			       Call For Papers

The Haskell Workshop 2004 is an ACM SIGPLAN sponsored workshop affiliated with
the 2004 International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP). Previous
Haskell Workshops have been held in La Jolla (1995), Amsterdam (1997), Paris
(1999), Montreal (2000), Firenze (2001), Pittsburgh (2002), and Uppsala

     ********************           Scope            ********************

The purpose of the Haskell Workshop is to discuss experience with Haskell,
and possible future developments for the language. The scope of the workshop
includes all aspects of the design, semantics, theory, application, imple-
mentation, and teaching of Haskell. Topics of interest include, but are not
limited to, the following:

  Language Design
    with a focus on possible extensions and modifications of Haskell as
    well as critical discussions of the status quo;

    in the form of a formal treatment of the semantics of the present language
    or future extensions, type systems, and foundations for program analysis
    and transformation;

  Implementation Techniques
    including program analysis and transformation, static and dynamic
    compilation for sequential, parallel, and distributed architectures,
    memory management as well as foreign function and component interfaces;

  Tool Support
    in the form of profilers, tracers, debuggers, pre-processors, and so

  Applications, Practice, and Experience
    with Haskell for scientific and symbolic computing, database, multimedia
    and Web applications, and so forth as well as general experience with
    Haskell in education and industry;

  Functional Pearls
    being elegant, instructive examples of using Haskell.
Papers in the latter two categories need not necessarily report original
research results; they may instead, for example, report practical experience
that will be useful to others, re-usable programming idioms, or elegant new
ways of approaching a problem. The key criterion for such a paper is that it
makes a contribution from which other practitioners can benefit. It is not
enough simply to describe a program!

The programme committee welcomes short papers and may accept them for brief
presentation at the workshop.

     ********************     Submission Details     ********************

Deadline for submission:	 4 June, 2004
Notification of acceptance:	 5 July, 2004
Final submission due:		30 July, 2004 (tentative)
Haskell Workshop:		22 September, 2004

Authors should submit papers in postscript format, formatted for A4 paper,
to Henrik Nilsson (nhn at cs.nott.ac.uk) by 4 June 2004. The length should be
restricted to the equivalent of 5000 words (which is approximately 12 pages
in ACM format). The papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in
the ACM Digital Library.

If you are interested in demonstrating a Haskell-related system or tool,
please send a brief demo proposal to Henrik Nilsson (nhn at cs.nott.ac.uk).
