> Dear Haskell Enthusiast:
> We are pleased to announce the Call for Proposals for LambdaConf 2018
> LambdaConf is the largest interdisciplinary functional programming
> conference in the Mountain West, and one of the largest and most well-known
> functional programming conferences in the world.
> The conference takes place June 3rd - 5th, in Boulder, Colorado, at the
> University of Colorado Boulder, and is preceded by commercial training
> opportunities and followed by a day of third-party mini-conferences on
> selected topics.
> If you are an educator, a researcher, a speaker, a speaker coach, or
> someone aspiring to one of the preceding, then we warmly welcome you to
> submit a proposal for LambdaConf 2018
> <https://lambdaconf2018.dryfta.com/en/abstract-submission>. No prior
> experience is necessary for most proposals, and we welcome beginner-level
> The Call for Proposals closes at the beginning of February 2018. We
> recommend submitting as early as you can to ensure sufficient time for
> LambdaConf attracts everyone from the FP-curious to researchers advancing
> state-of-the-art; hobbyists, professionals, academics and students.
> Material at all levels, including beginner content and very advanced
> content, will find an audience at LambdaConf.
> Historically, LambdaConf has enjoyed a large selection of sessions on
> statically-typed functional programming, and a smaller selection of
> sessions on dynamically-typed functional programming. Some sessions are not
> tied to specific programming languages, but rather cover topics in abstract
> algebra, category theory, type theory, programming language theory,
> functional architecture, and so on, either generally or in a way that
> applies across many programming languages.
> LambdaConf looks for sessions in the following areas:
> - Languages. Proposals that overview or dive into specific features of
> functional, math, or logic programming languages (both new and existing),
> with the goal of exposing developers to new ideas or helping them master
> features of languages they already know.
> - Libraries. Proposals that discuss libraries that leverage functional
> or logic programming to help programmers solve real-world problems.
> - Concepts. Proposals that discuss functional programming idioms,
> patterns, or abstractions; or concepts from mathematics, logic, and
> computer science, all directed at helping developers write software that's
> easier to test, easier to reason about, and easier to change safely.
> - Applications. Proposals that discuss how functional programming can
> help with specific aspects of modern software development, including
> scalability, distributed systems, concurrency, data processing, security,
> performance, correctness, user-interfaces, machine learning, and big data.
> - Use Cases. Proposals that discuss how functional programming enabled
> a project or team to thrive, or deliver more business value than possible
> with other approaches.
> - Cherry Picking. Proposals that show how techniques and approaches
> from functional programming can be adapted and incorporated into mainstream
> development languages and practices, to the benefit of developers using
> - Cautionary Tales. Proposals that call attention to difficulties of
> functional programming (both as a cautionary tale but also to raise
> awareness), especially such proposals that suggest alternatives or a path
> - Efficacy. Proposals that present data, measurements, or analysis
> that suggests different techniques, paradigms, languages, libraries,
> concepts, or approaches have different efficacies for given specified
> metrics, which provide actionable takeaways to practicing functional and
> logic programmers.
> - Off-Topic. Proposals that have appeal to a mainstream developer
> audience (the number of off-topic proposals we accept is small, but we do
> accept some, especially for keynotes).
> LambdaConf accepts proposals for the following types of sessions:
> - Leap Workshops (6h). Leap Workshops are approximately 6 hours in
> length. They are in-depth, hands-on workshops designed to teach mainstream
> functional programming topics in enough detail, attendees can immediately
> apply what they learn in their jobs. We require that speakers follow our
> recommended format for Leap Workshops, although we allow exceptions for
> experienced teachers.
> - Hop Workshops (2h). Hop Workshops are 2 hours in length. Like Leap
> Workshops, these workshops are in-depth and hands-on, but they cover
> reduced content and may be specialized to topics that may not have
> mainstream appeal. We require that speakers follow our recommended format
> for Hop Workshops, although we allow exceptions for experienced teachers.
> - De Novo Sessions (50m). De Novo Sessions are 50 minutes in length.
> These sessions are designed to present original work from industry and
> academia. While the requirements for proposals are more rigorous, there is
> less competition for De Novo slots.
> - Educational Sessions (50m). Educational Sessions are 50 minutes in
> length. These sessions are designed to clearly and concisely teach one
> useful concept, skill, aspect, library, or language to attendees.
> - Inspire Talks (5m). Inspire talks are 5 minutes in length and focus
> on clear communication of a single takeaway. These sessions are intended to
> inspire attendees to learn more about particular subjects or to try new
> approaches, and must follow Ignite-style, which consists of 20 slides, each
> auto-advancing after 15 seconds.
> - Keynotes (40m). Keynotes are 40 minutes in length, and are presented
> before all attendees (there are no other sessions concurrent with
> keynotes). Keynotes are designed to offer thought-provoking, opinionated,
> and insightful commentary on topics of interest to the community.
> Level of reimbursement varies based on the type of proposal you are
> selected for:
> - Leap Workshops (6 hours). Speakers for Leap Workshops receive a free
> ticket, a speaker gift, a speaker dinner, up to 4 days accommodations, full
> travel reimbursement, and a small honorarium.
> - Hop Workshops (2 hours) / Educational (50m) / De Novo (50m) /
> Keynote (50m). Speakers for Hop Workshops, Educational, De Novo, and
> Keynote receive a free ticket, a speaker gift, a speaker dinner, and up to
> 4 days accommodations. Speakers may also request travel assistance, which
> is dealt out based on availability and need, and which may cover up to $250
> for domestic travel, and $500 for international travel.
> - Inspire (5m). As Inspire talks are only 5 minutes in length, Inspire
> speakers receive a speaker gift and a speaker dinner, but must purchase a
> ticket and pay for travel and accommodations on their own.
> If you are accepted for a specific type of proposal (e.g. Educational),
> we cannot guarantee that you will get a slot of this type. Based on
> scheduling requirements, feedback from the committee, or feedback from your
> speaker coach, we may require you to change the format of your session.
> You may submit as many proposals as you like, though we recommend spending
> more time refining fewer proposals, since the quality of your proposals has
> a significant effect on their chances of acceptance by the blind committee.
> If you wish to maximize your chances of having a proposal accepted, we also
> recommend spreading 2-3 proposals across multiple categories, because some
> categories are fiercely competitive, while others are less competitive.
