This year, the SLUG board is pleased to announce that we are sponsoring
a multi-vendor Lisp Users Group meeting this year, instead of the annual
SLUG meeting. We felt that such a meeting would be more advantageous to
Symbolics users than a purely Symbolics users group meeting. This
meeting will be run as SLUG meetings have been in the past (all of the
organizers are SLUG officers or members), with a slight modification:
instead of devoting a full day of the conference to discussing Symbolics
products and plans, each of the participating vendors will hold parallel
user group sessions for these discussions, from 1 to 8 hours in length,
depending on the amount of material to be covered.
I have already posted the announcement to several lists, including SLUG,
but I'm including a copy here for those of you who deleted it before
If you'd like to help, let me know. I especially need help at coercing
cash out of the vendors.
The first annual Lisp User's and Vendor's conference has been scheduled
for October 28-November 1, in Gaithersburg, MD, 20 minutes outside of
Washington, D.C. The theme of this years conference is "Developing
Successful Applications using Lisp", and will cover such topics as
language standardization, object-oriented programming, user interface
design tools, rapid prototyping, and delivering applications.
Several major Lisp vendors (including Franz, Lucid and Symbolics,) have
already committed to giving tutorials, technical and marketing
presentations, and demonstrations. Vendors of Lisp-based applications
software, such as OODBMS and AI tools are also participating.
Additional participants and sponsors are still being sought.
The conference begins with a two day tutorial program, on such topics as
CLOS, Advanced CLOS, CLIM, and code portability. The following three
days will be a mix of presentations, demonstrations and workshop
discussions. Technical presentations will be given on topics such as
language standardization, programming environments, and performance
issues. Vendors will host user group sessions to discuss and
demonstrate new products. Papers will be presented by developers of
successful Lisp applications (a call for papers is being prepared and
will appear on this list shortly.)
Program contents are being finalized now - vendors of Lisp or Lisp-based
applications wishing to participate or sponsors are encouraged to have a
representative contact me immediately. For those wishing to attend,
printed program announcements and registration information will be
available from the participating vendors July 12th.
