After a summer hiatus, we're ready to start up with
another round of Denver Area Lisp User Group meetings.
Here's the September meeting announcement:

Topic: Knowledge-based Simulation Environment
Presenter: Doug Williams
Date: Monday, September 27th
Time: 7pm - 8:45pm
Venue: Boulder Public Library - George Reynolds Branch
(Note: this is a different Boulder Public Library
location from the one where we had the Kenny Tilton
meeting). 3595 Table Mesa Drive, Boulder (information

Summary: (Doug's summary)

    I am attempting to recreate - and extend - in PLT
Scheme the knowledge-based simulation environment I
used to have in Symbolics Common Lisp. It will consist
of three PLT Scheme collections: Science Collection,
Simulation Collection, and Inferencing Collection. The
PLT Scheme Science Collection is a port of portions of
the GNU Scientific Library (GSL) that provides a
foundation for inplementing the other collections as
well as providing data analysis functions. The PLT
Scheme Science Collection is largely implemented. The
PLT Scheme Simulation Collection provides a
discrete-event simulation engine based on a process
interaction model. The PLT Scheme Simulation
Collection has been prototyped. The PLT Scheme
Inferencing Collection provides a rule-based
inferencing engine.

    In this talk, I will present the PLT Scheme
Science Collection as well as discussion how to use -
and extend - PLoT Scheme for data analysis.

              o Statistics
              o Histograms
              o Chebyshev Approximations
        * Using PLoT Scheme
              o PLoT Scheme Overvire
              o Extending PLoT Scheme
              o Histogram Plot
              o Step Plot
        * Future Plans
              o PLT Scheme Simulation Collection
              o PLT Scheme Inferencing Collection
        * Demo and Q&A 

Mark your calendars - see you there!
