 CFP: ACM SAC '96 Programming Languages Track

The attached CFP may be of interest to those of you who are
interested in getting the word on APL and J out to the Great
Unwashed Masses. If APL is going to survive, we HAVE to get  
the message out to people outside the APLxx community.

Please contribute a paper or other submission to this conference!

>PROGRAMMING LANGUAGES TRACK
>===========================

>A special track on programming languages will be held at SAC '96.  It
>will be a forum for engineers, researchers and practitioners
>throughout the world to share technical ideas and experiences
>relating to implementation and application of programming languages.
>Original papers and tutorial (half or full day) and panel proposals
>are invited in all areas of programming language technology.  Major
>topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

>AI Languages                            Automatic Parallelization
>Automatic Programming                   Compiling Techniques
>Database Programming Languages          Formal Semantics
>Functional Programming                  Logic Programming
>Meta and Higher-order Programming       Object-Oriented Programming
>Programming Languages for               Specification Languages
>     Parallel/Distributed Execution

>GUIDELINES FOR SUBMISSION
>=========================

>Original papers from the above-mentioned areas will be considered.
>This includes three categories of submissions: 1) original and
>unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative computing applications
>in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education
>and industry; and 3) reports of successful technology transfer to new
>problem domains.  Each category of submissions will be reviewed by
>peer groups appropriate to that category.  Accepted papers in all
>categories will be published in the symposium proceedings.  Expanded
>versions of selected papers from all categories will be considered
>for publication in the ACM/SIGAPP quarterly Applied Computing Review
>or one of the other participating SIGs' publications.

>Submission guidelines must be strictly followed:

>*   Submit six (6) copies of original manuscripts to the following SAC  '96
>    Programming Languages Track Co-Chair.

>    Barrett R. Bryant

Of course, Bob is right. But maybe the impact of conferences is often
somewhat overestimated. In my view, more important is convincing not
only managements but also yourself.
Can you (the APL world) build commercial APL systems that                                                
  - work better
  - are better maintainable
  - run faster
  - are more reliable
  - are more flexible in a changing world
  - have better guaranties for continuity
  - in shorter time                                                                            
  - at lower costs
than systems in other environments?
If you could answer seven out of eight questions with 'Y' (which is
possible in most cases) then still you have to 'convert' 95% of the
programming world to get it accepted.
(Remember John Foe with 'his' Sisal?)
Further, conferences only cover only the 'top of the iceberg' as{*filter*}
Holt stated: there is more APL than we know (some suppliers do
probably know!)
There are still lots of areas for which APL is the ONLY environment!
(or have cripple or poor systems).
So, back to business!
