The Association of Lisp Users is pleased to announce the 2010
International Lisp Conference, to be held in Reno, Nevada, in
collocation with SPLASH 2010.

This year's program consists of tutorials for beginners and advanced
users, a selection of prominent invited speakers, an excellent
technical session, lightning talks and an open forum.

All ILC and other SPLASH co-located registrants have free admittance
to the ILC tutorials.  Note that these tutorials are double-tracked
across from the early-morning SPLASH keynote addresses.

Scope:
~~~~~~

Lisp is one of the greatest ideas from computer science and a major
influence for almost all programming languages and all sufficiently
complex software applications.

The International Lisp Conference is a forum for the discussion of
Lisp and, in particular, the design, implementation and application of
any of the Lisp dialects.  We encourage everyone interested in Lisp to
participate.
