This is the third (and last) presentation about my work on Climb at the LRDE. During the first one I tackled genericity on data structures, the second was about genericity on values and this one talks about genericity on algorithms.
Climb - Property-based dispatch in functional languages
Abstract: "Climb is a generic image processing library. A generic algorithm interface often requires several different specialized implementations. Olena, a C++ library, solves this using properties.
We present a way to dispatch a function call to the best specialized implementation using properties in a dynamic programming language: Common Lisp. Then, we introduce examples of algorithms and properties used in image processing."
