# Call for Participation


     Utrecht, the Netherlands, 04 July – 08 July 2022


**Please register before June 17th **


The Advanced Functional Programming summer school has been running for
more than ten years. We aim to educate aspiring Haskell programmers
beyond the basic material covered by many textbooks.

After running remotely for the past two years, we're thrilled to
announce that this year's edition will take place on site in
Utrecht. We are monitoring the pandemic closely - and will make
contingency plans if we cannot meet in person; at the moment, we do
not have plans for remote participation.

The lectures will cover several more advanced topics regarding the
theory and practice of Haskell programming, including topics such as:

   * lambda calculus;
   * monads and monad transformers;
   * lazy evaluation;
   * generalized algebraic data types;
   * type families and type-level programming;
   * concurrency and parallelism.

The summer school consists of a mix of lectures, labs, and a busy
social program.


Utrecht staff:
* Gabriele Keller
* Trevor McDonell
* Wouter Swierstra


We expect students to have a basic familiarity with Haskell
already. You should be able to write recursive functions over
algebraic data types, such as lists and trees. There is a great deal
of material readily available that covers this material. If you've
already started learning Haskell and are looking to take your
functional programming skills to the next level, this is the course
for you.


**Registration deadline: June 17th, 2022**
School: 04 July – 08 July 2022

We will charge a registration fee of 750 euros (or 250 euros for

scholarships or discounts available for students that would not be
able to attend otherwise, especially for women and under-represented
