ACM SIGPLAN Haskell Symposium 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
* 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 Deadline: Friday, May 8th 2009 (3:00 pm, Eastern
* 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
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
If there is sufficient demand, we will try to organize a time
system or tool demonstrations. If you are interested in
Haskell related tool or application, please send a brief demo
to Stephanie Weirich, sweirich at cis.upenn.edu.
