  Registration for the 3rd European Lisp Symposium (ELS 2010) is now
  open at [http://www.european-lisp-symposium.org/].

Scope and Programme Highlights 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  The purpose of the European Lisp Symposium is to provide a forum for
  the discussion of all aspects of the design, implementation and
  application of any of the Lisp dialects.  We encourage everyone
  interested in Lisp to participate.

  As well as presentations of the accepted technical papers and
  tutorials, the programme features the following highlights:

  - Kent Pitman of HyperMeta Inc. will offer reflections on Lisp Past,
    Present and Future;

  - Pascal Costanza will lead a tutorial session on Parallel
    Programming in Common Lisp;

  - Matthias Felleisen of PLT will talk about languages for creating
    programming languages;

  - there will be opportunities for attendees to give lightning talks
    and demos of late-breaking work.

Social events 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
  - Symposium banquet (included with registration)
  - Excursion to Sintra (optional), for six centuries the favourite
    Summer residence of the Kings of Portugal, who were attracted by
    cool climates and the beauty of the town's setting.
