After a first successful visit to the USA, the Symposium on
Implementation and Application of Functional Languages returns to Europe
for its 22nd edition. The hosting institution is Utrecht University in
the Netherlands, although the conference itself will take place in the
ornithological theme park Avifauna in Alphen aan den Rijn, situated
conveniently close to Schiphol (Amsterdam Airport). The symposium dates
are September 1-3, 2010. 

The goal of the IFL symposia is to bring together researchers actively
engaged in the implementation and application of functional and
function-based programming languages. IFL 2010 will be a venue for
researchers to present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in
progress, and publication-ripe results related to the implementation and
application of functional languages and function-based programming. 

Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2010 will use a post-symposium review
process to produce formal proceedings which will be published by
Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science series. All
participants in IFL 2010 are invited to submit either a draft paper or
an extended abstract describing work to be presented at the symposium.
At no time may work submitted to IFL be simultaneously submitted to
other venues. Here we follow the ACM Sigplan republication policy as
defined on http://www.sigplan.org/republicationpolicy.htm.  The
submissions will be screened by the program committee chair to make sure
they are within the scope of IFL, and will appear in the draft
proceedings distributed at the symposium. Submissions appearing in the
draft proceedings are not peer-reviewed publications. After the
symposium, authors will be given the opportunity to incorporate the
feedback from discussions at the symposium and will be invited to submit
a revised full article for the formal review process. These revised
submissions will be reviewed by the program committee using prevailing
academic standards to select the best articles, which will appear in the
formal proceedings.


Johan Nordlander of Lulea University, the designer and developer of the
Timber language, is the invited speaker at IFL 2010. Timber is a
functional programming language that draws some of its concepts from
object-oriented programming, and has built-in facilities for concurrent
execution. The language is specifically targeted at implementing
real-time embedded systems.


IFL welcomes submissions describing practical and theoretical work as
well as submissions describing applications and tools. If you are not
sure that your work is appropriate for IFL 2010, please contact the PC
chair at jur at cs.uu.nl. Topics of interest include, but are not limited

    language concepts 
    type checking 
    compilation techniques 
    staged compilation 
    runtime function specialization 
    runtime code generation 
    partial evaluation 
    (abstract) interpretation 
    generic programming techniques 
    automatic program generation 
    array processing 
    concurrent/parallel programming 
    concurrent/parallel program execution 
    functional programming and embedded systems 
    functional programming and web applications 
    functional programming and security 
    novel memory management techniques 
    runtime profiling and performance measurements 
    debugging and tracing 
    virtual/abstract machine architectures 
    validation and verification of functional programs 
    tools and programming techniques 
    industrial applications of functional programming


Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers or extended
abstracts to be published in the draft proceedings and to present them
at the symposium. All contributions must be written in English, conform
to the Springer-Verlag LNCS series format and not exceed 16 pages. The
draft proceedings will appear as a technical report of the Department of
Computer Science of Utrecht University.


IFL 2010 is sponsored by Microsoft Research. As a result we can offer
decreased participation fees for Master students and PhD students who
plan to attend or present at IFL 2010. 


The Peter Landin Prize is awarded to the best paper presented at the
symposium every year.  The honored article is selected by the program
committee based on the submissions received for the formal review
process. The prize carries a cash award equivalent to 150 Euros.
