The Symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP) is an 
forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of functional 
taking a broad view of current and future trends in the area. It aspires 
be a lively environment for presenting the latest research results, and 

This year, TFP will take place in-person at Seton Hall University, in 
Orange, NJ in the United States. It is co-located with the Trends in 
Programming in Education (TFPIE) workshop, which will take on the day 
the main symposium.

Please be aware that TFP has several submission deadlines. The first, 
November 4,
is for authors that wish to have their full paper reviewed prior to the 
Papers that are accepted in this way must also be presented at the 
symposium. The
second, November 30, is for authors that wish to present their work or 
progress at the symposium first without submitting to the full review 
process for
publication. These authors can then take into account feedback received 
at the
symposium and submit a full article for review by the third deadline, 
February 23.

## Scope

The symposium recognizes that new trends may arise through various 
routes. As part
of the Symposium's focus on trends we therefore identify the following 
five article
categories. High-quality articles are solicited in any of these 

* Research Articles:
   Leading-edge, previously unpublished research work
* Position Articles:
   On what new trends should or should not be
* Project Articles:
   Descriptions of recently started new projects
* Evaluation Articles:
   What lessons can be drawn from a finished project
* Overview Articles:
   Summarizing work with respect to a trendy subject

Articles must be original and not simultaneously submitted for 
publication to any
other forum. They may consider any aspect of functional programming: 
implementation-oriented, or experience-oriented. Applications of 
programming techniques to other languages are also within the scope of 
the symposium.

Topics suitable for the symposium include, but are not limited to:

* Functional programming and multicore/manycore computing
* Functional programming in the cloud
* High performance functional computing
* Extra-functional (behavioural) properties of functional programs
* Dependently typed functional programming
* Validation and verification of functional programs
* Debugging and profiling for functional languages
* Functional programming in different application areas:
   security, mobility, telecommunications applications, embedded
   systems, global computing, grids, etc.
* Interoperability with imperative programming languages
* Novel memory management techniques
* Program analysis and transformation techniques
* Empirical performance studies
* Abstract/virtual machines and compilers for functional languages
* (Embedded) domain specific languages
* New implementation strategies
* Any new emerging trend in the functional programming area

If you are in doubt on whether your article is within the scope of TFP, 
please contact
the TFP 2024 program chair, Jason Hemann.

## Best Paper Awards

TFP awards two prizes for the best papers each year.

First, to reward excellent contributions, TFP awards a prize for the 
best overall paper
accepted for the post-conference formal proceedings.

Second, each year TFP also awards a prize for the best student paper. 
TFP traditionally
pays special attention to research students, acknowledging that students 
are almost by
definition part of new subject trends. A student paper is one for which 
the authors
state that the paper is mainly the work of students, the students are 
the paper's first
authors, and a student would present the paper.

In both cases, it is the PC of TFP that awards the prize. In case the 
best paper happens
to be a student paper, then that paper will receive both prizes.

## Instructions to Authors

Authors must submit papers to:


Authors of papers have the choice of having their contributions formally 
reviewed either
before or after the Symposium. Further, pre-symposium submissions may 
either be full
(earlier deadline) or draft papers (later deadline).

## Pre-symposium formal review

Papers to be formally reviewed before the symposium should be submitted 
before the early
deadline and will receive their reviews and notification of acceptance 
for both presentation
and publication before the symposium. A paper that has been rejected for 
publication but
accepted for presentation may be resubmitted for the post-symposium 
formal review.

## Post-symposium formal review

Draft papers will receive minimal reviews and notification of acceptance 
for presentation at
the symposium. Authors of draft papers will be invited to submit revised 
papers based on the
feedback receive at the symposium. A post-symposium refereeing process 
will then select a
subset of these articles for formal publication.

## Paper categories

Draft papers and papers submitted for formal review are submitted as 
extended abstracts (4 to
10 pages in length) or full papers (20 pages). The submission must 
clearly indicate which
category it belongs to: research, position, project, evaluation, or 
overview paper. It should
also indicate which authors are research students, and whether the main 
author(s) are students.
A draft paper for which all authors are students will receive additional 
feedback by one of the
PC members shortly after the symposium has taken place.

## Format

Papers must be written in English, and written using the LNCS style. For 
more information about
formatting please consult the Springer LNCS Guidelines web site:
