[Haskell-cafe] Call for Contributions--First miniKanren and Relational Programming Workshop

William Byrd webyrd at gmail.com
Fri Apr 5 20:02:33 UTC 2019

DEADLINE: 15 May 2019, (Any time in the world)
WEBSITE: https://icfp19.sigplan.org/home/minikanren-2019
LOCATION: Berlin, Germany (co-located with ICFP)
DATE: 22 August 2019

The 2019 First miniKanren and Relational Programming Workshop is
calling for submissions.

Full papers are due 15 May 2019.
Authors will be notified by 15 June 2019.
Camera-ready versions are due 30 June 2019.
All deadlines are (23:59 UTC-12), "Anywhere on Earth".

The miniKanren and Relational Programming Workshop is a new workshop
for the miniKanren family of relational (pure constraint logic
programming) languages: miniKanren, microKanren, core.logic, OCanren,
Guanxi, etc.  The workshop solicits papers and talks on the design,
implementation, and application of miniKanren-like languages.  A major
goal of the workshop is to bring together researchers, implementors,
and users from the miniKanren community, and to share expertise and
techniques for relational programming.  Another goal for the workshop
is to push the state of the art of relational programming---for
example, by developing new techniques for writing interpreters, type
inferencers, theorem provers, abstract interpreters, CAD tools, and
other interesting programs as relations, which are capable of being
"run backwards," performing synthesis, etc.

Submission Information

Submission Page: https://minikanren19.hotcrp.com/

Paper submissions must use the format acmart and its sub-format
acmlarge. They must be in PDF, printable in black and white on US
Letter size. Microsoft Word and LaTeX templates for this format are
available at: http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/

As this is the first iteration of the workshop, we want to encourage
all kinds of submissions. We expect short papers as well as longer
papers. As a rough guideline, with the new ACM format a short paper
would be 2 to 7 pages and a long paper 8 to 25 pages.

Authors are encouraged to publish any code associated to their papers
under an open source license, so that reviewers may try the code and
verify the claims.

Proceedings will be printed as a Technical Report at Harvard University.

Publication of a paper at this workshop is not intended to replace
conference or journal publication, and does not preclude
re-publication of a more complete or finished version of the paper at
some later conference or in a journal.
