Lisp has been supporting the world's most complex applications since it was created, 50 years ago. Where will Lisp go in the next 50 years? What's unique about it? How can we join together to make it more widely used? How can we strengthen the Lisp open-source community?
Come meet the top Lisp experts and practitioners in the world. Learn how to get the most out of Lisp. Find about about the latest developments from research and industry. The conference is a rare opportunity for face-to-face interaction, sharing knowledge and ideas with the experts of the worldwide Lisp community. Students are especially welcome. Everyone will have a great time!
