Call For Papers

We warmly invite submissions to the OCaml Users and Developers Workshop 2018,
to be held during the ICFP conference week on Thursday, September 27th in
St. Louis, Missouri, USA.


Presentations and discussions will focus on the OCaml programming language and
its community. We solicit talks on all aspects related to improving the use
development of the language and its programming environment, including, for
example (but not limited to):
* compiler developments, new backends, runtime and architectures
* practical type system improvements, such as (but not limited to) GADTs,
first-class modules, generic programming, or dependent types
* new library or application releases, and their design rationales
* tools and infrastructure services, and their enhancements
* prominent industrial or experimental uses of OCaml, or deployments
in unusual situations.


The OCaml Users and Developers Workshop will be an informal meeting with no
formal proceedings. The presentation material will be available online from
the workshop homepage. The presentations may be recorded, and made available
at a later time. The main presentation format is a workshop talk,
around 20 minutes in length, plus question time, but we also have a poster
during the workshop - this allows to present more diverse work, and gives
for discussion. The program committee will decide which presentations should
delivered as posters or talks.


To submit a presentation, please register a description of the talk (up to 4
pages long) at providing a clear statement of
will be provided by the presentation: the problems that are addressed, the
solutions or methods that are proposed. LaTeX-produced PDFs are a common and
welcome submission format. For accessibility purposes, we ask PDF submitters
also provide the sources of their submission in a textual format, such as
sources. Reviewers may read either the submitted PDF or the text version.

Important dates

Thursday 31st May (any time zone): Abstract submission deadline
Thursday 28th June: Author notification
Thursday 27th September 2018: OCaml Workshop

ML family workshop and post-proceedings
The ML family workshop, held on the previous day, deals with general issues
the ML-style programming and type systems, focuses on more research-oriented
that is less specific to a language in particular (OCaml). There is an
between the two workshops, and we have occasionally transferred presentations
from one to the other in the past. The authors who feel their submission fits
both workshops are encouraged to mention it at submission time and/or contact
the Program Chairs.

We are planning to publish combined post-proceedings and to invite interested
authors of selected presentations to expand their abstracts for inclusion.
