TFP 2008 2008 : Trends in Functional Programming 2008
Call For Papers
The symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP) is an international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of functional programming languages, focusing on providing a broad view of current and future trends in Functional Programming. It aspires to be a lively environment for presenting the latest research results through acceptance by extended abstracts and full papers. A formal post-symposium refereeing process selects the best articles presented at the symposium for publication in a high-profile volume.
TFP 2008 is hosted by the Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands, and will be held in the rural setting of Center Parcs 'Het Heijderbos', Heijen (in the vicinity of Nijmegen), The Netherlands. TFP 2008 is co-located with the 6th Int'l. Summer School on Advanced Functional Programming (AFP'08), which is held immediately before TFP'08.
SCOPE OF THE SYMPOSIUM
The symposium recognizes that new trends may arise through various routes. As part of the Symposium's focus on trends we therefore identify the following five article categories. High-quality articles are solicited in any of these categories:
- Research: leading-edge, previously unpublished research.
- Position: on what new trends should or should not be.
- Project: descriptions of recently started new projects.
- Evaluation: what lessons can be drawn from a finished project.
- Overview: summarizing work with respect to a trendy subject.
Articles must be original and not submitted for simultaneous publication to
any other forum. They may consider any aspect of functional programming:
theoretical, implementation-oriented, or more experience-oriented.
Applications of functional programming techniques to other languages are
also within the scope of the symposium.
Contributions on the following subject areas are particularly welcomed:
* Dependently Typed Functional Programming
* Validation and Verification of Functional Programs
* Debugging for Functional Languages
* Functional Programming and Security
* Functional Programming and Mobility
* Functional Programming to Animate/Prototype/Implement Systems from Formal or Semi-Formal Specifications
* Functional Languages for Telecommunications Applications
* Functional Languages for Embedded Systems
* Functional Programming Applied to Global Computing
* Functional GRIDs
* Functional Programming Ideas in Imperative or Object-Oriented Settings (and the converse)
* Interoperability with Imperative Programming Languages
* Novel Memory Management Techniques
* Parallel/Concurrent Functional Languages
* Program Transformation Techniques
* Empirical Performance Studies
* Abstract/Virtual Machines and Compilers for Functional Languages
* New Implementation Strategies
* Any new emerging trend in the functional programming area
If you are in doubt on whether your article is within the scope of TFP, please contact the TFP 2008 program chairs, Peter Achten and Pieter Koopman, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
SUBMISSION AND DRAFT PROCEEDINGS
Acceptance of articles for presentation at the symposium is based on the review of full papers (15 pages) and extended abstracts (3 pages) by the program committee. TFP encourages PhD students to submit papers. PhD students may request the program committee to provide extensive feedback on their full papers at the time of submission. Full papers describing work accepted for presentation must be completed before the symposium for publication in the draft proceedings and on-line. Further details can be found at the TFP 2008 website http://www.st.cs.ru.nl/AFP_TFP_2008/.
POST-SYMPOSIUM REFEREEING AND PUBLICATION
In addition to the draft symposium proceedings, we continue the TFP tradition of publishing a high-quality subset of contributions in the Intellect series on Trends in Functional Programming.
