Scientific presentations

 One of the conference activities will be a forum for researchers to present scientific projects. Researchers will give presentations on their scientific projects for which they have used or are using Pascal-based languages or technologies to create tools. The sessions will be led by Dr. Sergio Miguel Tomé, Dr. Johannes W. Dietrich and Dr. Ángel Luis Sánchez Lázaro. This event will allow scientists to exchange information, and future collaborations may emerge.

Title:  Lazarus and FreePascal.

Summary:  Lazarus is a cross-platform IDE for Free Pascal. It includes. Free Pascal is a GPL'ed compiler that runs on Linux, Windows, macOS, FreeBSD and others. Free Pascal is designed to be able to understand and compile Object Pascal syntax, which is OOP. Unlike Java which strives to be a write once run anywhere, Lazarus and Free Pascal strives for write once compile anywhere. Since the exact same compiler is available on all of the above platforms it means you don't need to do any recoding to produce identical products for different platforms. Lazarus and Free Pascal are developed by the Lazarus and FreePascal Foundation. The main projects of Lazarus and FreePascal Foundation are:

● Bringing Pascal to the Internet

● Making Lazarus the best UI for programming. 

● Bringing Pascal to educational institutions - for students starting at a young age.

: Michael Van Canneyt has more than 30 years of Pascal programming experience, starting with Turbo Pascal 3. While working on his PhD in theoretical physics, he joined the Free Pascal team, where he is responsible for writing the website, documentation and end-user libraries. He also programs professionally in Pascal: anything from administrative systems to mobile apps to big data has landed on his plate. Currently he is employed by Tixeo, a software firm, where he is porting the flagship software from Delphi to FPC. In addition, he is the founder and technical lead of the Lazarus Factory. 

A maximum of 12 researchers will be able to present their research. The best presentations will be invited to participate in a special issue  in ADCAIJ: Advances in Distributed Computing and Artificial Intelligence Journal  The publication will be  free of charges.
