Subject: Presentation at European Lisp Symposium...

Hi, This may be interesting for LispWorks users: I am going to give a tutorial on parallel programming in Common Lisp at the European Lisp Symposium, which takes place in Lisbon, Portugal on May 6-7, 2010. While I will try to give a general overview of the field, including the various parallel programming approaches, I will primarily use the multiprocessing facilities of LispWorks as examples. The reason is that I consider the support for SMP in LispWorks as the most advanced and most well-thought out one of the Common Lisp implementations I checked (including Clozure and SBCL, but not yet Allegro Common Lisp, who don't offer SMP yet, so their APIs may still change considerably - at least that's what I would expect), and maybe even of any Lisp dialect (yes, including Clojure ;). Here is the link for the symposium: http://www.european-lisp-symposium.org/ Cheers, Pascal -- Pascal Costanza, mailto:[email protected], http://p-cos.net Vrije Universiteit Brussel Software Languages Lab Pleinlaan 2, B-1050 Brussel, Belgium
