International Lisp Conference (Tuesday)

Tue 8:00-4:30 pm - Bonanza A & B
International Lisp Conference
Program ChairAntonio Leitao, Instituto Superior Técnico, Portugal

Lisp isn't just for artificial intelligence any more! It's a fast, robust, general-purpose language. It's extensible, letting you create domain-specific languages easily.

Lisp has been used successfully for shrink-wrapped educational software, airline fare search, commercial web sites, editing and publishing musical scores, controlling NASA's "Deep Space 1" satellite, telephone billing, computer animation, video games for the Sony Playstation 2, computer-assisted music composition, symbolic algebra, sophisticated web frameworks, text editors, collaborative authoring, roguelike games, bioinformatics, data mining, electrical and mechanical CAD, signal processing in missile defense, genomics, financial risk analysis, real-time stock trading, and decision support.
