 Functional and Declarative Programming in Education (FDPE05)
 A one day workshop at ICFP05
 Sunday, 25 September 2005, Tallin, Estonia




 Functional and declarative programming plays an important role in
 computing education at all levels. The aim of this workshop is to bring
 together educators and others who are interested in exchanging ideas on
 how to use a functional or declarative programming style in the classroom.


 The workshop will cover a wide spectrum of functional and
 declarative programming techniques:

 - programming courses using traditional functional and declarative
   programming languages (Haskell, Mathematica, ML, Prolog, Scheme, ...);

 - programming courses teaching functional programming in commercial
   languages (e.g. C, C++, or Common LISP);

 - programming courses teaching functional program design in modern
   OO languages like Java, C#, or Eiffel;

 - pedagogic programming environments to support functional and
   declarative programming;

 - teaching tools implemented with functional and declarative languages;

 - declarative programming language extensions and implementations with
   pedagogical relevance;

 - application courses that benefit heavily from functional and
   declarative programming (e.g. theorem proving or hardware design).

 Furthermore, the workshop will also cover all levels of education:
 secondary school; college and university; post-college and continuing
 professional education.


 Submissions are sought in two forms:

 - 30 minute papers, to be reviewed by the workshop organisers and to be
 published in the proceedings.

 - 10 minute slots for `tips and tricks': these will be made available
 through the workshop web site.

 Submissions will be refereed by the workshop organisers who will
 call upon other members of the functional/declarative programming
 community for expert advice.

 Participants who choose to deliver a standard presentation
 are asked to submit a draft PDF paper of five pages; presenters of
 short talks are asked to submit an abstract of 250 words.

 Important dates:
	 Submission deadline: June 5
	 Review deadline: June 15
	 Final decision: June 20
	 Final submission: July 12

 Proceedings will be published by SIGPLAN through ACM's publishers.
