This is a final call for speakers at CUFP 2010 -- the Commercial Users of FP
Workshop, in Baltimore.

CUFP is a chance for you to talk about your use of functional programming in a
commercial setting -- and we'd love to see some Haskell speakers, given the recent
spike in recruiting :-)

You can see the fine videos from last year's CUFP on the all new CUFP site:

Time to stand up and be counted!

2010 Call for Presentations


Sponsored by SIGPLAN
Co-located with ICFP 2010
Baltimore, MD USA
Oct 1-2
Submission Deadline 15 June 2010

Functional programming languages have been a hot topic of academic research for
over 35 years, and have seen an ever larger practical impact in settings
ranging from tech startups to financial firms to biomedical research labs. At
the same time, a vigorous community of practically-minding functional
programmers has come into existence.

CUFP is designed to serve this community. The annual CUFP workshop is a place
where people can see how others are using functional programming to solve real
world problems; where practitioners meet and collaborate; where language
designers and users can share ideas about the future of their favorite
language; and where one can learn practical techniques and approaches for
putting functional programming to work.

Giving a CUFP Talk

If you have experience using functional languages in a practical setting, we
invite you to submit a proposal to give a talk at the workshop. We're looking
for two kinds of talks:

Experience reports are typically 25 minutes long, and aim to inform
participants about how functional programming plays out in real-world
applications, focusing especially on lessons learned and insights gained.
Experience reports don't need to be highly technical; reflections on the
commercial, management, or software engineering aspects are, if anything, more
important. You do not need to submit a paper!

Technical talks are expected to be 30-45 minutes long, and should focus on
teaching the audience something about a technical technique or methodology,
from the point of view of someone who has seen it play out in practice. These
talks could cover anything from techniques for building functional concurrent
applications, to managing dynamic reconfigurations, to design recipes for using
types effectively in large-scale applications. While these talks will often be
based on a particular language, they should be accessible to a broad range of
functional programmers.

If you are interested in offering a talk, or nominating someone to do so, send
an e-mail to francesco(at)erlang-consulting(dot)com or
yminsky(at)janestreet(dot)com by 15 June 2010 with a short description of what
you'd like to talk about or what you think your nominee should give a talk
about. Such descriptions should be about one page long.

There will be no published proceedings, as the meeting is intended to be more a
discussion forum than a technical interchange.
