The purpose of the European Lisp Symposium is to provide a forum for
the discussion and dissemination of all aspects of design,
implementation and application of any of the Lisp dialects, including
Common Lisp, Scheme, Emacs Lisp, Clojure, Racket, ACL2, AutoLisp,
ISLISP, Dylan, ECMAScript, SKILL and so on. We encourage everyone
interested in Lisp to participate.
The European Lisp Symposium 2020 invites high quality papers about
novel research results, insights and lessons learned from practical
applications, and educational perspectives. We also encourage
submissions about known ideas as long as they are presented in a new
setting and/or in a highly elegant way.
This year's focus will be directed towards "Compilers".
We especially invite submissions in the following areas:
- Compiler techniques
- Compiler passes
- Compiler compilers
- Showcasing of industrial or experimental compilers
- Code generation
- Compiler verification
- Compiler optimizations
- JIT compilers
Contributions are also welcome in other areas, including but not
- Context-, aspect-, domain-oriented and generative programming
- Macro-, reflective-, meta- and/or rule-based development approaches
- Language design and implementation
- Language integration, inter-operation and deployment
- Development methodologies, support and environments
- Educational approaches and perspectives
- Experience reports and case studies
We invite submissions in the following forms:
* Papers: Technical papers of up to 8 pages that describe original
results or explain known ideas in new and elegant ways.
* Demonstrations: Abstracts of up to 4 pages for demonstrations of
tools, libraries, and applications.
* Tutorials: Abstracts of up to 4 pages for in-depth presentations
about topics of special interest for at least 90 minutes and up to
All submissions should be formatted following the ACM SIGS guidelines
and include ACM Computing Classification System 2012 concepts and
terms. Submissions should be uploaded to Easy Chair, at the following
Note: to help us with the review process please indicate the type of
