CALL FOR PAPERS
22nd Symposium on Implementation and Applications of Functional Languages (IFL 2010)September 1-3, 2010Utrecht UniversityAlphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlandshttp://www.cs.uu.nl/wiki/bin/view/IFL2010/WebHome
After a first successful visit to the USA, the Symposium on Implementation and Applications of FunctionalLanguages returns to Europe for its 22nd edition. The hosting institution is Utrecht University in the Netherlands, although the conference itself will take place in the ornithological theme park Avifauna in Alphen aan den Rijn, situated conveniently close to Schiphol (Amsterdam Airport). The symposium dates are September 1-3, 2010.
The goal of the IFL symposia is to bring together researchers actively engaged in the implementation and application of functional and function-based programming languages. IFL 2010 will be a venue for researchers to present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in progress, and publication-ripe results related to the implementation and application of functional languages and function-based programming.
Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2010 will use a post-symposium review process to produce formal proceedings which will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. All participants in IFL 2010 are invited to submit either a draft paper or an extended abstract describing work to be presented at the symposium. At no time may work submitted to IFL be simultaneously submitted to other venues. Herewe follow the ACM Sigplan republication policy as defined on http://www.sigplan.org/republicationpolicy.htm.The submissions will be screened by the program committee chair to make sure they are within the scope of IFL, and will appear in the draft proceedings distributed at the symposium. Submissions appearing in the draft proceedings are not peer-reviewed publications. After the symposium, authors will be given the opportunity to incorporate the feedback from discussions at the symposium and will be invited to submit a revised full article for the formal review process. These revised submissions will be reviewed by the program committee using prevailing academic standards to select the best articles, which will appear in the formal proceedings.
Johan Nordlander of Lulea University, the designer and developer of the Timber language, is the invited speaker at IFL 2010. Timber is a functional programming language that draws some of its concepts from object-oriented programming, and has built-in facilities for concurrent execution. The language is specifically targeted at implementing real-time embedded systems.
IFL welcomes submissions describing practical and theoretical work as well as submissions describing applications and tools. If you are not sure that your work is appropriate for IFL 2010, please contact the PC chair at firstname.lastname@example.org. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
language concepts type checking contracts compilation techniques staged compilation runtime function specialization runtime code generation partial evaluation (abstract) interpretation generic programming techniques automatic program generation array processing concurrent/parallel programming concurrent/parallel program execution functional programming and embedded systems functional programming and web applications functional programming and security novel memory management techniques runtime profiling and performance measurements debugging and tracing virtual/abstract machine architectures validation and verification of functional programs tools and programming techniques industrial applications of functional programming
Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers or extended abstracts to be published in the draft proceedingsand to present them at the symposium. All contributions must be written in English, conform to the Springer-Verlag LNCS series format and not exceed 16 pages. The draft proceedings will appear as a technical report of the Department of Computer Science of Utrecht University.
PETER LANDIN PRIZE
The Peter Landin Prize is awarded to the best paper presented at the symposium every year. The honored article is selected by the program committee based on the submissions received for the formal review process. The prize carries a cash award equivalent to 150 Euros.
