    SemanticWeb: "A core part of the college’s Software Engineering Capstone Project course, the work has focused on creating a new version of the Common Lisp language that runs on the Java Virtual Machine and is intertwined with the Java language in such a way that users of Lisp can directly access Java libraries and vice versa."
