Call for Papers
quasiconf is a pan-Lisp conference which means it is open for talks
and workshops covering any kind of Lisp dialect or Lisp inspired
language. For example, we’ve welcomed
Emacs (Lisp) last
year, as well as some meta-topics relevant to both Lisp
newcomers. So if
you have something you’d like to present that fits this spirit, submit
your proposal until August 1, 2013 through the
FrOSCon CfP system. Choose “Lisp” for
“Track”. Your session may take 1 or 2 hours. Here’s a (non-normative)
list of topic ideas:
Lisp in the Real World
Lispy languages are often regarded as academic and impractical for solving real world problems. Do you have a project which shows that this is not the case? How do you use Lisp to handle your daily chores? Do you have a business based on Lisp or on software written in Lisp? Talk about it!
quasiconf will be hosted as a subconference of FrOSCon which
attracts people of many different interests and non-Lisp backgrounds
it would be nice to have talks on why learning Lisp might be
worthwhile for them.
Did you create your own Lisp using Unicode parentheses or did you implement a Scheme in Minecraft? Show us what it’s good at and why we’d want to use it!
Consing a Community
Do you host a Lisp user group in your town? Do you provide support on mailing lists, IRC channels or wikis? Share your experience with us: Tell us what works and what doesn’t and how you starve the trolls.
If you use Lisp for composing music, crafting visualizations or making games then this is your opportunity to show it off. Lisp is not just about code as data, it’s also about programming as art!
When and Where
As last year,
quasiconf will be a subconference at
FrOSCon (Free and Open Source Software
Conference) which will take place during the weekend on 24th and 25th
of August 2013 in St. Augustin, Germany. There will be no extra
entrance fee other than the
regular FrOSCon ticket. Consult
their website for more information.
