The 2014 edition of the Applied Functional Programming (AFP)
Summerschool in Utrecht, Netherlands will be held from 7-18 July 2014.
The summerschool teaches Haskell on both beginners and advanced levels
via lectures and lab exercises. More info can be found via the
references above, included here is an excerpt from the summerschool

``Typed functional programming in Haskell allows for the development of
compact programs in minimal time and with maximal guarantees about
robustness and correctness. The course introduces Haskell as well as its
theoretical underpinnings such as typed lambda calculus, and
Damas-Milner type inference. There is ample opportunity to put this all
in practice during lab sessions.

Typed functional programming languages allow for the development of
robust, concise programs in a short amount of time. The key advantages
are higher-order functions as an abstraction mechanism, and an advanced
type system for safety and reusability. This course introduces Haskell,
a state-of-the-art functional programming language, together with some
of its theoretical background, such as typed lambda calculi, referential
transparency, Damas-Milner type inference, type level programming, and
functional design patterns.

We will combine this with applications of functional programming,
concentrating on topics such as language processing, building graphical
user interfaces, networking, databases, and programming for the web. The
goal of the course is not just to teach the programming language and
underlying theory, but also to learn about the Haskell community and to
get hands-on experience by doing lab exercises or a Haskell project of
your own.''
