APL Implementer's Workshop
The APL Implementer's Workshop (briefly APL Futures Workshop) is an event started by Garth Foster in 1969 for APL implementers to share information and discuss language design. The conference has no official name; while it may be called the APL Implementer's Conference or APL Implementer's Workshop, it is often known simply as "Minnowbrook" after the name of the conference center at Syracuse University where it is usually held. Since 2011, the conference has been held at Minnowbrook on every odd-numbered year. Attendance is by invitation, with between 20 and 50 participants: the Minnowbrook conference center holds at most 64.
After most conferences an attendee publishes a short and informal article with notes on which topics were discussed and other events that took place. Detailed minutes are not kept and no proceedings are published. However, presenters may publish separately: Bob Smith keeps papers for his presentations since 2010 on his APL Projects page.
