Industrial partnership program

Would you be willing to provide corporate financial support for the 20th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP)?

Corporate support funds are primarily used to subsidize students—the lifeblood of our community—and in turn serve to raise the community profile of the supporting companies.

Your generosity would make it possible for students from all over the world to attend ICFP, which is the premier conference in functional programming. There, they will meet luminaries in the field, as well as people who've succeeded in building a successful career built on functional programming. They will return home further motivated to continue pursuing functional programming in the confidence that exciting careers are available.

This year, we're again offering levels of financial support to enable smaller companies to contribute while allowing larger companies to be as generous as they wish (with additional benefits, in recognition of that generosity).

The proposed support levels, and their associated benefits and pledge amounts and benefits are as follows (costs in US dollars).

Bronze$500Logo on website, poster at industrial reception, listed in proceedings.
Silver$2500As above plus: logo in proceedings, logo on publicity materials (e.g., posters, etc.)
Gold$5000As above plus: named supporter of industrial reception, opportunity to include branded merchandise in participants' swag bag.
Platinum$10000As above plus: logo on swag bag, named supporter of whole event, logo on lanyards, table/booth-like space available (in coffee break areas), other negotiated benefits (subject to ACM restrictions on commercial involvement).

As the premier conference in the field, ICFP is the ideal venue to promote your company's interests in functional programming, and to meet with prospective employees and leading figures in the community.
