Call for Participation
25th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming
and affiliated events
August 23 - August 28, 2020
Early Registration until August 8!
The ICFP Programming Contest starts on July 17!
ICFP provides a forum for researchers and developers to hear
about the latest work on the design, implementations, principles, and
uses of functional programming. The conference covers the entire
spectrum of work, from practice to theory, including its peripheries.
This year, the conference will be a virtual event. All activities will
take place online. The ICFP Programming competition will be July 17th
through 20th, 2020!
The main conference will take place from August 24-26, 2020 during two
time bands. The first band will be 9AM-5:30PM New York, and will
include both technical and social activities. The second band will
repeat (with some variation) the technical program and social
activities 12 hours later, 9AM-5:30PM Beijing, the following day.
We’re excited to announce our two invited speakers for 2020: Evan
Czaplicki, covering the Elm programming language and hard lessons
learned on driving adoption of new programming languages; and Audrey
Tang, Haskeller and Taiwan’s Digital Minister, on how software
developers can contribute to fighting the pandemic.
ICFP has officially accepted 37 exciting papers, and (as a fresh
experiment this year) there will also be presentations of 8 papers
accepted recently to the Journal of Functional Programming. Co-located
symposia and workshops will take place the day before and two days
immediately after the main conference.
Registration is now open. The early registration deadline is August
8th, 2020. Registration is not free, but is significantly lower than
usual. Students who are ACM or SIGPLAN members may register for FREE
before the early deadline.
New this year: Attendees will be able to sign-up for the ICFP
Mentoring Program (either to be a mentor, receive mentorship or both).
