Haskell Weekly News
Issue 149 - February 08, 2010
   Welcome to issue 149 of HWN, a newsletter covering developments in the
   [1]Haskell community.

   Hello Haskellers, this week's HWN was delayed a bit in the hopes of
   making it a bit more substantial. I hate putting up thin HWNs, but of
   course this must occasionally happen. We have several new CFPs for
   workshops this week, a new benchmarking package, and some fun quotes.
   Till next week, Haskellers, your Haskell Weekly News!


   Call for Papers: Haskell Symposium 2010. Jeremy.Gibbons [2]announced a
   call for papers for the 2010 ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Symposium 2010 in
   Baltimore, Maryland; on 30th September.

   2nd CfP: LOPSTR 2010. Temur Kutsia [3]announced a second call for
   papers for the 20th International Symposium on Logic-Based Program
   Synthesis and Transformation, being held in Hagenberg, Austria, July
   23-25, 2010 (co-located with PPDP 2010).

   PAR 2010: First CFP. Koen Claessen [4]announced a first call for papers
   for PAR'10, the Workshop on Partiality and Recursion in Interactive
   Theorem Provers.

   data-ordlist-0.2. Leon Smith [5]announced a new release of ordlist,
   including a change to the module name and bug fixes.

   progression-0.1. Neil Brown [6]announced Progression, a metalibrary
   which consolidates various existing tools for Haskell optimization
   (notably Criterion).

   HList darcs repo. Oleg He who inhabits all types, but is not _|_, has
   [7]announced a new darcs repo for HList (and OOHaskell) on


   a beginner question: decorate-op-undecorate. Aran Donohue [8]asked
   about how to write a function which can 'inspect' inside a datatype.

   Translation of Haskell type classes. Enrique Martin [9]talked about
   some experiments he's done with type classes, and asked some questions
   regarding optimization related to them.

   Category Theory woes. Mark Spezzano [10]asked about resources for
   learning about category theory.
