CALL FOR PHD ABSTRACTS

Journal of Functional Programming

Deadline: 30th April 2015

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 recently launched a new
feature, in the form of a regular publication of abstracts
from PhD dissertations that were completed during the previous
year.  The abstracts are made freely available on the JFP
website, i.e. not behind any paywall, and do not require any
transfer for copyright, merely a license from the author.

Please submit dissertation abstracts according to the
instructions below.  A dissertation is eligible if parts
of it have or could have appeared 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 2015.

o Dissertation title: (including any subtitle)

o Student: (full name)

o Awarding institution: (full name and country)

o Date of PhD award: (month and year; depending on the
institution, this may be the date of the viva, corrections
being approved, graduation ceremony, or otherwise)

o Advisor/supervisor: (full names)

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 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)

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.
