Call for Papers: 1990 ACM Conf. on Lisp & Functional Programming

			    1990 ACM Conference on
		       Lisp and Functional Programming

		       Nice, France, June 27--29, 1990

The 1990 ACM Conference on LISP and Functional Programming is the sixth in a
series of biennial conferences devoted to the theory, design, and
implementation of programming languages and systems related to LISP,
functional programming, and symbolic computation.  The conference is jointly
sponsored by ACM SIGPLAN, SIGACT, and SIGART in cooperation with SIGSAM.

Papers presented at the conference must include new ideas or experimental
results that have not been previously published.  Previous conferences have
included papers in the following areas: programming language concepts and
facilities; implementation methods; machine architectures; semantic
foundations; programming logics; and program development environments.  Beyond
these areas, authors are strongly encouraged to submit papers that introduce
important new topics that are relevant to functional programming and symbolic

Authors should submit 11 copies of a technical summary of a prospective
conference paper.  The length of the summary should not exceed 3,000 words (10
pages double-spaced or typeset 11-point on 16-point spacing).  Since the
committee expects to receive a large number of submissions, the summary should
be organized so that it is easily understood.  It is important for the summary
to identify what has been accomplished, explain why it is significant, and
compare it with previous work.

Submissions must be received by DECEMBER 1, 1989.  They should include
a return postal address and an electronic mail address if it is available.
Authors will be notified of the acceptance or rejection of their papers by 
FEBRUARY 5, 1990.  Full versions of the accepted papers must be received in
camera-ready form by MARCH 23, 1990.  Authors of accepted papers will
be required to sign ACM copyright release forms.  Proceedings will be
distributed at the conference and will later by available for purchase from

The conference will take place at the Acropolis Convention Center, in Nice.
Nice is the major city on the French Riviera.  It is pleasantly warm in June:
daily highs average 78 F (25 C); overnight lows average 58 F (19 C).
Nice has a major airport. If you wish to travel before or after the
conference, you will easily reach other cities in Europe.  Many people go to
the French Riviera in summer -- to go to the beach, to play tennis, to hike in
the mountains or to gamble in the casinos -- so you should plan ahead.
