# Call for Presentations

Compose Melbourne - http://www.composeconference.org/ - is pleased to
announce its call for presentations.

developing the community and bringing typed functional programming to a
wider audience. It is a 2-day event being held in Melbourne, Australia on
the 29th and 30th of August 2016. The first day features a single track of
presentations followed by a second day of workshops and an unconference. It
is the new sister-conference of the NY based Compose Conference.

# Submission Guidelines

Talk slots will be 30 minutes: 25 minute talk and 5 minutes for questions.

Provide sufficient detail in your submission to enable the reviewers to
understand your proposal and clearly identify what an attendee will gain
from attending your session. You should include the following information
in the submission system:

- Authors - The details of each of the presenters
- Title - Title of the presentation (please keep it brief and specific)
- Abstract - A 300-500 word description of your presentation, ideally
  - Description of the content
  - Goal
- Keywords - List any keywords that will help the program committee and
attendees categorise your presentation. Also indicate the functional
programming languages that you will be targeting.

Nothing upsets an audience more than a speaker that stands on stage
blatantly promoting his or her company, product or achievements.

Please keep the content of your talk on-topic and do not use this speaking
opportunity as a sales pitch.

# Feel

We want Compose Melbourne to be all about the community. We're aiming to
help foster the growth of Functional Programming in Melbourne and unite all
interested parties to spark a unified presence and a feeling of camaraderie
amongst FP and Theory proponents in this wonderful city!

# Audience

Functional-Programming and Programming-Language-Theory professionals and
enthusiasts. Newcomers, experts, anyone from other disciplines of fields
who is interested in what FP is or how it could help them with their work,
or simply make life more enjoyable!

# Diversity

Just like Compose-Conference, we would also like to put an emphasis on
soliciting a diverse set of speakers - anything you can do to distribute
information about this CFP and encourage submissions from under-represented
groups would be greatly appreciated. We welcome *all* (new and established)
contributions and encourage you to apply!

# Day One

All topics for proposals for presentations are invited, but not limited to
explore the following topics:

## New Languages

The development of new and emerging Functional Languages, and the toolsets
around them.

## Libraries and Tools

Exploring the use and development of new and underrepresented tools and

## Production Systems

2016 has seen many previously undeployed languages and systems break
through into production. We're looking for war-stories, success-stories and

## Theory

Theory is the cutting edge of new functional programming. Show the world
what is rising over the horizon.

## Art and Music

Exciting and innovative usage of functional programming language in the

# Day Two

The second day will be dedicated to workshops and unconferences.

## Workshops

We will be running a beginners Haskell workshop.

If you wish to run a workshop on the second day of the conference, then
please let us know. Alternatively, if there is a workshop that would
interest you as an attendee, then please also let us know.

## Unconference

Got something random you want to talk about? The unconference will run the
second day. There will be a whiteboard with spaces where anyone can write
their name down to speak. There's no need to bring anything but yourself
and your ideas and speaking voice.

# Sponsors

We are seeking sponsors to support us in putting on this conference. If you
or your company would like to sponsor us, please get in contact via
composemel-admin at googlegroups.com.
