Call for workshop and co-located event proposals


The 19th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP 2014) will be held in Gothenburg, Sweden on September 1 – 3. 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 2014 and sponsored by SIGPLAN. These events should be less formal 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 August 31 (the day before ICFP) and September 4-6 (the three days after ICFP).
