                              WCFLP 2005
   International Workshop on Curry and Functional Logic Programming

           An ACM SIGPLAN sponsored workshop at ICFP 2005

           Tallinn, Estonia            September 29, 2005

The integration of functional and logic programming has been
extensively studied during the last years. The declarative
multi-paradigm language Curry is one of the important results of this
work since it combines in a seamless way the most relevant features
of functional, logic, and concurrent programming. The development of
Curry is an international initiative intended to provide a common
platform for the research, teaching, and application of integrated
functional logic languages. Various implementations of Curry are
available and they have been used in a number of different

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers interested
in Curry, related functional logic languages, and general aspects of
integrating declarative programming paradigms. It promotes the
cross-fertilizing exchange of ideas and experiences among researches
and students from the different communities interested in the
foundations, applications, and combinations of high-level, declarative
programming languages and related areas.

WCFLP 2005 includes the annual Workshop on Functional and Logic Programming
(WFLP). Previous WFLP editions were: WFLP 2004 (Aachen, Germany),
WFLP 2003 (Valencia, Spain), WFLP 2002 (Grado, Italy), WFLP 2001
(Kiel, Germany), WFLP 2000 (Benicassim, Spain), WFLP'99 (Grenoble, France),
WFLP'98 (Bad Honnef, Germany), WFLP'97 (Schwarzenberg, Germany),
WFLP'96 (Marburg, Germany), WFLP'95 (Schwarzenberg, Germany),
WFLP'94 (Schwarzenberg, Germany), WFLP'93 (Rattenberg, Germany),
and WFLP'92 (Karlsruhe, Germany).


WCFLP 2005 solicits papers in all areas of functional and (constraint)
logic programming, including (but not limited to):

* Language Design: modules and type systems, multi-paradigm languages,
    concurrency and distribution, objects
* Foundations: formal semantics, rewriting and narrowing, type theory
* Implementation: abstract machines, parallelism, compile-time and
    run-time optimizations, interfacing with external languages
* Transformation and Analysis: abstract interpretation, specialization,
    partial evaluation, program transformation, meta-programming
* Software Engineering: design patterns, specification, verification
    and validation, debugging, test generation, programming pearls
* Integration of Paradigms: integration of declarative programming with
    other paradigms such as imperative, object-oriented, concurrent,
    and real-time programming
* Applications: declarative programming in education and industry,
    domain-specific languages, visual/graphical user interfaces,
    embedded systems, WWW applications, knowledge representation and
    machine learning, deductive databases, advanced programming
    environments and tools

The primary focus is on new and original research results but
submissions describing innovative products, prototypes under
development or interesting experiments (e.g., benchmarks) are also


Abstracts of workshop papers will be published in ACM SIGPLAN
Notices. Full workshop proceedings will be published by ACM's
printing vendor and in ACM's Digital Library under the usual
copyright policy. It is intended to publish a
special issue of the best papers after the workshop.
