                            Haskell 08

                ACM SIGPLAN 2008 Haskell Symposium
                Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
                 Thursday, 25th September, 2008

                      FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS


    The Haskell Symposium 2008 is part of the 2008 International  
    on Functional Programming (ICFP) as an associated ACM SIGPLAN  

    The purpose of the Haskell Symposium is to discuss experience with
    Haskell, and future developments for the language. The scope of the
    symposium includes all aspects of the design, semantics, theory,
    application, implementation, 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;
      * Theory, in the form of a formal treatment of the semantics of  
        present language or future extensions, type systems, and
        foundations for program analysis and transformation;
      * Implementations, 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;
      * Tools, in the form of profilers, tracers, debuggers,
        pre-processors, and so forth;
      * Applications, Practice, and Experience, with Haskell for  
        and symbolic computing, database, multimedia and Web  
        and so forth as well as general experience with Haskell in
        education and industry;
      * Functional Pearls, being elegant, instructive examples of using

    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.  
    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!

    Before 2008, the Haskell Symposium was known as the Haskell
    Workshop.  The name change reflects the steady increase of
    influence of the Haskell Workshop on the wider community, as well
    as an increasing numbers of high quality submissions making the
    acceptance process highly competitive.  Previously, Haskell
    Workshops have been held in La Jolla (1995), Amsterdam (1997),
    Paris (1999), Montreal (2000), Firenze (2001), Pittsburgh (2002),
    Uppsala (2003), Snowbird (2004), Tallinn (2005),
    Portland, Oregon (2006), Freiburg (2007).

Submission Details

      * Submission Deadline: Monday, June 23rd 2008
           (9:00 am, Samoa Standard Time, UTC -11)
      * Author Notification: Friday, July 18th 2008
      * Final Papers Due: Monday, July 28th 2008

    Submitted papers should be in portable document format (PDF),  
    using the ACM SIGPLAN style guidelines
    (http://www.acm.org/sigs/sigplan/authorInformation.htm). The  
length is
    restricted to 12 pages, and the font size 9pt. Each submission must
    adhere to SIGPLAN's republication policy, as explained on the web.
    Violation risks summary rejection of the offending submission.

    Paper submissions can be made via the easychair webpage

    Accepted papers will be published by the ACM and will appear in  
the ACM
    Digital Library.

    If there is sufficient demand, we will try to organize a time  
slot for
    system or tool demonstrations. If you are interested in  
demonstrating a
    Haskell related tool or application, please send a brief demo  
    to Andy Gill, andy at galois.com.
