APL2007, Montreal, October 21-23

The APL 2007 conference, sponsored by ACM SIGAPL, had as its principal theme "Arrays and Objects" and was appropriately co-located with OOPSLA 2007, in Montreal. APL 2007 started with a tutorial day on Sunday, October 21, followed by a two-day program on Monday and Tuesday, October 22 and 23.

The Proceedings of APL2007 will be mailed to all APL2007 registrants and to all SIGAPL members as the December issue of APL Quote Quad.

Approximately 40 people attended our conference, and technical contributions were very much appreciated. Additional content here appears as a matter of record, and to act as a source for future efforts. A complete conference report and some technical content that will not appear in the Proceedings will be available here.
