Lisp, which was focused as a 'language for AI' during the AI boom in the
80's, is continuing to progress and is used as an advanced intelligent
software environment in various application fields, including advanced
hardware technology and networking.

Some of the most important software technologies of the 90's are
expected to grow out of development technologies which were/are
pioneered by the Lisp community, like powerful editors, incremental
programming, intelligent user interface, symbolic visualization, and
object oriented programming.

In recognition of the importance of Lisp to these successful emerging
technologies, JPAL'91 is organized as a forum for exhibiting the Lisp
state-of-the-arts from all over the world, for exchanging information
and ideas, for promoting Lisp, and for contributing to the computer
science related fields.

With this context, both a technical forum focused on the current state
of Lisp applications and an exhibition of user and vendor projects and
products are planned.

Admission to the exhibition is free.  A corner for user demonstrations
will be provided, while trade show-like booths are prepared for
commercial vendors.  Special talks (invited) from Europe and USA at the
technical forum are planned to present a global view.

Come and join the JPAL experience.
