*Call for Praatjes: Dutch HUG Day*

To celebrate our first anniversary, the Dutch Haskell Users Group (HUG)
invites Haskell and functional programming enthusiasts in the Netherlands
and surrounding area to a short symposium. The Dutch HUG is an informal
group with monthly meetings including talks on novel applications of Haskell
and socializing in the neighborhood pub. The group was founded on Sunday,
April 19, 2009 at the Haskell Hackathon hosted in Utrecht. After a
successful year, we will continue the trend with the Dutch HUG Day.

The Dutch HUG Day will be held in Utrecht on the afternoon of Saturday,
April 24, 2010. The actual location is not confirmed; however, we will send
out a notice as soon as it is known.


We seek people to give talks or "praatjes" in Dutch. The topic can cover
anything in the functional programming or, more specifically, Haskell world.
It may be your latest pet project, current research, or simply a
demonstration of something cool that you found. The audience will be coming
with a broad range of backgrounds, so praatjes should be oriented towards
people having a general knowledge of Haskell programming. You can choose
from one of the formats and topics below, or feel free to suggest something

If you are interested in presenting, please send your proposal to Sean
Leather by Saturday, April 3. More details are below.


   - Talks (20 min)
   - Tutorials (25 min)
   - Lightning talks (5 min)
   - Demos (5 min)


   - Development or design of a library or application
   - Comparison of libraries, applications, or languages
   - Lead a focused discussion (e.g. web programming options in Haskell)
   - Functional pearl (a "fun" talk)
   - Current research topic
   - Functional programming in industry
   - Experience report
   - Your favorite piece of software (and why)
   - Anything else (related to Haskell or functional programming) that you
   find interesting
