There will be another instance of the European Lisp Symposium this year: in Milan, Italy, from May 27-29, 2009. It's very good that this event takes place so relatively shortly after the successful European Lisp Symposium 2008 about one year ago. Special kudos go to Marco Antoniotti for the local organization and Antonio Leitao for having assembled a great program committee.
The rates for attending the symposium are again very reasonable: Students can get in for as low as €60, and other participants for reasonable €100, when taking advantage of the early registration rates. See the registration page at the symposium website for more details.
More importantly, though: You can still submit papers to the symposium. The deadline for paper submissions is February 4, 2009, and the program committee accepts both original contributions, including research papers and experience reports, as well as descriptions of work in progress. Again, see the symposium website for more details.
