                        Call for Lightning Talks
               ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Implementors' Workshop

                         Virtual, 22 Aug, 2021

                      Co-located with ICFP 2021

Important dates

Deadline:       Thursday, 19 Aug, 2021
                (or when slots are full, whichever is sooner)
Workshop:       Sunday, 22 Aug, 2021

The 13th Haskell Implementors' Workshop is to be held alongside ICFP
2021 this year virtually. It is a forum for people involved in the
design and development of Haskell implementations, tools, libraries,
and supporting infrastructure, to share their work and discuss future
directions and collaborations with others.

We will have a number of slots for lightning talks. Lightning talks
will be ~7 minutes and are scheduled on the day of the workshop.
Suggested topics for lightning talks are to present a single idea, a
work-in-progress project, a problem to intrigue and perplex Haskell
implementors, or simply to ask for feedback and collaborators.

Lightning talks are proposed by submitting a title and an abstract.
Submissions will not be part of the peer-review process. Notification
of acceptance will be continuous until slots are full.

Submissions should be made via Google form:

Accepted lightning talks will be posted on the workshop’s website.

Scope and target audience

The Implementors' Workshop is an ideal place to describe a Haskell
extension, describe works-in-progress, demo a new Haskell-related tool,
or even propose future lines of Haskell development. Members of the
wider Haskell community encouraged to attend the workshop -- we need
your feedback to keep the Haskell ecosystem thriving. Students working
with Haskell are specially encouraged to share their work.

The scope covers any of the following topics. There may be some topics
that people feel we've missed, so by all means submit a proposal even if
it doesn't fit exactly into one of these buckets:

  * Compilation techniques
  * Language features and extensions
  * Type system implementation
  * Concurrency and parallelism: language design and implementation
  * Performance, optimisation and benchmarking
  * Virtual machines and run-time systems
  * Libraries and tools for development or deployment


Due to the on-going COVID-19 situation, ICFP (and, consequently, HIW)
will be held remotely this year. However, the organizers are still
working hard to provide for a great workshop experience.

While we are sad that this year will lack the robust hallway track that
is often the highlight of HIW, we believe that this remote workshop
presents a unique opportunity to include more of the Haskell community
in our discussion and explore new modes of communicating with our
colleagues. We hope that you will join us in making this HIW as
vibrant as any other.
