ILC 2003 Preliminaries

The ALU has begun preparations for the 2003 International Lisp Conference. It looks like the conference will be located in New York this year, and will have a good mix of speakers from industry and academia.

In a bold move the ALU is attempting to put this conference on without financial backing from Franz. Which means that the ALU needs to raise money somehow--a strong possibility is that they'll try to get people to pay for ALU “memberships”, though it's not clear what the benefits of membership would be.

A bold plan, and it's not a bad idea to aim for more independence, but it does seem a bit risky. I hope they figure things out soon.
