The Lisp User's & Vendors  conference [LUV 93] will be in Cambridge, USA
Aug 9 -> 13, 93
Usually there are tutorials but they aren't necessarily about basic Common Lisp.
Last year there were tutorials about CLIM, Error Handling. etc.
Most of what you need to know to program in Lisp is not basic lisp but
about peripheral pieces of software [like window systems], effective use of tools 
like an editor, inspector, stepper, and, esp if you want to write a big program, 
strategy for managing complexity.

Paradigms of AI by Peter Norvig is huge and good, though it doesn't talk about
tools much, probably because they are CL-implementation dependent.
