                ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Symposium 2009
                     Edinburgh, Scotland, UK
                        September 3, 2009

                        CALL FOR PAPERS


    The ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Symposium 2009 will be co-located with the
    2009 International Conference on Functional Programming (ICFP).

    The purpose of the Haskell Symposium is to discuss experiences 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. The key criterion for such a paper is that it makes a
    contribution from which other Haskellers 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 both the steady increase of
    influence of the Haskell Workshop on the wider community as well as
    the increasing number of high quality submissions. The acceptance
    process is highly competitive.  After eleven Haskell Workshops
    between 1995 and 2007, the first Haskell Symposium was held in
    Victoria in 2008.

Submission Details

      * Submission Deadline: Friday, May 8th 2009  (3:00 pm, Eastern  
US Time)
      * Author Notification: Monday, June 1st 2009
      * Final Papers Due   : Monday, June 15th 2009

    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.

    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 Stephanie Weirich, sweirich at cis.upenn.edu.
