Call for workshop and co-located event proposals


The 18th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2013) will be held in Boston, Massachusetts on September 25 – 27. ICFP provides a forum for researchers and developers to hear about the latest work on the design, implementations, principles, and uses of functional programming.

Proposals are invited for workshops (and other co-located events, such as tutorials) to be affiliated with ICFP 2013 and sponsored by SIGPLAN. These events should be more informal and focused than ICFP itself, include sessions that enable interaction among the attendees, and foster the exchange of new ideas. The preference is for one-day events, but other schedules can also be considered.

The workshops are scheduled to occur on September 22-24 (the three days before ICFP) and September 28 (the day after ICFP).

Organizers will be notified if their event proposal is accepted by January 7, 2013, and if successful, depending on the event, they will be asked to produce a final report after the event has taken place that is suitable for publication in SIGPLAN Notices.
