TCL 2007 First call for participation/Papers.

In September 2007 The U.S. 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 to
"tcl2007 at tcl dot tk". Pretty much anything Tcl/Tk goes
however in the past we have had papers on topics such as:

* Application of Tcl/Tk in industries as diverse as engineering,
industrial controls, broadcasting, financial services, medical
and electronic design
* Networking with Tcl/Tk, including distributed applications and
network management
* New widgets and techniques for GUI design with Tk
* Simulation and application steering with Tcl/Tk
* Tcl/Tk on handheld and embedded devices
* New Tcl extensions and add-ons, including Tcllib and Tklib
* Tcl/Tk centric operating environments

Author schedule:

* Submit abstracts and tutorial proposals to tcl2007 at tcl dot
tk by June 15, 2007
* Authors will be notified of acceptance in early July.
* Author materials should be submitted back to the
procedings editor by September 15, 2007

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 confrerence 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):

* Jeff Hobbs: The Tcl Guy, Tcl project Release Manager and
* Clif Flynt: Author of _Tcl/Tk:_A_Developer's_Guide_
* Steve Landers: StarKit and Critcl co-developer
* Mike Doyle: President of Eolas
