                            ICFP 2020
 25th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming

                       August 23 - 28, 2020

The 25th ACM SIGPLAN International Conference on Functional Programming
will be held virtually on August 23-28, 2020.
ICFP provides a forum for researchers and developers to hear about the 
latest work on the design, implementations, principles, and uses of 
functional programming.

Proposals are invited for tutorials, lasting approximately 3 hours each,
to be presented during ICFP and its co-located workshops and other
events. These tutorials are the successor to the CUFP tutorials from
previous years, but we also welcome tutorials whose primary audience is
researchers rather than practitioners. Tutorials may focus either on a
concrete technology or on a theoretical or mathematical tool. Ideally,
tutorials will have a concrete result, such as "Learn to do X with Y"
rather than "Learn language Y". 

To increase social interaction on the first ICFP virtual conference,
this year we invite proposals for social events on topics of broader
interest to the PL community. Such events can be panels and
discussions (in the lines of the successful #ShutDownPL event),
focused discussions (e.g., problem identifications, retrospective
analysis, technical demos), social activities (e.g., treasure hunt,
bingo, problem solving, artistic challenges). The typical duration of
such events ranges from 30 minutes to one hour, but can be of any

Tutorials may occur before or after ICFP, co-located with the
associated workshops, on August 23 or August 27-28. Social events may
be scheduled throughout the week.
