

Join us Tuesday August 15th in Session 1 as we discover:
1.1. A simple and elegant strategy used to make and existing CLIM
     application broadly accessible through the World Wide Web (WWW).
1.2. How CL abstractions are applied to the theoretical analysis
     and design of information retrieval systems.
1.3. A creative an effective approach using Scheme
     and Objects to rapidly build a parallel achitecture simulator.
1.4. A self generating publication written in "noweb" to demonstrate both the
     effectiveness of Literate programming and an example implementation
     of Engines in Lisp.
1.5. STRUCTURELAB - how the flexibility of CL is applied to seamlessly
     integrate multiple heterogenous systems into one environment for
     the analysis of RNA structures (this system can also be viewed on the WWW).

Join us Wednesday August 16th and Thursday August 17th in Session 2
as we discover:
2.1. An application of CLOS to support reusability and experimentation
     in programmin with capabilities.
2.2. An application of the MetaObject Protocol to integrate
     Persistent Metadata in your CLOS environment.
2.3. An approach to dynamic object distribution using remote delegation.
2.4. A small embedded language called "L" (subset of CL) used to breath
     life into small autonomous robots responding in real-time
     to sensory inputs.
2.5. An approach using CLOS object structuring techniques for
     seamless information retrieval and intelligent data analysis
     in the GeneIS system.
2.6. A Graphical User Interface Builder using
     CLIM to generate gadget-oriented graphical interfaces.

See the detailed paper presentation program below.
