22nd EuroForth Conference
15th to 17th September, 2006
EuroForth is an annual conference on the Forth programming language, stack
machines, and related topics, and has been held since 1985. The 22nd
EuroForth was held at Sidney Sussex College in Cambridge, England, for the
first time. The two previous EuroForths were held in
Schloss Dagstuhl, Germany (2004)
Santander, Spain (2005)
Information on earlier conferences can be found at the EuroForth
Since 1994, EuroForth has a refereed and a non-refereed track. For the refereed
track, six papers were submitted (a new record), and three were accepted
(50% acceptance rate). Each paper was sent to three program committee members
for review. A total of nineteen reviews was produced for the six papers. This
year, none of the program committee members submitted a paper. I thank the
authors for their papers, and the reviewers for their often extensive reviews.
Five papers and abstracts were submitted to the non-refereed track in time to
be included in these proceedings. Workshops and social events complemented the
program. We are grateful to Janet Nelson for organizing this year’s EuroForth.
The conference was proceeded by a Forth 200x standards meeting.
