                          Call for Participation

                                 AFP 2004
                     5th International Summer School on
                       Advanced Functional Programming
                              Tartu, Estonia
                             14-21 August 2004


AFP is a series of international summer schools which aims to bring computer 
scientist, in particular young researchers and programmers, up to date with 
the latest advances in practical functional programming. The main focus of the 
school is on the interface between results presented at programming 
conferences and the programming in the real world.

This is the fifth event in the series organized by the Department of Computer 
Science of the University of Tartu in conjuction with the Centre for 
Dependable Computing. The previous schools were held in Båstad (Sweden, 1995), 
Olympia (Washington, USA, 1996), Braga (Portugal, 1998) and Oxford (UK, 2002).


The scientific programme of AFP'04 consists of short courses by renowned 
experts of the field and a student session. The school offers eight main 
courses, each composed of lectures and accompanied by lab sessions. The course 
list is the following:

John Hughes (Chalmers University of Technology):

Conor McBride (University of Durham):
    Epigram: dependent types for practical programming

Alberto Pardo (Universidad de la Republica, Montevideo):
    Combining datatypes and effects

Rinus Plasmeijer (University of Nijmegen):
    Generic programming techniques for the construction of graphical user 
    A strongly typed functional operating system based on dynamics

Bernie Pope (University of Melbourne):
    Declarative debugging with Buddha

Doaitse Swierstra (Utrecht University) and Atze Dijkstra (Utrecht University):
    Typing Haskell with an Attribute Grammar

Peter Thiemann (University of Freiburg):
    Server-side Web programming in WASH

Simon Thompson (University of Kent):
    Refactoring Functional Programs

In addition, there will be some introductory and intermediate functional 
programming courses serving as a preparation for the advanced courses.

The purpose of the student session is to give students an opportunity to 
present their work and get feedback. Everyone intending to give a presentation 
should submit an extended abstract (max 10 pp) along with the registration 


Tartu, with 100,000 inhabitants, is the second largest city in Estonia, 
situated 180 km south-east from Tallinn. Tartu University, founded 1632, is 
one of the oldest universities in Northern Europe. The school will be held in 
the new building of the Faculty of Mathematics and Computer Science. Tartu is 
accessible from Tallinn by coach. The coaches run very frequently (1-2 
departures per hour) and the ride takes 2-2.5 hrs.

Tallinn, with 400,000 inhabitants, is the capital city of Estonia, that used 
to be a member of the Hansa League. Tallinn's medieval Old Town is on the 
UNESCO World Heritage List. There are direct flights to Tallinn from London, 
Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Munich, Berlin, Prague, Warsaw, Moscow, 
Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm, Helsinki.
