		  FARM 2013: Call for Participation

  ACM SIGPLAN Workshop on Functional Art, Music, Modeling and Design
                      Boston, Massachusetts, USA
              28th September, 2013 (directly after ICFP)


The functional programming community is largely interested in writing
beautiful programs. This workshop is intended to gather researchers and
practitioners interested in writing beautiful programs that generate
beautiful artifacts. Such artifacts may include visual art, music, 3D
sculptures, animations, GUIs, video games, physical models,
architectural models, choreographies for dance, poetry, and even
physical objects such as VLSI layouts, GPU configurations, or mechanical
engineering designs.

The goal of FARM is to gather together researchers, practitioners, and
educators in this interdisciplinary field, as well as anyone else with
even a casual interest in the area. We wish to share ideas, look for
common ground, and encourage more activity. We also hope to legitimize
work in the field and facilitate potential collaboration among the


Deadline for early registration: 22 August 2013
