> Kind of sad that the list of array languages omits Fortran, unless the intent is to talk about how these other languages can be ?upgraded? to be more like Fortran.   Also, after Fortran, the language that probably has the most use of array operations is C++/Boost which is curiously also not mentioned.  Maybe the organizers need a dollar and directions to Jake?s.

It seems to be for theoreticians, not practitioners.  It reminds me of the time around 1970 when every Tom, Dick and Harry was designing a language which was supposedly better than existing languages.  Maybe they were, but the costs of launching and replacing existing languages were totally ignored.
