22nd Symposium on Implementation and Applications of Functional  
Languages (IFL 2010)
September 1-3, 2010
Utrecht University
Alphen aan den Rijn, The Netherlands

After a first successful visit to the USA, the Symposium on  
Implementation and Applications of Functional
Languages returns to Europe for its 22nd edition. The hosting  
institution is Utrecht University in the
Netherlands, although the conference itself will take place in the  
ornithological theme park Avifauna
in Alphen aan den Rijn, situated conveniently close to Schiphol  
(Amsterdam Airport). The symposium dates
are September 1-3, 2010.

The goal of the IFL symposia is to bring together researchers actively  
engaged in the implementation and
application of functional and function-based programming languages.  
IFL 2010 will be a venue for researchers
to present and discuss new ideas and concepts, work in progress, and  
publication-ripe results related to
the implementation and application of functional languages and  
function-based programming.

Following the IFL tradition, IFL 2010 will use a post-symposium review  
process to produce formal proceedings
which will be published by Springer Verlag in the Lecture Notes in  
Computer Science series. All participants in
IFL 2010 are invited to submit either a draft paper or an extended  
abstract describing work to be presented
at the symposium. At no time may work submitted to IFL be  
simultaneously submitted to other venues. Here
we follow the ACM Sigplan republication policy as defined on http://www.sigplan.org/republicationpolicy.htm 
The submissions will be screened by the program committee chair to  
make sure they are within the scope of IFL,
and will appear in the draft proceedings distributed at the symposium.  
Submissions appearing in the draft
proceedings are not peer-reviewed publications. After the symposium,  
authors will be given the opportunity
to incorporate the feedback from discussions at the symposium and will  
be invited to submit a revised full
article for the formal review process. These revised submissions will  
be reviewed by the program committee
using prevailing academic standards to select the best articles, which  
will appear in the formal proceedings.


Johan Nordlander of Lulea University, the designer and developer of  
the Timber language, is the invited
speaker at IFL 2010. Timber is a functional programming language that  
draws some of its concepts from
object-oriented programming, and has built-in facilities for  
concurrent execution. The language is
specifically targeted at implementing real-time embedded systems.


IFL welcomes submissions describing practical and theoretical work as  
well as submissions describing
applications and tools. If you are not sure that your work is  
appropriate for IFL 2010, please contact
the PC chair at jur at cs.uu.nl. Topics of interest include, but are not  
limited to:

  language concepts
  type checking
  compilation techniques
  staged compilation
  runtime function specialization
  runtime code generation
  partial evaluation
  (abstract) interpretation
  generic programming techniques
  automatic program generation
  array processing
  concurrent/parallel programming
  concurrent/parallel program execution
  functional programming and embedded systems
  functional programming and web applications
  functional programming and security
  novel memory management techniques
  runtime profiling and performance measurements
  debugging and tracing
  virtual/abstract machine architectures
  validation and verification of functional programs
  tools and programming techniques
  industrial applications of functional programming


Prospective authors are encouraged to submit papers or extended  
abstracts to be published in the draft proceedings
and to present them at the symposium. All contributions must be  
written in English, conform to the Springer-Verlag
LNCS series format and not exceed 16 pages. The draft proceedings will  
appear as a technical report of the
Department of Computer Science of Utrecht University.


The Peter Landin Prize is awarded to the best paper presented at the  
symposium every year.
The honored article is selected by the program committee based on the  
submissions received for
the formal review process. The prize carries a cash award equivalent  
to 150 Euros.
