CALL FOR PHD ABSTRACTS

Journal of Functional Programming

http://tinyurl.com/jfp-phd-abstracts

============================================================

PREAMBLE:

Many students complete PhDs in functional programming each
year, but there is currently no common location in which
to promote and advertise the resulting work.  The Journal
of Functional Programming would like to change that!

As a service to the community, JFP is launching a new
feature, in the form of a yearly publication of abstracts
from PhD dissertations that were completed during the
previous year.  To start this new feature off, we would like
to reach back three years for the first round of abstracts.
The abstracts will be freely available on the JFP website,
i.e. not behind any paywall, and will not require any

Please submit dissertation abstracts according to the
instructions below.  A dissertation is eligible if parts
of it have or could appear in JFP, that is, if it is in
the general area of functional programming.  JFP will not
have these abstracts reviewed.  We welcome submissions
from both the PhD student and PhD advisor/supervisor
although we encourage them to coordinate.

============================================================

SUBMISSION:

Please submit the following information to Graham Hutton
<graham.hutton at nottingham.ac.uk> by 30th April 2014.

o Student: (full name)

o Dissertation title: (including any subtitle)

o Dissertation abstract: (plain text, maximum 1000 words;
you may use \emph{...} for emphasis, but we prefer no
other markup or formatting in the abstract, but do get
in touch if this causes significant problems)

o Dissertation URL: (please provide a permanently accessible
link to the dissertation if you have one, such as to an
institutional repository or other public archive; links
to personal web pages should be considered a last resort)

o Awarding institution: (full name and location)

o Date of PhD award: (depending on the institution, this
may be the date of the viva, date when corrections were
approved, date of graduation ceremony, or otherwise)

Please do not submit a copy of the dissertation itself, as
this is not required.  JFP reserves the right to decline
to publish abstracts that are not deemed appropriate.
