The deadline for submissions to the 2010 European Lisp Symposium is now less than one week away. In the meantime, I'm pleased to be able to announce the invited speakers for the symposium:

  • Matthias Felleisen, of Northeastern University and the TeachScheme! project will speak on the topic of PLT Scheme;

  • Nick Levine, independent consultant at Ravenbrook, has twenty years of Lisp experience after a serendipitous encounter, and over that time has taken on roles from system implementor to contractor; from educator to conference organiser; and most currently, author of a new book on Lisp;

  • Kent Pitman, with his background of over three decades of involvement in the design, implementation and use of Lisp-family languages, will offer historical perspectives and thoughts for the future.

I hope that this lineup provides additional motivation for people to complete their submissions!
