It is the annual international conference of ACM's SIGAPL, which is making a very significant contribution of personal and financial energy.
The origins of the APL92 initiative stretch back a very long way, at least to a visit following the APL84 conference held in Helsinki, Finland, by Ken Iverson (originator of the APL notation) and Robert Benecky (current vicechair of ACM SIGAPL).
It is also worth mentioning that ACM's NY/SIGAPL local group sponsors two Soviet members of ACM and that APL91 in conjunction with ACM SIGAPL have arranged support of four Soviet attendees at APL91 (In Palo Alto, Calif.) through individual, corporate and local group contributions.
Sponsor: SIGPLAN, SIGMOD, SIGACT, and SIGAPL
