3RD CALL FOR PAPERS
TRENDS IN FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING 2008
RADBOUD UNIVERSITY NIJMEGEN, THE NETHERLANDS
MAY 26-28, 2008
INVITED SPEAKER: PROF. HENK BARENDREGT
http://www.st.cs.ru.nl/AFP_TFP_2008/

[EXTENDED DEADLINE SUBMISSIONS: march 10 2008]
[ SUBMISSION SITE IS OPEN ]
[ REGISTRATION SITE IS OPEN ]

The symposium on Trends in Functional Programming (TFP) is an
international forum for researchers with interests in all aspects of
functional programming languages, focusing on providing a broad view
of current and future trends in Functional Programming. It aspires to
be a lively environment for presenting the latest research results
through acceptance by extended abstracts and full papers. A formal
post-symposium refereeing process selects the best articles presented
at the symposium for publication in a high-profile volume.

TFP 2008 is hosted by the Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands,
and will be held in the rural setting of Center Parcs “Het Heijderbos”,
Heijen (in the vicinity of Nijmegen), The Netherlands.

TFP 2008 is co-located with the 6th Int’l. Summer School on Advanced
Functional Programming (AFP’08), which is held immediately before TFP’08.


SCOPE OF THE SYMPOSIUM
The symposium recognizes that new trends may arise through various
routes. As part of the Symposium's focus on trends we therefore identify
the following five article categories. High-quality articles are
solicited in any of these categories:

Research: leading-edge, previously unpublished research.
Position: on what new trends should or should not be.
Project: descriptions of recently started new projects.
Evaluation: what lessons can be drawn from a finished project.
Overview: summarizing work with respect to a trendy subject.

Articles must be original and not submitted for simultaneous publication
to any other forum. They may consider any aspect of functional
programming: theoretical, implementation-oriented, or more
experience-oriented. Applications of functional programming techniques
to other languages are also within the scope of the symposium.

Contributions on the following subject areas are particularly welcomed:
* Dependently Typed Functional Programming
* Validation and Verification of Functional Programs
* Debugging for Functional Languages
* Functional Programming and Security
* Functional Programming and Mobility
* Functional Programming to Animate/Prototype/Implement Systems from
Formal or Semi-Formal Specifications
* Functional Languages for Telecommunications Applications
* Functional Languages for Embedded Systems
* Functional Programming Applied to Global Computing
* Functional GRIDs
* Functional Programming Ideas in Imperative or Object-Oriented
Settings (and the converse)
* Interoperability with Imperative Programming Languages
* Novel Memory Management Techniques
* Parallel/Concurrent Functional Languages
* Program Transformation Techniques
* Empirical Performance Studies
* Abstract/Virtual Machines and Compilers for Functional Languages
* New Implementation Strategies
* Any new emerging trend in the functional programming area

If you are in doubt on whether your article is within the scope of TFP,
please contact the TFP 2008 program chairs, Peter Achten and Pieter
Koopman, at afp_tfp_2008_at_cs.ru.nl.


SUBMISSION AND DRAFT PROCEEDINGS
Acceptance of articles for presentation at the symposium is based on the
review of full papers (15 pages) and extended abstracts (at least 3 pages)
by the program committee. TFP encourages PhD students to submit papers. PhD
students may request the program committee to provide extensive feedback
on their full papers at the time of submission. Full papers describing
work accepted for presentation must be completed before the symposium for
publication in the draft proceedings and on-line. Further details can be
found at the TFP 2008 website http://www.st.cs.ru.nl/AFP_TFP_2008/.


POST-SYMPOSIUM REFEREEING AND PUBLICATION
In addition to the draft symposium proceedings, we continue the TFP
tradition of publishing a high-quality subset of contributions in the
Intellect series on Trends in Functional Programming.

2ND CALL FOR PARTICIPATION
6TH INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL ON ADVANCED FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING 2008
(AFP ’08)
RADBOUD UNIVERSITY NIJMEGEN AND UTRECHT UNIVERSITY, THE NETHERLANDS
MAY 19-24, 2008
http://www.st.cs.ru.nl/AFP_TFP_2008/
[ EARLY REGISTRATION OPENS ]

AFP is a series of international summer schools which aims to
bring computer scientists, in particular young researchers and
programmers, up to date with the latest advances in practical
advanced functional programming. Functional programming
emphasizes the evaluation of expressions rather than the
execution of commands. We focus on functional programming
techniques in “programming in the real world” and bridge the
gap between results presented at programming conferences and
material from textbooks on functional programming. In this
school you will receive in depth lectures about advanced
functional programming techniques, taught by experts in the
field. Lectures are accompanied by practical problems to be
solved by the students at the school.

AFP 2008 is hosted by the Radboud University Nijmegen, and
Utrecht University, The Netherlands, and will be held in the
rural setting of Center Parcs “Het Heijderbos”, Heijen (in the
vicinity of Nijmegen), The Netherlands.

AFP 2008 is co-located with the 9th Symposium on Trends in
Functional Programming (TFP’08), which is held after AFP’08.


PROGRAM INFORMATION
The following speakers will give the lectures (in alphabetic
order):
Umut Acar (Toyota Technological Institute,
University of Chicago, US)
Richard Bird (University of Oxford, UK)
Olivier Danvy (University of Aarhus, DK)
Johan Jeuring (Utrecht University, NL)
Mark Jones (Portland State University, US)
Ulf Norell (Chalmers University, SE)
Simon Peyton Jones (Microsoft Research, UK)
Rinus Plasmeijer (Radboud University Nijmegen, NL)

During the summer school, all participants receive printed
lecture notes. Participants are expected to have a notebook,
in order to be able to participate with the practical problems.

After the summer school, all lecture notes will be revised,
reviewed, and published in the LNCS series of Springer. All
registered participants receive a copy of these lecture notes.


VENUE INFORMATION
AFP (and TFP) is held in The Netherlands, at Center Parcs “Het
Heijderbos” which is a holiday resort in the woodlands near the
city of Nijmegen. We accomodate participants in DeLuxe Cottages,
each of which has three separate bed-rooms, shared bathroom,
toilet, kitchen, and terrace. Cottages will be shared by three
participants. If you wish to reduce costs, you can choose to
share a bedroom. The summer school and symposium will take place
in the business center of the venue. Breakfast, lunch and diner
is included within the limits of the venue. The resort features,
amongst others, a sub-tropical swimming pool (free for
participants), restaurants, shops, water sports lake, midget golf
court, squash court, and outdoor and indoor tennis courts.

Nijmegen is considered to be the oldest city of the Netherlands,
being approximately 2000 years old. Nijmegen is located at the
east border of the Netherlands, near Germany. Nijmegen can be
reached easily from several airports such as Schiphol airport,
Eindhoven airport, and Düsseldorf airport, as well as by train
and car. Conveniently close to Center Parcs “Het Heijderbos” you
will find airport Weeze in Germany. The venue Center Parcs “Het
Heijderbos” can be reached from Nijmegen by train to Boxmeer
(25 minutes). From there you will need to order a taxi. The venue
can also be reached by car: parking is free for participants of
AFP and TFP.


SUMMER SCHOOL FEES
AFP 2008 includes accommodation, conference, breakfast – lunch –
diner, speakers, and proceedings costs. The early registration fee
is € 995; the late registration fee is € 1095. Please note that if
you require financial support, you can apply for a grant (see
below).


GRANT INFORMATION
We have taken great care to reduce the registration cost as much
as possible. We can grant a subsidy for a limited number of PhD
student participants for whom the costs are still too high. In
order to apply for this subsidy, you need to send (by surface mail
or e-mail) a request for subsidy which contains your personal
information, affiliation, a description of your current status,
project description, a motivation why you should receive the grant,
and a recommendation from your PhD supervisor. This letter should
arrive before april 7 2008 to:

Rinus Plasmeijer
Radboud University Nijmegen
Toernooiveld 1
6525ED Nijmegen
rinus_at_cs.ru.nl

You will receive a notification whether your request has been
granted before april 14 2008.
