Event:    Haskell in Leipzig 2017
Time:     October 26–28, 2017
Place:    HTWK Leipzig, Germany
Homepage: https://hal2017.softbase.org/


Haskell is a modern functional programming language that allows rapid
development of robust and correct software. It is renowned for its
expressive type system, its unique approaches to concurrency and
parallelism, and its excellent refactoring capabilities. Haskell is both
the playing field of cutting-edge programming language research and a
reliable base for commercial software development.

The workshop series Haskell in Leipzig (HaL), now in its 12th year,
brings together Haskell developers, Haskell researchers, Haskell
enthusiasts, and Haskell beginners to listen to talks, take part in
tutorials, join in interesting conversations, and hack together. To
support the latter, HaL will include a one-day hackathon this year. The
workshop will have a focus on functional reactive programming (FRP) this
time, while continuing to be open to all aspects of Haskell. As in the
previous year, the workshop will be in English.


Everything related to Haskell is on topic, whether it is about current
research, practical applications, interesting ideas off the beaten
track, education, or art, and topics may extend to functional
programming in general and its connections to other programming

Contributions can take the form of

  * talks (about 30 minutes),
  * tutorials (about 90 minutes),
  * demonstrations, artistic performances, or other extraordinary

Please submit an abstract that describes the content and form of your
presentation, the intended audience, and required previous knowledge. We
recommend a length of 2 pages, so that the program committee and the
audience get a good idea of your contribution, but this is not a hard

Please submit your abstract as a PDF document at


until Friday, August 4, 2017. You will be notified by Friday, August 25,

Hacking Projects

Projects for the hackathon can be presented during the workshop. A prior
submission is not needed for this.
