           ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Implementors' Workshop

            Milan, Italy, September 2, 2024

                 Co-located with ICFP 2024

## Important dates

* Deadline: July 19, 2024 (AoE)
* Notification: August 2, 2024
* Workshop: September 2, 2024

The 16th Haskell Implementors’ Workshop is to be held alongside ICFP
2024 this year in Milan. It is a forum for people involved in the
design and development of Haskell implementations, tools, libraries,
and supporting infrastructure to share their work and to discuss
future directions and collaborations with others.

Talks and/or demos are proposed by submitting an abstract, and
selected by a small program committee. There will be no published
proceedings. The workshop will be informal and interactive, with open
spaces in the timetable and room for ad-hoc discussion, demos, and
lightning talks.

## Scope and Target Audience

It is important to distinguish the Haskell Implementors’ Workshop from
the Haskell Symposium which is also co-located with ICFP 2024. The
Haskell Symposium is for the publication of Haskell-related research.
In contrast, the Haskell Implementors’ Workshop will have no
proceedings – although we will aim to make talk videos, slides, and
presented data available with the consent of the speakers.

The Implementors’ Workshop is an ideal place to describe a Haskell
extension, describe works-in-progress, demo a new Haskell-related
tool, or even propose future lines of Haskell development. Members of
the wider Haskell community are encouraged to attend the workshop – we
need your feedback to keep the Haskell ecosystem thriving. Students
working with Haskell are especially encouraged to share their work.

The scope covers any of the following topics. There may be some topics
that people feel we’ve missed, so by all means submit a proposal even
if it doesn’t fit exactly into one of these buckets:

* Compilation techniques
* Language features and extensions
* Type system implementation
* Concurrency and parallelism: language design and implementation
* Performance, optimization and benchmarking
* Virtual machines and run-time systems
* Libraries and tools for development or deployment

## Talks

We invite proposals from potential speakers for talks and
demonstrations. We are aiming for 20-minute talks with 5 minutes for
questions and changeovers. We want to hear from people writing
compilers, tools, or libraries, people with cool ideas for directions
in which we should take the platform, proposals for new features to be
implemented, and half-baked crazy ideas. Please submit a talk title
and abstract of no more than 300 words.

Submissions can be made via HotCRP at https://hiw2024.hotcrp.com until
July 19 (anywhere on earth).

We will also have a lightning talks session. These have been very well
received in recent years, and we aim to increase the time available to
them. Lightning talks should be ~7mins and are scheduled on the day of
the workshop. Suggested topics for lightning talks are to present a
single idea, a work-in-progress project, a problem to intrigue and
perplex Haskell implementors, or simply to ask for feedback and
