TCL 2007 First call for participation/Papers.
In September 2007, the North American Tcl conference returns to the historic French Quarter of the city of New Orleans. Join us for what promises to be the best Tcl conference yet. Even better, contribute a paper, be prepared to talk about a work in progress, or join in on the lively "Birds of a Feather" discussions that may range in topic anywhere from "Using the Tile widget set" to "Obsolete weaponry."
Tcl 2007 will be held at the Bourbon Orleans Hotel in New Orleans, LA. Tutorial sessions on various topics will be held September 24-25, with the conference itself running from September 26-28.
Submit abstracts and proposals for tutorials to the Tcl 2007 program comittee by sending plain text proposals to "tcl2007 at tcl dot tk". Pretty much anything Tcl/Tk goes; however in the past we have had papers on topics such as:
The following invited presentations have already been confirmed:
Damon Courtney will give our Keynote talk:
"Building native-looking cross-platform GUIs is easy"
Ttk (that's themed Tk to you and me) is a whole new way of developing cross-platform GUIs with all the ease-of-use, familiarity and stability of the Tcl/Tk toolkit that's been around for over a decade. It makes your Windows applications look like Windows. It makes your OSX applications look like OSX. It makes your UNIX applications look like... well... whatever UNIX looks like these days.
Jeff Hobbs Tcl release manager will provide his annual entertaining "ActiveState of Tcl" talk, and will provide us with the actual scheduled release date of Tcl 8.5.
Miguel Sofer, Tcl Core member and Byte Code interpreter/compiler expert, will talk about his involvement in Tcl core development as well as his recent contributions toward 8.5 and beyond.
Finally, no Tcl conference is complete without the availability of true experts of the language, with which you can discuss your problems and how to best solve them. This year we have already confirmed the attendance of (in no particular order):
