Last call for papers


  TFP 2009


  June 2-4, 2009

*** Submission deadline extended until 10th of May! ***

The symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP) is an

international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of

functional programming languages, focusing on providing a broad view of

current and future trends in Functional Programming. It aspires to be a

lively environment for presenting the latest research results. Acceptance

for the conference is based on full papers or extended abstracts, and a

formal post-symposium refereeing process selects the best articles

presented at the symposium for publication in a high-profile volume.

TFP 2009 is hosted by the Selye Janos University, Komarno, Slovakia, and

it is co-located with the 3rd Central-European Functional Programming

School (CEFP 2009), which is held immediately before TFP 2009 (May 25-30).


     * Paper Submission: May 10 (extended)

     * Notification of Acceptance: May 12

     * Camera Ready Symposium Proceedings Paper: May 14

     * TFP Symposium: June 2-4, 2009

     * Post Symposium Paper Submission: June 30

     * Notification of Acceptance: September 7

     * Camera Ready Revised Paper: September 21


As part of the Symposium's focus on trends we therefore identify

the following five article categories. High-quality articles are

solicited in any of these categories:

     * Research: leading-edge, previously unpublished research.

     * Position: on what new trends should or should not be.

     * Project: descriptions of recently started new projects.

     * Evaluation: what lessons can be drawn from a finished project.

     * Overview: summarizing work with respect to a trendy subject.

Articles must be original and not submitted for simultaneous publication

to any other forum. They may consider any aspect of functional

programming: theoretical, implementation-oriented, or more experience-

oriented. Applications of functional programming techniques to other

languages are also within the scope of the symposium. Contributions on

the following subject areas are particularly welcomed:

     * Dependently Typed Functional Programming

     * Validation and Verification of Functional Programs

     * Debugging for Functional Languages

     * Functional Programming and Security

     * Functional Programming and Mobility

     * Functional Programming to Animate/Prototype/Implement Systems from

       Formal or Semi-Formal Specifications

     * Functional Languages for Telecommunications Applications

     * Functional Languages for Embedded Systems

     * Functional Programming Applied to Global Computing

     * Functional GRIDs

     * Functional Programming Ideas in Imperative or Object-Oriented

       Settings (and the converse)

     * Interoperability with Imperative Programming Languages

     * Novel Memory Management Techniques

     * Parallel/Concurrent Functional Languages

     * Program Transformation Techniques

     * Empirical Performance Studies

     * Abstract/Virtual Machines and Compilers for Functional Languages

     * New Implementation Strategies

     * Any new emerging trend in the functional programming area

If you are in doubt on whether your article is within the scope of TFP,

please contact the TFP 2009 program chairs, Zoltan Horvath and Viktoria

Zsok at tfp2009 at <mailto:tfp2009 at>


Acceptance of articles for presentation at the symposium is based on the

screening process of full papers (15 pages) and extended abstracts

(at least 3 pages). TFP encourages PhD students to submit papers.

PhD students may request the program committee to provide extensive

feedback on their full papers at the time of submission. Full papers

describing work accepted for presentation must be completed before the

symposium for publication in the draft proceedings. Further details can

be found at the TFP 2009 website.


In addition to the draft symposium proceedings, we continue the TFP

tradition of publishing a high-quality subset of contributions in the

Intellect series on Trends in Functional Programming.
